February 11 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

I have finished the work which Thou gavest me to do.–JOHN xvii. 4.
She hath done what she could.–MARK xiv. 8.

He who God’s will has borne and done, And his own restless longings stilled, What else he does, or has foregone, His mission he has well fulfilled.
FROM THE GERMAN.
Cheered by the presence of God, I will do at each moment, without anxiety, according to the strength which He shall give me, the work that His Providence assigns me. I will leave the rest without concern; it is not my affair. I ought to consider the duty to which I am called each day, as the work that God has given me to do, and to apply myself to it in a manner worthy of His glory, that is to say, with exactness and in peace. I must neglect nothing; I must be violent about nothing.
FRANÇOIS DE LA MOTHE FÉNELON.
It is thy duty oftentimes to do what thou wouldst not; thy duty, too, to leave undone what thou wouldst do.
THOMAS À KEMPIS.

  • “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22

Verse of the Day

Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him. A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation. — Psalm 68:4-5 (NKJV)
