Lamentation / Imprecatory
I Must Magnify God in My Distress
4 Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
And let those who love Your salvation say continually,
“Let God be magnified.”
· Sometimes God delays his answers that he may raise our estimate of his mercies and increase our longings after them.
· If we are poor and needy, sad and afflicted, so have others been before us; and if our trials make us meek and lowly, we cannot have too many of them, as long as we may come and tell God the worst of our case.
· “Poverty and necessity are very good pleas in prayer to a God of infinite mercy.” (Henry)
