“My eyes are ever toward the LORD, for He shall pluck my feet out of the net.” Psalm 25:15
“Happy is the man who is always reverent [fears always].” Proverbs 28:14
Our spiritual enemies are powerful and crafty; they lie in wait everywhere, so that in all places and at all times we are surrounded with many cruel murderers. Blessed is he that keeps clear from self-confidence; and fearing always, says within himself, as soon as he awakes in the morning, “Who knows what temptations I may meet with today? Perhaps when I arise, at the very first step, my feet may be entangled in dangerous snares and nets.”
Grant, O Lord, I beseech You, that distrusting myself, I may put my whole confidence in You, watching evermore in all things, and looking cautiously in all places about me, where there is any fear of danger. Whatever I am about to do or to speak, let me first commune with You by prayer; that keeping always close to You, I may be preserved against the power and craft of my enemies, as in a stronghold; and confidently say, according to Your own pattern given (Psalm 16:8): “I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.”
God is my Portion and my joy;
His counsels are my light!
He gives me sweet advice by day,
And guards me through the night.
My soul would all her thoughts approve
To His all-seeing eye;
Nor death nor hell my hopes shall move,
While such a Friend is near.
Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (1690—1774)

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
