The Believer's Daily Remembrancer

Devotional for December 15

The righteous also shall hold on his way. - Job 17:9

The way to the kingdom is rough and rugged, our strength is often small, and our fears are very many. But if we are justified by grace, sanctified by the Spirit of truth, and pursue a consistent course, there is no doubt of our safe arrival at our Father's house; for "the righteous shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall wax stronger and stronger."

The true believer shall hold on, for the promise of God secures him; the fullness of Christ supplies him; the Spirit of grace influences him; the new nature urges him; occasional love-tokens encourage him; and attachment to the Lord and His people, prevents him from forsaking the right ways of the Most High.

Beloved, let us be concerned to have a blameless conversation; let us live near to and walk with Jesus, then our graces will flourish; we shall become rooted in Christ; our daily conquests will give us courage; and our God will give as He hath promised, even grace and glory. It is not for us to be timid; it is not for the righteous to despond, for he shall hold on his way. "They go from strength to strength; every one of them in Zion appeareth before God."

They may on the main of temptation be tossed,
Their troubles may swell like the sea;
But none of the ransom'd shall ever be lost,
The righteous shall hold on his way.
