Lamentation (persecuted and accused) / Trust (individual)
God Is My Light and My Salvation
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the defense of my life;
Whom shall I dread?
· Were our faith as strong as it should be, nothing could fill us with dismay or terror. Because God changes not, the state of his people is never desperate.
· Surely those, who hope to spend their eternity in the praises of God, ought to get their harps in tune to his service before they leave this world.
· Those, who exercise the grace they have, shall have more grace.
· “Albeit the Lord let the trouble lie on, and strong temptations to increase, and grief of heart to grow, yet must we still wait: for at the due time the outgate shall come.” (Dickson)
