“The eyes of the Lord thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year. “—Deut. xi. 12.
Oh for grace, to live always under an abiding sense of this most
blessed truth. My soul, never forget it, if possible, but always
possess in recollection an abiding apprehension of Jesus’s gracious
presence. And do thou, dearest Lord, when thou art coming forth in
mercies, give me grace to. be going forth to meet thee with praises:
and while thou art bartering thy riches for my poverty, let all thy
bounties be doubly sweetened in coming from thine own hand, and being
sanctified by thy blessing, that I may receive all to my soul’s joy,
and to the praise of the Father’s grace in Christ Jesus. Amen.
