“Unless Your law had been my delight, I would then have perished in my affliction.” –Ps. 119:92
The true love and delight in the law of God is revealed through affliction. It is when we have been tested by the refining fires that we can say with confidence, “Oh, how I love Your law!”. It is through those times of suffering where we discover the comfort of God’s Word and the truthfulness that its promises contain.
“Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day! You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies… I have more understanding than all my teachers, For Your testimonies are my meditation.” Ps. 119:97, 98a, 99
