Brainerd: a glimpse

Tuesday, August 4, 2015
    Feast of John Vianney, Curè d’Ars, 1859
    In [Christ Jesus] and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
    —Ephesians 3:12 (NIV)
    In the evening [I] enjoyed some comfort and satisfaction; and especially had some sweetness in secret prayer. This duty was made so agreeable to me, that I loved to walk abroad, and repeatedly engage in it. Oh, how comfortable is a little glimpse of God!
    ... David Brainerd (1718-1747), Memoirs of the Rev. David Brainerd, New Haven: S. Converse, 1822, p. 377 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 3:12; Mic. 6:8; Eph. 2:13; John 1:18; 1 John 4:12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are always present that I may turn to You.
