Deliver [ ransom and redeem ] me from the oppression of man [ evil people ]: so will I keep thy precepts [ laws and decrees ]. – Psalms 119:134

Dearly beloved brethren, there is something biblical righteousness will cause you.

It will cause you hatred, opposition and oppression of wicked people. See what the scriptures says.

Psalms 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
2Ti 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

But then both in the old and new testament, the good Lord, promised to deliver His people. See the following passages.

Jeremiah 15:20-21 And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee: for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the LORD. 15:21 And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.
Luke 1:74-75 That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear, 1:75 In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
Colossians 1:12-13 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
Hebrews 2:14-15 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; 2:15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
Deliver [ ransom and redeem ] me from the oppression of man [ evil people ]: so will I keep thy precepts [ laws and decrees ]. – Psalms 119:134

This knowledge of the deliverance of the Lord, was what King David was appealing to, for God to deliver him from his adversaries. See it yourself.

Deliver [ ransom and redeem ] me from the oppression of man [ evil people ]: so will I keep thy precepts [ laws and decrees ]. – Psalms 119:134

See this same passage in other Bible versions.

NLT
Psalms 119:134 Ransom me from the oppression of evil people; then I can obey your commandments.

AMP. BIBLE
Psalm 119:134 Deliver me from the oppression of man; so will I keep Your precepts [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them]. [Luke 1:74.]

See this same passage Amplified.

Here, 1. David prays that he might live a quiet and peaceable life, and might not be harassed and discomposed by those that studied to be vexatious: “Deliver me from the oppression of man – man, whom God can control, and whose power is limited. Let them know themselves to be but men (Psalms 9:20), and let me be delivered out of the hands of my enemies, that I may serve God without fear; so will I keep thy precepts. ” Not but that he would keep God’s precepts, though he should be continued under oppression; “but so shall I keep thy precepts more cheerfully and with more enlargement of heart, my bonds being loosed.” Then we may expect temporal blessings when we desire them with this in our eye, that we may serve God the better.

Beloved are you presently going through oppression or persecution. Do what king David, did and God shall deliver you too in Jesus name.

Job 5:19 He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee.
Deliver [ ransom and redeem ] me from the oppression of man [ evil people ]: so will I keep thy precepts [ laws and decrees ]. – Psalms 119:134

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 5, 2021 | LESSONS FROM PSALMS | Order my steps in thy word

Order my steps [ Direct and guide my footsteps ] in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me. - Psalms 119:133
Order my steps [ Direct and guide my footsteps ] in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me. - Psalms 119:133

Order my steps [ Direct and guide my footsteps ] in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me. – Psalms 119:133

Order my steps [ Direct and guide my footsteps ] in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me. – Psalms 119:133

Dearly beloved brethren, the best of saints and all the saints of God, of all generations are blind without guidance of the Lord.

Isa 42:16. And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not;I will lead them in paths that they have not known:I will make darkness light before them,and crooked things straight.These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.

The Bible says all the saints of God and you in particular, are blind.

Isaiah 42:19 Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD’s servant?

But then God in love wants to teach you to profit by guiding you.

Psalms 32:8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
Isaiah 48:17-18 Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. 48:18 O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:

Order my steps [ Direct and guide my footsteps ] in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me. – Psalms 119:133

This guidance is done through the unfailing unchanging eternal words of God.

Psalms 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Proverbs 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

The understanding of this divine guidance by King David through God’s words, compelled him to pray, pleading with God to order his steps.. See it yourself.

Order my steps [ Direct and guide my footsteps ] in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me. – Psalms 119:133

See this same passage in other Bible version’s.

NLT
Psalms 119:133 Guide my steps by your word, so I will not be overcome by evil.

AMP BIBLE
Psalm 119:133 Establish my steps and direct them by [means of] Your word; let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

Beloved, see this same passage amplified.

