Psalm 119:143 (NKJV) Trouble and anguish have overtaken me, Yet Your commandments are my delights.
How easy it is to grumble and complain. I have noticed in myself and others whenever we enter into casual conversation the first place we seem to go is into a litany of complaints, whether of illnesses or inconveniences, or perceived injustices. Let’s face it. We are born into a world of trouble and hurt. We spend a lot of time and effort trying to forestall all of that for ourselves and those we love, but seldom do we look to he Word of God to hear what he has commanded regarding many of the ills and misfortunes we experience. For most, we rarely if ever look beyond the “Thou shalt, and Thou shalt nots” to try to understand the heart that is behind what is said and comprehend the potential consequences of disobedience.
King David at his best was devoted to God and truly did love and delight in the commands found in the scriptures. Even though he had his moments and was the victim of his own impulsiveness and the jealousies of others he always seemed to find his comfort and hope in God.
