  • Mike D on Psalms 119:71
    This is almost a repeat of verse 67. Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I have kept thy word. David knew there was value in afflictions. Hebrews states 12:11 now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: but afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. Every mature Christian can attest to that fact that trials, wearisome as they are, bring them closer to the Lord than they were before the test or chastening. They are distasteful but beneficial in the maturing process. David looked at these as just that, beneficial, and counted as good.
