God’s Answer to Skepticism   1 comment

Ps. 4, 6

1.  This question [is] that of unhappy men.  Not finding the good, they decide there is none.

Men seek happiness, or good:

(a)  in wealth,

(b)  pleasure, or

(c)  education.

Finding it not, they question if there be any good, then become confident there is none.

2.  Their state proves only one thing, viz:  this world cannot supply happiness for the heart.  How pitiable their state!  Shut up to their fate, by their unbelief!  Truth is eternal, but men must believe it, to be blest thereby.  Men, not the truth, are affected by unbelief.

3.  But the Christian knows the remedy for all this–the blessing of the Lord, the light of His countenance.  He can satisfy the soul’s every aspiration.

4.  Unbelief needs to witness displays of divine grace.  Skepticism blushes when God answers by fire.  We need a revival to save men from unbelief.

And we may have it in answer to prayer, faith & work.
