When you feel all alone.

Rides the Heavens to Help You

There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, Who rides the heavens to help you, And in His excellency on the clouds,” – Deut. 33:26

Jeshurun is a poetic name for Israel. It means “upright one.”

Indeed, there is no one like God. He rides the heavens to help you. What rich imagery of our sovereign,personal, and active God.

They came to Him from every quarter

They came to Him from every quarter.”— Mark 1:45

People of all types came to Jesus from every direction. Their paths were different, but their center was the same.

Still true today.

I refer you to Spurgeon’s wonderful sermon, “Gathering to the centre.

The Truth Is In Jesus

“But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus,” – Eph. 4:20-21

Outside of Jesus there is no truth.

The truth is only in our Lord Jesus Christ.

My Former Conduct

“For you have heard of my former conduct in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy it.” – Gal. 1:13

Paul is the ultimate example of what God can do with a sinner.

I have enough

‘Take, I pray thee, my blessing that is brought to thee; because God hath dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough.’ And he urged him, and he took it.” – Jacob (Gen. 33:11)

Jacob has an infinite God as his portion. He had well more than enough. In the Hebrew, it reads, “I have all.”

As does anyone who trusts in the Lord. There is no fear of want through Jesus.

“Though a million men behold the sun, there is light enough for them all.” – Thomas Watson

A humble heart is His home

For thus says the high and exalted One Who lives forever, whose name is Holy, “I dwell on a high and holy place, And also with the contrite and lowly of spirit In order to revive the spirit of the lowly And to revive the heart of the contrite.” – God (Isa. 57:15)

The central truth for the comfort of God’s people is that the infinitely Great One cares even for the infinitely little.” – Charles J. Ellicott

“A humble heart is His throne.” – Thomas Watson

From the highest height (Heaven), to the lowest depth (a sinner’s heart): God is there. His gracious and glorious presence is boundless.
