And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time.…
Wherever we may be called upon to go, our Lord has gone before us.
I. WE ARE ENTERING INTO DARKNESS. God is light. What does it matter what we see, or whether we see at all, if He has seen and known that the way is safe?
II. WE ARE ENTERING UPON UNCERTAINTY. But all things are fixed and ordered by God's power, and from knowledge.
III. WE ARE ENTERING UPON DIFFICULTY. God is almighty in power.
IV. WE ARE TO MEET WITH PAIN AND DEATH. God cannot die. Learn:
1. To distrust all human help and consolation.
2. To trust in Him who is so well able to do for us, and to be to us all we need.
3. To implicitly follow and confidently resign ourselves to His leadership.
