When one door closes and another opens, it is always a day mixed with both sorrow and joy, and yesterday was no exception. I say sorrow, not because of regret but because the door that is closing leaves behind with it an era that has now come to an end and as one looks back, the memories abound! Memories of God’s faithful dealings, His divine providence, and keeping hand of grace. His faithful provision and steadfast promises which all the way hath proven to be yea and amen! To run a course appointed you by God and to have Him close the door and in its place to open another is a thing to be most cherished. So many bail out on God before the time, but to run the course and to finish the race and then to have God move you on unto things better still; is to have the calm repose and restful assurance that we are right where He would have us to be!!!
This is the last sermon ever preached in the Chapel of Royal School Wolverhampton. We reflect on how the Lord has led us thus far and prepare ourselves for Him bringing us into our new place of meeting. Two things are apparent, the Lord has gone before us and we must seek to follow after in the spirit of earnest prayer!
