• “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

Joy and Strength 05/23

When I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me.
Micah vii. 8.

When doubts disturb my troubled breast.
And all is dark as night to me,
Here, as on solid rock, I rest, —
That so it seemeth good to Thee.
Ray Palmer.

WHEN trouble, restless fears, anxious fretfulness, strive to overpower the soul, our safety is in saying, “My God, I believe in Thy perfect goodness and wisdom and mercy. What Thou doest I cannot now understand; but I shall one day see it all plainly. Meanwhile I accept Thy will, whatever it may be, unquestioning, without reserve.” There would be no restless disturbance, no sense of utter discomfort and discomposure in our souls, if we were quite free from any — it may be almost unconscious — opposition to God’s will. But we do struggle against it, we do resist; and so long as that resistance endures we cannot be at peace. Peace, and even joy, are quite compatible with a great deal of pain — even mental pain — but never with a condition of antagonism or resistance.
H. L. Sidney Lear.

Let him set his heart firmly upon this resolution: “I must bear it inevitably, and I will, by God’s grace, do it nobly.”
Jeremy Taylor.
