Thou shalt guide me with Thy counsel. - Psalms 73:24

This supposes a knowledge of the Lord as infinitely gracious; inflexibly just; inconceivably wise; and immutably faithful: except we know Him we cannot trust Him.

But here is an entire surrender to Him, to be led where He pleases; as He chooses; and by whom He will. This surrender is becoming, prudent, gainful; for godliness with such contentment is great gain. Such a surrender is the effect of faith in the Lord's promise, gracious presence, and covenant character; it exhibits expectation from the Lord.

Whom the Lord guides He protects; He preserves; He supplies; and receives. He receives them now at the throne of grace, to be His charge and His care; and He will receive them at the throne of His glory, and introduce them to holiness, happiness, and honour.

Beloved, have you thus surrendered? Are you daily surrendering? Can you say to your gracious God, "Thou shalt guide me with Thy counsel, and afterwards receive me to glory?" If so, happy are ye; the Spirit of glory and of God will rest upon you.

Thy word, O Lord, is light and food,
The law of truth, and source of good.
Oh, let it richly dwell within,
To keep me from the snares of sin:
And guide me still to choose my way
That I no more may go astray.
