• “God is sovereign, that is He is the boss. He is in control. He is the supreme ruler of heaven and earth for all of eternity. He is Lord. We don’t make Him Lord. He is Lord. And joy comes when we acknowledge that He is Lord; we rest in His Lordship. We trust His sovereignty, and we surrender to it. That means that God has the right to give, and God has the right to take away.” – Nancy DeMoss

August 10 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

The cup which my Father has given me, shall I not drink it?–JOHN xviii. 11.
Whatsoever is brought upon thee, take cheerfully.–ECCLESIASTICUS ii. 4.

Every sorrow, every smart, That the Eternal Father’s heart Hath appointed me of yore, Or hath yet for me in store, As my life flows on, I ‘ll take Calmly, gladly, for His sake, No more faithless murmurs make
P. GERHARDT.
The very least and the very greatest sorrows that God ever suffers to befall thee, proceed from the depths of His unspeakable love; and such great love were better for thee than the highest and best gifts besides that He has given thee, or ever could give thee, if thou couldst but see it in this light. So that if your little finger only aches, if you are cold, if you are hungry or thirsty, if others vex you by their words or deeds, or whatever happens to you that causes you distress or pain, it will all help to fit you for a noble and blessed state.
J. TAULER.

  • “If we do anything to further the kingdom of God, we may expect to find what Christ found on that road – abuse, indifference, injustice, misunderstanding, trouble of some kind. Take it. Why not? To that you were called. If we think of the glorious fact that we are on the same path with Jesus, we might see a rainbow.” – Elisabeth Elliot
