Empty bubbles!

(Henry Law, "Psalms")

"I have hated those who regard lying vanities.
But I trust in the Lord. I am overcome with joy
because of Your unfailing love, for You have
seen my troubles, and You care about the
anguish of my soul."  Psalm 31:6-7

Many vain cheats are impudent to deceive us!

Riches,
honors,
titles,
reason,
intellect,
invite us to rely on their aid.

But they are empty bubbles.

Their promises are fraud.

The believer flees with abhorrence
from those who walk in these deceits.

He has a large volume of experience. In
trouble he has found that God's thoughts
were on him. All his adverse circumstances
have been lovingly regarded. In all his
ways of sorrow God has been by his side.

"I have hated those who regard lying vanities.
But I trust in the Lord. I am overcome with joy
because of Your unfailing love, for You have
seen my troubles, and You care about the
anguish of my soul."  Psalm 31:6-7
