Psalms 92

* Praise is the business of the sabbath. (1-6) The wicked shall

perish, but God's people shall be exalted. (7-15)1-6 It is a privilege that we are admitted to praise the Lord,

and hope to be accepted in the morning, and every night; not

only on sabbath days, but every day; not only in public, but in

private, and in our families. Let us give thanks every morning

for the mercies of the night, and every night for the mercies of

the day; going out, and coming in, let us bless God. As He makes

us glad, through the works of his providence for us, and of his

grace in us, and both through the great work of redemption, let

us hence be encouraged. As there are many who know not the

designs of Providence, nor care to know them, those who through

grace do so, have the more reason to be thankful. And if distant

views of the great Deliverer so animated believers of old, how

should we abound in love and praise!
7-15 God sometimes grants prosperity to wicked men in

displeasure; yet they flourish but for a moment. Let us seek for

ourselves the salvation and grace of the gospel, that being

daily anointed by the Holy Spirit, we may behold and share the

Redeemer's glory. It is from his grace, by his word and Spirit,

that believers receive all the virtue that keeps them alive, and

makes them fruitful. Other trees, when old, leave off bearing,

but in God's trees the strength of grace does not fail with the

strength of nature. The last days of the saints are sometimes

their best days, and their last work their best work:

perseverance is sure evidence of sincerity. And may every

sabbath, while it shows forth the Divine faithfulness, find our

souls resting more and more upon the Lord our righteousness
