“And he said unto them, I am an hundred and twenty years old this day; I can no more go out and come in: also the Lord hath said unto me, Thou shalt not go over this Jordan.” Deuteronomy 31:2
There can be no testimony better deserving my credit, or more calculated to impress my soul — than the testimony of the veteran soldier and saint.
It speaks of God’s enduring faithfulness. How every inspiriting promise that He made years before to the young disciple, every assurance of mercy and help that He gave, every provision for the long journey and the weary campaign that He pledged Himself to communicate — He has more than fulfilled and bestowed.
It speaks of God’s invincible wisdom. How no device of the enemy could outwit Him, and no emergency could find Him unprepared, and no sudden and urgent call upon His guiding hand went unanswered, and no necessity of His child had not its seasonable and sufficient support from the Father’s arm and the Father’s heart.
It speaks of God’s triumphant power. How all the craft of the adversary was baffled by Him; How His little one, confronted by “the ancient Prince of Hell,” discovered that the Lord Sabaoth’s Son was fighting on his behalf and making him a conqueror; How, here and here, He put to flight the armies of the aliens.
It speaks of God’s over-overcoming love. How He has turned darkness into light for the lowly heart; has disappointed all its fears; has answered all its prayers; has led it forth by the right way; has borne it up, year after year, in His everlasting arms.
