Trouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands are my delight. Psalm 119:14
This verse is hard for me, because I know I am so blessed. Trouble and distress do not seem to be a part of my vocabulary right now. But I know in many places in the world this statement is true of Christians who are under attack and live under the threat of persecution and possibly even death. But their love for God and their commitment to obedience is greater than Satan’s threats because God’s will is their delight.
