“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:22-23 NIV)
“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31 NIV)
This is part of the song written by Horatio Spafford.
“Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come
Let this blest assurance control
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate
And has shed His own blood for my soul.
It is well
With my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul.”
This is a beautiful song. It was written after a personal tragedy in his life. It’s an interesting story, look it up.
How many can say it is well with your soul? I can. Even though satan tries to derail me by throwing trials my way, Jesus will intercept them. He will intercede for us.
I found this interesting. While researching this, I came across The Berean Test- Analyzing lyrics in Jesus’ name. It breaks down the song and gives scriptures to back it up. It is a God inspired song for sure. I can’t imagine, being on a ship bound for England after hearing his daughters died when the ship they were on hit another. Only his wife survived. What a tragedy for him. I imagine it was a long, sad trip for him.
But the story goes, when his ship was in the area where his daughters died, he went to his cabin and wrote this song. I have had my ups and downs in life but not like Horatio. But God was with him. God is with us too. He won’t leave us, especially during the hard times. He is right beside us, every step of the way.
So whatever you are going through today, remember, God is with you. He will help you through it if you let him.
Have a blessed day everyone.
