“Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving” (Col. 4:2).
Why does God have to remind us over and over to be faithful in prayer? It would seem that we who have been redeemed by the precious blood of Christ would count it one of our greatest privileges to “come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Yet we must be reminded of “continuing instant in prayer,” and to “pray without ceasing.” Not only in times of crisis and great need, but “praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,” and “in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” Let us constantly remember that “the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” Therefore, “I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.” “In the day when I cried Thou answeredst me.”
Bowing before Him in love,
Trusting His wisdom divine,
Relying upon Him in trouble,
His own perfect peace is mine.

“Help, Lord; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men” (Psa. 12:1).
What is the believer to do in a day of lawlessness and apostasy such as we face today, when “judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off,” when “truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter”? It is a day when “evil men and seducers … wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived,” and when “he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey.” Our Lord warned that “because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” Can we believers live for the glory of Christ in such days? Yes, His grace is sufficient, and more than sufficient. Recall that before the flood, when “the wickedness of man was great in the earth,” when “every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually,” in that dark day, “Noah walked with God,” and Enoch “had this testimony, that he pleased God.” Let us, as they did, take grace from God, “and be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.”
Walk with God, when all around
Darkness and evil prevail?
Yes, strong in grace, looking to Him,
The Christ, who will never fail.

“He shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper” (Psa. 72:12).
The world and nominal Christendom has a saying that God helps those who help themselves. But there are many times when we cannot help ourselves, when “the journey is too great for thee.” But in such times, “He knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness,” and how blessed and encouraging it is to know that “He shall deliver … him that hath no helper.” So, when “trouble is near [and] there is none to help,” and when we cry to Him to “give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man,” we can be sure that though “I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me,” and “He shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper,” for “He forgetteth not the cry of the humble,” and “the poor committeth himself to Thee; Thou art the helper of the fatherless.” “He shall judge the poor of the people, He shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.” “The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear Him, in those that hope in His mercy.”
Weary, sad and discouraged,
With no help to be found in man,
We cry to Him who loves us,
And “upholdeth … with His hand.”

“Let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful” (Col. 3:15).
God desires for His children that “the peace of God rule in your hearts.” The word “rule” means to “act as umpire” or “arbitrate,” that is, to make the decisions: to direct and control our lives. Most of us know that any decisions made when our hearts were not filled with God’s peace have been wrong and hurtful decisions. We continually need in our hearts “the peace of God.” “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” For “the Lord will give strength unto His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace.” “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” “Lord, Thou wilt ordain peace for us: for Thou also hast wrought all our works in us.” “Happy is the man that findeth wisdom. … Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.” “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee.” “Now the peace of God be with you all. Amen.”
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on Thee”;
In all the ins and outs of life,
Peace shall his portion be.

“Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand” (Phil 4:5).
The word “moderation” carries the thought of reasonableness, considerateness, gentleness and forbearance, which we who know the Lord are to exercise because “the Lord is at hand.” We are “looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ,” “and every man that hath this hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is pure.” We are therefore to be “gentle, showing all meekness unto all men,” “with all lowliness and meekness, with long-suffering, forbearing one another in love.” “Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children,” “for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.” “Now I … beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ” to “let us consider one another,” and “rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep,” and “be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient; in meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth.” “Let your moderation be known unto all men,” for “we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Gentle and meek and forbearing,
God would have His people be,
Looking “on the things of others,”
Living for eternity.

“Now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known” (1 Cor. 13:12).
“Face to face.” What will it mean when we see Him, “whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see Him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.” That One who has so graciously sustained us through life’s pilgrimage, who, looking down from heaven, invites us to “come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” That One who “hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.” That One who has stood by us in times of grief and trial and pain, telling us to “fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness.” That One “who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree.” That One who “calleth His own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.” We shall see Him “face to face,” and as He did with Moses, He shall speak with us “face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend.”
When we see Him in the glory,
When our faith has been changed to sight,
Hearts will be gladdened forever,
In the realms of eternal light.

“If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you” (John 15:7).
To “abide in” Christ is to “stay” or “remain” or “continue” in fellowship with Him. It is to be “casting all your care upon Him,” to “trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding,” and to “confess our sins,” knowing that “He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” When we thus “abide in” Him, “ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” Thus abiding, we will not “ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.” We will, rather, ask in His name, seeking His will and His glory, and His promise is that “whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in My name, I will do it.” “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.” “And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He heareth us: and if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.”
He hears the prayers of all His own,
And bends His ear to their cries,
He knows their burdens and their cares,
And He heareth all their sighs.

“The Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken” (Prov. 3:26).
How much the Christian needs the upholding and overruling grace of God, to “keep thy foot from being taken.” The world, the flesh, and the devil constantly seek to ensnare us and cause our feet to go astray out of God’s paths. He tells us to “ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil,” for He assures us who seek to walk with Him, “I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths. When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straightened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.” “For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.” “He will keep the feet of His saints,” and “thou shalt walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.” “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” “The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.” “Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.” “For Thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not Thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?”
He alone can direct my steps
In the way they ought to go,
To keep from the snares of Satan,
All because He loves me so.

“If Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness” (Rom. 8:10).
We Christians have the same kind of unredeemed bodies as unsaved people have. To be sure, “your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own.” Nevertheless, we still have mortal death-doomed bodies, subject to injury and disease and aging. “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body,” and “if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.” “For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.” So “we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body,” and “in my flesh shall I see God: whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another.”
We live now in tents of clay,
Mortal and very frail,
But we live in hope each day,
Here below in this vale.

“We have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin” (Heb. 4:15).
There are certain things that are essential, if we are to be saved. There are things which are absolutely necessary; they cannot be dispensed with. First, there must be a Saviour “without sin.” This we have in God’s beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, “who did no sin,” “who knew no sin,” “and in Him is no sin.” Even so, His holiness and sinlessness cannot in itself save us, for “without shedding of blood is no remission.” It was necessary that He give that sinless life for us, that we might be “redeemed … with the precious blood of Christ, as of a Lamb without blemish and without spot.” Then, though He died for all, forgiveness must be personally received, and here we have another essential, namely, faith. “But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” Be sure, dear reader, that you have personally received “the gift of God [which] is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord,” who said that “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.”
He shed His blood for your sins,
That you might forgiven be,
That you might know and praise Him
Throughout all eternity.
