• “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 colouring 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.” – Madame Guyon

Twenty-Fifth Day – Loyal Responses – by Francis R. Havergal

Perfect Peace

I.
LIKE a river glorious
Is God’s perfect peace.
Over all victorious
In its bright increase.
Perfect—yet it floweth
Fuller every day;
Perfect—yet it groweth
Deeper all the way.

Chorus.
Stayed upon Jehovah,
Hearts are fully blest.
Finding, as He promised.
Perfect peace and rest.

II.

Hidden in the hollow
Of His blessed hand.
Never foe can follow,
Never traitor stand.
Not a surge of worry,
Not a shade of care.
Not a blast of hurry-
Touch the spirit there.

Chorus.
Stayed upon Jehovah,
Hearts are fully blest,
Finding, as He promised.
Perfect peace and rest.

III.
Every joy or trial
Falleth from above.
Traced upon our dial
By the Sun of Love.
We may trust Him solely
All for us to do ;
They who trust Him wholly.
Find Him wholly true.

Chorus,
Stayed upon Jehovah,
Hearts are fully blest,
Finding, as He promised.
Perfect peace and rest.

  • “Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, and accept Thy will for my life. I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee to be Thine forever. Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit. Use me as Thou wilt, work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever.” – Betty Scott Stam, 20th Century Martyr
