(J. C. Ryle, “The Gospel of John”)
“I am poor and needy; yet the
Lord thinks upon me.” Psalm 40:17
Christ cares for all His believing people,
and never forgets them. He knows
where they dwell, and what their trials are.
A book of remembrance is written for them.
Their tears are all in His bottle! Their names
are engraved on the palms of His hands.
He notices all they do for Him in this evil
world, though they think it not worth notice.
Let believers remember this.
In their worst estate they may boldly say
with David, “I am poor and needy; yet the
Lord thinks upon me.” Psalm 40:1
His book of remembrance!
Something to ponder:
