Solace, Security, Satisfaction


Solace, Security, Satisfaction

"Although my house be not so with God; yet he hath made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things, and sure: for this is all my salvation, and all my desire, although he make it not to grow."
 (2 Samuel 23:5)

This is not so much one promise as an aggregate of promises -- a box of pearls. The covenant is the ark which contains all things.

These are the last words of David, but they may be mine today. 
Here is a sigh: things are not with me and mine as I could wish; there are trials, cares, and sins. 
These make the pillow hard.

Here is a solace -- "He hath made with me an everlasting covenant." 
Jehovah has pledged Himself to me, and sealed the compact with the blood of Jesus. 
I am bound to my God and my God to me.

This brings into prominence a security, since this covenant is everlasting, well ordered, and sure. 
There is nothing to fear from the lapse of time, the failure of some forgotten point, or the natural uncertainty of things. 
The covenant is a rocky foundation to build on for life or for death.

David feels satisfaction: he wants no more for salvation or delectation.
 He is delivered, and he is delighted. 
The covenant is all a man can desire.

O my soul, turn thou this day to thy Lord Jesus, whom the great Lord has given to be a covenant to the people. 
Take Him to be thine all in all.

Into thine hand I commit my spirit


"Into thine hand I commit my spirit: 
thou hast redeemed me, O Lord God of truth."
Psalm 31:5

These words have been frequently used by holy men in their hour of departure.
 We may profitably consider them this evening. 
The object of the faithful man's solicitude in life and death is not his body or his estate, but his spirit; this is his choice treasure--if this be safe, all is well.
 What is this mortal state compared with the soul? 
The believer commits his soul to the hand of his God; it came from him, it is his own, he has aforetime sustained it, he is able to keep it, and it is most fit that he should receive it.

 All things are safe in Jehovah's hands; what we entrust to the Lord will be secure, both now and in that day of days towards which we are hastening. 
It is peaceful living, and glorious dying, to repose in the care of heaven.
 At all times we should commit our all to Jesus' faithful hand; then, though life may hang on a thread, and adversities may multiply as the sands of the sea, our soul shall dwell at ease, and delight itself in quiet resting places.

"Thou hast redeemed me, O Lord God of truth."
 Redemption is a solid basis for confidence. 
David had not known Calvary as we have done, but temporal redemption cheered him; and shall not eternal redemption yet more sweetly console us? Past deliverances are strong pleas for present assistance.
 What the Lord has done he will do again, for he changes not. 
He is faithful to his promises, and gracious to his saints; he will not turn away from his people.

"Though thou slay me I will trust,

Praise thee even from the dust,

Prove, and tell it as I prove,

Thine unutterable love.

Thou mayst chasten and correct,

But thou never canst neglect;

Since the ransom price is paid,

On thy love my hope is stay'd."

Uncover and Confess Sin


Uncover and Confess Sin


"He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: 
but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy." 
(Proverbs 28:13)

Here is the way of mercy for a guilty and repenting sinner.
He must cease from the habit of covering sin.
This is attempted by falsehood, which denies sin; by hypocrisy, which conceals it;
by boasting, which justifies it; and by loud profession, which tries to make amends for it.

The sinner's business is to confess and forsake.
The two must go together. Confession must be honestly made to the Lord Himself,
 and it must include within itself acknowledgment of the wrong, sense of its evil,
and abhorrence of it.
We must not throw the fault upon others, nor blame circumstances, nor plead natural weakness.
We must make a clean breast of it and plead guilty to the indictment.
 There can be no mercy till this is done.

Furthermore, we must forsake the evil; having owned our fault,
we must disown all present and future intent to abide in it.
We cannot remain in rebellion and yet dwell with the King's majesty.
The habit of evil must be quitted, together with all places, companions,
pursuits, and books which might lead us astray.
Not for confession, nor for reformation,
but in connection with them we find pardon by faith in the blood of Jesus.

And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters


2 Corinthians 6 King James Version (KJV)

1 We then, as workers together with him, 
beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.

2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, 
and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: 
behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
3 Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:

4 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, 
in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,

5 In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;

6 By pureness, by knowledge, by long suffering, by kindness, 
by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,

7 By the word of truth, by the power of God, 
by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

8 By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;

9 As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; 
as chastened, and not killed;

10 As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; 
as poor, yet making many rich; 
as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

11 O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged.

12 Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own bowels.

13 Now for a recompence in the same, 
(I speak as unto my children,) be ye also enlarged.

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: 
for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?
 and what communion hath light with darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? 
or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? 
for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, 
and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, 
and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, 
saith the Lord Almighty.

I write it in their hearts


Jeremiah 31:33 King James Version (KJV)

But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; 
After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, 
and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Speak What He Teaches


Speak What He Teaches

"Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say."
 (Exodus 4:12)

Many a true servant of the Lord is slow of speech, and when called upon to plead for his Lord, 
he is in great confusion lest he should spoil a good cause by his bad advocacy. 
In such a case it is well to remember that the Lord made the tongue which is so slow, and we must take care that we do not blame our maker. 
It may be that a slow tongue is not so great an evil as a fast one, and fewness of words may be more of a blessing than floods of verbiage. 
It is also quite certain that real saving power does not lie in human rhetoric, with its tropes, and pretty phrases, and grand displays. 
Lack of fluency is not so great a lack as it looks.

If God be with our mouth, and with our mind, we shall have something better than the sounding brass of eloquence or the tinkling cymbal of persuasion. 
God's teaching is wisdom; His presence is power. 
Pharaoh had more reason to be afraid of stammering Moses than of the most fluent talker in Egypt; for what he said had power in it; he spoke plagues and deaths.
 If the Lord be with us in our natural weakness we shall be girt with supernatural power. 
Therefore, let us speak for Jesus boldly, as we ought to speak.
