FROM THE WHITE CLIFFS OF DOVER
The opposite shore was sometimes distinctly visible, and objects more or less discernible, according to the state of the atmosphere through which they were seen. But when a thick mist obscured everything, the eye that had once seen the white cliffs glistening in the sunlight, knew in which direction to look for them; and one never doubts that they are still there, though invisible because shrouded in mist.
So there are bright promises concerning the “better land”, the King thereof, and the subjects thereof, which are blessed realities to faith, when seen in the light that shines from the Sun of Righteousness; and these are not less real when clouds and darkness hide His bright beams, or the eye of faith is dim.
Let us learn, then, to “trust in Him at all times”, for “He is faithful that promised.” He bids us to “remember” that He will not forget. (Is. 44.21,22).
