• “Many do not recognize the fact as they ought, that Satan has got men fast asleep in sin and that it is his great device to keep them so. He does not care what we do if he can do that. We may sing songs about the sweet by and by, preach sermons and say prayers until doomsday, and he will never concern himself about us, if we don’t wake anybody up. But if we awake the sleeping sinner he will gnash on us with his teeth. This is our work – to wake people up.” – Catherine Booth

Joy and Strength 09/28

Even to your old age, I am He; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you; I have made, and I will hear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.
Isa. xlvi. 4.

The chariots of God are twenty thousand^ even thousands of angels; the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.
Ps. Ixviii. 17.

I HAVE not a shadow of doubt that if all our eyes could be opened to-day, we should see our homes, and our places of’business, and the streets we traverse, filled with the ” chariots of God.” There is no need for any one of us to walk for lack of chariots. That cross inmate of your household, who has hitherto made life a burden to you, and who has been the Juggernaut car to crush your soul into the dust, may henceforth be a glorious chariot to carry you to the heights of heavenly patience and long-suffering. That misunderstanding, that mortification, that unkindness, that disappointment, that loss, that defeat, — all these are chariots waiting to carry you to the very heights of victory you have so longed to reach. Mount into them, then, with thankful hearts, and lose sight of all second causes in the shining of His love who will carry you in His arms safely and triumphantly over it all.
Hannah Whitall Smith
