(Thomas Watson, “The Christian’s Charter”)
“All things are yours!” 1 Corinthians 3:21
All things are a believer’s, because God is his.
“For this God is our God for ever and ever!” Psalm 48:14
“I am God — your God!” Psalm 50:7
God says to the believer, as the king of Israel said to
the king of Syria, “I am yours — and all that I have!”
This is a hive of divine comfort!
All that is in God — is ours!
His wisdom is ours to teach us!
And His love is ours to pity us!
His Spirit is ours to comfort us!
Because His mercy is ours to save us!
When God says to the soul, “I am yours,”
He can say no more!
So many are saying, “God will never rescue him!”
But You, O Lord, are a shield around me, my glory,
and the One who lifts my head high. Psalm 3:2-3
In darkest days faith shines with brightest glow.
In the wild storm it looks to God and sings. No
weapon can succeed against it. No billows can
God, even God Himself, surrounds His children
as a shield. The shaft which touches them
must pierce through God!
