"Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life." Psalm 42:8
The apostle Paul said, "For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's." (Rom 14:8) What a great comfort such a thought is to the true children of GOD! That man who has been indwelt by the SPIRIT of GOD has only a secondary interest in this world even though he must occupy that place which the LORD has given him until such time as his course is finished and the LORD sees fit to bring him to his long home. (see Eccl.12:5) GOD shall be with HIS people in the time of their death just as surely as HE will be with them in the life which they now live. (see Ps.116:15) If that is true then it is also true that no matter “what gloomy lines are writ for me, or what bright scenes may rise” (Isaac Watts) the LORD has purposed them all for the good of HIS own sons and daughters.
