How to Trust Godís Promises for Our Assurance and Perseverance
ďIt is WrittenóPraise the LordĒ
 

by L.R. Shelton, Jr.
 

It is stated in the Written Word of God by the Holy Spirit what every born
again child of God has in the Living Word, the Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ. This to me is the greatest assurance one will find or need in this life.
The purpose of this article that the Lord has laid upon my heart is to show
you what all believers are and have in the Lord Jesus Christ and to show you
that in Him all the promises of God are yea, and Amen, unto the glory of God
(2 Cor 1:20). I have gone over and over these blessed Scriptures thousands of
times in my Christian life and they have been precious to me: for they have
been the hidden treasures, hid in Christ for me (Col 2:3), to be my spiritual
food and drink.


I know as you pray and meditate upon these precious truths you will find
as I have, that the Lord will ďmake unto you a feast of fat things, a feast of
wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well
refinedĒ (Isa 25:6).

Let me sum all this up with these precious words: Christ is the true medicine to restore my soul. Christ is the meat and drink to refresh me. Christ is the fountain of life from which I drink to quench my thirst. Christ is the light in my darknessóthen I shall not remain in darkness. Christ is the joy in my sadnessóthen what shall overcome me? Christ is the advocate against my accuseróthen who shall lay any charge to G o d ís elect? Christ is the wisdom against my follyówho can seduce me? Christ is the righteousness against my sinówho shall condemn me? Christ is the mercy-seat against the judgment seat. Christ is the throne of grace against my condemnation. Christ is my peace and rest against an evil conscience. Christ is my victory against all mine enemiesóif God be for us who can be
against us?

Christ is my propitiation against all my trespasses. Christ is my strength against all my weaknesses. Christ is the way against my wanderingóthen who shall deceive me? Christ is the power in the midst of my infirmities. Christ is my everlasting High Priest to intercede for me.
Christ is all in allóthe Anchor of hopeóthe Flower of humility, the Rose of meeknessóthe Incense of prayeróthe Fountain of blessingóthe precious Pearl of great priceóthe Rock of my salvationóthe triumphant Conqueror of hellóthe Prince of Peaceóthe Sun of righteousnessóthe Bright and Morning Staróthe Word upholding all thingsóthe Light enlightening all thingsóthe Love sustaining all things. Again I say, Christ is all in all. Unto the lost I would say ďLook unto Christ and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for He is God, and there is none
elseĒ (Isa 45:22). Unto the child of God I would say ďLookóand keep on lookingó unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of your faithĒ (Heb 12:2).
