The Everlasting Arms

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.
(Deuteronomy 33:27)

On
May 7, 1710, the great Bible scholar Matthew Henry preached a sermon entitled "The Everlasting Arms." It was the final message in a three-and-a-half-year series of sermons on the subject of the Promises of God.
 
To Matthew Henry, God's promises were His everlasting arms. They support us, bear us, carry us, and we can never exhaust them. "They are a foundation of our faith, and we have them as such," said Henry. "On these we are to build all our expectations from God; and in all temptations and trials we have them to rest our souls upon. . . . We have them as the means by which the grace of God works for our holiness and comfort, for by these we are made partakers of a divine nature."
 
When trouble comes, we have a refuge that we can run to. The Everlasting Arms, which are represented by the promises of God, will provide the shelter we require, regardless of the circumstances.

If you're in a storm today, find a precious promise, fix your thoughts upon it, and discover afresh that your eternal God is your refuge.

What have I to dread, what have I to fear, leaning on the everlasting arms; I have blessed peace with my Lord so near, leaning on the everlasting arms.