Here David prays for two great spiritual blessings, and is, in this verse, as earnest for the good work of God in him as, in the verse before, for the good-will of God towards him. He prays, 1. For direction in the paths of duty: “Order my steps in thy word; having led me into the right way, let every step I take in that way be under the guidance of thy grace.” We ought to walk by rule; all the motions of the soul must not only be kept within the bounds prescribed by the word, so as not to transgress them, but carried out in the paths prescribed by the word, so as not to trifle in them. And therefore we must beg of God that by his good Spirit he would order our steps accordingly.

Beloved, follow this good example and earnestly pray for God’s divine guidance for the rest of your life.

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Order my steps [ Direct and guide my footsteps ] in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me. – Psalms 119:133

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 4, 2021 | LESSONS FROM PSALMS | Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me,

Look thou upon me, and be merciful [ gracious and favorable ] unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name. - Psalms 119:132
Look thou upon me, and be merciful [ gracious and favorable ] unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name. - Psalms 119:132

Look thou upon me, and be merciful [ gracious and favorable ] unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name. – Psalms 119:132

Look thou upon me, and be merciful [ gracious and favorable ] unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name. – Psalms 119:132

Dearly beloved brethren, we are grateful to God for His unfailing ceaseless mercies through which, we are receiving unmerited divers blessings.

It was through His mercies, you were saved and then, other blessings followed after.

Titus 3:4-6 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 3:6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;

You must continue to be mindful of the fact that you are what you are, not because of what you have done, but, because of all He had done for you in particular, unmerited.

Rom 9:16. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

These unmerited mercies were the ground for which king David was appealing to God to remember him and answer his prayers. See it yourself.

Look thou upon me, and be merciful [ gracious and favorable ] unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name. – Psalms 119:132

See this same passage in other Bible version’s.

NLT
Psalms 119:132 Come and show me your mercy, as you do for all who love your name.

AMP BIBLE
Psalm 119:132 Look upon me, be merciful unto me, and show me favor, as is Your way to those who love Your name.

Beloved, see this same passage amplified.

Here is, 1. David’s request for God’s favour to himself: “Look graciously upon me; let me have thy smiles, and the light of thy countenance. Take cognizance of me and my affairs, and be merciful to me; let me taste the sweetness of thy mercy and receive the gifts of thy mercy.” See how humble his petition is. He asks not for the operations of God’s hand, only for the smiles of his face; a good look is enough; and for that he does not plead merit, but implores mercy.

Over and over, the Bible reveals that king David reaching out to God, pleading for His ceaseless unmerited mercies. See some of them.

Psalms 119:41 Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD, even thy salvation, according to thy word.
Psalms 119:58 I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word.
Psalms 119:76 Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.
Psalms 119:77 Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law is my delight.

Beloved you also can reach out to God, concerning this your present challenges and ask for His promised mercies.. You shall never be denied in Jesus name.

Hebrews 4:15-16 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 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.
Look thou upon me, and be merciful [ gracious and favorable ] unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name. – Psalms 119:132

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 3, 2021 | LESSONS FROM PSALMS | I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments.

I opened my mouth, and panted [ I pant with expectation and anticipation ]: for I longed for thy commandments. - Psalms 119:131
I opened my mouth, and panted [ I pant with expectation and anticipation ]: for I longed for thy commandments. - Psalms 119:131

I opened my mouth, and panted [ I pant with expectation and anticipation ]: for I longed for thy commandments. – Psalms 119:131

I opened my mouth, and panted [ I pant with expectation and anticipation ]: for I longed for thy commandments [ decrees and laws ]. – Psalms 119:131

Dearly beloved brethren, your earthly and eternal wellbeing is a function of what you do with God’s eternal unchanging unfailing words of God in the Bible.

Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Because of this, there are numerous exhortations in the Bible, on what Bible believing believers like you should do with it. See some of them.

1. Desire it more than anything else.

1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

2. Buy it with the entirety of your strength and don’t sell it.

Proverbs 23:23 Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.

3. Esteem it more than anything else.

Job 23:12 Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.

4. Delight and meditate on it tirelessly.

Psalms 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
I opened my mouth, and panted [ I pant with expectation and anticipation ]: for I longed for thy commandments [ decrees and laws ]. – Psalms 119:131

The reasons for all these remain simple. Your thirst for God can only be fulfilled through panting after the word of God.

