But Zion said, The LORD has forsaken me, and my Lord has forgotten me.
How common is this weakness of unbelief in man; how natural are these unworthy doubts of God to us. Nor is it difficult to perceive the sources from which this inability to trust in God's goodness springs.
1. There is the guilt of which we are conscious in our own hearts; the sense of evil desert m ourselves.
2. Then there comes in the undeniable fact of suffering in himself and all around him, which apparently, at first sight, justifies this attitude of mind, and certainly confirms it.
3. We thus discover a third source from which distrust in God springs; the perversions which have been substituted for the pure Gospel by different branches of the Christian Church
