Ascribe The Glory To God

O Lord, You have pleaded the case for my soul; You have redeemed my life. (Lamentations 3:58)

Observe how positively the prophet speaks. He speaks of it as a matter of fact not to be disputed.

Let us shake off those doubts and fears which so much mar our peace and comfort, and speak with the clear, melodious voice of full assurance.

Observe how gratefully the prophet speaks. He ascribes all the glory to God alone! He does not ascribe his deliverance to any man, including himself.

Observe how joyful the prophet seems to be while he records the Lord's mercy.

Let us seek after a vital experience of the Lord's lovingkindness, and when we have it, speak positively of it, sing gratefully, and shout triumphantly.
