"OUR SUFFICIENCY IS OF GOD." How well do you know Him? Are you trusting in Him? To His people, God is the object of their adoration and trust, the subject of their meditation, and the source of all their happiness. To be our God is more than being our friend, helper, or benefactor. He engages to do us good according to His all sufficient power, to bestow upon us blessings which none else can. Only He can pardon us and pardon us He will. Only He as God can sanctify us, comfort us, and glorify us. He is our God, He is our all, and all He has is ours. He is our inheritance and a glorious inheritance is He. When in danger, in darkness, in distress, in temptation, in doubt, or in pain, God will be to you a God, delivering, enlightening, comfor ting, strengthening, and sanctifying. Make Him your God, look to Him for all He has promised, which is all you want; adore His divine perfections, and rejoice that they are all engaged to bless you. Live to His glory, walk by His word, and He will glorify Himself in your present and everlasting welfare. He rejoiceth to do His people good. He delights to bless them, for to them He is their God.
Here would I dwell and ne'er remove;
Here I am safe from all alarms;
My rest is "everlasting love,"
My refuge "everlasting arms."
