Comfort for Christians
From Timeless Grace Gems
31 Day Devotional By James Smith, 1850s



        A Closing Question

        "What will you do in the day of visitation?" Isaiah 10:3

        Troubles, trials, and afflictions are the lot of all; none can finally escape them. It befits every one, therefore, to be prepared for them. We may soon, we may suddenly be visited with sickness, bereavement, or death; therefore the Lord kindly asks us what we intend to do when they come.

        Reader, what will you do when they come? Will you bear them with fortitude and patience? Will you look to the Lord for wisdom and strength to enable you to triumph over them? Will you have Jesus to . . .
          sympathize with you in them,
          support you under them, and
          bring you through them?
        Or will you be left to grapple with them in your own strength?

        Few sights are more painful, than to see a sinner, without a hope in Jesus, without peace with God, without a prospect of glory sinking into floods of deep affliction!

        Reader, will this be your case? Is there the least probability of it? If so, let me most earnestly and affectionately beseech you now . . .
        before the day of visitation comes,
        before the storm falls,
        before the tempest bursts upon you
          to seek and find refuge in Jesus! Make personal piety your great object. Seek pardon and peace through Jesus without delay. Set your heart upon union to Christ, and never rest until you enjoy it: it may be realized, and it may be realized by you. In Christ, deriving strength from Christ, and enjoying communion with Christ you will be prepared for the day of visitation, whether that visitation be temporal losses, soul conflicts, domestic troubles, or even death itself!

        Seek, oh seek, then, a saving interest in Christ. Rest not until you know that Christ is yours, and that you are entitled to all the promises of His grace. And then, if asked, "What will you do in the day of visitation?" you will be able to say, "I will trust in Jesus!"

        God be merciful to me a sinner! I need Your presence in my heart to be able to weather the storms of life in victory. Lead me to Yourself and make me wholly Yours!

        "If it is hard for the righteous to be saved then what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?" 1 Peter 4:18
