Augustine: God is not deceiver

Saturday, May 20, 2017
God is our refuge and strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
    and the mountains quake with their surging.
    —Psalm 46:1-3 (NIV)
    God is not a deceiver, that he should offer to support us, and then, when we lean upon Him, should slip away from us.
    ... St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430)
    See also Ps. 46:1-3,7,10; Pr. 14:26; 18:10; Ps. 62:7-8; 91:1-10; 142:5; Heb. 6:18
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, through faith, I know that I can rely on You.