Psalms 38:10. My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
Psalms 42:1-2 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. 42:2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?

King David had insatiable thirst for God. He discovered the only way to accomplish this noble desire, was to discover and be obedient to the commandments of the Lord. See it yourself.

I opened my mouth, and panted [ I pant with expectation and anticipation ]: for I longed for thy commandments [ decrees and laws ]. – Psalms 119:131

See this same passage in other Bible version.

AMP BIBLE
I opened my mouth and panted [with eager desire], for I longed for Your commandments.

See the same passage amplified.

Here is, 1. The desire David had towards the word of God: I longed for thy commandments. When he was under a forced absence from God’s ordinances he longed to be restored to them again; when he enjoyed ordinances he greedily sucked in the word of God, as new-born babes desire the milk. When Christ is formed in the soul there are gracious longings, unaccountable to one that is a stranger to the work. 2. The degree of that desire appearing in the expressions of it: I opened my mouth and panted, as one overcome with hear, or almost stifled, pants for a mouthful of fresh air. Thus strong, thus earnest, should our desires be towards God and the remembrance of his name,

Beloved, like king David, you also will have desired understanding of the person of God and Christ Jesus, as you delight, meditate and obey the entirety of God’s words in the Bible.

1Ti 4:15. Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.

The good Lord shall help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.

I opened my mouth, and panted [ I pant with expectation and anticipation ]: for I longed for thy commandments [ decrees and laws ]. – Psalms 119:131

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 2, 2021 | LESSONS FROM PSALMS | The entrance of thy words giveth light

The entrance of thy words giveth light [ opening of Thy words enlightens ]; it giveth understanding unto the simple. - Psalms 119:130
The entrance of thy words giveth light [ opening of Thy words enlightens ]; it giveth understanding unto the simple. - Psalms 119:130

The entrance of thy words giveth light [ opening of Thy words enlightens ]; it giveth understanding unto the simple. – Psalms 119:130

The entrance of thy words giveth light [ opening of Thy words enlightens ]; it giveth understanding unto the simple. – Psalms 119:130

Dearly beloved brethren, I am sure and persuaded that you know that Jesus Christ is the light of the world to lighten your ways and help you in particular not to stumble. You shall not stumble in Jesus name.

John 1:4-9 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 1:8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
Jn 9:5. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

When you believe and follow Him wholeheartedly, then you shall not walk in darkness.

Jn 12:46. I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
The entrance of thy words giveth light [ opening of Thy words enlightens ]; it giveth understanding unto the simple. – Psalms 119:130

The entirety of God’s words are lamps to lighten your ways.

Proverbs 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
Psalms 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

In addition the word of God is to make you a Bible believing believer to be wise.

Psalms 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
Psalms 119:98 Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.
Proverbs 1:4 To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.
The entrance of thy words giveth light [ opening of Thy words enlightens ]; it giveth understanding unto the simple. – Psalms 119:130

When you are committed to reading the word of God in the Bible, it opens your understanding of all things.

Psalms 119:99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.
Psalms 119:100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.
Psalms 119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

The power of God’s words to give perfect understanding to its reader was the knowledge king David was passing across to all and sundry, who will take interest in reading the Bible. See it yourself.

The entrance of thy words giveth light [ opening of Thy words enlightens ]; it giveth understanding unto the simple. – Psalms 119:130

See this same passage in other Bible version’s.

NLT
The teaching of your word gives light, so even the simple can understand.

AMP BIBLE
The entrance and unfolding of Your words give light; their unfolding gives understanding (discernment and comprehension) to the simple.

Beloved, see this same passage amplified.

Here is, 1. The great use for which the word of God was intended, to give light, that is, to give understanding, to give us to understand that which will be of use to us in our travels through this world; and it is the outward and ordinary means by which the Spirit of God enlightens the understanding of all that are sanctified. God’s testimonies are not only wonderful for the greatness of them, but useful, as a light in a dark place.

