Proper Perspective in Affliction (Meditation on Psalm 119:71-72)

Affliction Is not a word that we normally think on or equate with ‘good.’ This verse is startling because the psalmist says that he was afflicted and it is good for him. The affliction here was in the past, and in this backward look the psalmist sees that it yielded something for his present, and future. ‘It is good for me’ he says. How can affliction be good? 2 Corinthians 4:16-17 says it this way, “So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison.”
