SECURITY FOR THE EXHAUSTED

 

 

 

The Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. (Exod 14:15)

 

 

In the past he said to them, “This is where security can be found. Provide security for the one

who is exhausted! This is where rest can be found.” But they refused to listen. (Isa 28:12)

Why dost thou worry thyself? What use can thy fretting serve? Thou art on board a vessel

which thou couldst not steer even if the great Captain put thee at the helm, of which thou

couldst not so much as reef a sail, yet thou worriest as if thou wert captain and helmsman. Oh,

be quiet; God is Master!

Dost thou think that all this din and hurly-burly that is abroad betokens that God has left His

throne?

 No, man, His coursers rush furiously on, and His chariot is the storm; but there is a bit

between their jaws, and He holds the reins, and guides them as He wills! Jehovah is Master

yet; believe it; peace be unto thee! be not afraid.

–C. H. Spurgeon

“Tonight, my soul, be still and sleep;

The storms are raging on God’s deep—

God’s deep, not thine; be still and sleep.

“Tonight, my soul, be still and sleep;

God’s hands shall still the tempter’s sweep—

God’s hands, not thine; be still and sleep.

“Tonight, my soul, be still and sleep;

God’s love is strong while night hours creep—

God’s love, not thine; be still and sleep.

“Tonight, my soul, be still and sleep;

God’s heaven will comfort those who weep—

God’s heaven, not thine; be still and sleep.”

I entreat you, give no place to despondency. This is a dangerous temptation—a refined, not a

gross temptation of the adversary. Melancholy contracts and withers the heart, and renders it

unfit to receive the impressions of grace. It magnifies and gives a false coloring to objects, and

thus renders your burdens too heavy to bear. God’s designs regarding you, and His methods of

bringing about these designs, are infinitely wise.

Matthew 11:28

Come unto me all ye who labour,

and are heavy laden,

and I will

give thee rest.

GOD’S WONDERFUL PLAN OF SALVATION

**********

Acts 16:30-31

”Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

And they said,

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,

and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”

**********

***

Romans 10:8-13

But what saith it?

The word is nigh thee,

even in thy mouth,

and in thy heart:

that is,

the word of faith, which we preach;

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth

the Lord Jesus,

and shalt believe in thine heart

that God hath raised Him from the dead,

thou shalt be saved.

For with the heart man believeth unto

righteousness;

and with the mouth confession is made unto

salvation.

For the scripture saith,

Whosoever

believeth on Him

shall not be ashamed.

For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek:

for the same Lord over

ALL

is rich unto

ALL

that call upon Him.

For whosoever shall CALL upon the NAME of the Lord

SHALL BE SAVED.

**********

The plan of salvation is simple.

Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ,

died for your sins and rose again from the dead.

Ask Him to forgive you of your sins.

Invite Him into your heart to be the Savior of your soul.

**********

When you’re crying yourself to sleep,

know that Jesus is lending His shoulder to you.

When you’re pushed to the ground,

know that Jesus is holding out His hands to you.

When you feel like dying,

know that Jesus died to let you live.

When you feel like no one loves you,

know that Jesus loves you more than you can imagine.
