Psalm 40 “I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.(v8)” “For innumerable evils have compassed me about: (v12a)”

How is it that we can try so hard and still find ourselves surrounded by trouble?  I believe the answer is found in the first 4 verses of this Psalm.  We were in a bad place to begin with, so it is our nature that we should have difficulty. Secondly, God desires that we should trust in Him fully, set aside our pride, and call to Him for help. Lastly, but most importantly, He desires our praise. This praise will bring others to Him. Have a great day! -PB
