Scripture of the Day - May 23, 2012

Psalm 138:8 The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me...

David new it wasn't his own grace that perfected him, he knew his faith was not so strong that he would never waiver, he knew that his love wasn't so warm that it could never grow cold, he knew that his determination wasn't so firm that nothing could move him. He knew that it wasn't in him but in God that he would be perfected. He had confidence in the Lord alone. He depended on the Lord alone.
If we indulge in any confidence which is not grounded in Jesus Christ, our confidence is worse than a dream...a dream at least will just fade...but we will certainly perish if our confidence is based on anything else save Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. We can never be too confident when we confide in HIM alone, only when we confide in ourselves should we be concerned.
David was wise, he rested upon the Lord's work. It is the Lord who has begun the good work within us; it is HE who has carried it on; and if HE does not finish it, it never will be complete. This is our confidence, the Lord who began will perfect. He has done it all, must do it all, and will do it all. Our confidence must not be in what we have done, nor in what we have determined to do, but entirely in what the Lord will do. Our faith must be in the Rock of ages.
