We know where it ends

(Charles Spurgeon)

Life is ever changing. Who can tell what may come next? Today it is fair — the next day there may be the thundering storm. Today I may need nothing — tomorrow I may be like Jacob, with nothing but a stone for my pillow and the heavens for my curtains.

But what a happy thought it is: though we do not know where the road winds — we know where it ends!

We may have to go through trial and affliction; the pilgrimage may be a tiresome one — but it is safe. We cannot trace the river upon which we are sailing — but we know it ends in floods of bliss! We cannot track the roads — but we know that they all meet in the great metropolis of Heaven! God help us to pursue the true pilgrimage of a pious life!

“He led them forth by the right way — that they might go to a city of habitation!” Psalm 107:7

With God, we know where it ends!

(Thomas Reade, “Christian Meditations”)

Do you love God?

Then rejoice in the sweet assurance, that nothing
shall be able to separate you from His love.

Do not fear.

He, who fills all space with his presence is your Friend.

His loving arm encircles you.

God’s power protects you.

His diligent eye is ever upon you.

His ear is ever open to your cry.

Nothing can harm you without His permission;
for He will make all things work together for
your good; He will supply all your needs,
according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
