4 I sought
[darash] the LORD [Yahovah], and he
heard [`anah] me, and delivered [natsal] me from all my fears [maguwrah]. KJV-Interlinear
4 I sought
the LORD, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. ESV
Too often people look to their own devices for the answers that they seek and for the relief that they want, but none of mans plans, none of your plans, will get you your intended result.
Live your life without God, without Christ, without doctrine, and you will end up with nothing or perhaps even worse.
Bible doctrine is your access to God through Christ. The Holy Spirit is the means. Christ is the path. Bible doctrine is the method that we have of knowing all that we need to know, to see clearly all that we need to see, and to get oriented to life.
Your soul is an empty vacuum into which will flow whatever the world offers, or whatever doctrine you pursue.
David sought the Lord. Sought, ‘darash,’ means to pursue with a passion, with genuine desire as you would pursue gold or precious treasure, or even a member of your family that is near and dear to you. What is there in your life that is important enough, to set everything aside and pursue relentlessly, without hesitation, without quitting?
That is where Bible doctrine should be in your life’s priorities.
And through doctrine in your soul, which by the way you have to learn before it gets into your soul, but through doctrine in your soul, everything in life opens up wide with clarity and purpose.
You may not be the brightest light bulb in the lamp, but God guides you to the answers you need to make, through the doctrine resident in your soul.
No doctrine? No guidance.
Make learning Bible doctrine your priority and then everything else in this life in this world, will take its natural place concerning you.
Don’t learn doctrine, don’t pursue a daily study, continue to play pretend games and fool only yourself, and you will end up with nothing.
There are always two paths before you, one leads you to success and the other leads you to failure. God does not force you to take either path, but He certainly makes recommendations and warns of repercussions. But your choices, your daily choices will reveal which path you choose for your life.
