[July 6]
When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it. Ecclesiastes 5:4
WHOEVER has not seen his need of making resolutions, making vows to the Lord, has not recognized the first principle of Christian development. He who finds from the enemy's attack where his wall is weakest, and who then repairs the weak places as quickly as ascertained, does so by resolution to the Lord—by vows. He who has not discovered any weaknesses in his character is duly blind and "cannot see afar off." He who has not attempted to correct his weaknesses by resolutions to the Lord, vows to the Lord, has not begun that character development which must be completed before he can be pronounced an overcomer.
