They Can Never be Removed

They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which 
cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.
                                                                Psalms 125:1

They can never be removed from the Lord, though they may be
removed from his house and ordinances, as sometimes David
was; and from his gracious presence, and sensible communion
with him; and out of the world by death: yet never from his heart’s
love, nor out of the covenant of his grace, which is sure and everlasting;
nor out of his family, into which they are taken; nor from the Lord
Jesus Christ, nor out of his hands and arms, nor from off his heart;
nor from off him, as the foundation on which they are laid; nor out of
a state of grace, either regeneration or justification; but such abide in
the love of God, in the covenant of his grace, in the hands of his Son,
in the grace wherein they stand, and in the house of God for evermore.
