Passage: Job 13:15

“My Refuge, Until These Calamities Be Overpast”

Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast

(PSALM 57:1)

There is no trusting in God, till all creature refuge fails; and to this spot all must come who are brought to trust in Him. Now, such persons as these are rare to be found; there are not many to be seen thus trusting in God; they are very scarce, only one here and there, like a few berries on the top of a tree: for while there is a great deal of talk about trusting in God, it is only a few, when brought like Job to be stripped of everything, can say, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him!” (JOB 13:15). ‘If He slay me, He does it righteously; and if He save me, it is all of grace!’ None but the Lord can do this. But when a righteous soul is brought here, he is made to know there is no other refuge but Jesus, and he casts himself alone upon Him, whether he sinks or swims. [AMEN!]
