Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his
wonderful works to the children of men!–PSA. 107:8.
O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth
in him.–How great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them
that fear thee!
This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my
praise.–Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus
Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the
praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in
the beloved. That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first
trusted in Christ.
How great is his goodness, and how great is his beauty!–The Lord is
good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works. All thy
works shall praise thee, O Lord; and thy saints shall bless thee. They
shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power; to make
known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of

NOVEMBER 7 EVENING
Behold, we count them happy which endure.–JAS. 5:11.
We glory in tribulations: . . . knowing that tribulation worketh
patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope
maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our
hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.–No chastening for the
present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it
yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are
exercised thereby.–My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into
divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh
patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be
perfect and entire, wanting nothing. Blessed is the man that endureth
temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life,
which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.–Most gladly
therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of
Christ may rest upon me. For when I am weak, then am I strong.
