Quote of the Day

"...Is it not wonderful that God should help us at all? Have we not wondered hundreds of times at the singular help He has given? If we have not, what ungrateful blindness! HE has been giving it ever since we were helpless babies. The very little things, the microscopic helpings, often seem most marvelous of all when we consider that it was Jehovah Himself who stooped to the tiny need of a moment. And the greater matters prove themselves to be the Lord's doing, just because they are so marvelous in our eyes. Why should we fear being brought to some depth of perplexity and trouble when we know He will be true to His name and be our help, so that we shall be 'men wondered at' because we have been so marvelously helped! Let us turn out special attention to it each day. We need help of all kinds all day long. How just observe how He gives it! Even if nothing the least unusual happens, the opened and watching eye will see that the whole day is one sweet story of marvelous help. And perhaps the greatest marvel will be that He has helped  us to see His help after much practical blindness to it. And then the marveling will rise in praising the name of the Lord your God who has dealt wondrously with you."
