He is the Rock, His work is perfect

He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are judgment; a God of truth, and without iniquity, just and right is He.—Deuteronomy 32:4.

We are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.—Psalm 100:3.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.—Psalm 23:1, 4.

 

Duties are ours, events are the Lord’s; when our faith goeth to meddle with events, and to hold a court (if I may so speak) upon God’s Providence, and beginneth to say, “How wilt Thou do this or that?” we lose ground; we have nothing to do there; it is our part to let the Almighty exercise His own office, and steer His own helm; there is nothing left us, but to see how we may be approved of Him, and how we may roll the weight of our weak souls, in well-doing, upon Him who is God omnipotent, and when what we thus essay miscarrieth, it shall neither be our sin nor cross.

Samuel Rutherford.

 

Shall there be a mutiny among the flocks and herds, because their lord or their shepherd chooses their pastures, and suffers them not to wander into deserts and unknown ways?

Jeremy Taylor.
