I need just such a friend
(William S. Plumer)
Jesus knows all my wants and weaknesses; all
my sin and misery. He knows the malice of my
enemies, and the foolishness of my heart. He has
power to subdue my whole nature to Himself, and
to defeat the wiles and machinations of my foes.
His grace is all-sufficient.
His love is infinite.
His wisdom cannot be defeated.
His power cannot be resisted.
He has all power and strength–and I am very weak. He
has all the knowledge to understand my whole case, and
all the wisdom necessary to direct everything concerning
me. He makes no mistakes. He is never deceived. He is never
outsmarted. He knows all things. He knows my weaknesses.
He knows my sorrows. He knows my heart. His wisdom never
fails. He is never confounded or perplexed. He has as much
mercy and kindness as I need. His loving-kindness is so
great that we cannot fathom its top or the bottom–the
length or the breadth of it. The ocean of the Divine
love is boundless and inexhaustible! It is infinite!
I have no sorrow to which He is a stranger.
He sympathizes with me in all my sufferings
I need just such a friend.
“Let us then approach the throne of grace with
confidence, so that we may receive mercy and
find grace to help us in our time of need.”
