This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
I will not fail thee nor forsake thee, — Be strong and of good courage; be not affrighted, neither be thou dismayed: for Jehovah thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. Josh, i: 5, 9Yea, once Immanuel's orphan cry his universe hath shaken; It went up single, echoless, " My God, I am forsaken."
It went up from the Holy's lips, amid His lost creation, That of the lost no son should use those words of desolation. — Elizabeth Barrett Browning. QOTHI G is more certain than that God will never forsake his people. Jesus affirms that not a sparrow falls to the ground without His Father's notice^ he also assured us that the hairs of our head are all numbered. The old Scotch woman was right when she said that if God forsook her, it would be worse for him than for her, as he would violate his covenant and promise. Marvelous are the words in Hebrews, thirteenth chapter, and the latter part of the fifth verse: " o, I will not leave thee; no, no, I will not forsake thee." We have here five negatives in the Greek, the multiplication of negatives adding
emphasis to the thought expressed. Many times this precious promise is repeated in various parts of Scripture. Riches may take wings and fly away; friends may desert us; health and strength may fail; reason, judgment, and memory may be weakened or destroyed, but God will never leave nor forsake us.
My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken me? Why art Thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my groaning? O my God, I cry in the day time, but Thou answerest not; and in the night season, and am not silent. Amen. Ps. 22: i, 2.
252 ROYAL MESSAGES 9-8 Should not I have regard for ineveh, that great city? Jonah 4: II. Even here do I behold Thy steps Almighty, here amidst the crowd, Through the vast city rolled, With everlasting murmur deep and loud — Choking the ways that wind 'Mongst the proud piles, the work of human kind. And when the hours of rest Come, like a calm upon the mid-sea brine. Hushing its billowy breast — The quiet of that moment too is thine. It breathes of Him who keeps The vast and helpless city while it sleeps. — William Cullen Bryant.
HET us emphasize the presence and power of God, not only in natural phenomena, but in all the providential events of to-day. He would be a rash man who should affirm that God is not now holding back judgments from our cities because of the prayers of His servants. It is a most suggestive thing that Abraham prayed for Sodom, and that God listened to his prayers. One's heart is moved as he sees the servant of God holding converse with Him and appealing to God's glory as a motive for God's manifestation of power. Perhaps the richest blessings which come to us in our modern life, come in answer to the prayers of God's people. We never know through what channels many of our choicest blessings are brought. God has ten thousand ministries through which He can give His benediction to His people.
My Lord, behold! now. Thy servant hath found favor in Thy sight, and Thou hast magnified Thy loving-kindness, which Thou hast showed unto me in saving my life. Amen. Gen, 19: 19.
