Psalm 119.92

Correct priorities

"Had your teaching not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction" [Psalm 119.92 NASB]

As we continue to read the Psalms, it does not take us very long to discover that David always said and put into writing what he was feeling or experiencing.

Now, in my case, I do not find it too easy to share with everyone how I am. I often wonder what then, is the major difference between David and myself?

David had learned through many unacceptable and varied experiences to trust God only. David did not disclose to man first and foremost what was happening in his life. God was his counsellor, comforter, and confidant. Together, they had a permanent and a meaningful relationship.

When chaos and disorder seem to collide, why do we sometimes run to man for his wisdom, counsel or advice? Is it not all a question of trust? How did David learn to trust in God at all times? He was repeatedly placed in situations where the best that man could do was ineffective; therefore he had to fully rely on the Lord.

Is a similar thing happening in your life? Are you being weaned off of the well-trodden path of the natural man and onto the way of the Spirit who through many hazardous situations safely brought all of the people into the Promised Land?

At a time of questionable and immature leadership, which had a devastating effect upon the nation of Israel, Isaiah alone called out, "Stop putting your trust in mere humans How can they be of help to anyone?" [Isaiah 3.22 NLT].

Maybe it is time to turn away from being affected too much by what other people are saying and doing concerning you and allow God to be your only covering, teacher, provider and companion. [David McArdle]

Great reminder of where our trust should be. This is a big struggle for me - I almost always turn to others before God. I needed to read this today.
