Talmage: taking His hand

Friday, April 19, 2013
    Commemoration of Alphege, Archbishop of Canterbury, Martyr, 1012
    [Peter:] “And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
    —Acts 2:21 (NIV)
    If your path had been smooth, you would have depended upon your own surefootedness; but God roughened that path, so you have to take hold of His hand. If the weather had been mild, you would have loitered along the watercourses, but at the first howl of the storm you quickened your pace heavenward and wrapped around you the warm robe of a Saviour’s righteousness.
    ... Thomas De Witt Talmage (1832-1902), The Pathway of Life, Historical Publishing Company for the Christian Herald, 1894, p. 100 (see the book)
    See also Acts 2:21; Lam. 3:32-33; Amos 4:6-11; Matt. 14:25-33; Rom. 5:3-4; 8:28; 2 Cor. 4:17; 12:7-9; Jas. 1:12; Rev. 3:19
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, extend Your protection around me.
