O my God, my soul is in despair within me; Therefore I remember You from… Psalm 42:6a
There is no need for God to create a new thing upon the earth in order to restore believers to joy; if they would prayerfully rake the ashes of the past, they would find light for the present; and if they would turn to the book of truth and the throne of grace, their candle would soon shine as aforetime. Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1834-92, British Reformed Baptist, highly influential amongst Christians of different denominations

Deep calls to deep through the voice of Your waterfalls; all Your waves and Your billows have passed over me. Psalm 42:7 My soul was stirred to its depths and moved to its center by the voice of God. Charles H. Spurgeon, 1834-92

The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime; And His song will be with me in the night, A prayer to the God of my life. Psalm 42:8 The more I know him, the more I like him; the more I know him, the more I love him; the more I know him, the more I desire him; the more I know him, the more my heart is knit unto him. Thomas Brooks, 1608-81

(speaking to his soul) Fix my eyes on God-- soon I'll be praising again. He puts a smile on my face. He's my God. (Message) Psalm 42:11b You are going to live out what you confirm in your mind. Charles Stanley, b 1933, First Baptist Church of Atlanta pastor

Vindicate me, O God, and plead my case against an ungodly nation; deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man! Psalm 43:1 You are tempted almost beyond endurance, and think that you must yield. The seductions are so insidious, the pitfalls so carefully concealed, the charm of evil so subtle. But, if you will only look away to God, you will find Him a very present help to maintain your cause. F.B. Meyer, 1847-1929, English Baptist pastor evangelist - inner city ministry
