'But his wind shaketh no corn.' Samuel Rutherford
The above quote is from the writings of Samuel Rutherford and is perfect for what I want to share this week. It is written in old Scots and means 'But his wind does no harm.'
In this letter, Samuel is speaking about the workings of the enemy. How he brags and boasts and tries to destroy the God given ministries that have been given so richly by Christ. But the truth is, as we stay in Christ the enemy cannot do us any harm. He may try and destroy the church, the harvest, but he won't be able to. His bragging and boastings will come to naught.
And so we press on solidly with the work that Christ has given us to do. The Bible speaks of this principle again and again. 'Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee, because he trusteth in Thee.'
'Now the God of peace ... make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever.'
So press on, child of God, with no fear. The God of our Lord Jesus Christ shall perfect all that concerns you.
