Give Me Understanding

Psalm 119:140-144

(God) Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and your servant loves them. Though I am lowly and despised, I do not forget your precepts. Your righteousness is everlasting and your law is true. Trouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands give me delight. Your statutes are always righteous; give me understanding that I may live.

Give Me Understanding

The psalmest praised God’s law. He told how he found comfort, hope, and joy in them. He was thankful to God for promises kept. He then did the wisest thing of all, he prayed for understanding.
