• “Lead me, Lord, to the Rock that is higher than I. Let me hear your word, give me grace to obey, to build steadily, stone upon stone, day by day, to do what You say. Establish my heart where floods have no power to overwhelm, for Christ’s sake. Amen.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Joy and Strength 04/25

Truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord.
Micah iii. 8.

You, who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation,
1 Peter i. 4, 5.

THOU must not look so much at the evil that is nigh, but rather at that which stands ready to pity and help, — and which hath pitied and helped thy distressed soul, and will pity and help it again. Why is there a mercy-seat, but for the sinner to look towards in time of need ? Be patient till the Lord’s tender mercy and love visit thee again; and then, look up to Him against this and such like snares, which would come between thee and the appearance of the Lord’s love; that thou may-est feel more of His abidings with thee, and of the sweet effects thereof. For, these things are not to destroy thee, but to teach thee wisdom; which the Lord is able, through many exercises and sore trials, to bestow upon thee; that thy heart may be rid of all that burdeneth, and filled with all it rightly desires after, in the proper season and goodness of the Lord ; to whose wise ordering and tender mercy I commit thee.
Isaac Penington
