“The humble will eat and be satisfied; those who seek the LORD will praise Him. May your hearts live forever!” (Psalms 22:26 HCSB)

Charles Spurgeon—commentator on the Psalms extraordinaire—draws two points from this verse:

  1. “Note the characters who partake of the benefit of his passion; “the meek,” the humble and lowly.” Spurgeon applies this psalm directly to Christ [I think with good reason] and says, the one who benefits from the suffering of Christ is the meek.
  2. Note also the certainty that gospel provisions shall not be wasted, “they shall eat;” and the sure result of such eating, “and be satisfied.” 

The cross is wasted on the arrogant and the one filled with pride.  Not so the meek and lowly.
