He that giveth strength and power unto His people

The God of Israel is He that giveth strength and power unto His people. Blessed be God.—Psalm 68:35.

 

I will meet distress and pain,

I will greet e’en Death’s dark reign,

I will lay me in the grave

With a heart still glad and brave;

Whom the Strongest doth defend,

Whom the Highest counts His friend,

Cannot perish in the end.

Paul Gerhardt.

 

Could we but live more entirely in the unseen Presence, and trust to the unseen support,—and if lonely, or disappointed, or depressed, turn more quickly to God, fully confident of His all-embracing care, believing in His perfect love, the tender sympathy with which He ever regards us, how different life would be from what it ordinarily is! Yet we doubt not that Divine support is assured to us, if we seek to do what is pleasing in His sight. If the end we desire comes not, yet there is rest in the assurance that we have told Him all, and left it to Him to do what He wills.

T. T. Carter.

 

How reasonable it is to trust ourselves to the keeping of infinite love, and infinite wisdom, and infinite power!

Thomas Erskine.
