Forget not all His benefits.
-Psalm ciii 2

It is delightful and profitable occupation to mark the hand of God in the lives of ancient saint... But would it not be even more interesting and profitable for us to remark the hand of God in our own lives? We do our Lord an injustice when we suppose that He wrought all his mighty acts, and showed Himself strong for those in the early time, but doth not perform wonders... for the saints that are now upon the earth. 

Let us review our own lives. Surely in these we may discover some happy incidents, refreshing to ourselves and glorifying to our God. Have you had no deliverances?... Have you walked through no fires unharmed?... Have you had no choice favours?... That God of lavish bounty of whom David sang, "Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things," hath He never satisfied you...?... Have you never been led by the still water? Surely the goodness of God has been the same to us as to the saints of old. Let us, then, weave His mercies into a song... Let our souls give forth music as sweet and as exhilarating as came from David's harp, while we praise the Lord whose mercy endureth forever.
-C.H. Spurgeon
