The Way It Is...


From Charles Spurgeon's Sermon- How To Please God
(I shared the below excerpt recently but resharing it because
of its profound apparentness)
Modern Theology...takes man from what is Written to what is thought.
It does not allow the sovereign Authority of Revelation and in disallowing that
their very foundations are removed, and much of the abounding vice of this day is
the direct result of this abounding unbelief in God, this
philosophical mistrust in Infinite Wisdom

The plush hush of first light covers the earth with birth of day 
The raven tress of night is gathered up and brushed away 
Sight is regaled with beauty midst the brokenness of This; 
The ever never-changing duty to The Way It Is 

The Way It Is, is partly circumstance and part reply 
A tug of war twixt defiance and humble ‘here am I’ 
A battle between logic and obedience and trust 
Before the Soul is siphoned from time’s toll of dust-to-dust 

Arrogance and atheism result in anarchy 
The lawlessness of Godlessness, its awful tragedy 
Where, hidden in The Way It Is, trembles The Way Toward 
Where consequence of carelessness no creature can afford 

From eastward brink expands the pink proof of mercy renewed 
Love beckons us to come and drink hope’s ink with gratitude 
Where, ever in the Way It Is, founts of love and light brim 
With God’s abiding faithfulness to guide us back to Him

Deut, 31:6

Be strong and courageous. 
Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, 
for the Lord your God goes with you; 
he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