So take advantage of the knowledge king David was passing across and become wiser and also have perfect understanding in all things, as you study the word.

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

May the Lord Jesus Christ the light of the world, open your understanding of the scriptures in Jesus name.

Luke 24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
The entrance of thy words giveth light [ opening of Thy words enlightens ]; it giveth understanding unto the simple. – Psalms 119:130

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 1, 2021 | LESSONS FROM PSALMS | Thy testimonies are wonderful

Thy testimonies [ decrees, laws, statues ] are wonderful [ wondrous and gracious ]: therefore doth my soul keep them. - Psalms 119:12
Thy testimonies [ decrees, laws, statues ] are wonderful [ wondrous and gracious ]: therefore doth my soul keep them. - Psalms 119:12

Thy testimonies [ decrees, laws, statues ] are wonderful [ wondrous and gracious ]: therefore doth my soul keep them. – Psalms 119:12

Thy testimonies [ decrees, laws. commandments, statues ] are wonderful [ wondrous and gracious ]: therefore doth my soul keep them. – Psalms 119:129

Dearly beloved brethren the greatest gift, our loving Father in heaven has given His saints and believers are His unfailing unchanging eternal words .

These words are so wonderful and when it pleased God to open your eyes , you shall discover wondrous things.

Psalms 119:18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

Beloved the wondrous things you shall discover are the wonderful works of the Word personified, Jesus Christ, our Master and Lord.

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 25:1 O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
Thy testimonies [ decrees, laws. commandments, statues ] are wonderful [ wondrous and gracious ]: therefore doth my soul keep them. – Psalms 119:129

In addition, you shall discover the wondrous things of the word are the testimonies of our Master and Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

No wonder, our Lord Jesus Christ said, you should search the scriptures and you shall discover from the sixty six books of the Bible, nothing else apart from Him.

John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

Your discovery of Jesus Christ from the entirety of the Bible, is the most wonderful knowledge

Psalms 139:6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

Beloved there are three prophets in the Bible that had unusual revelations about Jesus. King David, Isaiah and Daniel.

These awesome revelations of Jesus Christ from the scriptures made king David to regard God’s words as wonderful. See it yourself.

Thy testimonies [ decrees, laws. commandments, statues ] are wonderful [ wondrous and gracious ]: therefore doth my soul keep them. – Psalms 119:129

Beloved see this scripture in other Bible versions.

NLT

]Your laws are wonderful. No wonder I obey them!

AMP BIBLE

Your testimonies are wonderful [far exceeding anything conceived by man]; therefore my [penitent] self keeps them [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them].

See this scripture amplified.

See here how David was affected towards the word of God. 1. He admired it, as most excellent in itself: Thy testimonies are wonderful. The word of God gives us admirable discoveries of God, and Christ, and another world; admirable proofs of divine love and grace. The majesty of the style, the purity of the matter, the harmony of the parts, are all wonderful. Its effects upon the consciences of men, both for conviction and comfort, are wonderful; and it is a sign that we are not acquainted with God’s testimonies, or do not understand them, if we do not admire them. 2. He adhered to it as of constant use to him: “Therefore doth my soul keep them, as a treasure of inestimable value, which I cannot be without.” We do not keep them to any purpose unless our souls keep them. There they must be deposited, as the tables of testimony in the ark, there they must have the innermost and uppermost place. Those that see God’s word to be admirable will prize it highly and preserve it carefully, as that which they promise themselves great things from.

Beloved it is time for you too, to begin to behold the wondrous things from the scriptures, when you do, this singular needful thing.

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

May the good Lord help you to admire God’s unfailing unchanging eternal words of God and be obedient to it in its entirety, like king David, did.

Thy testimonies [ decrees, laws. commandments, statues ] are wonderful [ wondrous and gracious ]: therefore doth my soul keep them. – Psalms 119:129

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | February 28, 2021 | LESSONS FROM PSALMS | Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right

Therefore I esteem [ regard and consider ] all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. - Psalms 119:128
Therefore I esteem [ regard and consider ] all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. - Psalms 119:128

Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way (v. 128).

