UPON MY TOWER

UPON MY TOWER

"I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what He will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved."
Habakkuk 2:1
------

"God not only speaks to us by His word, but speaks in us by our own consciences, whispering to us, This is the way, walk in it. Those that expect to hear from God must withdraw from the world, and get above it, must raise their attention, fix their thought, study the scriptures, consult experiences and the experienced, continue instant in prayer, and thus set themselves upon the tower.

When we are perplexed with doubts concerning the methods of Providence, are tempted to think that it is fate, and not a wise God that governs the world, then we must set ourselves upon the tower, to see if we can discover that which will silence the temptation and solve the difficulties, must go into the sanctuary of God, and there labor to understand the end of these things. When we have been at prayer, pouring out our complaints and requests before God, we must carefully observe what answers God gives by His word, His Spirit, and His providences."
-Matthew Henry
