It is the privilege of Christians to say, “For this God is our God forever and ever! He will be our guide even to the end!” Psalm 48:14
The believer is also called an heir of God, which implies that he is entitled, through grace, to all that the Infinite Jehovah possesses, so far as shall be needful to make him completely and eternally happy.
Christians, rejoice that God Himself is yours!
All of His glorious attributes and perfections are yours!
His mercy is yours . . .
to save you,
remove your guilt,
and sympathize with you in times of distress.
His wisdom is yours . . .
to provide for you,
and direct all things for your good.
His omnipotence is yours . . .
to guard and protect you in the hour of danger,
support you in every conflicting scene,
and preserve you unto His heavenly kingdom.
His goodness is yours . . .
to supply all your needs,
enrich you with the best of blessings,
and grant you unfading happiness in the mansions of glory.
His omniscience is yours . . .
to behold you in every situation, adverse or prosperous,
foresee all the attacks your adversaries intend to make upon you,
and provide for your present and everlasting security.
His omnipresence is yours, therefore He has said:
“In six troubles I will be with you, and in seven I will not forsake you.”
“I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
“Lo! I am with you always, even to the end of the world.”
His justice is yours . . .
to fulfill all covenant engagements,
reward you with a dwelling-place in the realms of bliss,
and punish all those hostile powers incessantly opposing you.
His immutability is the rock of your security, and the source of your unspeakable joy!
His faithfulness is yours, as the pledge for the accomplishment of all those promises which are exceeding great and precious to those who believe.
Such, Christians, is your happiness. Rejoice in it, and say, “The Lord is my portion, therefore I will hope in Him!”
God Himself is yours!
