Welcome to Ning

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold is as pictures of silver.(Prov.25:11) It is so important to speak the right words to people at the right time to produce the right results. When you think of apples of gold in pictures of silver, then you are thinking of wealth and excellence. When we speak wisdom into the lives of others we are making them wealthy. Therefore we must seek God for He is the source of all wisdom and He will give us just the right words needed at the right time.

  • #Cast me not away from thy presence and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation and uphold me with thy free spirit. Then will I teach transgressors thy ways and sinners shall be converted unto thee. Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness. O Lord, open thou my lips and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem. Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar. Psalm 51:11-19

    King David ends this prayer of confession with cast me not away from thy presence and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation and uphold me with thy free spirit. He had lost the joy of his salvation, but not his salvation. This is what happens when we sin against God. That is why we must be quick to repent and offer the prayer of confession. The Holy Spirit would be taken from an old testament saint who sinned and failed to repent. That is why he prayed not to take the Spirit from me. We are blessed with the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit therefore, we do not have to pray that He not be taken from us.

  • #Behold, I was shaped in iniquity and in sin did my mother conceive me. Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts and in the hidden part thou shalt make me know wisdom. Purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean; wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. Make me hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. Hide thy face from my sins and blot out all mine iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God and renew a right spirit within me. Psalm 51:5-10

    King David acknowledges he was conceived in iniquity and in sin his mother conceived him. Then he prayed to create in me a clean heart, O God and renew a right spirit within me. This is the ultimate prayer of repentance.

  • #Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according to unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions and my sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only have I sinned and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest and clear when thou judgest. Psalm 51:1-4

    King David is pouring out his heart in sorrow before a holy God because of his sin with Bathsheba and his appeals to the mercy of God is complete. He prays to wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgression and my sin is ever before me. He knows that against God only have I sinned and done this evil in thy sight. Thus he knows that God is justified when thou speakest and clear when thou judgest. This serves as a mighty example of how to repent of one's sins before a holy God who is able to forgive and save to the uttermost those that come unto Him. It is my prayer that we will come before God with our contrition and repent so that we too can find forgiveness from our sins.

  • #And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee and thou shalt glorify me. But unto the wicked God saith, what hast thou to do to declare my statutes or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? Seeing thou hatest instruction and castest my words behind thee. When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentest with him and hast been partakers with adulterers., Thou givest thy mouth to evil and thy tongue frameth deceit. Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son. These things hast thou done and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such a one as thyself: but I will reprove thee and set them in order before thine eyes. Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces and there be none to deliver. Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God. Psalm 50:15-23

    Call upon God in the day of trouble and He will deliver thee and thou shalt glorify Him. Consider this whoso offereth praise glorifieth God and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will God shew the salvation of Jehovah God. So make sure that you do not forget God, but turn to Him with your whole heart and He will hear thee in the hour of trouble.

  • #The mighty God even the LORD hath spoken and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof. Out of Zion the perfection of beauty God hath shined. Our God shall come and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before Him and it shall be very tempestuous round about Him. He shall call to the heavens from above and to the earth that He may judge His people. Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice. And the heavens shall declare His righteousness for God is judge Himself. Selah. Hear, O my people and I will speak O Israel and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God. I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offering, to have been continually before me. I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds. For every beast of the forest is mine and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains and the wild beasts of the field are mine. If I were hungry I would not tell thee, for the world is mine and the fulness thereof. Will I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of goats? Offer unto God thanksgiving and pay the vows unto the most High: Psalm 50:1-14

    Happy Thanksgiving to all and pay thy vows unto the God most High for He is holy and worthy to be praised in the earth, for all the fowls and the beasts are His. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. So give Him the praise that He alone deserves. 

  • #Be not thou afraid when one is made rich when the glory of his house is increased; For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him. Though while he lived he blessed his soul and men will praise thee when thou doest well to thyself. He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light. Man, that is in honor and understandeth is like the beast that perishes. Psalm 49:16-20

    Enjoy your wealth while you are alive for when you are gone it will be left for others to enjoy. Even while you live people will say that you blessed your soul and did well for yourself. Yet you will go to the generation of your fathers so life is a vanity. Thus it behooves man, to fear God and keep His commandments for He shall bring every work into judgment. So give thanks in all things for in Him we live and have our being.  

     

  • #(For the redemption of their soul is precious and it ceaseth for ever:) That he should still live forever and not see corruption. For he seeth that wise men die, likewise, the fool and the brutish person perish and leave their wealth to others. Their inward thought is that their houses shall continue forever and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names. Nevertheless, man being in honor abideth not: he is like the beast that perishes. This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approves their sayings. Selah. Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling. But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for He shall receive me. Psalm 49:7-15

    Jesus is the resurrection and the life, he that believes in Him though he is dead shall live. He is the one that redeems my soul from the power of the grave. He shall receive me. For, to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. So we do not mourn as those who have no have no hope.

  • #Hear this all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world: Both low and high, rich and poor together. My mouth shall speak of wisdom and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding. I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark sayings upon a harp. Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about? They that trust in their wealth and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give God a ransom for him. Psalm 49:1-7

    This Psalm is about the Lord Jesus opened, His mouth in parables and riddled sayings upon the harp. He told the disciples it is for you to know the mysteries of the kingdom. As David says wherefore should I fear in the days of evil when the sins of my heels shall compass me about? He says those that trust in their wealth cannot by any means redeem his brother or give to God a ransom for his life. So be thankful that our elder brother the Lord Jesus Christ went to the Cross to pay the ransom for our sins and we are forever thankful for this gift.

  • #According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness. Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments. Walk about Zion and go round about her: tell the towers thereof. Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following. For this God is our God forever and ever: He will be our guide even unto death. Psalm 48:10-14

    God is to be praised unto the ends of the earth: cause His right hand is full of righteousness. For this God is our God forever and ever: He will be our guide even unto death. Therefore, we have nothing to fear for God is our light and salvation. Praise Him today all ye peoples. 

  • #Fear took hold upon them there and pain, as a woman in travail. Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind. As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. Selah. We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God in the midst of thy temple. Psalm 48:6-9

    Jehovah God will bring fear on the ships of Tarshish as with an east wind, as the pain of a woman in travail. Thank God for the angel armies that fight for His people forever. Selah.
