"We might plead the word of promise with God, and humbly press His own truth upon Himself. Psalm 119:49: ‘Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.’ It is as if he had said, ‘Holy Lord! Thou hast encouraged me to hope, and I have Thy word for the ground of that encouragement. I am Thy servant to whom this promise is made, and have therefore reason to apply the word to my own case. And wilt Thou forget Thy word, and fail a servant of Thine who hopes upon Thy security? If Thou had never promised I would never have hoped; but since Thou hast caused me to hope, answer my hope.’ "
