“give me understanding” [Psalm 119:73]
December 7, 2023
“give me understanding”. The Psalmist acknowledged that it was the Lord who made and fashioned him. His plea therefore is for the Maker’s instructions to be made known to him.
The specific understanding he requested was enlightenment regarding the Lord’s commandments. He wanted his life to be lived in accordance with these. Only in this way would he be of maximum benefit and blessing to all whom he met.
The Psalmist expected those who fear the Lord and obey Him to be glad when they see him. He is referring to what now is true Christian fellowship.
With the problems and perplexities you have to face, is not this just the prayer for you – ‘Lord, give me understanding’?
