Psalm 31:7 KJV “I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;”
When your hand has been trapped in the cookie jar or caught, you are guilty. Especially if you’ve been told to stay away from the cookies! Our hands, through Adam and Eve, were caught and trapped in the cookie jar known as the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Knowing this, we should be glad, ecstatic, and eternally grateful in the grace and mercy shown towards us. This is why the Psalmist wrote he would be glad and rejoice in the LORD’s mercy.
The LORD God took the time to consider our trouble and knows our adversities, I say be glad and rejoice in the mercy of our Creator!

Psalm 31 King James Version (KJV)
1 In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.
2 Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.
3 For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name’s sake lead me, and guide me.
4 Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.
5 Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.
6 I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the Lord.
7 I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
8 And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.
9 Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.
10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength
faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.
11 I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my
neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me
without fled from me.
12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.
