The Solid Rock

November 1, 2019

“When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.”

– Edward Mote (1797-1874)

My Security

April 1, 2019

“Jesus Christ is not my security against the storms of life, but he is my perfect security in the storms. He has never promised me an easy passage, only a safe landing.”

The Storm

December 5, 2009

“It is quite easy for us to talk and to theorize about faith, but God often puts us in His crucible of affliction to test the purity of our gold and to separate the dross from the metal. How happy we are if the hurricanes that blow across life’s raging sea have the effect of making Jesus more precious to us! It is better to weather the storm with Christ than to sail smooth waters without Him.”

– J.R. Macduff, Streams in the Desert
