Psalm 119:169-176: Holy discontentment

The Psalmists commitment to God’s Word shaped how he regarded God. It is evidenced in his prayers and worship.  (169) let my cry, (170) my supplication come before you, (171) let my lips utter praise and (172) let my tongue sing.

Matt Chandler states “Great men of God have a holy discontentment; their hearts can never get enough of God.”  This desire is evident in the Psalmists  words, (173) let your hand be ready to help me, (174) I long for deliverance, and (175) let my soul live.

(176) I go astray like a lost sheep.  David, a shepherd, knew what it was like to seek out lost sheep prone to wander off.  Jesus fulfilled David’s prayer as Luke 19:10 tells us He came to seek and to save the lost.
