(Edward Payson, 1783-1827)
“Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years!” Deuteronomy 8:2
“Remember how He . . .
and drew us to Himself by the cords of love!
Remember how often He has since . . .
pardoned our sins,
borne with our unbelief, ingratitude, and stubbornness,
supplied our needs,
listened to our complaints,
alleviated our sorrows, and
revived our drooping spirits when we were ready to faint.
In short, we must remember all the way which He has led us, these many years, through a wilderness of sorrows and trials!
