IV. Application:

A. The Lord Himself invites you to find refuge in Him and in His Goodness

“If you can’t see the sun, you’ll be impressed with a streetlight. If you never felt thunder and lightning, you’ll be impressed with fireworks. And if you turn your back on the greatness and majesty of God you’ll fall in love with a world of shadows and short-lived pleasures.” — John Piper

B. Rejoice in your present and coming inheritance
