Psalm 88:1-3

In Psalm 88:1-3 we read, "O Lord God of my salvation,
I have cried day and night before thee: Let my prayer
come before thee: Incline thine ear unto my cry; for
my soul is full of troubles; and my life draweth nigh
unto the grave." I want to speak to you on this
subject today, "Things that men give all their thought
and time to that cannot save their souls." Notice in
Psalms 88, "O Lord, God of my salvation." Notice that
the Psalmist's life is full of trouble and his life is
drawing nigh unto the grave, and the only hope he has
is the Lord God of his salvation. He is able to cry,
"O Lord God of MY salvation." Now notice that
expression, MY SALVATION. He knew that he had
salvation. He had deliverance. He was in a state of
safety and he knew it, and he could cry out, "0 Lord
God of MY salvation."

It is wonderful to be able to say that, friends, if
you really have it. Now there are multitudes that
cannot say, "0 Lord God of MY salvation," because they
do not have salvation. Why do they not? Because they
have false ideas about values. They are putting their
minds, and their time, and their energy and all their
thoughts, upon things that cannot save. God says in
Isaiah, concerning the heathen that bow before idols,
"Why do you cry unto those that cannot save? Why do
you cry unto that which cannot deliver you?" When you
are in sickness, or when you come to die, or when you
sustain some terrific sorrow or shock in life, when
loved ones are snatched out of your arms into
Eternity, why are you trusting something that cannot
help you in an hour like that? They have ears but they
hear not, and eyes that cannot see, tongues that can't
speak words of comfort, hands that cannot reach out to
you and feet that cannot walk to you to help you.


Everywhere I go I find that men are giving their time
