"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"


"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"
Psalm 22:1

We here behold the Saviour in the depth of his sorrows. 
No other place so well shows the griefs of Christ as Calvary, 
and no other moment at Calvary is so full of agony as that in which his cry rends the air--"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" 
At this moment physical weakness was united with acute mental torture from the shame and ignominy through which he had to pass; and to make his grief culminate with emphasis, 
he suffered spiritual agony surpassing all expression, 
resulting from the departure of his Father's presence. 

This was the black midnight of his horror; 
then it was that he descended the abyss of suffering. 
No man can enter into the full meaning of these words. 
Some of us think at times that we could cry, 
"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" 
There are seasons when the brightness of our Father's smile is eclipsed by clouds and darkness;
 but let us remember that God never does really forsake us. 
It is only a seeming forsaking with us, but in Christ's case it was a real forsaking. 
We grieve at a little withdrawal of our Father's love;
 but the real turning away of God's face from his Son, 
who shall calculate how deep the agony which it caused him?

In our case, our cry is often dictated by unbelief: in his case, 
it was the utterance of a dreadful fact, 
for God had really turned away from him for a season. 
O thou poor, distressed soul, who once lived in the sunshine of God's face, 
but art now in darkness, remember that he has not really forsaken thee. 

God in the clouds is as much our God as when he shines forth in all the lustre of his grace; 
but since even the thought that he has forsaken us gives us agony, 
what must the woe of the Saviour have been when he exclaimed, 
"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"

"Gather not my soul with sinners."


"Gather not my soul with sinners." 
 Psalm 26:9

Fear made David pray thus, for something whispered, 
"Perhaps, after all, thou mayst be gathered with the wicked." 
That fear, although marred by unbelief, springs, in the main, 
from holy anxiety, arising from the recollection of past sin. 

Even the pardoned man will enquire, 
"What if at the end my sins should be remembered, 
and I should be left out of the catalogue of the saved?"
 He recollects his present unfruitfulness-so little grace, 
so little love, so little holiness, and looking forward to the future, 
he considers his weakness and the many temptations which beset him, and he fears that he may fall, and become a prey to the enemy. 

A sense of sin and present evil, 
and his prevailing corruptions, compel him to pray, 
in fear and trembling, "Gather not my soul with sinners." 
Reader, if you have prayed this prayer, 
and if your character be rightly described in the Psalm from which it is taken, you need not be afraid that you shall be gathered with sinners. 

Have you the two virtues which David had-the outward walking in integrity, and the inward trusting in the Lord? 
Are you resting upon Christ's sacrifice, 
and can you compass the altar of God with humble hope?
 If so, rest assured, with the wicked you never shall be gathered, 
for that calamity is impossible. 

The gathering at the judgment is like to like. 
"Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn."
 If, then, thou art like God's people, thou shalt be with God's people. 
You cannot be gathered with the wicked, 
for you are too dearly bought. 

Redeemed by the blood of Christ, you are his for ever, and where he is, there must his people be. 
You are loved too much to be cast away with reprobates. 
Shall one dear to Christ perish? 
Impossible! Hell cannot hold thee! Heaven claims thee! 
Trust in thy Surety and fear not!

"I will rejoice over them to do them good."


"I will rejoice over them to do them good." 
 Jeremiah 32:41

How heart-cheering to the believer is the delight which God has in his saints! 
We cannot see any reason in ourselves why the Lord should take pleasure in us; 
we cannot take delight in ourselves, for we often have to groan, 
being burdened; conscious of our sinfulness, 
and deploring our unfaithfulness; and we fear that God's people cannot take much delight in us, 
for they must perceive so much of our imperfections and our follies, 
that they may rather lament our infirmities than admire our graces. 

But we love to dwell upon this transcendent truth, 
this glorious mystery: that as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so does the Lord rejoice over us. 

We do not read anywhere that God delighteth in the cloud-capped mountains, or the sparkling stars, 
but we do read that he delighteth in the habitable parts of the earth, 
and that his delights are with the sons of men. 
We do not find it written that even angels give his soul delight; 
nor doth he say, concerning cherubim and seraphim,
 "Thou shalt be called Hephzibah, for the Lord delighteth in thee"; 
but he does say all that to poor fallen creatures like ourselves, 
debased and depraved by sin, but saved, exalted, 
and glorified by his grace. 

In what strong language he expresses his delight in his people! Who could have conceived of the eternal One as bursting forth into a song?
Yet it is written, "He will rejoice over thee with joy, 
he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. "

 As he looked upon the world he had made, he said, 
"It is very good"; but when he beheld those who are the purchase of Jesus' blood, his own chosen ones, 
it seemed as if the great heart of the Infinite could restrain itself no longer, but overflowed in divine exclamations of joy. 

Should not we utter our grateful response to such a marvellous declaration of his love, and sing, "I will rejoice in the Lord, 
I will joy in the God of my salvation?"
