Rough as he was, Shamgar was honoured of God, and his humble weapon is laid up among the most renowned treasures of the Lord’s armoury. God can use us for great purposes, and he will do so, if we have real faith in him, and full submission to his will.
Beset with darkness, pressed with cares,
To God, in grief, I cried;
His mercy listened to my prayers,
His hand my wants supplied.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me!
His might, his mercies, prove!
How blest his sway! oh, taste and see
How vast, how kind, his love!
