The Tozer Anthology

The observation of the New Year is useful if it persuades us to slow down and let our souls catch up.



So much for last year; but what about the year ahead? Well, there are said to be three thousand promises in the Holy Scriptures, and they are all ours if we know what to do with them.



For some of us last year was one in which we did not acquit ourselves very nobly as Christians, considering the infinite power available to us through the indwelling Spirit.



Of all persons the Christian should be best prepared for whatever the New Year brings, for he has dealt with life at its source.



We cannot know for certain the what and the whither of our earthly pilgrimage, but we can be sure of the Who. And nothing else really matters.



For the Christian there is no unexplored territory. “When he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them” (John l0:4, KJV).


The footprint of the obedient sheep is always found within the larger footprint of the Shepherd.