Therefore I esteem [ regard, appointments and consider ] all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. – Psalms 119:128

Dearly beloved brethren, it is very easy to discover a true Bible believing believers from a person that is just professing religion.

The prophecies of the scriptures, concerning a person just professing religion is that, such people do not see reasons why they should believe the entirety of the revealed truth of the unfailing unchanging and eternal words of God, but they select the ones convenient for them.

Pause here and check up, do you delight in obeying the entirety of God’s Words in the Bible or you choose what you want to believe?

The consequence of such a decision is lost eternity, which shall not be your portion in Jesus name.

See what the Bible says about empty professors of religion.

1. They fall away from believing the totality of the scriptures.

2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2. They depart from the faith, rejecting the total truth and accepting false doctrines of the devil.

1 Timothy 4:1-2 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
Therefore I esteem [ regard, appointments and consider ] all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. – Psalms 119:128

3. They believe fables

2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

But then our Lord Jesus Christ during His earthly ministry and from glory said, such people shall be judged by the words they rejected at eternity and participated in the great tribulation.

John 12:46-48 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. 12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
Revelation 3:10-11 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
Therefore I esteem [ regard, appointments and consider ] all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. – Psalms 119:128

In addition, such empty professor of religion shall have their names and part removed from the book of life and from heaven.

Revelation 22:18-19 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

The good knowledge of all the above revealed consequences for not embracing the entirety of the scriptures, was what made king David to resolve to esteem the entirety of God’s unfailing unchanging and eternal words of God. See it yourself.

Therefore I esteem [ regard, appointments and consider ] all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. – Psalms 119:128

See this scripture in other Bible versions.

NLT
Each of your commandments is right. That is why I hate every false way.

AMP BIBLE
Therefore I esteem as right all, yes, all Your precepts; I hate every false way.

Beloved see this scripture amplified.

Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right. I do not pick and choose among thy commandments which I will neglect and which I will obey, but esteem them all as perfect, and obey them all. “

Dearly beloved brethren, because your earnest desire is to live with God for all eternity, then follow the good example of king David. This is because, the Bible says you should follow what is good.

3 John 1:11 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.

The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

Therefore I esteem [ regard, appointments and consider ] all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. – Psalms 119:128

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | February 27, 2021 | LESSONS FROM PSALMS | Therefore I love thy commandments above gold

Therefore I love thy commandments [ decrees, laws, ordinances, regulations, rules ] above gold; yea, above fine gold. - Psalms 119:127

Therefore I love thy commandments [ decrees, laws, statues, ordinances, regulations, rules ] above gold; yea, above fine gold. – Psalms 119:127

Dearly beloved brethren, the Bible reveals to you in particular, why Bible believing believers like you, should give the right place to God’s unfailing unchanging and eternal words of the living God.

See some of the things our Lord Jesus Christ said about the word of God.

1. The word should have finality over your life endeavors.

Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

2. The word provides you with godly wisdom.

Matthew 7:24 – 25 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

3. The word of God provides you with life and health.

Proverbs 4:20 – 22 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. 4:21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. 4:22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

4. When you abide by the words it will guarantee you good success.

Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

5. The word of God is a lamp that lightening your ways and guide you from falling into satanic snares.

Psalms 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Therefore I love thy commandments [ decrees, laws, statues, ordinances, regulations, rules ] above gold; yea, above fine gold. – Psalms 119:127

In addition, this word shall not pass away forever.

Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

This. Word is settled in heaven forever.

Psalms 119:89 For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.

God himself magnifies this word more than all His names.

Psalms 138:2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

It is this same word that determines your eternal well-being.

John 12:46-48 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. 12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
Therefore I love thy commandments [ decrees, laws, statues, ordinances, regulations, rules ] above gold; yea, above fine gold. – Psalms 119:127

Also it is your obedience to this same word that shall help you to avoid the fearful great tribulation that shall be fall this whole. world after the dawning rapture.

Revelation 3:10 – 11 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

No wonder, Job said, he gave prominence to the word more than necessary food.

