Joy and Strength 07/17

Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.
Isa. xxvi. 4.

Come, children, let us go!
Our Father is our guide;
And when the way grows steep and dark.
He journeys at our side.
Our spirits He would cheer,
The sunshine of His love
Revives and helps us as we rove.
Ah, blest our lot e’en here!
Gerhard Tersteegen.

WE are living out these lives of ours too much apart from God. We toil on dismally, as if the making or the marring of our destinies rested wholly with ourselves. It is not so. We are not the lonely, orphaned creatures we let ourselves suppose ourselves to be. The earth, rolling on its way through space, does not go unattended. The Maker and Controller of it is with it, and around it, and upon it. He is with us here and now. He knows us infinitely more thoroughly than we know ourselves. He loves us better than we have ever dared to believe could be possible.
William R. Huntington.

Some of us believe that God is all mighty, and may do all; and that He is all wisdom, and can do all; but that He is all love, and will do all, there we fail.
Mother Juliana

  • “He will enable you to overcome the giants in your temperament …He allows adversity and trial in our lives in order to reveal our true nature to us. Thus He humbles us and breaks us, so that He can transform us into His likeness.” – Annie Poonen
