THY SHOES SHALL BE IRON AND BRASS
Deut. 33:25

Robert Hawker
(1753-1827)


"Thy shoes shall be iron and brass; and as thy days, so shall thy strength be."–Deut. xxxiii. 25.

What a thought that is which the word of God furnisheth, in the view of everlasting engagements, that a suitable strength is laid up for every emergency. God's love hath provided adequate supplies to the wants of all his people. What strength of enemies shall be equal to the everlasting strength of God? What shall drain the resources of everlasting love? What shall dry up the streams which flow from an everlasting fountain? Jesus therefore will proportion the back of his people to the burden. His grace shall be sufficient for all: it shall be sufficient for you, it shall be sufficient for me, for every one, for all. Sweet thought! Oh for grace to keep it always in remembrance!

From the POOR MAN'S MORNING AND EVENING PORTIONS.
