• “They only did what God permitted them to do, which enabled me always to keep God in sight… When we suffer, we should always remember that God inflicts the blow. Wicked men, it is true, are not infrequently His instruments; and the fact does not diminish, but simply develops their wickedness. But when we are so mentally disposed that we love the strokes we suffer, regarding them as coming from God, and as expressions of what He sees best for us, we are then in the proper state to look forgivingly and kindly upon the subordinate instrument which He permits to smite us.” – Madame Guyon

Joy and Strength 05/24

Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto Thee.
Ps. cxliii. 8.

I will guide thee with mine eye.
Ps. xxxii. 8.

Teach me to do the thing that pleaseth Thee;
Thou art my God, in Thee I live and move;
Oh, let Thy loving Spirit lead me forth
Into the land of righteousness and love.
J. B. S. MONSELL.

THE minds that are alive to every word from God, give constant opportunity for His divine interference with a suggestion that may alter the courses of their lives ; and, like the ships that turn when the steersman’s hand but touches the helm, God can steer them through the worst dangers by the faintest breath of feeling, or the lightest touch of thought.
Richard H. Hutton.

It is no delusion, no dream of a hot brain, no error of a too confiding soul, that has made the children of God delight to trust in His Providential aid. When God, in deed and in truth, is present and dominant in the soul of a man. He can, and He will give to that soul a real guidance. He will guide it, with the guidance of an eye that seeth and foreseeth, — that knoweth what is best for us and the world, and leadeth us in that way wherein, for our sakes, and the world’s, it is best for us to go.
Henry Septimus Sutton
