May 16 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might_.–EPH. vi. 10.
No man can serve two masters.–MATT. vi. 24.

Oh, there are heavenly heights to reach In many a fearful place, Where the poor timid heir of God Lies blindly on his face; Lies languishing for grace divine That he shall never see Till he go forward at Thy sign, And trust himself to Thee.
A. L. WARING.
Reservations lie latent in the mind concerning some unhallowed sentiments or habits in the present, some possibly impending temptations in the future; and thus do we cheat ourselves of inward and outward joys together. We give up many an indulgence for conscience’ sake, but stop short at that point of entire faithfulness wherein conscience could reward us. If we would but give ourselves wholly to God,–give up, for the present and the future, every act, and, above all, every thought and every feeling, to be all purified to the uttermost, and rendered the best, noblest, holiest we can conceive,–then would sacrifice bear with it a peace rendering itself, I truly believe, far easier than before.
F. P. COBBE.
