Yet the Lord is utterly to be depended upon by all who have faith in him, and he will give you stability and protection against all that is evil. It is he who makes us feel confident about you, that you are acting and will act in accordance with our commands. May he guide your hearts into ever deeper understanding of his love and the patient suffering of Christ.
Oh, the glorious glory of Jesus! All the wondrous blessings we will reap in places He has sown! He is “utterly” dependable; there is no place, person or circumstance with which we cannot utterly trust Him. He gives “stability and protection” to us; we have absolutely nothing to fear. He gives us “confidence” in the fruitfulness of our labors for His Kingdom; they are actually His works, all along. And “May he guide our hearts into ever deeper understanding of his love and the patient suffering of Christ.” There is never any end to the depths and heights of the glory of this Jesus!
May we overwhelm ourselves in the goodness of His Gospel today!
