Wondrous grace!

 

“i will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; i will lead them in paths that they have not known: i will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will i do unto them, and not forsake them.” (isaiah 42:16)

 

When i review my life and trace the hand of the lord my god in it, should i attempt to write a book about just the things i know, by the observation of experience, about his wondrous mercy, love, and grace by which he has led me in the path he appointed for me, what a huge volume might be written! I was blind, utterly blind to my own heart, blind to the glory of god shining forth in the face of christ, blind to god’s mercy, love, and grace, blind to his holiness, blind to his justice, blind to his righteousness, and blind to his gospel. But he has made darkness light!

      before he saved me by his grace, god my savior ordered my steps, though i knew him not, despised him, and rebelled against him at every turn. He hedged up my way; and none could deliver me from the grip of his grace. And since the day of my calling, he has proven himself faithful to this object of his relentless, unceasing mercy! He has brought me a way that i knew not, and led me in paths that i could never have known, had he not done it. And, blessed be his name, he is still graciously performing the same, making darkness light, and crooked things straight before me!

      in the light of all that i read in his word, and all that i know of his goodness and mercy, of his grace and love, of his faithfulness and truth, i have every reason to believe that as it has been, so it shall be. He has promised, “these things will i do unto them, and not forsake them.” He who had mercy upon me when i asked not for it, when i did not even know i needed it, will not now take his mercy from me. He still hedges up my way; and none can rip me from the grip of his grace! — “surely goodness and mercy (blessed hounds of heaven!) Shall follow me all the days of my life; and i will dwell in the house of the lord forever!
