Psalm 115

115     Lamentation (trust) / Trust (community)

            Trust in God, Not Any Idol

            11 You who fear the LORD, trust in the LORD;

            He is their help and their shield.

·         It has a mighty effect in humbling us, in making us quiet under affliction, and patient under denial of our petitions to know that we deserve all the evil, and none of the good that befalls us.

·         “When we have brought ourselves into misery, and our religion into danger of disgrace; we ought to be more careful to have the Lord restored to his honor, and true religion to its own beauty, than to be freed from misery.” (Dickson)
