Psalm 18:46 Amplified Bible
Sunday, August 21, 2011
The Lord lives! Blessed be my Rock and let the God of my salvation be exalted. This is one of my most favorite verses. The capital R in Rock stands for Jesus. That is one of His many titles in the Bible. This is a good psalm to read when you are feeling down, when you are feeling sorry for yourself or when you're feeling persecuted for your faith. It's a great pick-me-up as are many of the psalms. If you are feeling depressed start reading the psalms every day. There are 150 of them. You can read 5 a day and get through them in a month. Psalm 119 is a really long psalm you could save that one for months when there is a 31st day. Back to Psalm 18. Another thing about Psalm 18 is that it is almost exactly the same a chapter 22 in the Second book of Samuel, Old Testament. Deuteronomy 19:15 in the New Living Bible says, "....The facts of the case must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses." and in John 8:17 in the KIng James version Jesus says, "It is also written in your law that the testimony of two men is true." It's like the Bible itself is saying this is true it's in here twice. There are many other instances of this in there too. Like this one: Acts 2:21 ... And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.... also in Joel 2:32. Also check out Isaiah 12:2, Exodus 15:2 and Psalm 118:14. Those three are very similar. All this to say, you can trust the Bible. It is God's word. It is theeeee truth. P.S. I got all my Bible references from Bible Gateway.com.
