God, our Confidence





Ah, Christian, know your resource.
Hear your God saying,
“Call upon me in the day of trouble:
I will deliver thee: and thou shalt glo­rify me.”
Make use of him as your “hiding-place,”
your “resting-place,”
your “dwelling-place.”
Beware in your distress of crooked policy,
of unlawful means of relief,
of impatience,
of dejection.
By nothing can you so much please God
as by your confidence in him;
and by nothing can you so recommend your religion
as by showing the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
keeping your heart and mind through Jesus Christ.
Check therefore every tendency not only to murmur­ing,
but to despondency;
and after the example of your model this evening, say,
“What time I am afraid I will trust in thee.”
“Why art thou cast down, 0 my soul?
and why art thou disquieted within me?
Hope thou in God:
for I shall yet praise him,
who is the health of my countenance,
and my God.”


Rev. Wm. Jay
