“Live much in the smiles of God” by Robert Murray M’Cheyne

Tolle Lege

“Learn much of your own heart; and when you have learned all you can, remember you have seen but a few yards into a pit that is unfathomable.

‘The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?’ Jeremiah 17:9.

Learn much of the Lord Jesus. For every look at yourself, take ten looks at Christ. He is altogether lovely. Such infinite majesty, and yet such meekness and grace, and all for sinners, even the chief!

Live much in the smiles of God. Bask in His beams. Feel His all-seeing eye settled on you in love, and repose in His almighty arms.

Cry after divine knowledge, and lift up your voice for understanding. Seek her as silver, and search for her as for hid treasure, according to the word in Proverbs 2:4.

See that Proverbs 2:10 be fulfilled in you. Let wisdom enter into your hearts…

  1. Tracey, Thanks for giving me another source of encouragement and wisdom. I love that blog and that man…McCheyne. I’ve been thinking of you a lot. While I’m driving, I’m praying to Tracey has a beautiful, sunshine-filled day. You’re a buttercup. 3X

  2. It never ceases to amaze me when a letter written in 1840 is still so relevant and important as if it was written today in 2014. Spurgeon always does that to me and I am so grateful and blessed by their insight and wisdom. Their treasure in Heaven continues to grow as they assist us in our daily walk and continue to point us to Christ our Savior.

    Your treasure will be overflowing for many, many years to come. Grace and peace to you today!

  3. Thx for sharing! This phrase really stood out…
    “Let the Holy Spirit fill every chamber of your heart; and so there will be no room for folly, or the world, or Satan, or the flesh.”
    Oh Lord, that every chamber of my heart be filled with You!
