To the Christian who realizes something of the awfulness of sin before a holy God, and how we were spiritually “dead in trespasses and sins,” there is nothing for which we thank God more than for the knowledge that “Thou hast cast all my sins behind Thy back.” When man forgives man, he excuses the penalty; when God forgives, He executes the penalty. This He did, when “Christ … suffered for sins, the Just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God.” The believer’s sins, with the condemnation that went with them, are gone forever. “As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us,” and He says that “I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.” “Thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea,” “for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” Dear believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, rejoice in sins forgiven forever, and in Him who said that “I, even I, am He that blotteth out thy transgressions … and will not remember thy sins.”
“Blessed … he … whose sin is covered,”
And by “the precious blood of Christ,”
Who put away sin forever,
Payment is not demanded twice.

“The Lord is in His holy temple, the Lord’s throne is in heaven: His eyes behold, His eyelids try, the children of men,” and “though the Lord be high, yet hath He respect unto the lowly: but the proud He knoweth afar off.” “For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones,” for “surely He scorneth the scorners: but He giveth grace unto the lowly.” It is written of Manasseh that “when he was in affliction, he besought the Lord his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers, and prayed unto Him: and He was entreated of him, and heard his supplication.” “The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit,” for “the sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise.” He says that “to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at My word.”
“The Lord our God … dwelleth on high”;
His throne is in the glory;
“His eyes behold the things … in … earth”;
He regards man’s sad story.

“God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved),” and “how shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation?” But, knowing Him as Saviour, “we have a great High Priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God,” “that great Shepherd of the sheep,” who “is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in working.” “O Lord, how great are Thy works! and Thy thoughts are very deep.” “How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!” “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out!” “Great things doeth He, which we cannot comprehend,” “which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.” “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.”
A gracious God and a Saviour
Is our Lord to all His own,
Providing and guiding daily,
Until we are safely home.

God’s Word tells us that God is always faithful, and our Lord’s promise to His own is “lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.” Therefore there are certain things which we who know Him are to do always, at all times, regularly. “He spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint.” “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.” Moreover, we are to “rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice,” even when “sorrowful, yet always rejoicing,” and “always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.” We are to be “giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,” and to “be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.” And “let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man,” and “be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord.”
Always faithful is the Lord
To all who trust His grace;
May we always seek His will,
Until we see His face.

The last phrase of the above verse poses a question: “From whence cometh my help?” This question is immediately answered: “My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber.” How often God’s children have proven this, that “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” And how very often we need His help. “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” “For He shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.” “Hitherto hath the Lord helped us,” and “because Thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of Thy wings will I rejoice.” “Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence. When I said, My foot slippeth; Thy mercy, O Lord, held me up.” “Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.” “Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.”
The Lord is near when we need Him,
To answer our faintest cry,
Delighting to help and succor
Those who on Him rely.

“Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind.” “Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.” These warnings to God’s people have to do with our rewards, not with our salvation. Concerning our salvation, our Lord said that “I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand. My Father, which gave them Me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of My Father’s hand.” But when the Lord Jesus comes for His own, perhaps today, we believers “must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad,” and our Lord has said that “whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in My name, because ye belong to Christ … he shall not lose his reward.” “So run, that ye may obtain,” when “every one of us shall give account of himself to God.”
The Lord says, “I come quickly,”
“And My reward is with Me,”
“To give every man” his wages,
“According as” it shall be.

“Those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts.” God wants His redeemed children to have the right kind of thoughts, and He has told us to “let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.” This is already positionally true of God’s own, for “we have the mind of Christ,” but God desires us in daily experience to “let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus,” “bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ,” for it is written of man that “as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” So, “commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.” Can we truthfully say to the Lord, “I hate vain thoughts: but Thy law do I love”? “The Lord knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.” “The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.” “In the multitude of my thoughts within me Thy comforts delight my soul.”
From my thoughts come my actions;
Shape them, Lord, by Thy Word,
That Christ my Lord and Saviour
May in me be seen and heard.

Those who are truly wise, with “the wisdom that is from above [which] is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy,” those who have such wisdom do not need to advertise the fact. “A prudent man concealeth knowledge”; he is “swift to hear, slow to speak.” “A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels.” This wisdom and knowledge which is commended by God is not earthly wisdom, “for the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God,” and “let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.” True “wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding: but that which is in the midst of fools is made known.” Such “wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath” it; he does not need to call attention to it. For “he that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit,” “that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.”
“If any of you lack wisdom,
Let him ask of God” above;
He “giveth to all men” freely,
Both wisdom and grace, with love.

The statement above is both searching and comforting, depending upon our relationship to the Lord, and our yieldedness to Him and His will. “His eyes are upon the ways of man, and He seeth all his goings,” and “the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and He pondereth all his goings.” Job, in the midst of terrible suffering, and misunderstood by his friends, comforted himself by asking, “Doth not He see my ways, and count all my steps?” Indeed He does this, “neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.” For “the Lord looketh from heaven; He beholdeth all the sons of men,” and “the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect [full] toward Him,” and He says also that “Mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from My face, neither is their iniquity hid from Mine eyes.” “Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for Thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men, to give every one according to his ways.” “Thou God seest me.”
“The Lord looked down from heaven,
Upon the children of men,”
To help all those who trust Him,
And also to deal with sin.

It is when we are “in distress,” in tight places, and narrow, and receive such circumstances rightly, and as from the Lord’s hand, that we are enlarged spiritually. For while “no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless, afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.” “I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.” So when distress and trouble come, let us ask the Lord for a right attitude toward it, and for spiritual enlargement, that it might increase our Christ-likeness. Then we can say with the psalmist, “He brought me forth also into a large place; He delivered me, because He delighted in me.” “I will be glad and rejoice in Thy mercy: for Thou hast considered my trouble; Thou hast known my soul in adversities; and hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: Thou hast set my feet in a large room.” “Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.” “I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place.”
In my distress I sought Him;
He gave me grace to endure,
Using the things that hurt me,
To make my life more pure.
Psalm 4:1 ~ Hebrews 12:11 ~ Ecclesiastes 3:10 ~ Psalm 18:19 ~ Psalm 31:7‑8 ~ Psalm 18:36 ~ Psalm 118:5
