gwot.rocks - God, the World, and Other Things!
Hold on to Your Heart Part 2
When Providence frowns upon us, and blasts our outward comforts, then we need to look to our heart to keep it with all diligence from expressing discontent against God, or fainting under his hand ; for troubles, though sanctified, are still troubles. Though God has reserved to himself a right of afflicting his people, he has tied up his own hands by promise never to take away his loving kindness from us. The conditions of our lives can change, but we can find the strength to diligently keep our hearts because our Father’s love does not change. God is at work constantly saving us from those things in life that have ruined thousands of souls! Rather than see the trials of life under the hand of God as punishment, see them as the protection of God at work keeping our Heart. It can be encouraging to our hearts under the weight of adversity, to consider that God, by such humbling providences may be accomplishing that for which we have long prayed and waited. We can keep our hearts when we see the design of God performing his perfecting work in us through our troubles!
