"O Lord, thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul."

"O Lord, thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul."

Observe how positively the prophet speaks. 
He doth not say, "I hope, I trust, I sometimes think,
 that God hath pleaded the causes of my soul;"
 but he speaks of it as a matter of fact not to be disputed. 

"Thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul." 

Let us, by the aid of the gracious Comforter, 
shake off those doubts and fears which so much 
mar our peace and comfort.

 Be this our prayer, that we may have done with the 

harsh croaking voice of surmise and 
suspicion, and may be able to speak with the clear, 
melodious voice of full assurance. 

Notice how gratefully the prophet speaks, 

 all the glory to God alone! You perceive there is not
 a word concerning himself or his own pleadings.

 He doth not ascribe his deliverance in any measure to

 any man, much less to his own merit; but it is 
"thou"--"O Lord, thou hast pleaded the causes of my 
soul; thou hast redeemed my life."

A grateful spirit should ever be cultivated by the Christian;

 and especially after deliverances we should prepare a song for our God. 

Earth should be a temple filled with the songs of grateful saints, 

and every day should be a censor smoking with 
the sweet incense of thanksgiving. 

How joyful Jeremiah seems to be while he records the 

Lord's mercy. How triumphantly he lifts up the strain! 
He has been in the low dungeon, 
and is even now no other than the weeping prophet; 
and yet in the very book which is called "Lamentations,"
 clear as the song of Miriam when she 
dashed her fingers against the tabor,

shrill as the note of Deborah when she met Barak with 

shouts of victory, we hear the voice of Jeremy going 
up to heaven--"Thou hast pleaded the causes of my 
soul; thou hast redeemed my life." 

O children of God, seek after a vital experience of the 

Lord's lovingkindness, and when you 
have it, speak positively of it; sing gratefully; 
shout triumphantly.

 “The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, 
not in its fashion and manner, 
but in the truth which it contains.