Job 23:12. Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips;I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.

Beloved it was the understanding of all of these that made king David to love the word more than gold. See it yourself.

Therefore I love thy commandments [ decrees, laws, statues, ordinances, regulations, rules ] above gold; yea, above fine gold. – Psalms 119:127

See how this same word is revealed in other Bible versions.

NLT
Psalms 119:127 Truly, I love your commands more than gold, even the finest gold.

AMP BIBLE
Psalm 119:127 Therefore I love Your commandments more than [resplendent] gold, yes, more than [perfectly] refined gold.

See how this same scripture is amplified.

David here, as often in this psalm, professes the great love he had to the word and law of God and, to evidence the sincerity of it, observe, 1. The degree of his love. He loved his Bible better than he loved his money–above gold, yea, above fine gold. Gold, fine gold, is what most men set their hearts upon nothing charms them and dazzles their eyes so much as gold does. It is fine gold, a fine thing in their eyes they will venture their souls, their God, their all, to get and keep it. But David saw that the word of God answers all purposes better than money does, for it enriches the soul towards God and therefore he loved it better than gold, for it had done that for him which gold could not do, and would stand him in stead when the wealth of the world would fail him

What will you as a Bible believing believer do with this great revelation in light of eternity?

See what your resolution should be till Jesus comes.

Job 34:32. That which I see not teach thou me:if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.
Therefore I love thy commandments [ decrees, laws, statues, ordinances, regulations, rules ] above gold; yea, above fine gold. – Psalms 119:127

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | February 26, 2021 | LESSONS FROM PSALMS | It is time for thee LORD to work

It is time for thee, LORD [ Jehovah ], to work: for they have made void [ for they break ] thy law [ commandment ]. - Psalms 119:126
It is time for thee, LORD [ Jehovah ], to work: for they have made void [ for they break ] thy law [ commandment ]. - Psalms 119:126

It is time for thee, LORD [ Jehovah ], to work: for they have made void [ for they break ] thy law [ commandment ]. – Psalms 119:126

It is time for thee, LORD [ Jehovah ], to work: for they have made void [ for they break ] thy law [ instruction and commandment ]. – Psalms 119:126

Dearly beloved brethren, the subject before you this moment is. the crux of the matter in Christendom. You really need to examine yourself.

Are you really Christlike ? I am strongly persuaded you are. But check up.

Do you have the most important attribute of our loving Father in heaven and Christ our Master and Lord? Do you know this attribute? See it yourself.

Hab 1:13 Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil,and canst not look on iniquity:wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously,and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?
Hebrews 1:8-9 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
It is time for thee, LORD [ Jehovah ], to work: for they have made void [ for they break ] thy law [ instruction and commandment ]. – Psalms 119:126

Our Master and Lord and our loving Father in heaven hated sin and are intolerant to sin.

It is true that they love sinners to be saved, but they hated sin with passion.

See this admonition from the blessed Holy Spirit.

Eph 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.

What this means is that you should not give place to sin or you shall be found guilty of supporting or harbouring sinners.

Romans 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Beloved, Jesus our Lord , from glory frowned at churches or leaders of churches, where sin is tolerated. See it yourself.

Church 1.

Revelation 2:1-2 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; 2:2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
Revelation 2:6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.

Church 2.

Revelation 2:12 -15 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; 2:13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth. 2:14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. 2:15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.
It is time for thee, LORD [ Jehovah ], to work: for they have made void [ for they break ] thy law [ instruction and commandment ]. – Psalms 119:126

Church 3

Revelation 2:18-23 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; 2:19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. 2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. 2:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. 2:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. 2:23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

It was because, king David shared the same attribute with our Father in heaven and our Lord Jesus Christ, that was why, he was earnestly interceding for God to intervene and bring an end to sin. See it yourself.

It is time for thee, LORD [ Jehovah ], to work: for they have made void [ for they break ] thy law [ instruction and commandment ]. – Psalms 119:126

See this scripture in other Bible versions.

NLT
Psalms 119:126 lord, it is time for you to act, for these evil people have violated your instructions.

