it is with each of GOD'S saints. We cannot see, because of the
imperfection of mortal vision, the harnessed squadrons of fire and
light; but the Angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear
Him, and delivereth them.

GOD is between us and
temptation. However strong the foe, GOD is stronger.

are, through long habits of yielding, GOD is greater than our hearts,
and can keep in perfect peace.

the deluge of care.

next rent, the next meal, come from? "

and flowers, of children, of Jesus, and all holy souls. Oh, rest in the

He is your reward; and as He
intercepted the pursuit of Pharaoh, so He stands at Calvary between your
past and you.
The assayer of retribution is arrested by that Divine
Victim what more can we ask!
