“They could not be in better hands” by William Plumer

“Even in this world of sorrow no small part of our fit work is praise (Psalm 30:1).

As long as life lasts, especially in the case of the righteous, mercies greatly abound.

Much more will they be called to praise in heaven.

Let us extol Him here with heart and voice, for life and all its blessings; then may we hope to spend our eternity in His blissful presence and service.

If God exalts us, let us exalt Him.

If He humbles us without destroying us, let us count it a great mercy, and give thanks.

All the vicissitudes of our earthly existence are subject to His sovereign disposal.

They could not be in better hands.”

–William Plumer, Studies in the Book of Psalms: A Critical and Expository Commentary With Doctrinal and Practical Remarks (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 1867/2016), 382. Plumer is commenting on Psalm 30:1.
