The Poor Man's Morning and Evening Portions : Being a Selection of a Verse of Scripture, with Short Observations for Every Day in the Year (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Poor Man's Morning and Evening Portions: Being a Selection of a Verse of Scripture, With Short Observations for Every Day in the Year It was thus holy men of old walked with God. They communed with the Lord, and the Lord with them through the medium of his word. They made known their wants, and the Lord made known his grace. Prayers went up, and answers came down and he made all his goodness to pass before them. In a more special manner they considered all the promises as their own. And they accepted of them as given of the Lord, with this express design, as if the Lord pledged himself by them to his people, that they might bring them before the mercy-seat whenever they needed, and plead for payment. Hence they kept house, feasted, and lived joy fully upon them, when they had nothing else to live upon. And from this cause it was, that after a succession of many generations from father to son, they could, and did appeal to the uninterrupted experience of every preceding history, and left it upon record for the assurance and comfort of all that should come after, that Not one thing had failed of all the good things which the Lord had promised, but all was come to pass as it is this day.
