February 6 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

Whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.–PROV. xxix. 25.
_I will cry unto God most high; unto God, that performeth all things for me_.–PS. lvii. 2.

Only thy restless heart keep still, And wait in cheerful hope; content To take whate’er His gracious will, His all-discerning love hath sent; Nor doubt our inmost wants are known To Him who chose us for His own.
G. NEUMARK.
God has brought us into this time; He, and not ourselves or some dark demon. If we are not fit to cope with that which He has prepared for us, we should have been utterly unfit for any condition that we imagine for ourselves. In this time we are to live and wrestle, and in no other. Let us humbly, tremblingly, manfully look at it, and we shall not wish that the sun could go back its ten degrees, or that we could go back with it. If easy times are departed, it is that the difficult times may make us more in earnest; that they may teach us not to depend upon ourselves. If easy belief is impossible, it is that we may learn what belief is, and in whom it is to be placed.
F. D. MAURICE.
