HE CARETH FOR YOU --- 1 Peter 5:7.

"Give heed to me, O Lord." --- Jeremiah 18:19.

Divine Answer: "Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep." --- Psalm 121:4.

"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." --- 1 Peter 5:7.

The care of the Lord, which he takes for his little ones, infinitely exceeds the care of the most tender mother over her weak and helpless child. Then, whilst I feel sad and own myself weak, foolish, and wretched, and the Lord being the guardian of such babes, he will have patience with me, for they are the vessels of his grace; knowing myself, therefore, to be always a weak and ignorant child, I will labour to keep close to Jesus in waiting and prayer.

And Since he is the Minister of the sanctuary, he will never let me want anything, that is good for me; but will defend me and feed me, and train me up in the best and most suitable manner.

Be thou my counsellor,
My pattern and my guide;
And through this desert land
Still keep me near thy side.
Oh let my feet
Ne'er run astray,
Nor rove, nor seek
The crooked way.

Should all the hosts of death,
And pow'rs of hell unknown,
Put their most dreadful forms
Of rage and mischief on;
I shall be safe
For Christ displays
Superior power
And guardian grace.
