Your Instruction is my Delight

“If you instruction hadn’t been my delight, I would have died because of my suffering.” Psalm 119:92

I can’t remember having read this before, though I must have done. The Psalmist sounds so desperate. But there are times when we also are so distressed ourselves and only by listening or reading God’s word will we find comfort. Often I look to other places first for my help. I wonder how long it will take me to learn.
