“I will not let You go unless You bless me!” Genesis 32:26
“Do not forsake me, O LORD; O my God.” Psalm 38:21
“Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.” Genesis 28:15
“I know you by name, and you have also found grace in My sight.” Exodus 33:12
“I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
God will have me to be faithful, and will not He be so Himself? Am I to trust in His word? Then surely He will not forsake me — but graciously fulfill His word. Heaven and earth must pass away — but His word will not. He is ever faithful.
If I do not believe this, I derogate from the character of God, and can have no help or comfort from His word. But if I truly believe Him to be faithful, I believe enough. This is what He requires; and if I really comply, my faith will not be moved, even in the hottest trials. The Word will hold me up, though I receive it even in weakness. But my faith must be constant, undivided, unmixed with self-righteousness. It must be attended with continual prayer.
My God, send Your Holy Spirit to work this faith in me. Let me not be faithless — but believing. Help me to take up these precious promises and appropriate them; having done so, plead them at Your throne and fully expect their fulfillment. May I never doubt Your veracity or question Your faithfulness; but rather say with Job, “Though He slay me — yet will I trust in Him.”

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.
