Bible verse and quote
by Jan Couns
How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? Psalm 13:1 When He is out of our sight; we are not out of His. Matthew Henry, 1662-1714, was a Welsh-born, English nonconformist minister and Bible commentator
How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? Psalm 13:2a
Anxiety erodes the soul raw. We beg relief – some salve – oh God, yet we demand answers we have engineered as if they are derived in perfect wisdom. Must we languish on in such pain when relief is but to trust in Your ultimate goodness?
Look on me and answer, O Lord my God. Give light to my eyes, or my foes will rejoice when I fall. Psalm 13:3a,4b Lighten mine eyes: that is, let the eye of my faith be clear, that I may see my God in the dark; let my eye of watchfulness be wide open, lest I be entrapped, and let the eye of my understanding be illuminated to see the right way. Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1834-92
But I have trusted in Your mercy; My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. Psalm 13:5 Those who have known Him to be a God of inviolable truth and faithfulness will rejoice in and rest upon Him, though the performance be deferred and intermediate providences seem to contradict it. Matthew Henry, 1662-1714, was a Welsh-born, English nonconformist minister and Bible commentator
I will sing to the Lord, Because He has dealt bountifully with me. Psalm 13:6 When darkness veils His lovely face, I rest on His unchanging grace. In every high and stormy gale, My anchor holds within the veil. Edward Mote, 1797-1874, Baptist pastor at Horsham, Sussex, England
