To Ponder:

“Do not forsake me, O Lord! Do not be far from me, O my God!” Psalm 38:21. Frequently we pray that God would not forsake us in the hour of trial and temptation–but we too much forget that we have need to use this prayer at all times. There is no moment of our life, however holy–in which we can do without His constant upholding. Whether in light or in darkness, in communion or in temptation–we alike need the prayer, “Do not forsake me, O Lord!” Hold me up–and I shall be safe!” A little child, while learning to walk–always needs the parent’s aid. The ship left by the navigator–drifts at once from her course. We cannot do without continuous aid from God!
