「主對他所說的話,都要應驗。」(聖經路加福音一章 45 節)
「到了時候,這話必然應驗。」(聖經路加福音一章 20 節)

 

  亨利馬太Henry Mathew說:「當我們四面的出路都被封了起來,對於神的應允發生了疑問的時候,就該想神的應允,是不能不應驗的。因為「神的應允,不論有多少,在基督都是【是的】。所以藉著祂也都是實在的,叫神因我們得榮耀」(聖經哥林多後書 一章 20 節)。」 ──

 

  神的永久信實使聖經中的應允「又寶貴、又極大」(聖經彼得後書一章 4 節)人的應允常是一無價值的,很多毀約使人 心碎;但是自從創世以來,從來沒有向祂的孩子失過一次信──

  **********************************

"There shall be a performance." (Luke 1:45.)

"My words shall be fulfilled in their season" (their fixed appointed time). (Greek, Luke 1:20.)

Matthew Henry says: "We must depend upon the performance of the promise, when all the ways leading up to it are shut up. For all the promises of God in him are yea (yes), and in him Amen (so be it), unto the glory of God by us."'(2 Cor. 1:20.)

 

There shall be a performance of those things That loving heart hath waited long to see; Those words shall be fulfilled to which she clings, Because her God hath promised faithfully; And, knowing Him, she ne'er can doubt His Word; "He speaks and it is done." The mighty Lord!

There shall be a performance of those things, O burdened heart, rest ever in His care; In quietness beneath His shadowing wings Await the answer to thy longing prayer. When thou hast "cast thy care," the heart then sings, There shall be a performance of those things.

There shall be a performance of those things, O tired heart, believe and wait and pray; At eventide the peaceful vesper rings, Though cloud and rain and storm have filled the day. Faith pierces through the mist of doubt that bars The coming night sometimes, and finds the stars.

There shall be a performance of those things, O trusting heart, the Lord to thee hath told; Let Faith and Hope arise, and plume their wings, And soar towards the sunrise clouds of gold; The portals of the rosy swing wide, Revealing joys the darkening night did hide. ─Bessie Porter.
