Joy and Strength 08/04

In His love and in His pity He redeemed them.
Isa. Ixiii. 9.

Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear Him.
Ps. ciii. 13.

God only knows the love of God:
Oh, that it now were shed abroad
In this poor stony heart;
For love I sigh, for love I pine;
This only portion, Lord, be mine,
Be mine this better part.
Charles Wesley.

DON’T measure God’s mind by your own. It would be a poor love that depended not on itself, but on the feelings of the person loved. A crying baby turns away from its mother’s breast, but she does not put it away till it stops crying. She holds it closer. For my part, in the worst mood I am ever in, when I don’t feel I love God at all, I just look up to His love. I say to Him, “Look at me. See what state I am in. Help me! Ah! you would wonder how that makes peace. And the love comes of itself; sometimes so strong, it nearly breaks my heart.
George Macdonald.

He dpes not love us because we are so lovely, but because He always loves what He pities.
Elizabeth Prentiss

“The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it? I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings. — Jeremiah 17:9-10 (NKJV)
