November 20 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_Ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the–will of God, ye might receive the promise_.–HEB. x. 36.

Sweet Patience, come: Not from a low and earthly source,– Waiting, till things shall have their course,– Not as accepting present pain In hope of some hereafter gain,– Not in a dull and sullen calm,– But as a breath of heavenly balm, Bidding my weary heart submit To bear whatever God sees fit: Sweet Patience, come!
HYMNS OF THE CHURCH MILITANT.
Patience endues her scholars with content of mind, and evenness of temper, preventing all repining grumbling, and impatient desires, and inordinate affections; disappointments here are no crosses, and all anxious thoughts are disarmed of their sting; in her habitations dwell quietness, submission, and long-suffering, all fierce turbulent inclinations are hereby allayed. The eyes of the patient fixedly wait the inward power of God’s providence, and they are thereby mightily enabled towards their salvation and preservation.
THOMAS TRYON.

  • “Sin is more dangerous than wild bears, more deadly than blazing forest fires. Ask Nebuchadnezzar, who lost his mind because he refused to deal with his pride. Ask Samson, who was reduced to a pathetic shred of a man because he never got control over the lusts of his flesh. Ask Achan and Ananias and Sapphira, who all lost their lives over “small,” secret sins.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss
