“O Lord, Thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul.”


Come and see the Lord is good, come and see the Lord is good, there is nothing He cannot do, come see the Lord is good.// everybody testify You are good, You are good Jehovah, You are so good, everybody testify You are good, You are good Jehovah You are so good.

Yes! let the living Praise the Lord, and testify that He is good, for His mercies enduerth forever. Thank God for a beautiful day He has made, thank Him for the miracle of sleeping and waking up in good health and strength. Let us Praise His Name forever and ever and ever.

Father we cannot thank You enough for the good things You have done to us, glory be to Your Name on high. What a mighty God we serve. Creator of heaven and of earth, the Maker of the universe, Precious, Redeemer Soon coming King, receive our Praise forever and ever in Jesus Name.

We worship You, we bow down be Thou glorify forever more.

Beloved, how are doing today? Did you observe something on the series that we have been having for a while now? When the Lord promised deliverance and restoration, He did not just say it, He meant it. He has gone from pleading us His portion to pleading the causes of our soul. Praise the Lord.

Beloved, this is an assurance to any hurting soul that God will plead your cause, if the prophet was so confident; let us also exhibit same and declare that we know that God will plead our causes and we will be restored. Let nothing create any doubt in our Spirit, let nothing weaken our spirit rather let us rejoice in the Lord our Saviour and be glad indeed.

Praise the Lord O my soul and all that is within me Praise His Holy Name, for He surely plead my cause and His Name alone be glorify in Jesus Name.

Let us discover more:

“O Lord, Thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul.” Lamentations 3:58


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, ascribing 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.

Yes! let us sing joyfully and shout triumphantly to the Lord Most High Who delivered us from the snares of the wicked, Praise the Lord!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! come on for more:

“The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks.” Proverbs 30:26


Conscious of their own natural defenselessness, the conies resort to burrows in the rocks, and are secure from their enemies. My heart, be willing to gather a lesson from these feeble folk. Thou art as weak and as exposed to peril as the timid cony, be as wise to seek a shelter. My best security is within the munitions of an immutable Jehovah, where His unalterable promises stand like giant walls of rock.

It will be well with thee, my heart, if thou canst always hide thyself in the bulwarks of His glorious attributes, all of which are guarantees of safety for those who put their trust in Him. Blessed be the name of the Lord, I have so done, and have found myself like David in Adullam, safe from the cruelty of my enemy; I have not now to find out the blessedness of the man who puts his trust in the Lord, for long ago, when Satan and my sins pursued me, I fled to the cleft of the rock Christ Jesus, and in His riven side I found a delightful resting-place.

My heart, run to Him anew today, whatever thy present grief may be; Jesus feels for thee; Jesus consoles thee; Jesus will help thee. No monarch in his impregnable fortress is more secure than the cony in his rocky burrow. The master of ten thousand chariots is not one whit better protected than the little dweller in the mountain’s cleft.

In Jesus the weak are strong, and the defenceless safe; they could not be more strong if they were giants, or more safe if they were in heaven. Faith gives to men on earth the protection of the God of heaven. More they cannot need, and need not wish. The conies cannot build a castle, but they avail themselves of what is there already: I cannot make myself a refuge, but Jesus has provided it, His Father has given it, His Spirit has revealed it, and lo, again today I enter it, and am safe from every foe.

Yes! safe from every foes and every shame Praise be the Name of the Lord who giveth me songs in the night. Glory, alleluia to the King of kings in Jesus Name Amen alleluia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Join me to sing this song to the Lord –

Blessed the Lord, O my soul,

Oooh my soul,

Worship His Holy Name,

Sing like never before,

Oooh my soul,

Worship His Holy Name….

Remain blessed in the Lord.
