God's Minute 2/26

O, satisfy us early with Thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Make us glad according to the days wherein Thou has afflicted us and the years wherein we have seen evil. And let the beauty of the Lord our God be uon us; and establish Thou the work of our hands upon us: yea, the work of our hands establish Thou it.--Psalm 90:14-17

DEAR LORD, let us do our work each day, and if the darkened hours of despair overcome us, may we not forget the strength that comforted us in the desolation of other times. In these times of backsliding, when so many allurements are held out by the world, let that great force which turned our life from darkness into Thy most marvelous light be ever present, and the "refining fire go through our hearts, illuminating our souls." May thy blessed Word be a lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path. Lift our eyes from the earth; forbid that we should judge others, lest we ourselves be condemned. Help us to understand Thy precious Word, and at this stage of the world's history may we be constantly looking for Thy glorious reappearing. Let us be like the wise virgins, constantly having on the wedding garments.

Amen.

Rev. A. Sheldrick,
