1 Chronicles 29:29-30
Now the acts of David the king, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of Samuel the seer…
I. They are NUMEROUS.
1. There are personal vicissitudes.
2. There are common vicissitudes. The earth is a theatre of perpetual change.
II. They are MEMORABLE. The vicissitudes of life deserve a record; they are things to be remembered by man. Why?
1. Because they serve to unfold the preparatory character of our state.
2. Because they develop the agency of God.
3. Because they show the importance of confiding in the Immutable.
4. Because they tend to direct us to the true scene of rest. The vicissitudes of our history are hands on the face of life's chronometer; they measure the hours in our short days that are gone, and intimate the few that may yet remain.
