Discussion for Psalms 119:75

  • God 's ways are higher that man 's ways. The moment we believe we deserve anything than eternal separation from God, our thinking is distorted. After being told by his wife to curse God and die, Job said, Job 2:10, "Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil. " Abraham had it right when he spoke these words in Gen. 18:25B Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right? God can do only perfectly right. It is impossible for Him to do other than that. Our problem is when pain or lose is attached with life, we think maybe there is a problem with God. When we have gone through the trial or the discipline, we come out with the correct understanding, and that is God is good in all that He does. David understood that as we see in this verse.
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 75
    Thank the Lord for His judgments, and for His faithfulness in our affliction. The Psalmist said before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep thy law. God always has a purpose for allowing trials and tribulations into our lives. He always wants us to become better Christians, and not bitter. That is why James said count it all joy when you fall into diverse trials, and temptations, knowing that the trying of our faith produces patience. So rejoice in the Lord always.
