Joy and Strength 08/11

Thou hast given a banner to them that fear Thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth.
Ps. Ix. 4.

My cloud of battle-dust may dim,
His veil of splendor curtain Him;
And, in the midnight of my fear,
I may not feel Him standing near:
But, as I lift mine eyes above.
His banner over me is love.
Gerald Massey.

MY son, thou art never secure in this life, but, as long as thou livest, thou shalt always need spiritual armor. Thou oughtest manfully to go through all, and to use a strong hand against whatsoever with-standeth thee.
For to him that overcometh is manna given, and for the indolent there remaineth much misery.
Dispose not thyself for much rest, but for great patience.
Wait for the Lord, behave thyself manfully, and be of good courage ; do not distrust Him, do not leave thy place, but steadily expose both body and soul for the glory of God.
Thomas X Kempis.

  • “When human reason has exhausted every possibility, the children can go to their Father and receive all they need.…For only when you have become utterly dependent upon prayer and faith, only when all human possibilities have been exhausted, can you begin to reckon that God will intervene and work His miracles.” – Basilea Schlink

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. — James 3:17-18 (NKJV)
