God Is Our Source

I’ve been reminded of a favorite verse from “Before the Throne of God Above” …

“When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within
Upwards I look and see Him there
Who made an end to all my sin.
For the sinless Savior died
That my sinful soul may be counted free.
For God the Just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me.”

You can change those first two lines to…

“When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the negatives circumstances around me…”

We still need to keep looking up to God for…

“Though Satan should buffet
Though trials should come,
Let this blessed assurance control
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate
And has shed His own blood for my soul.”
(From “It Is Well With My Soul”)

May you not waver in believing God’s promise. In fact, let your faith grow stronger, and in this bring glory to God. May you be fully convinced that God is able to do whatever He promises. Amen (from Rom 4:20-21)


Bless the Lord, o my soul, and forget not all His benefits.
