We will be glad and rejoice in You. We will not open the gates of the year to the mournful notes of the trombone but to the sweet strains of the harp of joy. "O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation" (Ps. 95:1). What heavens are laid up in Jesus! What rivers of infinite bliss have their source and every drop of their fullness in Him! Since, sweet Lord Jesus, You are the present portion of Your people, favor us this year with such a sense of Your preciousness that from its first to its last day, we may be glad and rejoice in You.
He who lives without prayer, he who lives with little prayer, he who seldom reads the Word, and he who seldom looks up to heaven for a fresh influence from on high, he will be the man whose heart will become dry and barren. However, he who falls in secret on his God, who spends much time in holy retirement, who delights to meditate on the words of the Most High, and whose soul is given up to Christ, such a man must have an over-flowing heart. As his heart is, such will his life be.
