“When I think of your rules from of old, I take comfort, O Lord.”
We can take great comfort in God’s eternal nature. We don’t have to worry about whether or not things are going to work out. They are working out perfectly, according to His plan.
We can also take great comfort in His rules. He is the sovereign judge, and while some things in this life seem to be unfair, He is also a perfect judge. We often don’t think of Him that way, because we place ourselves in the role of judge. However, we are not God, and we cannot take over that role because we aren’t in charge. While we can’t understand why He allows some of the things He allows, we can trust that in a fallen world there will be trouble and pain and death. We’ll experience all of those things, but if we’re in Christ, it will only be for a short time.
