Psalms 145* David extols the power, goodness, and mercy of the Lord. (1-9)The glory of God's kingdom, and his care of those that love him.(10-21)1-9 Those who, under troubles and temptations, abound infervent prayer, shall in due season abound in grateful praise,which is the true language of holy joy. Especially we shouldspeak of God's wondrous work of redemption, while we declare hisgreatness. For no deliverance of the Israelites, nor thepunishment of sinners, so clearly proclaims the justice of God,as the cross of Christ exhibits it to the enlightened mind. Itmay be truly said of our Lord Jesus Christ, that his words arewords of goodness and grace; his works are works of goodness andgrace. He is full of compassion; hence he came into the world tosave sinners. When on earth, he showed his compassion both tothe bodies and souls of men, by healing the one, and making wisethe other. He is of great mercy, a merciful High Priest, throughwhom God is merciful to sinners. 10-21 All God's works show forth his praises. He satisfies thedesire of every living thing, except the unreasonable childrenof men, who are satisfied with nothing. He does good to all thechildren of men; his own people in a special manner. Manychildren of God, who have been ready to fall into sin, to fallinto despair, have tasted his goodness in preventing theirfalls, or recovering them speedily by his graces and comforts.And with respect to all that are heavy laden under the burden ofsin, if they come to Christ by faith, he will ease them, he willraise them. He is very ready to hear and answer the prayers ofhis people. He is present every where; but in a special way heis nigh to them, as he is not to others. He is in their hearts,and dwells there by faith, and they dwell in him. He is nigh tothose that call upon him, to help them in all times of need. Hewill be nigh to them, that they may have what they ask, and findwhat they seek, if they call upon him in truth and sincerity.And having taught men to love his name and holy ways, he willsave them from the destruction of the wicked. May we then lovehis name, and walk in his ways, while we desire that all fleshshould bless his holy name for ever and ever
