by Octavius Winslow (1808-1878)
This companion to Morning Thoughts will engage and comfort the believer as they end their day. This book provides a detailed exposition of portions of a Scripture text and applies them to the reader.
Sample excerpts from Evening Thoughts:
"In ourselves we have no resources for the battle and journey of life; the fact that their source is outside of ourselves pleads for our trust in Jesus. Grace is not natural to us, holiness is not innate, and our native strength is but another term for utter weakness. Where, then, are our resources? All in Jesus. 'For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fulness dwell' (Col. 1:19)."
"'Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places (things) in Christ' (Eph. 1:3). Christ is both the believer's armory and his granary. The weapons of our warfare and the supplies of our necessities are all in Christ. The life we live as warriors and as pilgrims must be a continual coming to, and trusting in, a full Christ, an all-sufficient Savior."

After I read for the evening, I want to go on. Tears flow as I feel the love of the Master.
