“You guide me with Your counsel and afterward receive me to glory.” Psalm 73:24
Prayer and faith, the universal remedies against every want, and every difficulty; and God’s holy word have helped me over every difficulty in my Christian life, a period now of 69 years and four months (written in March, 1895). Whenever I sincerely and patiently sought to know the will of God by the teaching of the Holy Ghost, I have been always been directed correctly. But if honesty of heart, and uprightness before God were lacking, or if I did not patiently wait upon God for instruction, or if I preferred the counsel of my fellow-men to the declarations of the word of the living God, I made great mistakes.
