What a great God we have!
What a God is Jahwe! And Jahwe, in Jesus — is ours!
How cheering this fact, and what sweet support it yields to the mind — to meditate on God's perfections and glorious attributes — seeing them all in Jesus — and in Him, engaged for our present and everlasting welfare!
What could shake our minds — if we did but firmly believe that God's omnipotence is engaged to defend us to the uttermost?
What could tempt us to commit any known sin — if we were realizing that God's omniscient eye is ever upon us; yes, that God is present with us, and that He is our sin-hating Father?
What could lead us into murmuring and rebellion — if we were fully persuaded that God's holiness and justice are for us, and will shine resplendent in all His dealings with us?
What could lead us to think that our prayers would not be answered, nor our petitions be regarded — if our minds were influenced by the assurance, that God is truth?
How could we believe that He would ever turn against us — if we rightly viewed His immutability?
Or, how could we think that our affairs could be disordered — if we felt satisfied that His wisdom was working for us at all times!
"The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress!" (Psalm 46:7)
