(Full) Psalm 5 KJV - Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation

Apostle Quinson Thomas Apostle Quinson Thomas

1 Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation.

Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.

The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the Lord will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

More Psl. 5 (Old Testament)

Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.

For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.

10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.

More Psl. 5 (Old Testament)

11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

12 For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

Devotional - The Secret To Hearing God and Living A Righteous Life

O, How I long for God's presence. I don't know about you, but there's nothing like the presence of the Lord.

The Bible says that in the presence of the Lord there is fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore.

This psalm illustrates to us the importance of seeking the presence of God to live the life of a righteous man or person in prayer, because it is in prayer that we commune with God.

The scripture in John 10:27 talks about hearing the voice of God. This psalm talks about the voice of God that you hear in the morning.

It's In The Stillness That You Hear God

When you wake up in the morning, there is clarity.

Scriptures also talk about us being still and knowing that He is God.

And so the psalm illustrates to us that it's in the stillness or in the clarity of mind, that we hear the voice of God and so this is a major key here! The voice of God according to John chapter 10:27 is in that stillness.

Psalm 5 also talks about our humility, for indeed James4:6 says that he gives grace unto the humble.

Humility Will Cause You To Live Like A Righteous Man or Woman For The Lord

And so as we look at our relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, we have to ponder on the fact that this psl. is sharing with us how to enter the presence of God and that communion with God that The Lord Jesus says that we should have in John 15.

It is our prayer, that in the stillness you will hear the voice of our prayer-hearing God; that God will speak to you and show you things to come, and that He will reveal Himself to you by the Holy Spirit in new and awesome ways.

Don't be like a wicked person, but like the righteous man, who lives by faith that comes from hearing God (Romans 10:17)

May He be glorified in your life by the power of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
