Thoughts From Psalm 119:71

“My suffering was good for me, for it taught me to pay attention to your decrees.”
Psalm 119:71

All of us at one time or another has asked God, “Why am I going through this suffering?” “What have I done for this to he happening to me?” Look what King David, a man after God’s own heart, said. He didn’t complain about suffering, David said “My suffering was good for me!” Why? Suffering taught David to depend on and have a closer relationship God. Remember what Paul said when he was writing to the Romans, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. Folks, when we suffer we should be like David and Paul, we should be thankful and rejoice in our suffering. Do you glorify God in your sufferings by being thankful and rejoicing in your sufferings?
