mandino_ #psalm 12 #150daypsalmchallenge commentary from christnotes.org 1. We have a God to go to, from whom we may ask and expect the redress of all our grievances. 2. God will certainly punish and restrain false and proud men. 3. God will work deliverance for his oppressed people. His help is given in the fittest time. Though men are false, God is faithful; though they are not to be trusted, God is. The preciousness of God's word is compared to silver refined to the highest degree. How many proofs have been given of its power and truth! God will secure his chosen remnant, however bad the times are. As long as the world stands, there will be a generation of proud and wicked men. But all God's people are put into the hands of Christ our Saviour; there they are in safety, for none can pluck them thence; being built on Him, the Rock, they are safe, notwithstanding temptation or persecution come with ever so much force upon them. #Jesus #christian #christ #deliverance #delivered #salvation #savior #OGOD 23h

mandino_ #psalm 11 #150daypsalmchallenge commentary from blueletterbible.org a. For the LORD is righteous: this was a comfort and encouragement to David. When we are rebelling against the LORD, His righteousness is no comfort to us. But David knew he was the innocent victim of persecution, and he knew the righteous LORD would take up his cause.

b.He loves righteousness: David knew that as he walked righteously, he would keep [himself] in the love of God. (Jude 21) It isn't that we must earn God's love by our personal righteousness; instead, our pursuit and practice of righteousness keeps us flowing in the benefits of God's love.

i. God's love extends everywhere. Nothing can separate us from God's love, and He loved us while we were still sinners (Romans 5:8). But we can deny ourselves the benefits of God's love.

ii. People who don't keep themselves in the love of God end up living as if they are on the dark side of the moon. The sun is always out there, always shining, but they are never in a position to receive the light or warmth of the sun. They are like the Prodigal Son of Luke 15, who was always loved by the father, but for a time not he did not benefit from that love.
i. God shines His face on His people. This speaks of "an eye of approbation, and true and tender affection, and watchful and gracious providence; which is oft signified by God's beholding or looking upon men" (Poole). In fact, the last line of the priestly blessing of Numbers 6:26 is, The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.

ii. God's people will see Him. I will see Your face in righteousness (Psalm 17:15). Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God (Matthew 5:8). In fact, the desire to behold God is one of the greatest motivations to an upright life and heart.

mandino_ #psalm 10 #150daypsalmchallenge commentary from christnotes.org (Read Psalm 10:12-18)
The psalmist speaks with astonishment, at the wickedness of the wicked, and at the patience and forbearance of God. God prepares the heart for prayer, by kindling holy desires, and strengthening our most holy faith, fixing the thoughts, and raising the affections, and then he graciously accepts the prayer. The preparation of the heart is from the Lord, and we must seek unto him for it. Let the poor, afflicted, persecuted, or tempted believer recollect, that Satan is the prince of this world, and that he is the father of all the ungodly. The children of God cannot expect kindness, truth, or justice from such persons as crucified the Lord of glory. But this once suffering Jesus, now reigns as King over all the earth, and of his dominion there shall be no end. Let us commit ourselves unto him, humbly trusting in his mercy. He will rescue the believer from every temptation, and break the arm of every wicked oppressor, and bruise Satan under our feet shortly. But in heaven alone will all sin and temptation be shut out, though in this life the believer has a foretaste of deliverance. #Jesus #christ #christian #prayer #grace #deliverance #real #believe #truth

mandino_ #psalm 9 #150daypsalmchallenge commentary from christnotes.org (Read Psalm 9:1-10)
If we would praise God acceptably, we must praise him in sincerity, with our whole heart. When we give thanks for some one particular mercy, we should remember former mercies. Our joy must not be in the gift, so much as in the Giver. The triumphs of the Redeemer ought to be the triumphs of the redeemed. The almighty power of God is that which the strongest and stoutest of his enemies are no way able to stand before. We are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth, and that with him there is no unrighteousness. His people may, by faith, flee to him as their Refuge, and may depend on his power and promise for their safety, so that no real hurt shall be done to them. Those who know him to be a God of truth and faithfulness, will rejoice in his word of promise, and rest upon that. Those who know him to be an everlasting Father, will trust him with their souls as their main care, and trust in him at all times, even to the end; and by constant care seek to approve themselves to him in the whole course of their lives. Who is there that would not seek him, who never hath forsaken those that seek Him? #Jesus #christ #christian #praise #faith #OGOD

