Psalm 119:169-176 What lesson can we learn ?
The psalmist ended this psalm with these words: verse 176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek Your servant. For I do not forget Your commandments.
Despite the dedication of the psalmist he still went astray. That tells us we can not rely on our own righteousness, we are dependent on God for everything.
This psalm was written in the Old Testament times and the answer to this psalm is found in Jesus Christ. He came to seek and save the lost.
Our Lord Jesus says in Luke 24:44.....All things must be fulfilled,which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning Me.
Luke 24:45 Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures.
(Do you remember the psalmist often plea to give him understanding ?)
