Stronger Through Trials

You are good to Your servant,
O Lord, just as You promised.
Teach me proper discernment and understanding!
For I consider Your commands to be reliable. 

Psalm 119:65-66

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for Your goodness and keeping Your promises.  Please help me to continue to learn how to apply Your reliable rules.

Before I was afflicted I used to stray off,
but now I keep Your instructions.
You are good and You do good.
Teach me Your statutes!
Arrogant people smear my reputation with lies,
but I observe Your precepts with all my heart.
Their hearts are calloused,
but I find delight in Your law.
It was good for me to suffer,
so that I might learn Your statutes.

Psalm 119:67-71

Thank you for providing ways to help me stay close to Your law.  Please help me to remember Your goodness to me in trials.  Please give me the strength to endure the lies that some tell.  They do not care about Your ways, but I know Your ways are best.  Suffering teaches me to follow You.

The law You have revealed is more important to me
than thousands of pieces of gold and silver.

Psalm 119:72

The value of Your law is more than anything I can gain on this earth.

I pray this in Jesus’ Name.

God is so good.
