6 Blessed [barak] be the LORD [Yahovah], because he hath heard [shama`] the voice [qowl] of my
supplications [tachanuwn]. KJV-Interlinear
be the Lord, Because He has heard the voice of my supplication. NASB
As we have already seen in this psalm, when you know the works and design and dealings of God and how He operates, then the result is confidence and assurance in how He will deal with you and with life in general.
But more particularly, that no matter what happens in life, there is always a reason which may be obvious but more often may not be obvious, as God places many and various obstacles before us in order to see how we will deal with them.
This tests the very metal of our inner spiritual strength.
If you are spiritually sound, then you will take life's stumbles, no matter what they are, in stride and keep moving forward.
If you are spiritually weak, then you will have many roller-coaster emotional rides through life.
Looking to oneself, sets you up for disappointment after disappointment, because life does not ever go as planned.
Someone once said, that if you want to make God smile, then tell Him ‘your’ plans.
This is the devils world and life will never be prefect in this world. If you expect that life owes you something or anything, then you are sadly mistaken, because life will squeeze you and squeeze you until you are in tears or worse. The world is happy when you are unhappy and defeated.
As the previous verse stated, when you do not know Gods works, when you do not know Gods design, when you do not know how God operates, then you are in a sad state. And when you remain indifferent or defiant toward Gods methods and expectations and mandates, then you are setting yourself up for disaster and extreme sorrow. And, you are doing all of it to yourself.
The things of this world are unimportant. Your knowledge of God is very important. For by that knowledge you gain wisdom and strength and power from within yourself, never dependent on any external thing or event or situation.
And then we arrive at this verse.
When we are knowledgeable, and that means legitimately knowledgeable, then God take notice of us and folds us into His plan as we should be.
That is Gods work, Gods plan, and our benefit.
Our supplications, entreaties, appeals, petitions, etc., are received and heard and dealt with appropriately, and in a manner that is consistent with what God believes is best for us.