mandino_ #psalm #150daypsalmchallenge commentary from Christnotes.org We are to consider the heavens, that man thus may be directed to set his affections on things above. What is man, so mean a creature, that he should be thus honoured! so sinful a creature, that he should be thus favoured! Man has sovereign dominion over the inferior creatures, under God, and is appointed their lord. This refers to Christ. In Hebrews 2:6-8, the apostle, to prove the sovereign dominion of Christ, shows he is that Man, that Son of man, here spoken of, whom God has made to have dominion over the works of his hands. The greatest favour ever showed to the human race, and the greatest honour ever put upon human nature, were exemplified in the Lord Jesus. With good reason does the psalmist conclude as he began, Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth, which has been honoured with the presence of the Redeemer, and is still enlightened by his gospel, and governed by his wisdom and power! What words can reach his praises, who has a right to our obedience as our Redeemer? #Jesus #christ #christian #creator #creation #OGOD #monday 5d

mandino_ #psalm 7 #150daypsalmchallenge commentary from Christnotes.org (Read Psalm 7:1-9)
David flees to God for succour. But Christ alone could call on Heaven to attest his uprightness in all things. All His works were wrought in righteousness; and the prince of this world found nothing whereof justly to accuse him. Yet for our sakes, submitting to be charged as guilty, he suffered all evils, but, being innocent, he triumphed over them all. The plea is, "For the righteous God trieth the hearts and the reins." He knows the secret wickedness of the wicked, and how to bring it to an end; he is witness to the secret sincerity of the just, and has ways of establishing it. When a man has made peace with God about all his sins, upon the terms of grace and mercy, through the sacrifice of the Mediator, he may, in comparison with his enemies, appeal to God's justice to decide. #Jesus #christ #christian #grace #mercy #judge #just #sunday #funday #church #OGOD

mandino_ #psalm 6 #150daypsalmchallenge commentary from blueletterbible.org I. The representation he makes to God of his grievances. He pours out his complaint before him. Whither else should a child go with his complaints, but to his father? 1. He complains of bodily pain and sickness (v. 2): My bones are vexed. His bones and his flesh, like Job's, were touched. Though David was a king, yet he was sick and pained; his imperial crown could not keep his head from aching. Great men are men, and subject to the common calamities of human life. Though David was a stout man, a man of war from his youth, yet this could not secure him from distempers, which will soon make even the strong men to bow themselves. Though David was a good man, yet neither could his goodness keep him in health...To the living God we must, at such a time, address ourselves, who is the only physician both of body and mind, and not to the Assyrians, not to the god of Ekron. #Jesus #christ #christian #mercy #sing #grace #OGOD 1w

mandino_ #psalm 4 #150daypsalmchallenge #commentary from blueletterbible.org i. Each Christian should have the same assurance. They should be confident that God will hear their prayers. When prayer seems ineffective it is worth it to take a spiritual inventory to see if there is a reason for unanswered prayer. The Bible tells us there are many reasons why prayer may not be answered. - Not abiding in Jesus (John 15:7)
- Unbelief (Matthew 17:20-21)
- Failure to Fast (Matthew 17:21)
- A Bad Marriage Relationship (1 Peter 3:7)
- Unconfessed Sin (James 5:16)
- Lying and Deceitfulness (Psalm 17:1)
- Lack of Bible Reading and Bible Teaching (Proverbs 28:9)
- Trusting in the Length or Form of Prayer (Matthew 6:7) #christian #prayer #OGOD

mandino_ #psalm 3 #150daypsalmchallenge amplified version #commentary from Christnotes.org See what God is to his people, what he will be, what they have found him, what David found in him. 1. Safety; a shield for me; which denotes the advantage of that protection. 2. Honour; those whom God owns for his, have true honour put upon them. 3. Joy and deliverance. If, in the worst of times, God's people can lift up their heads with joy, knowing that all shall work for good to them, they will own God as giving them both cause and hearts to rejoice. #Jesus #christian #grace #sufficient #truth #OGOD 1w

mandino_ Psalm 1 the message version. #150daypsalmchallenge #day1 who else is about that life???? The character of a good man is here given by the rules he chooses to walk by and to take his measures from. What we take at our setting out, and at every turn, for the guide of our conversation, whether the course of this world or the word of God, is of material consequence. #psalm #bible #christian #christ #OGOD 2w
