NO SHORT CUTS

 

(Lam 3:39 KJV)  Wherefore doth a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins?
 
(Rom 12:1 KJV)  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
 
Too many persons are now still looking for the simple,  easy way out, an instant, a short cut even  to an easy, successful  super, spirituality , holy Christian living and it basically does not exist because God firstly still does want all of you, he does want  the full, continuous complete control of all your life, everything you do , think, endeavor.
 
(1 Cor 6:19 KJV)  What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
 
(1 Cor 6:20 KJV)  For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
 
(Gal 2:20 KJV)  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
 

Even when I am old

 
 
Psa 71:1  In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
Psa 71:2  Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me.
Psa 71:3  Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.
Psa 71:4  Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
Psa 71:5  For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth.
Psa 71:6  By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother’s bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee.
Psa 71:7  I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.
Psa 71:8  Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.
Psa 71:9  Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.
Psa 71:10  For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
Psa 71:11  Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.
Psa 71:12  O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
Psa 71:13  Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.
Psa 71:14  But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
Psa 71:15  My mouth shall show forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
Psa 71:16  I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
Psa 71:17  O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.
Psa 71:18  Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.
Psa 71:19  Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee!
Psa 71:20  Thou, which hast showed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
Psa 71:21  Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.
Psa 71:22  I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel.
Psa 71:23  My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.
Psa 71:24  My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.
Psa 71:1  In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
Psa 71:2  Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me.
Psa 71:3  Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.
Psa 71:4  Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
Psa 71:5  For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth.
Psa 71:6  By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother’s bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee.
Psa 71:7  I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.
Psa 71:8  Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.
Psa 71:9  Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.
Psa 71:10  For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
Psa 71:11  Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.
Psa 71:12  O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
Psa 71:13  Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.
Psa 71:14  But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
Psa 71:15  My mouth shall show forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
Psa 71:16  I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
Psa 71:17  O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.
Psa 71:18  Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.
Psa 71:19  Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee!
Psa 71:20  Thou, which hast showed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
Psa 71:21  Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.
Psa 71:22  I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel.
Psa 71:23  My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.
Psa 71:24  My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.

Our help is in the Lord

 

Psa 72:1  Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king’s son.
Psa 72:2  He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.
Psa 72:3  The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.
Psa 72:4  He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.
Psa 72:5  They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.
Psa 72:6  He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.
Psa 72:7  In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.
Psa 72:8  He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
Psa 72:9  They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.
Psa 72:10  The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
Psa 72:11  Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.
Psa 72:12  For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.
Psa 72:13  He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.
Psa 72:14  He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.
Psa 72:15  And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.
Psa 72:16  There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.
Psa 72:17  His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.
Psa 72:18  Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.
Psa 72:19  And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.
Psa 72:20  The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
 
Psa 73:1  A Psalm of Asaph. Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.
Psa 73:2  But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
Psa 73:3  For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
Psa 73:4  For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.
Psa 73:5  They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.
Psa 73:6  Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment.
Psa 73:7  Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.
Psa 73:8  They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily.
Psa 73:9  They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.
Psa 73:10  Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.
Psa 73:11  And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?
Psa 73:12  Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.
Psa 73:13  Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.
Psa 73:14  For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.
Psa 73:15  If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children.
Psa 73:16  When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;
Psa 73:17  Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.
Psa 73:18  Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.
Psa 73:19  How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.
Psa 73:20  As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
Psa 73:21  Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.
Psa 73:22  So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.
Psa 73:23  Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.
Psa 73:24  Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
Psa 73:25  Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.
Psa 73:26  My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
Psa 73:27  For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.
Psa 73:28  But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.
