Discussion for Psalms 119:51

  • Knowing God and his word will determine whether we react or respond in an adverse situation. Reaction is usually out of control. David knew the art of waiting on the Lord and then responded accordingly. He was not ignorant of the injustices of others, however he wasn 't about to abandon the only solid foundation he knew, the word of God.
