Daily Devotionals: (Jan. 11th): Think on These Things—Christ the Way

by Aaron Dunlop


Meditations on Christ the Redeemer

And now, dear friends, we have arrived upon high ground again. The man is now restored. He says in verse 24 (Psalm 73): “Thou shalt guide me with Thy counsel, and afterwards receive me to glory.” As if he should say, “Lord, I have had enough of guiding myself. Lord, I took my case into my own hands, and I was led by my own reasonings; and bitter indeed has been the result. O Lord, by Thy grace, there shall be no more of this. Thou shalt guide me henceforth. I will not trust my own wisdom any more. I will follow implicitly the teachings of Thy blessed Word, and the happy result will be, that afterwards I shall be received into glory.” And then the whole closes with the most joyful expressions of confidence and love and hope. “Whom have I in heaven but Thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside Thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

Rev. L. H. Wiseman (d. 1875)
