(by Octavius Winslow)
AS INFINITE AS HIS BEING
What a source of joy you have in Jehovah
amid the joyless, sorrowful path you may tread.
There is everything in Him to make you
happy. Everything to win your confidence,
to inspire your love, to awaken your joy.
Creatures shall fail,
resources shall fail,
hopes shall fail, but
God will never fail you!
His love is as changeless,
power is as omnipotent,
faithfulness is as firm,
resources are as boundless,
as infinite as His being.
Are you ever weary . . .
If so, you want something to give you rest.
So look where you will, there is no rest for the
sole of your foot.
But there is a rest. Our blessed Lord says, “Come to
Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens,
and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
Instead of a river, God often gives us a brook–which may be running today, and dried up tomorrow.
To teach us not to rest in our blessings–but in the blesser Himself.
“Hold me up–and I shall be safe!” Psalm 119:117
“So do not fear–for I am with you! Do not be dismayed–for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand!” Isaiah 41:10
