Psalm 5 - Who Can Stand before God?

Psalm 5 - Who Can Stand before God?

Wisdom is the skill of living life God's way. Psalm 5 is a morning prayer. Believers assurance is based on his standing in Grace (Psa 5:1-3, Rom 5:1-2, 1Pe 3:10-12). Positional truth plus practical obedience is the key to powerful prayer. The one who reject Christs enters into unreserved judgment (Psa 5:4-6, Psa 15:1-5, Joh 3:18-19, Joh 3:36). The believer's thanksgiving is best expressed by living god's way -- accepting His guidance (Psa 5:7-8, Rom 12:1-2, Heb 4:16). Those in the habit of being led by God are mature sons (Rom 8:14). Imprecatory prayer takes unbelievers' rejection of God into account. David asks that God's judgment be levied (Psa 5:9-10). "Let judgment fall on unbelievers" (Rev 6:9-11). Our standing in Grace through faith is our basis for a perpetual fountain of joy (Psa 5:11-12). "Casah" pictures fleeing into the rocks for refuge (Heb 6:18-19). Refuge alludes to cities of refuge. Cities of refuge and meaning illustrates spiritual growth: (1) Cadesh - "holiness"; (2) Shekum - "power"; (3) Hebron - "united"; (4) Bezer - "fortified"; (5) Ramah - "exalted"; (6) Golan - "exile" or "stranger". The ground at the foot of the cross is level; our standing in Grace gives us equal access; our standing allows us all to approach God's throne with powerful prayer that'll impact the world.
