God Is Here


The day is yours, and yours also the night;
you established the sun and moon.
- Psalm 74:16 -

The Lord does not abdicate His throne when the sun goes down, nor does He leave the world during the long winter nights.

This is very sweet indeed.

The nights of affliction are under the arrangement and control of the Lord of Love. So are the bright summer days when all is bliss.

The Lord Jesus Christ is in the tempest.

From the first watch of the night to the break of day, the Lord God observes His saints for their highest good.

Gloomy seasons of religious indifference and social sin are not exempted from the divine purpose.

When the altars of truth are defiled, and the ways of God forsaken, the Lord's servants weep with bitter sorrow. But they may not despair, for the darkest eras are governed by the Lord, and shall come to their end at His bidding.

What may seem defeat to us may be victory to Him.

Since the Lord Himself is here, we must not fear.
