2 I was dumb ['alam] with silence [duwmiyah], I held my peace [chashah], even from good [towb]; and my sorrow [ka'eb] was stirred [`akar]. KJV-Interlinear
2 I was mute and silent; I held my peace to no avail, and my distress grew worse. ESV
David describes that his attempts to suppress his thoughts, or suppress his comments, resulted in even greater agitation and anguish within his own mind.
But the attempt to suppress, was in vain.
His inner distress, continued to grow worse and worse.
The suppression of negative thoughts or of complaining, gave him no avenue for venting, which venting was intended for other people, but would result in injury to them, perhaps even by perpetuating doubts and anger in others.
Ultimately, we will all have doubts. Ultimately we will all have angers within us.
And venting these feelings to others, is not the way to release our inner pressure.
But venting to God, is allowable, and is the preferred method of releasing inner frustrations and hostilities.
You can’t confuse God, and you cannot hurt God.
But often times, by venting toward God, you can work your way through the content of your frustration and anger, and when combined with a daily study and learning, you will be able to sort out and discover the answers that you need.
Often times, complaints lead to more complaints, lead to more questions. But complaining to God, even chewing Him out from time to time, gives you a place to take your frustration, and a way to sort out what is really on your mind.
It’s These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever. To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
