Psalm 119 is noted for its call to delight in the word of God. But we must not fail to realize that this great psalm is also infused with great lament. In The Path of Life, J. Stephen Yuille follows the psalmist through his many ups and downs in order to see how he gives voice to the song in our soul. Here is comfort for bearing sorrow, strength for enduring difficulty, trust for facing uncertainty, and peace for overcoming anxiety. Even in his extremity, the psalmist finds joy in the blessed God. This is how Jesus persevered through trials and endured the cross. And in Christ, you too can take up this psalm, follow the path of life, and find blessedness in your seasons of lament.
“Stephen Yuille highlights lament as a distinct and crucial feature of the Psalter. Indeed, God gave His people the Psalms as powerful expressions of the very real suffering and trials His people face. The psalms of lamentation, as Yuille reminds us, give Christians a much-needed theology of suffering through which to see our sovereign God working all things, even our suffering, toward our good and for His glory.”
—R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
