• “If we do not want those veils, He will clear them away. He has given us power of our wills. If the will be set towards beholding, looking, reflecting, then our Lord will see to the veils.” – Amy Carmichael

Joy and Strength 11/17

Whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world; and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
I John v. 4.

WHAT is victory over the world? It is to cut off, as far as we may, every hold which everything out of God has over us; to study wherein we are weak, and there seek in His strength to be made strong. Be your temptation the love of pleasure, it is to forego it; if of food, to restrain it; if of praise, to put forward others rather than yourself; if of being right in the sight of men, be content to be misjudged, and to keep silence; if of self-indulgence, use hardness; if of display, cut off the occasions and give to the poor; if of having thine own will, practice the submission of it to the wills of others.
Edward B. Pusey.

If we aspire to walk in the power of the new life, we must cast away all hindrances, and it must cost something we really value.
Charles G. Gordon.

The Faith presses upon man his noblest desires as obligations, and makes their attainment possible by the gift of the Spirit.
Brooke Foss Westcott.

Verse of the Day

Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain. — Philippians 2:14-16 (NKJV)
