Psalms 138* The psalmist praises God for answering prayer. (1-5) TheLord's dealing with the humble and the proud. (6-8)1-5 When we can praise God with our whole heart, we need not beunwilling for the whole world to witness our gratitude and joyin him. Those who rely on his loving-kindness and truth throughJesus Christ, will ever find him faithful to his word. If hespared not his own Son, how shall he not with him freely give usall things? If God gives us strength in our souls, to bear theburdens, resist the temptations, and to do the duties of anafflicted state, if he strengthens us to keep hold of himself byfaith, and to wait with patience for the event, we are bound tobe thankful. 6-8 Though the Lord is high, yet he has respect to every lowly,humbled sinner; but the proud and unbelieving will be banishedfar from his blissful presence. Divine consolations have enoughin them to revive us, even when we walk in the midst oftroubles. And God will save his own people that they may berevived by the Holy Spirit, the Giver of life and holiness. Ifwe give to God the glory of his mercy, we may take to ourselvesthe comfort. This confidence will not do away, but quickenprayer. Whatever good there is in us, it is God works in us bothto will and to do. The Lord will perfect the salvation of everytrue believer, and he will never forsake those whom he hascreated anew in Christ Jesus unto good works
