March 4 Today’s Reading: — Deuteronomy 28-29
“That thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD.”
If God, in his great mercy, has caused this volume to meet the eye of a poor, trembling soul, under a sense of his just wrath, may he cause the reading of Deuteronomy 28 to sound as an alarm in your soul. God’s judgments are as sure as they are righteous. Yet, God the faithful God, as he has sworn that he will perform his wrath, has also promised mercy to every sinner who seeks his mercy by faith in Christ. May God the Holy Spirit open your eye, convince your heart, awaken your soul, and cause you now to flee from the wrath to come. Flee to Christ! Look to him, and live!
Poor sinner, seek His grace,
Whose wrath you cannot bear;
Fly to the shelter of His cross,
And find salvation there!
Reading today about God’s great, righteous, and just judgments upon disobedient Israel, endear, my heart swells with increasing love, adoration, gratitude, and praise to God who, punishing his own dear Son in my stead now says to every believing sinner, “Fury is not in me!” O Blessed Redeemer, my dear Savior, thank you for redeeming me with your blood, saving me by your grace, clothing me with your righteousness, and forgiving me of all my sin! Eternal praises are your due!
Behold, my soul, God in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing our trespasses unto them. Every blessing of God, for time and to all eternity flows freely to sinners through Immanuel’s precious blood. — “Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift!”
Secret and Revealed
Happy we are to know that “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God.” Those things he has not revealed in his Word, in his Son, and by his Spirit to our souls, we gladly leave to him. We will not attempt to pry into secret things. But never allow anyone to make you think eternal election, covenant grace, and sovereign predestination are secret things! These are things clearly revealed in the Book of God (Romans 8:28-20; 9:13-23; Ephesians 1:3-14; 2 Timothy 1:9-10). In these things every believer rejoices! Loved with an everlasting love, we live day by day in the comfortable assurance that he who loved us freely from everlasting will love us free unto the end and to everlasting!
