It's a good day to remember...

Jehovah Jirah - The Lord will Provide
The saints should never be dismay'd,
Nor sink in hopeless fear;
For when they least expect His aid,
The Saviour will appear.
This Abraham found:  he raised the knife;
God saw, and said, "Forebear!
Yon ram shall give his meaner life;
Behold the victim there."
Once David seemed Saul's certain prey;
But hark! The  foe's at hand;
Saul turns his arms another way,
To save the invaded land.
When Jonah sunk beneath the wave,
He thought to rise no more:
But God prepared a fish to save,
And bear him to the shore.
Blessed proofs of power and grace divine,
That meet us in His word!
May every deep-felt care of mine
Be trusted with the Lord.
Wait for His seasonable aid,
And though it tarry, wait:
The promise may be long delay'd,
But cannot come too late.
-William Cowper
God's Providence is not only present on the mountain top but in the depth of the valley as well. Abraham, David, and Jonah  were each fallen and faithful. God is not God because I have faith in Him, although, I desire to trust Him  faithfully.  God is God. It is HE who spoke I AM.
