Life is?? #231 The tongue is?

** When people are truly under God’s conviction, they recognize their relative unworthiness. Those who have never come to the end of themselves have never found the beginning of God. **

Psalms 39

** Note on Psalm 39 not all verses are addressed for more see

Psalms 39:1
Note on Psalms 39:1
As James explained in
James 3:8, we cannot tame our tongues on our own. We have to have the power of the Holy Spirit to bridle our tongues. This is what David was describing here.
He willed not to sin with his mouth. Psalms 39:2-3 describes the sorrow this caused.
Then, in Psalms 39:4 he called out to the Lord to show him his frailty. He wasn’t able to do it on his own. Neither are we.

Psalms 39:2
Note on Psalms 39:2
It is true that we often get hung by our own tongues, but the solution isn’t to just quit speaking. That’s what David was describing here. His sorrow became even worse when he didn’t vocalize it.
We shouldn’t just vent our hurts and sorrows to people or into the air, but we shouldn’t keep them in either. We should cast all our care upon the Lord, knowing that He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7 and
Philippians 4:6).

Psalms 39:3
Note on Psalms 39:3
Notice that “musing” (which is simply meditating or thinking) about the problem enflamed David’s offense. It does the same thing for us; whatever we focus our attention on increases, and whatever we neglect decreases. Therefore, don’t inflame offenses by thinking about them. Cast the hurt and care about the situations on the Lord
(1 Peter 5:7).

Psalms 39:4
Note on Psalms 39:4
In Psalms 39:1, David determined that he would control his tongue, but in Psalms 39:2-3, he failed miserably. Here he was confessing his failure to the Lord and asking to be shown how dependent on the Lord he should be. Many people take great offense anytime anyone points out any weakness in them. However, there is great strength in recognizing weaknesses if it drives people to depending on the Lord
(2 Corinthians 12:9-10).

Psalms 39:5
Note on Psalms 39:5
The wicked think they will live forever (Psalms 49:11), but the godly recognize their natural limitations, as David did in this psalm. However, even though it’s important to realize that we can do nothing without the Lord (John 15:5), it’s also important to recognize that we are never without the Lord
(Hebrews 13:5) and that we can do all things THROUGH Christ who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13).

Psalms 39:6
Note on Psalms 39:6
This is describing sinful, fallen man. Even we as believers have natural bodies that have been greatly diminished because of sin.
We should have no confidence in our flesh (Philippians 3:3). Through Christ, we have become new creatures
(2 Corinthians 5:17) that are now invested with all the power and authority of God (Matthew 10:1-10, 28:18-20; and Colossians 2:9-10). These are two polar opposite truths that have to exist in balance.

Psalms 39:7
Note on Psalms 39:7
David had just been confessing his total failure in Psalms 39:1-6. This brought him to total dependency on God. Truly, people will never depend totally on God until they have lost all dependency upon themselves.

Psalms 39:8
Note on Psalms 39:8
Praise God! This has already happened for the New Testament believer (Hebrews 9:12-15).

Psalms 39:11
Note on Psalms 39:11
When people are truly under God’s conviction, they recognize their relative unworthiness. Those who have never come to the end of themselves have never found the beginning of God. Selah (pause, and calmly think of that -
see my note at Psalms 3:2).

Psalms 39:12
Note on Psalms 39:12
David was pleading for a speedy deliverance on the basis of the shortness of life.

Psalms 39:13
Note on Psalms 39:13
David was speaking of being no more in the physical sense only. Even Job knew there would be a resurrection
(Job 19:25-26). Paul revealed that when we die, we go directly into the presence of God (2 Corinthians 5:1-8 and Philippians 1:23). His body has perished, but his spirit and soul still live and will one day be reunited with his resurrected body (Acts 24:15; Romans 8:11, 23;
1 Corinthians 6:14, 15:42-55; and
Revelation 20:12-13).
