God is my rock, on whom I build my hope. Believers should not rest till they have received some token that their prayers are heard. Pray that you may not be numbered with the wicked. Pray you are saved from being entangled in the snares laid for you. Save me from being infected with their sins, and from doing as they do. Lord, never leave me to use such arts of deceit and treachery for my safety, as they use for my ruin. Believers will dread the way of sinners; the best are sensible of the danger they are in of being drawn aside: we should all pray earnestly to God for his grace to keep us.
Those who are careful not to partake with sinners in their sins, have reason to hope that they shall not receive their plagues. We are shown of the just judgments of the Lord on the workers of iniquity, Psalms 28:4.
This is not the language of passion or revenge. It is a prophecy that there will certainly come a day, when God will punish every man who persists in his evil deeds. Sinners shall be reckoned with, not only for the mischief they have done, but for the mischief they designed, and did what they could to effect. Disregard of the works of the Lord, is the cause of the sin of sinners, and becomes the cause of their ruin.
Those that truly love God, may triumph in him as their Rock and Refuge, and may with confidence call upon him. It is good for us to observe all the circumstances of a mercy which magnify the power of God and his goodness to us in it.
Happy people are those who have their land filled with the knowledge of God! happy persons that have their hearts filled with that knowledge! It is the glory and happiness of a people to have God among them by his ordinances. Wherein the enemies of the church deal proudly, it will appear that God is above them. See the power of God’s rebukes. With pleasure may Christians apply this to the advantages bestowed by the Redeemer.
Here is God’s love in giving his Son for the world. God so loved the world; so really, so richly.
