Do You Need Joy

You know how I am scorned, disgraced, and shamed; all my enemies are before you. Psalm 69:19


David felt disgraced and shamed by his enemies, but he also recognized that the Lord knew too. So, likewise, the Psalmist knew God was aware of His situation and the enemy's attacks upon his heart. The calming David must have experienced realizing God knows his condition. But David knew God doesn't always intervene, but God knows.


Is it enough to know God is vividly aware of all our situations? It may bring despair into our lives to know God knows and yet doesn't change our problems. The place of trials could be the place of the most excellent awareness of God. God may allow the shame to bring us to him. He may let the disgrace to humble us.


Life lessons are learned by persevering through them. So James says," Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. So James 1:2-4 These are a couple of sentences that may bring a sigh, but when we allow the work of the trial to do its job, the sigh turns to joy.
