Ah! we live in an enemy's land!
(Letters of John Newton)
"Though he stumbles, he will not be utterly cast down, for the Lord upholds him with His hand!" Psalm 37:24
Ah! we live in an enemy's land! We tread upon enchanted ground, and breathe an infected air! Without the supporting power of God and the preservatives of the Gospel — we would surely faint and fall.
Oh! my Lord, keep me. I adore and wonder that I have been kept, that I stand — for surely I am no wiser or better than some who have fallen.
"Hold me up, and I shall be safe! And I shall observe Your statutes continually." Psalm 119:117
