And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
from David: Man of Passion and Destiny
A number of years ago my sister, Luci, gave me a volume I treasure . . . and in the front of the book she wrote these words from an old poem—words I immediately memorized and have never forgotten:
Whom have we Lord, but Thee, Soul—thirst to satisfy?
Exhaustless spring, The water is free,
All other streams are dry.
We Christians, I have observed, frequently have trouble believing He is our only hope, security, light, and strength because we are so prone to try everything else. We automatically depend upon everything except the Lord. Yet still He waits there for us—patiently waiting to show Himself strong. . .
He proves Himself strong in our weakness: He sheds light in our darkness: He becomes hope in our uncertainty and security in our confusion. He is the Centerpiece of our lives.
Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
