Do not cast me away when I am old chestnutmare Sun Apr 21, 2024 10:40 AM Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone. Psalm 71:9

“I am drawing nearer and nearer to the season which the Psalmist either expected or felt. Many reasons teach the aged believer the need of this prayer. As his graces are still imperfect — so his powers are feelingly upon the decline. It was but little he could do at his best — and now less and less!

He feels other props and comforts dropping off apace. When he was young, he had warm spirits and pleasing prospects; but now, what a change of the friends in which he once delighted! In some he has found inconstancy — they have forsaken and forgotten him; and others have been successively taken away by death. They have fallen like the leaves in autumn — and now he stands almost a naked trunk. If any yet remain, he is expecting to lose them likewise — unless he is first taken from them.

Old age abates, and gradually destroys the relish of such earthly comforts as might be otherwise enjoyed. Pains, infirmities, loss of sleep, the failure of sight and hearing, and all the senses — are harbingers, like Job's messengers arriving in close succession, to tell him that death is upon his progress, and is not far away!

If youth has no security against death — then old age has no possibility of escaping the grim monster. But though friends fail, cisterns burst, gourds wither, strength declines, and death advances — if God does not forsake me — then all is well.

"Even to your old age and gray hairs — I am He who will
sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will
sustain you and I will rescue you
!" Isaiah 46:4

You Have Been Warned chestnutmare Sun Apr 14, 2024 5:48 PM We have a standing rule to govern ourselves in this matter. It is this: when the same sins are found in one nation that have brought down the wrath of God on another nation, it is an evident sign of judgment at the door. For God is unchangeable, just, and holy and will not favor in one people what He has punished in another, nor will He bless in one age what He has cursed in another. It was on this very ground that the apostle warned the Corinthians by the example of the Israelites whose sins had ruined them in the wilderness. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted (1 Corinthians 10:6). It was as if he should say, ‘Look on those dead bodies which are, as it were, cast up on the scripture-shore for a warning to you. Do not follow the same course, or you will meet the same curse.’

~John Flavel , Preparation for Suffering, Chapter 3

When the basis and foundation of morality and ethics is removed chestnutmare Wed Apr 03, 2024 5:28 PM When the basis and foundation of morality and ethics is removed, and some begin to do "what is right in their own eyes" the society and nation will decline and collapse."

~ Frances Schaeffer, Death in the City, [written 50 years ago.]

Psalm 11:1-3
1In the Lord I put my trust;
How can you say to my soul,
“Flee as a bird to your mountain”?
2For look! The wicked bend their bow,
They make ready their arrow on the string,
That they may shoot secretly at the upright in heart.
3If the foundations are destroyed,
What can the righteous do?


Proverbs 21:2
Every way of a man is right in his own eyes,
But the Lord weighs the heart.

Perfect Peace chestnutmare Mon Mar 04, 2024 2:05 PM "You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You; because he trusts in You."
Isaiah 26:3

And, amid the corroding cares of domestic life, the anxieties of business, the pressure of need, the forebodings of evil, the foreshadowing of calamity, the distant mutterings of some gathering storm, how peacefully God in Christ can keep you! And when the "strife of tongues," the envenomed tooth of malice, the whisperings of envy, the spirit of jealousness and all uncharitableness would wound your heart, destroy your peace, and rob you of comfort-assailing character, reputation, usefulness—God, your reconciled Father, will put you within the curtained pavilion of His love, in the secret place of His perfections, and keep you there, safe, calm, and even cheerful, until the calamity be passed.

~ Octavius Winslow

Walk Humbly chestnutmare Wed Jan 17, 2024 1:21 PM Walk humbly. Keep low sails. Though you be adorned like a dove, with shining feathers, yet look to your black feet, your black heart and walk softly. Be making constant application to Christ and glory more in Himself than in His gifts.

~ Thomas Boston
