Guidance' “When he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth” (John 16:13). We may be as sure of the guidance of the Holy Spirit as the chosen people were sure of the pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night. He will guide us into all the truth about the character of God, the" work of Christ, the present possibility and the future destiny of man; but He will guide us also in the smallest details of daily experience.—Selected. “ W a tc h " “Watch ye therefore, and’ pray al­ ways” (Lk. 21:36). 6.

L My Prayer “Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest” (John 4:35). Open my eyes, that I may see This one and that one needing Thee, Hearts that are dumb, unsatisfied, lives that are dead, for whom Christ died. Open my eyes in faith, I pray; Give me the strength to speak today, Some one to bring, dear Lord, to Thee: Use me, O Lord, use even me. —Betty Stam. 2.

soever we make necessary for our con­ tentment, we make lord of our happi­ ness.—Alexander Maclaren. 3. Eating Manna “And the children of Israel did eat manna . . . until they came to a land inhabited” (Ex. 16:35). It is a great blessing to be hungry. Lack of hunger is a sign of illness. When our soul does not crave spiritual food, it is sick. Hungry souls are healthful souls. Jesus Christ is our manna. He is the Bread of Life. There was no substitute for the desert’s manna. There is no substitute for Jesus Christ.—Selected. 4. Appropriate “Oh, how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee” (Psa. 31:19).

We live in an atmosphere that has a constant tendency to unfit us for Christ’s coming. The world tends to draw us down by its gratifications and its cares. There is only one way by which we can rise triumphant above these things — by constant watching unto prayer, that is, by sleeplessness unto prayer. Pray! Pray! Pray! —R. A. Torrey.
