Blessed is the Word, ט

We can’t control others. Read Psalm 119:65-72.

Do good to your servant according to your word, Lord . Teach me knowledge and good judgment, for I trust your commands. Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I obey your word. You are good, and what you do is good; teach me your decrees. Though the arrogant have smeared me with lies, I keep your precepts with all my heart. Their hearts are callous and unfeeling, but I delight in your law. It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees. The law from your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.
Psalms 119:65‭-‬72 NIV

So much great truth here. I am encouraged by verse 69 that reminds us that while we can’t control others, we can control ourselves. There may be times when other people say terrible things to us or about us. We can always trust in God and know that he is faithful even when we struggle. He is faithful even when others act wrongly. Will we trust in him?
