Joy and Strength 09/13

The peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Phil. iv. 7.

I TAKE Thee for my Peace, O Lord,
My heart to keep and fill;
Thine own great calm, amid earth’s storms,
Shall keep me always still.
And as Thy Kingdom doth increase.
So shall Thine ever-deepening peace.
Annie W. Marston

REMEMBER this, busy and burdened disciple; man or woman tried by uncertain health; immersed in secular duties; forced a life of almost ceaseless publicity. Here is written an assurance, a guarantee, that not at holy times and welcome intervals only, not only the dust of death, but in the dust of life, there is prepared for you the peace of God, le to keep your hearts and thoughts in Christ Jesus. It is found in Him, it is cultivated by intercourse with Him. It is “the secret His presence.” Amidst the circumstances of your life, which are the expression of His will, He can maintain it. He can keep you in it. Nay, it is not passive; it “shall keep” you, alive, and loving, and practical, and ready at His call.
Handley C. G. Moule

  • “Experience has taught me that the Shepherd is far more willing to show His sheep the path than the sheep are to follow. He is endlessly merciful, patient, tender, and loving. If we, His stupid and wayward sheep, really want to be led, we will without fail be led. Of that I am sure.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Verse of the Day

[The Day of the Lord] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, — 2 Peter 3:10-11 (NKJV)
