What a Friend We Have in Jesus

Oh the glorious truth of it! Jesus is our faithful and true Friend. He is our “Brother born for adversity” (Proverbs 17:17). He is the great King and God and Creator, and yet He is desirous to be our Friend! Earthly friends will fail us, and do. We fail our own friends. Because of unfaithfulness on the part of the children of men, true friends are hard to come by and will all eventually fail. But Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, the One who purchased our pardon at Calvary, will be your Friend if you will trust in Him.

So often we forget about all that we have in Christ and that we are blessed beyond measure in Him in whom we are complete. We who have received the Lord Jesus into our hearts are the children of the One who owns the cattle on a thousand hills, who declares: “the world is Mine.” He owns the universe and has promised to give us all things, and yet we usually live in poverty—spiritual poverty.

The biblical command in Philippians 4 is that we should let our moderation be known unto all men, showing that the Lord is at hand. He is near and ready to deliver, but He awaits our call for that deliverance. God reigns in heaven looking down upon us, desirous every moment to show Himself strong on our behalf, but we, in our shortsightedness and faithlessness and carefulness, will not come unto Him that we might have life and deliverance from all of our afflictions and troubles: “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivereth Him out of them all” (Psalm 34:19).

What a Friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear! · What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer! · O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear, · All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.

Whate’er My God Ordains Is Right

~Samuel Rodigast~

Whate’er my God ordains is right:
Holy His will abideth;
I will be still whate’er He doth;
And follow where He guideth:
He is my God: though dark my road,
He holds me that I shall not fall:
Wherefore to Him I leave it all.

Whate’er my God ordains is right:
He never will deceive me;
He leads me by the proper path;
I know He will not leave me:
I take, content, what He hath sent;
His hand can turn my griefs away,
And patiently I wait His day.

Whate’er my God ordains is right:
Though now this cup, in drinking,
May bitter seem to my faint heart,
I take it, all unshrinking:
My God is true; each morn anew
Sweet comfort yet shall fill my heart,
And pain and sorrow shall depart.

Whate’er my God ordains is right:
Here shall my stand be taken;
Though sorrow, need, or death be mine,
Yet am I not forsaken;
My Father’s care is round me there;
He holds me that I shall not fall:
And so to Him I leave it all.
