Psalm 70

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)
