The Psalmist’s Theology of Suffering

I find these verses from Psalm 119 some of the most helpful in the Bible for grasping a right perspective of suffering and what we should remember as we’re walking through trials:

Psalm 119:67 – Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep your word.

v. 71 – It is good for me that I was afflicted,
that I might learn your statutes.

v. 75 – I know, O Lord, that your rules are righteous,
and that in faithfulness you have afflicted me.

v. 92 – If your law had not been my delight,
I would have perished in my affliction.
