It is well that God’s children heed the warnings which the Word of God puts before us, for His Word not only encourages, it also reproves and convicts the heart of the believer in Christ. “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” Therefore we are to both practice and proclaim the Word. “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and doctrine.” “Concerning the works of men, by the word of Thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.” “Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.” So “I will meditate in Thy precepts, and have respect unto Thy ways,” for “Thy testimonies also are my delight, and my counselors,” and “I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep Thy word.” “I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto Thy testimonies. I made haste, and delayed not to keep Thy commandments.”
Thy Word gives warning on my path
Of dangers I do not know,
Of Satan’s traps, and worldly lusts
That would snare me as I go.

“The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: Thou maintainest my lot. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.” How full is the Lord’s cup of blessing to His own! “He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” “For all things are yours; whether … the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; and ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s,” “and of His fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.” “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.” “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ,” “according as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue,” “according to the working of His mighty power, which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places.” “My cup runneth over.”
Blessed by His grace beyond compare,
For the sake of Christ our Lord,
Who ever lives for us above,
And blesses us through His Word.

Although the above words are spoken of “the workers of iniquity,” think of the blessings which the redeemed children of God have missed because “they have not called upon God.” The Lord tells us that “the prayer of the upright is His delight.” “It is good for me to draw near to God” in prayer, and our Lord said “that men ought always to pray, and not to faint.” Prayer is not only God’s appointed means for us to obtain our needs; it also brings us into deep fellowship with the Lord. “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh; and having a High Priest over the house of God; let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water,” that is, cleansed by the work of Christ, for “if I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.” What are you missing in your life, dear reader, because you “have not called upon God”? “Ye have not, because ye ask not.” He says to “call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify Me.”
He asks us to come unto Him,
With all the needs of our lives,
To praise, and ask, and worship,
For all the grace that He gives.

A “whisperer” is one who in stealthy and secretive ways spreads unkind rumors about the character or the actions of another. Today we call it “gossip,” but God’s Word calls a “gossip” a “talebearer.” Such a person goes about as a scandal-monger and “separateth chief friends” and, like certain widows spoken of by Paul, become “tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.” God warns His children to flee from such conduct, from “debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults,” for “the words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.” So “thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people,” for “a talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.” The Lord says that He hates “a false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.” “He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.” “Let none of you suffer … as a busybody in other men’s matters.” “Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.”
Words that are uttered in secret
About those we want to harm,
When viewed in the light of God’s Word,
Are cause for shame and alarm.

“He is faithful that promised” that “if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” To be living in the constant expectation of His return, to remember that it is a daily possibility, will serve to mold the Christian’s character and service, to the end “He may stablish your hearts unblamable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.” After He comes for us and we stand before the judgment seat of Christ for our rewards, there will be “the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints” back to this earth. Now, therefore, “the grace of God” is “teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ.” “Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of Him in peace, without spot, and blameless.”
Soon we shall go to meet the Lord;
Perhaps He shall come today,
To call us home to His glory,
Who’ve trusted Him as the way.

For His own who are oppressed, who are crushed and afflicted under the weight of trials and burdens and failure, “the Lord … will be a refuge,” a defense, a strong tower into which we may flee for protection and succor. “In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Trust in Him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before Him: God is a refuge for us.” “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear.” With David, “when he fled from Saul in the cave,” we can pray, “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,” “for Thou hast been my defense and refuge in the day of trouble.” “The Lord is my defense; and my God is the rock of my refuge,” and “I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.” “O Lord, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction.” “In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence: and His children shall have a place of refuge.”
The Lord’s a refuge for His saints,
A tower to which we flee;
Kept safe by His love and power,
“More than conquerors” are we.

To be “forbearing” means to be “putting up with,” and here we who know the Lord are told to be “putting up with one another,” and that “with all lowliness and meekness, with long-suffering.” One who is orderly and systematized in his work and with his time must be “putting up with” one who is careless and unorganized. The neat one must be “forbearing” to the untidy one, the quiet one to the talkative one. “Every one of us shall give account of himself to God,” and we are not to try to fit everyone else into our own mold. “We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves,” and to “bear … one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” We are to suffer one another, endure one another, bear with one another, “forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.” “Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”
We can see the faults of others,
But our own we do not see;
Let us then take heed to ourselves,
That we long-suffering be.

How gracious is the Lord to hide and cover and protect His own from dangers seen and unseen. “The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The Lord is good to all: and His tender mercies are over all His works.” “A Man [the God-Man, our Lord Jesus Christ] shall be as a hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.” Thus He hides us and protects us, and though “we are troubled on every side, yet [we are] not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.” “For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion: in the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me up upon a rock.” “Oh how great is Thy goodness, which Thou hast laid up for them that fear Thee; which Thou hast wrought for them that trust in Thee before the sons of men! Thou shalt hide them in the secret of Thy presence from the pride of man: Thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.” “I flee unto Thee to hide me.”
He hides His own from troubles,
From dangers we do not know,
From the onslaughts of Satan,
All because He loves us so.

“Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?” How easy it is to let “the fear of man” influence our life and actions. “Do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.” We are called as believers to “speak, not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts. For neither at any time used we flattering words … nor of men sought we glory.” “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.” “Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man,” and “when the Lord shall stretch out His hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is helped shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.” “Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God.” “Thus saith the Lord, Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm. … Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.”
Man’s strength cannot prevail for us;
The Lord alone can aid;
His help is for the trusting heart,
Whose cry to Him is made.

How comforting to the Christian is the knowledge that our God is sovereign and “worketh all things after the counsel of His own will,” “saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure.” For “there is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the Lord,” “for the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and His hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?” He says that “there is none that can deliver out of My hand: I will work, and who shall let it?” “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” “The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?” “Take counsel together, and it shall come to naught; speak the word, and it shall not stand: for God is with us.” With Jehoshaphat we can say, “Art not Thou God in heaven, and rulest not Thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in Thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand Thee?” “The counsel of the Lord standeth forever, the thoughts of His heart to all generations.” And “this God is our God forever and ever.”
God’s ways are always perfect,
And His Word, it shall stand;
He guards His own in trouble,
When Satan doth withstand.
