Be strong and of a good courage,
fear not, nor be afraid of them;
for the Lord thy God ,
he it is that doth go with thee;
he will not fail thee,
nor forsake thee.
There is something very encouraging in the idea of a new start.
We should keep short accounts with God,
and live not only day by day but moment by moment.
This the staleness will disappear from life.
His mercies will be new new every morning,
and each experience will come to us like living waters
fresh from the fountains of his love and grace.
There is something most attractive in the idea of a new discovery,
an unexplored land,
a fresh advanced on new territory,
and new achievements.
How it lures the adventurer to the frigid zones,
and the dangerous tropics!
God has for each of us great and mighty things
which we know not,
and visions of truth and attainment which
“eye hath not seen nor ear heard,
neither hath it entered into the heart of man,
the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.”
Let us press farther on!
