The Testimony of God’s Servants

Psalm 119:65 is a verse which all of God’s saints can bear witness to; there is not one who cannot: “You have dealt well with Your servant, O LORD, according to Your word.”

— Those who currently feel satisfied with provision God has given them will quote it gratefully: every saint after a good meal, or enjoying his home and provisions, or a sweet prayer and worship time — and especially those who realize that it is only by God’s mercy that they are saved. There are none of us who “deserve” forgiveness or salvation — but God was “rich in mercy” as Ephesians 2:4 says. He has certainly dealt well with His servants! But there are others, perhaps surprisingly, who will testify of God’s good dealings as well:

— Those on earth who have endured trials will one day look back and proclaim how well God has dealt with them. In fact, this very Psalmist shared that testimony in :67, “It was good for me that I was afflicted …”. God deals well with His servants, even through their difficulties!

— And even those who have perished from earth will declare from heaven God’s benevolent dealings with them. Hardship, suffering, and even painful death was worth it all; for those difficulties were for a brief time only, and now they enjoy endless eternal glory in His presence. These best of all happily testify from heaven, that God has dealt well with them!

There is not ONE of God’s saints who will not share the testimony of Psalm 119:65, “You have dealt well with Your servant, O LORD!”
