Trusting God Through Discouragement (Meditation on Psalm 119:81-82)

In prolonged seasons of trial it can become easy to grow weary. In our discouragement we can begin to wonder if our prayers are being heard. We can drift into complaining and negativity that, if left unchecked, can give way to a distorted view of God. When discouragement becomes the lens through which we view our lives, we might even question if God can be trusted for His promises. It is then that we must, as the Psalmist does throughout Psalm 119, combat our feelings of hopelessness with the truth of God’s Word, particularly as it declares His trustworthiness.
