Through a Wilderness of Sins, Sorrows, Trials and Temptations

“Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years!” Deuteronomy 8:2

“Remember how He . . .
pitied us,
awakened us,
convinced us of sin, and
drew us to Himself by the cords of love!

Remember how often He has since . . .
healed our backslidings,
pardoned our sins,
borne with our unbelief, ingratitude, and stubborness,
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 sins, sorrows, trials and temptations! ~ Edward Payson, 1783-1827

“He led you through the vast and dreadful desert, that thirsty and waterless land, with its venomous snakes and scorpions!” Deuteronomy 8:15
