Quips and Quotes
"We do not earn or merit anything by taking refuge in God. Hiding in something makes no contribution to the hiding place. All it does is show that we regard ourselves as helpless and the hiding place as a place of rescue." John Piper

The Rock Beneath the Mist



There is nothing, indeed, which God will not do for a man who dares to step out upon what seems to be mist; though as he puts down his foot he finds a rock beneath him. F. B. Meyer

The ROCK Beneath the Mist

When your love for God is put to test
And you fear the thing required, 
Look child to His promises, 
Believe Him in the fire.

Like Abraham with Issac,
When his hand had grasped the knife,
To put to death his only son
Through whom God promised life.

That father's faith held tighter to,
God's long and promised truth
That like the stars of heaven
His offspring would take root.

But now that promise seemed to die
With Issac's life required;
Though Abraham obeyed God's voice
He wondered all the while...

"Will God raise up to life again
The son of promise dear?
He cannot lie, His promise stands,
Believe and do not fear.

His son was spared, God stopped the knife,
That patriarch's faith made clear:
His love for God supreme above
All other loves so dear.

On faith he stepped, believing God
Though it seemed he stepped on vapor.
And there he found beneath that mist
A ROCK that never wavers.

So saint take heart when God requires
Your love be put to test.
You'll find when you step out on faith,
The ROCK beneath the mist.
