• “Where does your security lie? Is God your refuge, your hiding place, your stronghold, your shepherd, your counselor, your friend, your redeemer, your saviour, your guide? If He is, you don’t need to search any further for security.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Joy and Strength 12/19

And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
Isa. XXX. 21.

The ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them.
Hosea xiv. 9.

Yet more and more this truth doth shine
From failure and from loss,
The will that runs transverse to
Thine Doth thereby make its cross:
Thine upright will Cuts straight and still
Through pride and dream and dross.
W. M. L. Jay.

LET us remember that it is not God who makes many of the crosses that we find in our way, such as we commonly call “crosses.” Our Heavenly Father makes “straight paths for our feet,” and, if we would go in His way, if we would straighten our wills to His will, and lay them side by side, there would be no crosses. But when the path that God points out goes north and south, and our stubborn wills lead us east and west, the consequence is “a cross ” — a cross of our own making, not that which our Master bids us “take up and carry after Him,” and of which it has been well said, “He always carries the heaviest end Himself?.”

  • “If we do anything to further the kingdom of God, we may expect to find what Christ found on that road – abuse, indifference, injustice, misunderstanding, trouble of some kind. Take it. Why not? To that you were called. If we think of the glorious fact that we are on the same path with Jesus, we might see a rainbow.” – Elisabeth Elliot
