"Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him. God is a refuge for us. Selah."Ps. lxii. 8.
My soul, the Holy Ghost hath marked this verse with Selah; therefore, pray observe it. You see the argument for trust, because God, that is, the Elohim, is a refuge. Yes, God the Father is a refuge, in his covenant engagements, word, oath, promises. God the Son is a refuge, in his suretyship engagements, in his perfect righteousness, in his blood-cleansing, sin-atoning death and salvation, and in all his securities of grace here, and glory hereafter. God the Holy Ghost is a refuge, in all his blessed offices, characters, and relations; by which he undertakes and fulfils all the purposes of salvation, in the glorifying of the Father and the Son, to every poor believer's joy and comfort. And wilt thou not, my soul, then trust in this glorious Elohim? Wilt thou not pour out thyself before him, and trust in him at all times, at any time, at every time? Nay, wilt thou not call upon all the people to this soul-rewarding service, and tell them of his grace and glory? "Come hither, I would say, and hearken, all ye that fear God, and I will tell you what he hath done for my soul." Oh let us magnify his name together; for he is a rock, and his work is perfect.From the POOR MAN'S MORNING AND EVENING PORTIONS.
