by Octavius Winslow (1808-1878)
With great pleasure, we offer this edited, large-type reprint of Octavius Winslow's morning devotions, titled Morning Thoughts. These thoughts were selected by Winslow himself from his writings. Unlike other daily devotionals, such as William Jay's, these daily portions elucidate only one or two thoughts from the day's text rather than providing a comprehensive view. The advantage of this approach is that the selections are deep, heart-warming, and inspirationaljust what is needed to offer a Christ-centered beginning to each day.
As is true of all of Winslow's writings, this volume is a gem. Representing devotional writing at its finest, it is replete with memorable statements for spiritual edification. Use this book to treasure those sacred truths of Scripture that will mold your thoughts, words, and actions of Christian living. Also see Evening Thoughts, Winslow's companion book of 365 "end-of-the-day" devotionals.
Sample excerpts from Morning Thoughts:
"The man who lives with God in little matters, who walks with God in the details of his life, is the man who becomes the best acquainted with Godwith His character, His faithfulness, His love."
"Believing prayer is prevailing, successful prayer. It assails the kingdom of heaven with holy violence, and carries it as by storm. It believes that God has both the heart and the arm, both the love that moves Him and the power that enables Him, to do all and to grant all that His pleading child requests of Him."
