[July 20]
Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day. Acts 26:22
IN REFERRING to the preservation of his life, the apostle does not give credit to Lysias, the commander of the garrison at Jerusalem, but declares that he obtained help of God, by whom he had been sustained to the time of his speaking....There is a good lesson in this for all the Lord's people. How apt many are to give credit to "luck" or "chance" or human instrumentality, overlooking the fact that the Lord's saints are the special objects of his care, and that the angel of the Lord encampeth round about them and delivereth them. Z'03-158 R3197:3(Hymn 61)
