Psalm 103 and the Commandments
“But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children, for those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments. The LORD has established His throne in the heavens, and His kingdom rules over all.” – Psalm 103: 17-19
We learn in the Psalms that David experienced difficulties along with successes. We are able to see everything that he was able to experience in the first person with the writings of the Psalms. We know that the faith of David is counted as something that is extraordinary and that astounds. We are to see the examples of David’s faith and learn to live in a similar manner that removes doubt and keeps us in the faith that trusts the promises of GOD.
We know that David was a man of faith who followed the commandments and had faith through everything he went through. For this he was defended and protected and delivered from his enemies. We learn that those that follow the commandments have protection by GOD and are fortified in their faith of GOD’s steadfast love and grace. GOD is able to hear the prayers of His believers and attend to their struggles.
We know that GOD, the Almighty, is ruling from Heaven and watches for what happens on earth. We know that the GOD of Creation who created the Heaven and the earth and everything that is seen decides what happens in the world. We know that He instructs believers to follow the commandments and have faith in Jesus Christ, His Son who died on the cross and was resurrected on the third day by GOD to give us eternal salvation and eternal life if we believe and have faith and repent of our sins.
We are told in the Psalms that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom and those who practice it have a good understanding. We learn that David had a fear of the LORD because he followed the commandments and prayed and sang to GOD showing his dedication to GOD. We can learn to follow the Psalm that David wrote concerning our ability to worship, fear, and have faith in a GOD that has already written history and has spoken to the prophets and given salvation through Jesus Christ.
