Ever Feel Rejected by God?


Psalm 60:1

O God, you have rejected us, broken our defenses;
you have been angry; oh, restore us.

 

To be cast off by God is the worst calamity that can befall a man or a people; but the worst form of it is when the person is not aware of it and is indifferent to it. When the divine desertion causes mourning and repentance, it will be but partial and temporary. When a cast off soul sighs for its God it is indeed not cast off at all. 

C. H. Spurgeon in The Treasury of David
