DECEMBER. 24

 

 Thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sinsóMatthew. 1:21.

 

 The noting of those little incidentals by which Divine providence prepared for our Saviourís birth and for the sending forth of the Gospel message, is strengthening to the faith of the Lordís people. Realizing Godís care in the past over even the little things, gives a foundation for confidence in His wisdom and provision for the features of His Plan which are yet future the fulfilment of all the exceeding great and precious promises which centred in Him who was born in Bethlehem. And so also are realization of the Divine providence in the larger affairs of the Divine Plan stimulates faith also in the Lordís providences as respects the personal and more private affairs of His people.
