He Calls You by Name

I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

ISAIAH 14:3


GOD! Thou art Love! I build my faith on that!

I know Thee, Thou hast kept my path and made

Light for me in the darkness--tempering sorrow,

So that it reached me like a solemn joy:

It were too strange that I should doubt Thy love.

ROBERT BROWNING


IF I believe in God, in a Being who made me, and fashioned me, and knows my wants and capacities and necessities, because He gave them to me, and who is perfectly good and loving, righteous, and perfectly wise and powerful,--whatever my circumstances in­ward or outward may be, however thick the darkness which encompasses me, I yet can trust, yea, be assured, that all will be well, that He can draw light out of darkness, and make crooked things straight.

THOMAS ERSKINE


Though sorrows, heaviness, and faintings of heart ever so much increase; yet, if thy faith increase also, it will bear thee up in the midst of them. I would fain have it go well with thee, and that thou mightest not want the holy Counsellor and Adviser, in any strait or difficulty which the wise and tender God orders to befall thee.
