“Offer to God thanksgiving, and pay your vows to the Most High. Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me…. Whoever offers praise glorifies Me; and to him who orders his conduct aright I will show the salvation of God.” Psalm 50:14-15, 23 [See also Isaiah 25:9.]

Nothing moves God more to hear us than the glorifying of Him by faith with thanksgiving, and the keeping up of a childlike confidence in Him as our reconciled Father in Christ; and nothing quickens faith more than sure promises of answers to our prayers. Thus God will certainly hear and deliver us since all His dealings with us are designed to strengthen us in faith and to save our souls. Why, then, should we be afraid in times of trouble? 0ught we not rather to draw near to God in prayer and thanksgiving and glorify Him even beforehand, confidently believing that we shall certainly meet with new deliverances and fresh accessions to our faith? There is no uncertainty about this, for the promises are plain, positive, and sure. It is impossible for God to lie. Heaven and earth may pass away — but the word of our God abides forever. Trust the promise, or rather, trust the Promiser, and expect Him to do as He has said. This will glorify Him.

To what a stubborn frame
Has sin reduced our mind!
What strange ungrateful wretches we,
And God as strangely kind!

Turn, turn us, mighty God,
And mold our souls afresh.
Break, sovereign grace, these hearts of stone,
And give us hearts of flesh.
