Let a righteous man strike me

Message

Ps 141 Lord I cry out to You; make haste to me.  Do not incline my heart to any evil thing.  Let the righteous strike me, let my head not refuse it.  My eyes are upon You, O God, in You I take refuge.  Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I escape safely.

Promise:

·         The Lord hears those who call upon Him. 

Command: 

  • ·         Call upon the Lord vs 1 “o Lord I call to You; come quickly to me….”
  • ·         Keep away from evil vs 4 “Let not my heart be drawn to what is evil.”
  • ·         Remain humble vs 5 “Let a righteous man strike me…”
  • ·         Fix our eyes on the Lord vs 8 “but my eyes are fixed on You, o Sovereign Lord, in You I take refuge…”

Warning

The wicked will fall into the sins they commit.
