Pavilioned within His living, loving heart

(Octavius Winslow, "From Grace to Glory" 1864)

If you are His child, Jesus is concerned with
all that appertains and attaches to you. He
moulds and pencils all the events of your
life
; giving to each its form and complexion.

He is pledged . . .
  to the supply of every need,
  to guide each step,
  to sustain in every sorrow, and
  to keep you by His power unto the end.

Oh, the blessedness of being in Christ!

Here alone is liberty, security, and peace.

The foe cannot assail you, the arrow cannot
wound you, the storms cannot reach you,
encompassed by His divine perfections, and
pavilioned within His living, loving heart.
