Joy and Strength 11/03

Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him.
Job xiii. 15.

Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.
Is. xlviii. 10.

I WILL not let Thee go; Thou Help in time of need!
Heap ill on ill,
I trust Thee still.
E’en when it seems that Thou wouldst slay indeed!
Do as Thou wilt with me,
I yet will cling to Thee;
Hide Thou Thy face, yet, Help in time of need,
I will not let Thee go.
Wolfgang C. Dessler.

YOUR afflictions are not eternal, time will end them, and so shall ye at length see the Lord’s salvation; His love sleepeth not, is still in working for you; His salvation will not tarry nor linger; and suffering for Him is the noblest cross out of heaven. Your Lord hath the choice of ten thousand other crosses, beside this, to exercise you withal; but His wisdom and His love choosed out this for you, beside them all; and take it as a choice one, and make use of it. Let the Lord absolutely have the ordering of your evils and troubles, and put them off you, by recommending your cross and your furnace to Him, who hath skill to melt His own metal, and knoweth well what to do with His furnace.”
Samuel Rutherford.
