How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word!
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
You, who unto Jesus for refuge have fled?
When through fiery trials thy pathways shall lie,
My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply;
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.
The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose,
I will not, I will not desert to its foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.
Dear Ladies Of Lighthouse,
GLORY! That is the best one syllable word I can use to describe our Sunday morning Bible Study as we plumb the depths of Daniel for golden nuggets of truth. The gold we are now finding is the one purified by refining fires. Have you ever had a trial or burden? Are you in a trouble or tribulation? Come and join as we study the example of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego in the fires of trials, persecution and testing. If they had bowed their hearts to anything other than the Lord, they would have avoided the fire…but they would not have seen God…and we would not have their example. What a wonderful reminder to me that if I bow to a temptation in order to avoid the trial, I will never know the richness of having God with me and I will miss an opportunity to showcase the reality and sufficiency of my Lord.
Another exciting opportunity for you is the new series that Brother Joey will begin this Wednesday, April 25, Living In The Word, at 6:30 pm. He will teach the “how” of studying the Bible, giving us practical tools to use.
Please take the time to sign up for e-mail notification of all blog updates, as this will soon be the primary source of communication for The Ladies Of Lighthouse.
