To him we can appeal

‘O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.’ Psalm 43:3
SUGGESTED FURTHER READING: Psalm 43:1–5

This psalm was probably penned by David in some time of trouble. He met with much injustice and trouble from men, but the Lord was his God. To him he could appeal as a righteous Judge that would in good time plead his cause. He was sometimes driven from the sanctuary below and the public worship, but he could not be cut off from immediate communion with him who is not confined to temples made with hands. His sixty-third psalm we are expressly told was made in the wilderness; perhaps likewise this—and we see how full of spiritual and divine breathings he is when cut off from the ordinances. For no matter where we are driven, if the Lord goes with us, nor what we are deprived of, if he is our God, and is pleased to manifest his presence. Let men do their utmost; though I am confined to a desert, yet thou art all-sufficient. O send forth thy light. These words express the desires of an awakened soul. By nature we can neither understand or form such a wish as this. Many of you have perhaps often repeated them in the service without knowing what you meant, but I am persuaded there are some amongst you who can heartily join with them; they express the very language of your souls. May our present meditations on them be made a means to add new life to your desires and strength to your faith.
FOR MEDITATION:
Kindle, Saviour, in my heart
’Tis a strange mysterious life
A flame of love divine;
I live from day to day;
Hear, hear, for mine I trust thou art,
Light and darkness, peace and strife,
And sure I would be thine:
Bear an alternate sway;
If my soul has felt thy grace,
But when CHRIST, my LORD and Friend,
If to me thy name is known;
Is pleased to show his power;
Why should trifles fill the place,
All at once my troubles end,
Due to thyself alone?
And I’ve a golden hour.

SERMON: PSALM 43:3 [1/5]
