We are led by the power of His grace

(J.C. Philpot, “King of Kings”)  LISTEN to Audio!  Download Audio

We daily and hourly feel the workings of . . .
mighty sins,
raging lusts,
powerful temptations,
besetting evils,
against the least and feeblest of which, we have no strength.

But as the eye of faith views our blessed Lord at the right hand of the Father–we are led by the power of His grace to . . .
look unto Him,The character of our blessed redeemer
hang upon Him,
and seek help from Him.

Trials in providence,
afflictions in the family,
sickness and infirmities in the body,
opposition and persecution from the world,
a vile, unbelieving heart, which we can neither sanctify nor subdue,
a rough and rugged path, increasing in difficulty as we journey onward,
doubts, fears, and misgivings in our own heart,
inward slips and falls,
startings aside,
hourly backslidings from the strait and narrow path,
jealous enemies watching for our halting
–with no eye to pity, nor arm to help.

How all these foes and fears make us feel our need of an enthroned King, Head and Husband . . .

  whose tender heart is soft to pity,
whose mighty arm is strong to relieve!

“I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you:
Do not fear; I will help you!
Do not be afraid, O worm Jacob, O little Israel, for I Myself will help you!
declares the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel!”
Isaiah 41:13-14

“Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.
I have called you by name; you are Mine!
When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.
And When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.
For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior!”
Isaiah 43:1-3
