You can trust God always

(J.R. Miller)

“You have not passed this way before!” Joshua 3:4

“Abraham named the place Jehovah-Jireh (which means ‘the LORD will provide’)” Genesis 22:14

As you begin meditating on this verse, write deep in your heart this word with the strongest confidence: Jehovah-Jireh. This name tells you . . .You can trust God always
You can trust God always;
  no promise of His ever fails;
  He does all things well;
  out of all seeming loss and destruction of human hopes, He brings blessing.

You have not passed this way before. There will be both sorrows and joys, both failures and successes. You cannot predict your future experiences. You cannot see the next step before your feet. Yet Jehovah-Jireh calls you to trust Him calmly. He bids you put away all anxieties and foreboding because the Lord will provide!

(J. C. Ryle, “The Cross of Christ“)


Are you a distressed believer?


Is your heart . . .
pressed down with sickness,
tried with disappointments,
overburdened with cares?

To you, I say, “Behold the cross of Christ!”

Think whose hand is allowing/measuring to you
the cup of bitterness which you are now drinking!

It is the hand of Him who was crucified!

It is the same hand which in love to your
soul was nailed to the accursed tree! Surely
that thought should comfort and hearten you.
Surely you should say to yourself, “A crucified
Savior will never allow anything to me that is
not for my good. It must be well.”  

Romans 8:28
