A Page from Spurgeon

This one from Spurgeon again: (with my two cents in green!)

And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. (Psalm 50:15)

Here is an urgent occasion—"the day of trouble."  It is written for the cloudy day.  (We all have those!)

Here is [the] advice, "Call upon me." We ought not to need the exhortation: it should be our constant habit all the day and every day.  (Why does He have to remind us of the great treasure of power, comfort, help we have at our disposal in Him?  Who could forget that?!  A sinful, foolish and stiff-necked people.  That's who.)

Here is reassuring encouragement: "I will deliver thee."  We believe it, and the Lord honors faith.

Here is an ultimate result: "Thou shalt glorify me."  When He has delivered us we will loudly praise Him; and as He is sure to do it, let us begin to glorify Him at once.  (Already.  Before we see the results; before we even see any sign of His working -- Glorify His work!)
