The Lord shall guide thee continually

THE Lord's people are singular in their practices, and they have singular privileges. The ruling desire of their souls is to be right. To think right. To do right. To go right. They feel they are sinners, and therefore daily plead for sanctification. They know they are in danger, and therefore daily pray to be kept. They are liable to go wrong, and therefore they desire a constant guide. Here the promise of God meets them, the Lord stoops to their needs and gratifies their desires, he says, " I will guide thee." Beloved, our journey is through a trackless desert; we know not a foot of the road, all before us is untrodden path; the road is lined with snares and dangers, there are many bypaths, let us therefore lay hold on this precious promise, " The Lord shall guide thee continually." He knows the path. He knows our frame. He knows every foe. He knows what we want, when we want, and how much we shall want; let us therefore put the hand of our faith into the hand of his special providence, and say,—

    Guide me, O thou great Jehovah,
Pilgrim through this barren land;

    I am weak, but thou art mighty,
Hold me with thy powerful hand:
Bread of Heaven,

    Feed me till I want no more.
