“Above all else, guard your heart, for it
is the wellspring of life!” Proverbs 4:23

See that your chief study is about your heart:
that there, God’s image is planted;
that there, His interests are advanced;
that there, the world and flesh are subdued;
that there, the love of every sin is cast out;
that there, the love of holiness grows.

“I, the Lord, search the heart and examine
the mind!” Jeremiah 17:10

The slippery paths of a tempted, tried and afflicted believer

Posted by on Aug 12, 2009 in Grace Gems | 0 comments

The past couple of days have been really rough for my friends and me.  There has been a lot of trials, pain, and sorrow.  Last night, right after the apex of everything so far, I received an email from Grace Gems that just absolutely blew me away.  It was truly a testament to God’s Sovereignty over everything.  He was gracious enough to have Grace Gems send out the most profound email, and at the most perfect time.  Grace Gems daily gem for today is from Charles Haddon Spurgeon, whom is one of my most favorite historical preacher, titled “The slippery paths of a tempted, tried, and afflicted believer.”  Here it is, I hope God uses it in your life as He has for me.

“He will not allow your foot to be moved. He who keeps you will not slumber.” Psalm 121:3

This is a choice stanza for pilgrims to the celestial city.

“He will not allow your foot to be moved.” Though the paths of life are dangerous and difficult–yet we shall stand fast, for Jehovah will not permit our feet to slide; and if He will not allow it–we shall never be moved! If our foot will is thus kept–we may be sure that our head and heart will be preserved also! Those who have God for their keeper–shall be safe from all the perils of the way.

Among the hills and ravines of Palestine, the keeping of the feet is a great mercy. But in the slippery paths of a tempted, tried and afflicted believer, the blessing of upholding is of priceless value–for a single false step might cause us a fall fraught with awful danger! To stand ‘steadfast’ and pursue our holy way–is a blessing which only God can give. It is worthy of His divine hand–and worthy also of our perennial gratitude. Our feet shall move in heavenly progress–and we shall never be overthrown!

“He who keeps you will not slumber.” We could not stand a moment–if our Divine Keeper were to sleep! We need Him by day and by night. Not a single step can be safely taken–except under His guardian eye. God is the convoy and body-guard of His people. When dangers are all around us–we are safe, for our Preserver is awake, and will not permit us to be moved. No fatigue of exhaustion can cast our God into sleep–His watchful eyes are never closed!

Praise God, for He and He alone is Sovereign!  His steadfast love endures forever.
