As For God

god-is-our-rock

He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.–Psalm 23: 2- 3.

Out of obedience and devotion arises an habitual faith,
which makes Him,
though unseen,
a part of all our life.
He will guide us in a sure path,
though it be a rough one:
though shadows hang upon it,
yet He will be with us.
He will bring us home at last.
Through much trial it may be,
and weariness,
in much fear and fainting of heart,
in much sadness and loneliness,
in griefs that the world never knows,
and under burdens that the nearest never suspect.
Yet He will suffice for all.
By His eye or by His voice He will guide us,
if we be docile and gentle;
by His staff and by His rod,
if we wander or are wilful:
any how,
and by all means,
He will bring us to His rest.
H. E. MANNING.

Psalm 18:30-32
As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. 31 For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God? 32 It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
