119:28-29 The soul weighed down with sorrow seeks strength from God's word. See “Can God Meet Emotional Needs” for how this works if you don't regularly experience it. Hint, it's frequently a matter of having God's perspective and grace rather than having our vision clouded by Satan's deception.
119:30-32 The psalmist chooses to follow God's way, and sets His ordinances in front of himself. He clings to the promises offered in God's word with the faith that God will fulfill them and he won't be disappointed. Then after all of the above, he is able to run, not walk in the paths of God's word, for He has set his heart free from the problems that weighed him down.
Application: Get God's perspective on problems to get freedom from sorrow.
Prayer: God, help me see the events of my life from the perspective of Your word and purposes; set me free from anything that will hinder my obedience to You. Thanks. Amen.
