“RESH. Consider mine affliction, and deliver me: for I do not forget thy law.” (Psalms 119:153) (KJV)

Consider mine affliction, and deliver me:

[su_pullquote align=”left”] The Psalmist desires two things, and these two things blended: first, a full consideration of his sorrow; secondly, deliverance.[/su_pullquote]

The writer has a good case, though it be a grievous one, and he is ready, yea anxious, to submit it to the divine arbitration. The Psalmist desires two things, and these two things blended: first, a full consideration of his sorrow; secondly, deliverance; and, then, that this deliverance should come with a consideration of his affliction. It should be the desire of every gracious man who is in adversity that the Lord should look upon his need, and relieve it in such a way as shall be most for the divine glory, and for his own benefit.

The words, “mine affliction, “are picturesque; they seem to portion off a special spot of woe as the writer’s own inheritance: he possesses it as no one else had ever done, and he begs the Lord to have that special spot under his eye. His prayer is eminently practical, for he seeks to be delivered; that is, brought out of the trouble and preserved from sustaining any serious damage by it. For God to consider is to act in due season: men consider and do nothing; but such is never the case with our God.

For I do not forget thy law:

[su_pullquote align=”right”] If we are kept faithful to God’s law we may be sure that God will remain faithful to his promise.[/su_pullquote]

His affliction was not sufficient, with all its bitterness, to drive out of his mind the memory of God’s law; nor could it lead him to act contrary to the divine command. He forgot prosperity, but he did not forget obedience. This is a good plea when it can be honestly urged. If we are kept faithful to God’s law we may be sure that God will remain faithful to his promise. If we do not forget his law the Lord will not forget us. He will not long leave that man in trouble whose only fear in trouble is lest he should leave the way of right.
