July 4 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_Look at the generations of old, and see; did ever any trust in the Lord, and was confounded? or did any abide in His fear, and was forsaken? or whom did He ever despise, that called upon Him_?–ECCLESIASTICUS ii. 10.
_Remember, O Lord, Thy tender mercies, and Thy loving-kindnesses; for they have been ever of old_.–PS. xxv. 6.

My Father! see I trust the faithfulness displayed of old, I trust the love that never can grow cold– I trust in Thee.
CHRISTIAN INTELLIGENCER.
Be not so much discouraged in the sight of what is yet to be done, as comforted in His good-will towards thee. ‘Tis true, He hath chastened thee with rods and sore afflictions; but did He ever take away His loving-kindness from thee? or did His faithfulness ever fail in the sorest, blackest, thickest, darkest night that ever befell thee?
I. PENINGTON.
WE call Him the “God of our fathers;” and we feel that there is some stability at centre, while we can tell our cares to One listening at our right hand, by whom theirs are remembered and removed.
J. MARTINEAU.
