Discussion for Psalms 119:107

  • There is much teaching today in the Christian culture that states the believer may enjoy, or even expect, a bumpless ride through life. This teaching states all we have to do is speak to the problems of life and they will simply disappear. God called David a man after my own heart, however as we follow David's life we find him in constant troubles and afflictions. This is just one verse to document that truth. I am afflicted very much. That is a truth that will follow every genuine believer in the Lord. They that live godly will suffer persecution. Philippians 1 29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on Him, but to suffer for His sake. David ends this verse asking God to quicken him. I believe he's asking God to give him strength to bear up under the circumstances he finds himself in. According to thy word, that would be all the promises found in God's word.
