(The study with Psalm 6 is available here)
In this study, we truly learn through God’s word how He makes His strength perfect through our weakness as He orchestrates all our trials and prepares our hearts to be able to grow and learn obedience through this life.
God can show His mercy on those who know they need it, on those who are given to understand that this weak flesh is merely the means to the end that God uses to judge us and show us mercy through that judgement that will form us into a vessel of honour “meet for the master’s use”
2Ti 2:21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.
The end result of this quick work, this sudden judgement that comes upon our first man Adam, is that we become more confident in His power and ability to deliver as oppose to trusting in our fleshly judgement which cannot inherit the kingdom of God.
God’s judgement mercifully deals with the carnal spirit within us. That judgement breaks down the middle wall of partition (Eph 2:14) that separates us from a loving Father. God is judging the elect today so that we can become a healthy spiritual family who are blessed to have each other to lean on, to grow and mature, and to overcome together.
Eph 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
The last verse of the study captures this most important point of how the enemies within us must be judged if we are ever to go unto maturity: “Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly”.
We eventually welcome that judgement through God’s spirit being within us as He brings us to see that He makes His strength perfect through our weakness (2Cor 12:9) “Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.”
2Co 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