AMP BIBLE.
Psalm 119:126 It is time for the Lord to act; they have frustrated Your law.

Beloved, see how the Bible affirms the hatred of king David on those who flagrantly despise and disregard God’s unfailing unchanging and eternal words of God.

Psalms 139:21-22. Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? 139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.

You shall not be godly or Chridtlike, if you are tolerating and giving place to sin.

You should not be, but if you are repent, to avoid judgements.

Job 34:32 That which I see not teach thou me:if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.

The good Lord shall help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.

It is time for thee, LORD [ Jehovah ], to work: for they have made void [ for they break ] thy law [ instruction and commandment ]. – Psalms 119:126

See you at the top in Jesus name

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | February 25, 2021 | LESSONS FROM PSALMS | I am thy servant; give me understanding

I am thy servant; give me understanding [ [the ability to learn and a teachable heart] ], that I may know thy testimonies. - Psalms 119:125
I am thy servant; give me understanding [ [the ability to learn and a teachable heart] ], that I may know thy testimonies. - Psalms 119:125

I am thy servant; give me understanding [ [the ability to learn and a teachable heart] ], that I may know thy testimonies. – Psalms 119:125

Dearly beloved brethren, their is a price to pay to attain and acquire spiritual gifts.

They don’t just fall upon anyone like cherry mangoes.

Nobody can understand the word of God, without the Lord Himself, opening the understanding of such person.

Luke 24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
2 Timothy 2:7 Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.

Our Lord has promised to endow faithful Bible believing believer, unusual understanding and wisdom.

I am thy servant; give me understanding [ [the ability to learn and a teachable heart] ], that I may know thy testimonies. – Psalms 119:125

Yet you need to prayerfully desired them. See some of His promises.

Luke 21:15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

But then it would take earnest payers on your part, before these spiritual gifts are giving. See what you must do to receive them.

Proverbs 2:3-6 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; 2:4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; 2:5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. 2:6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
Hosea 6:3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
I am thy servant; give me understanding [ [the ability to learn and a teachable heart] ], that I may know thy testimonies. – Psalms 119:125

Saints of old had unusual wisdom and understanding, given to them by God.

Joseph and Daniel were endowed with unusual wisdom.

Acts 7:10 And delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he made him governor over Egypt and all his house.
Genesis 41:38-39 And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is? 41:39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:
Daniel 2:23 I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king’s matter.
Daniel 6:3 Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.

This unusual wisdom and understanding that God alone can give was the earnest prayer of king David to God. See it yourself.

I am thy servant; give me understanding [ [the ability to learn and a teachable heart] ], that I may know thy testimonies. – Psalms 119:125

See the same passage in other Bible version’s.

NLT
Psalms 119:125 Give discernment to me, your servant; then I will understand your laws.

AMP BIBLE
Psalm 119:125 I am Your servant; give me understanding (discernment and comprehension), that I may know (discern and be familiar with the character of) Your testimonies.

Beloved see the same passage amplified.

Give me understanding (a renewed understanding, apt to receive divine light), that I may know thy testimonies. It is God’s prerogative to give an understanding, that understanding without which we cannot know God’s testimonies. Those who know most of God’s testimonies desire to know more, and are still earnest with God to teach them, never thinking they know enough.

See other Bible passages affirming the earnest desire of king David for more wisdom and understanding from God.

Psalms 119:73 Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.
Psalms 119:144 The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.
I am thy servant; give me understanding [ [the ability to learn and a teachable heart] ], that I may know thy testimonies. – Psalms 119:125

These gifts are available today for all Bible believing believers, like you.

1 Corinthians 12:8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

But then only those who earnestly pray for them are given by God.

1 Corinthians 12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
Ephesians 1:15-18 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, 1:16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 1:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

Beloved, do you have passion for God’s spiritual gifts? Then pray and you shall receive, like king David received in Jesus name

James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
I am thy servant; give me understanding [ [the ability to learn and a teachable heart] ], that I may know thy testimonies. – Psalms 119:125
