But what really struck me was his explanation of the first stanza
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word!
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
You, who unto Jesus for refuge have fled?
He said that this stanza was an exhortation from believers to each other, reminding us that our faith has a foundation that is unbreakable and deep. It has a solid basis. The scriptures have said this, which is what God has said.
He then goes into the line "What more can He say than to you He hath said" and to paraphrase what Mr. Powlison said:
There are a lot of questions that come up when studying scripture. God in his providence didn't give us all the answers. What more could he have said? When it comes down to what matters, good and evil, love and hate, salvation and destruction, the character of the living God and the nature of the human heart, what more could he have said. There is nothing more that needs to be said. He has said it all.
This was just a great reminder and encouraging to me to know that we have all that we need revealed to us in scripture.
