Joy and Strength 10/18

Our light affliction,, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.
2 Cor. iv, 17.

Only be still, and wait His leisure
In cheerful hope, with heart content
To take whatever thy Father’s pleasure,
And all-discerning love hath sent;
Nor doubt our inmost wants are known
To Him who chose us for His own.
Georg Neumark, 1657.

OH, how IS the face of life altered, as soon as a man has in earnest made his first object to do his Father’s will! Oh, how do, what before seemed grievous burdens, bodily sickness, domestic trial, privations, losses, bereavement, the world’s scorn, man’s un-thankfulness, or whatever grief his Father may put upon him, how do these things change! To those, whose hope is in heaven, everything ^ becomes a means-of discipline, an instrument of strengthening their cheerful acceptance of their Father’s will. Their irksome tasks, privations, sickness, heaviness of heart, unkindness of others, and all the sorrows which their leather allots them in this world, are so many means of conforming them to their Saviour’s image. Then doth everything which God doeth with them seem to them “very good,” even because He doth it.
Edward B. Pusey.

  • “In case any are puzzled by the different translations from which I draw strength and help and delight, it is like this: In studying any object with the microscope we use different lenses and turn the mirror in various ways; each change brings out some new wonder and beauty. So it is for those who are not Greek or Hebrew scholars, and who use the work of scholars to open the meaning of the exhaustible Word–the Bible is richer than any single version can fully show.” – Amy Carmichael
