Who Do You Trust?

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

JOB 13:15


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

ISAIAH 48:10


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.
