“I have set the Lord always before me: because he is of my right hand, I shall not be moved.”
– Ps. 16:8


“Amid the perplexities that will press upon the soul, there is only One who can help us out of all our difficulities, and relieve all our disquietude.  We are to cast all our care upon Jesus, and bear in mind that He is present, and is directing us to commune with Him.  We are to keep our minds stayed upon God; and in our weakness, He will be our strength; in our ignorance, He will be our wisdom; in our frailty, He will be our enduring might.

We need to educate and train the mind so that we shall have an intelligent faith, and have an understanding friendship with Jesus.  Unless we continually cherish friendship between God and our souls, we shall separate from Him, and walk apart from Him.  We shall make friends of those around us, and place our trust in humanity, and our affections will be diverted from the true object of worship.  We must not allow coldness to chill our love for our Redeemer.  If we have fellowship with Him, we must ever set the Lord before us, and treat Him as an honoured Friend, giving Him the first place in our affections.  We should speak of His matchless charms, and constantly cultivate the desire to have a better knowledge of Jesus Christ.  Then His Spirit will have a controlling power upon the life and character. . . . If ever there was a time when men needed the presence of Christ at their right hand, it is now . . . . We need the captain of our salvation continually by our side.”
