“Confounded with Wonder!”

“Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound!” (Rom. 5:20) “Dear Savior, in Your sufferings I not only see the infiniteness of sin, but also the infiniteness of Your love; so that, though I have cause with myself to be angry on account of sin, I need not despair. When I look to myself and see my vileness and necessity, I am confounded with shame! But when I look to You, and see Your fullness and all-sufficiency, I am confounded with wonder!”

“Am I weak? Jesus is my strength. Am I foolish? Jesus is my wisdom! Am I wicked? Jesus is my righteousness! Am I impure? Jesus is my sanctification! Am I in bondage? Jesus is my complete redemption! Am I in misery? From Jesus tender mercy flows. Am I deceitful? Jesus is wholly truth!” ~ James Meikle, “Solitude Sweetened” 1730-1799
