"How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
Whose hope is in the Lord his God,"
This is the secret to true happiness. To know God and the hope we have in Him. Other relationships may falter and even fade away, but our relationship with God is secure; eternally sound. It will never die. We have His help while we are on this earth and when our time here is ended we have Him as our reward in Heaven. And make no mistake, He is the ultimate reward. We often talk about all the pleasures we'll have in that eternal dwelling place, but none will compare with the joy of being in the presence of our Savior. "The God of Jacob is the God of the covenant, the God of wrestling prayer, the God of the tried believer; He is the only living and true God. The God of Jacob is Jehovah, who appeared unto Moses, and led the tribes of Jacob out of Egypt, and through the wilderness. Those are happy who trust Him, for they shall never be ashamed or confounded. The Lord never dies, neither do His thoughts perish: His purpose of mercy, like Himself, endures throughout all generations. Hallelujah!" (Spurgeon)
