Ministry on This Verse

as in months.
 It is nearly always a sign of present decrepitude if we are obliged to look backward to the past for marks of God’s favor. It is apt to be connected with pride in that past, as well as with discouragement in the present....Even past service, communion and joy in Christ, is left behind. The manna of yesterday will not do for today. (Job 3-31 by S. Ridout)

Oh that I were as in months past, as in the days when +God preserved me;
