10 Many [rab] sorrows [mak'ob] shall be to the wicked [rasha`]: but he that trusteth [batach] in the LORD [Yahovah],
mercy [checed] shall compass [cabab] him about. KJV-Interlinear
10 Many are
the sorrows of the wicked; But he who trusts in the Lord, lovingkindness shall
surround him. NASB
The single biggest contrast in all of creation, is between Gods grace and mans sorrow. In your life you will be surrounded by one or the other, and your choice to pursue, or not pursue, your daily bible study will decide.
Trust, ‘batach,’ means a refuge wherein you place yourself within the environment designed by God, in order to be secure, to be safe, to be protected, to be prospered, to have a happy life with confidence and divine security, and far more.
Within Gods design you are surrounded, and not just on four sides but all around as though you were within a protective sphere.
Outside of Gods design, you are in sorrow. There you have no hope, no future, no blessing per se.
Outside of Gods design is the residence of the wicked. And wickedness is not restricted to ugly ghouls, but is the place of indifference and apathy and resistance and rejection of Gods truth.
Someday you will stand before Christ and He might well ask you to tell your story. Will you say, ‘Well, I said amen a lot!’
Do you think that will impress Him?
Christ expects you to learn and know and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can reside in, and benefit from, His grace.
But of course, you can choose to reside in sorrow, which won’t earn you any points in life.
