God is our help, and what a ground for comfort this is! Therefore, I beseech you do not be discouraged. Mourn we may like doves, but not like beast in our affliction. A Christian must look at the trouble with one eye, and to God with the other. See God to be your salvation. Let the trouble be what it will, if God is your deliver. It is no matter what the disease might be, if God is your physician.
The Lord is my present help and salvation. Though we are troubled with poverty, shame, or any other affliction, God is our salvation and help. If you are in trouble, God is deliverance; if you are persecuted by malicious enemies, God is your castle. Who is a rock, except our God? I call upon the Lord and I am saved from my enemies. David after all his victories describe God to be his God, and his salvation – both for body and soul, for the present and time to come, with means, without means, and against all means.
