Are you extreme for God?

Psalm 119.100

Are you extreme for God?

"I understand more than the aged, because I have observed Your precepts." [Psalm 119.100 NASB]

It is not too often that the word "insatiable" can honestly be applied to a modern-day believer. However, David's quest for more knowledge of God's ways, words and will, was bordering on the extreme, to say the least.

The importance of and the essential need for the believer to possess and effectively use wisdom, understanding and discernment is continually emphasised in many of these surrounding verses in Psalm 119.

David may have translated his overwhelming desire for God to his son Solomon who said, "Getting wisdom is the most important thing you can do! And whatever else you do, get good judgement." [Prov 4.7 NLT]

Very often, the most important decisions we face are not between good and evil, but they are between what is beneficial and what is excellent.

This is why we need wisdom and sound judgement. For if we are truthfully and bitterly honest with ourselves, we'd admit that more often than not in this context we make the wrong choice.

How can we reverse and amend this painful and costly procedure? When Solomon was asked to discern the difference between two women, the one who had genuine love came to the top.

Do you love God the way an eccentric art collector would desire a valuable painting, and do you like Moses have an insatiable desire for the Invisible?

If these words describe you, then your mind will be clear and your decision making accurate. [David McArdle]

Yes, I can identify with so much of what you say, having often got it wrong when I leaned on my own understanding. So often in life we are forced to realise that if we had only waited on the Lord we would have got it right in the first place. Juliette
