God’s Provision

“In times of temptation

console yourself with God’s promises,

for there is no deceit

in the word of Him who repays all,

and His treasure house is not so paltry

that we should doubt His promise;

He has surrendered His own Son for us

so that we might believe in Him;

His Body is with us,

His assurance is with us,

He came and gave us His keys,

since it is for us that His treasures lie waiting.”

(St. Ephrem the Syrian, Hymns on Paradise, pg. 119)
