Verse of the Day, February 4, 2020
Psalm 119:143 KJV “Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet thy commandments are my delights.”
How important was it to the LORD for the LORD to come down to the earth; to come in full power and might; personally and physically reintroduce Himself to His creation via the children of Israel?
It had to be important, it had to be vital, for the Sovereign LORD of the Heaven and Earth to come down on the mount and give a vital covenant. The Covenant was the Ten Commandments among others.
In this Psalm, Jesus Christ is singing to the Father. Anguish and troubles took ahold of Him, especially in Gethsemane and on the cross; still, the Father’s commandments were His delights. Let it be our delight also!
