Remember me, O LORD, with the favor that you bore to your people: O visit me with your salvation;…
I. WHO THE LORD'S PEOPLE ARE. They are a people who, deeply sensible of their own guiltiness and vileness, rest simply upon Jesus as their Saviour from the wrath to come. They are a people led also by the Spirit of the Saviour they believe in; actuated by His love; conformed to His image.
II. THE FAVOUR WHICH THE LORD BEARS UNTO HIS PEOPLE.
1. He sends His Spirit into their hearts to dwell with and abide in them — to work in them both to will and to do what is pleasing in His eyes.
2. He gives them His Word, full of precious things — comforts, invitations, promises, directions.
3. He makes all things work together for their good.
4. He gives them free access to Himself in prayer.
III. THE PRAYER IN THE TEXT.
I. We are here taught what to do, if we fear that we have no part nor lot in the Lord's favour to His people. Pray for it.
2. Imitate the fervency of the psalmist in seeking for a clear, personal interest in these privileges.
(A. Roberts, M.A.)
