“Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God, for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.” (Psalm 42:11) ———— Do you forget, O soul, that the way to heaven is a very strait and narrow path-too narrow for you to carry your sins in it with you?

I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.

Lord, subdue it! Here is this temptation! Deliver me out of it! Here is my proud heart! Lord, humble it! Here is my unbelieving heart! Take it away, and give me faith; give me… Read More

Pardon for the Greatest of Sinners ———— Psalm 25:11 For thy name’s sake, O Lord, pardon my iniquity; for it is great. ———— It is evident by some passages in this psalm, that when it was penned, it was a time of affliction and danger with David. This appears particularly by the 15th and following verses: “Mine eyes are ever towards the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the… Read More
