Oh, what a blessed formula for us!

(John MacDuff)

"Simon replied: Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing.
 Nevertheless, at Your Word I will let down the net!" Luke 5:5

"Nevertheless, at Your Word!" Oh, what a blessed formula for us!

This path of mine is dark, mysterious, perplexing! Nevertheless, at Your Word I will go forward.

This trial of mine is cutting, sore for flesh and blood to bear! It is hard to breathe through a broken heart, "May Your will be done!" But, nevertheless, at Your word I will say, "Even so, Father — for this is Your good pleasure!"

This besetting sin or bad habit of mine — is difficult to crucify. It has become part of myself — a second nature! To be severed from it would be like the cutting off of a right hand, or the plucking out of a right eye! Nevertheless, at Your Word I will lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily entangles me! This idol, I will utterly abolish!

"You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed!" Psalm 119:4

"Help me understand Your instruction — and I will obey it and follow it with all my heart!" Psalm 119:34
