O magnify the Lord with me, AND LET US exalt His Name together. I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. They looked unto Him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them. O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in Him. O fear the Lord, ye His saints: for there is no want to them that fear Him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing. COME, YE CHILDREN, hearken unto Me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord. Psalm 34:3-11. Many of the Psalms were written by King Solomon and this one may be his also. Or maybe this was written by King David. For this discussion, who wrote this Psalm really doesn't matter, because the writer was looking at Life THROUGH THE EYES OF WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING. Wisdom is calling all people to seek Her, to Grow in Christ, and to Grow in a serious Understanding of everyday Life fully covered by the Will, the Ways, and the Why's of why the Lord does and leads the Way He does. Yes, the Lord will gladly reveal Himself to all who are seeking Him in Spirit and in Truth, and many times this means blindly accepting the Things He says, by Faith with no Understanding. Yes, Understanding does come to many of your questions, BUT NOT TO ALL OF YOUR QUESTIONS. Those He chooses to not answer the way you want Him to answer, you'll just have to Believe He has it all worked out for your best. When Momma tells a child, "Don't play in the street", the child may not understand, but he'll obey his Momma just because he knows she knows what she's talking about and it is for his good. That's called having Faith in and Trusting someone who knows more, and better, than you. Many times something that starts by Faith, does Grow in Understanding. And you will, Be Blessed.
