The God who sees ME

The God who sees ME

El Roi is my favorite name of God because it means the God who sees. He sees me. He wants to have a relationship with me and wants to know every detail of me life even though He is KING of the Universe. He is so good to me. He is my Lord and Savior. Nothing shall separate me from His love. He is All that I need and MORE!

Meditations of Psalm 119:1-8

Sept. 11-21 I went to my second Journey to the Heart. My loving teammate "Teddy" (aka, Hannah) got a group together to memorize Psalm 119. Thank you Hannah for motivating us to hide Gods word in our heart! Today as I was memorizing these beautiful verses, I thought I would go ahead and post about it. The first section is Matthew Henry's Commentary on the first eight verses.

This psalm may be considered as the statement of a believer's experience. As far as our views, desires, and affections agree with what is here expressed, they come from the influences of the Holy Spirit, and no further. The pardoning mercy of God in Christ, is the only source of a sinner's happiness. And those are most happy, who are preserved most free from the defilement of sin, who simply believe God's testimonies, and depend on his promises. If the heart be divided between him and the world, it is evil. But the saints carefully avoid all sin; they are conscious of much evil that clogs them in the ways of God, but not of that wickedness which draws them out of those ways. The tempter would make men think they are at them out of those ways. The tempter would make men think they are at liberty to follow the word of God or not, as they please. But the desire and prayer of a good man agree with the will and command of God. If a man expects by obedience in one thing to purchase indulgence for disobedience in others, his hypocrisy will be detected; if he is not ashamed in this world, everlasting shame will be his portion. The psalmist coveted to learn the lawsof God, to give God the glory. And believers see that if God forsakes them, the temper will be too hard for them.

1Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.

Blessed: Happy, prosperity or happiness that comes when God bestows his favor on one. Fully satisfied, joy from salvation.

Undefiled: Not defiled (defiled: sully, mar, or spoil), pure.

blue = our responsibility

2Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.

3They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.

Not doing iniquity is a conscious decision. The people who keep his testimonies and seek him with the whole heart, they do no iniquity.

Iniquity: immoral or grossly unfair behavior.

4Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.

Diligently: having or showing care conscientious (wishing to do right, esp. to do one's work or duty well and thoroughly) in one's work or duty.

5O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!

My prayer for today!

6Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.

Respect: admire someone or something deeply, as a result of their abilities.

7I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.

8I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
