Psalm 18 and Proverbs 10 :)

proverbs-28-13

Have A Wonderful and Blessed Day!!! A Psalm and A Proverb!!!

Psalm 18:22 For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.

Psalm 18:23 I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.

Psalm 18:24 Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.

Psalm 18:25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;

Psalm 18:26 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.

Psalm 18:27 For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.

Psalm 18:28 For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.

 

This is a Psalm written by David of thanksgiving. The LORD had delivered him from the hand of all his enemies. It also is telling us what can be for us, if we follow the same path. We need to stand upright, not to forsake all his judgments, keep ourselfs from iniquity, (Injustice; unrighteousness; a deviation from rectitude; Your iniquities have separated between you and your God. Is.59.).

We are to show mercy unto others, this is pleasing unto the LORD, and as he has great mercy for us we need to also be merciful to others. (MER’CIFULNESS, n. Tenderness towards offenders; willingness to forbear punishment; readiness to forgive).

 

Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Proverbs 28:13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

 

This Psalm is from David being thankful but it is also teaching us how we need to be to others, and how to please the Father. It shows us some very IMPORTANT ways to act in our life.

When all thy mercies, O my God,
my rising soul surveys,
transported with the view, I’m lost
in wonder, love, and praise.

Unnumbered comforts to my soul
thy tender care bestowed,
before my infant heart conceived
from whom those comforts flowed.

When in the slippery paths of youth
with heedless steps I ran,
thine arm unseen conveyed me safe,
and led me up to man.

Ten thousand thousand precious gifts
my daily thanks employ,
and not the least a cheerful heart
which tastes those gifts with joy.

Through every period of my life
thy goodness I’ll pursue,
and after death in distant worlds
the glorious theme renew.

Through all eternity to thee,
a joyful song I’ll raise;
for O, eternity’s too short
to utter all thy praise.

 

Proverbs 10:7 The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.

Proverbs 10:8 The wise in heart will receive commandments: but a prating fool shall fall.

Proverbs 10:9 He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.

Proverbs 10:10 He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall.

Proverbs 10:11 The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.

Proverbs 10:12 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.

Proverbs 10:13 In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.

Proverbs 10:14 Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.

 

Again as said many times the book of Proverbs is a teaching real life book. It will go back and forth this is what to do. Then next half it will say this is what you DON’T want to do.

Proverbs 10:7 The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.

The first part of verse 7: The memory of the just is blessed

a Just man the upright man is is blessed, when we look back on someones life that was godly, walked uprightly we look at them fondly, with a sense of respect.

The second part: but the name of the wicked shall rot.

When we look at an evil man, the wicked like Hitler, everyone has the same feeling, thoughts, awful man, one of Satan’s children, horrible animal.

Most often this book is self explanatory. Sometimes we don’t want to understand some of the verses are very blunt and sad. Read these few little verses and see how the wicked, and evil are spoke of. Isn’t it far better to live for the LORD?

 

The Bible stands like a rock undaunted
‘Mid the raging storms of time;
Its pages burn with the truth eternal,
And they glow with a light sublime.

The Bible stands tho’ the hills may tumble,
It will firmly stand when the earth shall crumble;
I will plant my feet on its firm foundation,
For the Bible stands,
The Bible stands.

The Bible stands like a mountain tow’ring
Far above the works of man;
Its truth by none ever was refuted,
And destroy it they never can.

The Bible stands tho’ the hills may tumble,
It will firmly stand when the earth shall crumble;
I will plant my feet on its firm foundation,
For the Bible stands,
The Bible stands.

The Bible stands and it will forever,
When the world has passed away;
By inspiration it has been given,
All its precepts I will obey.

The Bible stands tho’ the hills may tumble,
It will firmly stand when the earth shall crumble;
I will plant my feet on its firm foundation,
For the Bible stands,
The Bible stands.

The Bible stands every test we give it,
For its Author is divine;
By grace alone I will expect to live it,
And to prove it and make it mine.

The Bible stands tho’ the hills may tumble,
It will firmly stand when the earth shall crumble;
I will plant my feet on its firm foundation,
For the Bible stands,
The Bible stands.

Love and Prayers
