“Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept Thy Word” (Psalm 119:67). “It is in seasons of temporal prosperity that we are most apt to decline spiritually, and generally we have to pass through deep waters of trouble before we are restored — the snapping dog of adversity is employed to recover the strayed sheep. Afflictions are blessings in disguise when they cool our lusts, wean us from the world, make us realize our weakness, and cast us back immediately upon God. So declared the Psalmist: “It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn Thy statutes” (Psalm 119: 71). Then “despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of Him” (Hebrews 12:5).” —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

Taken from “An Exposition of Hebrews” by A. W. Pink (1886-1952)
