October 10 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

Now the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always by all means.–2 THESS. iii. 16.
_The Lord will give strength unto His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace_.–PS. xxix. 11.

In the heart’s depths a peace serene and holy Abides, and when pain seems to have its will, Or we despair,–oh, may that peace rise slowly, Stronger than agony, and we be still.
S. JOHNSON.
But if a man ought and is willing to lie still under God’s hand, he must and ought also to lie still under all things, whether they come from God, himself, or the creatures, nothing excepted. And he who would be obedient, resigned, and submissive to God, must and ought to be also resigned, obedient, and submissive to all things, in a spirit of yielding, and not of resistance; and take them in silence, resting on the hidden foundations of his soul, and having a secret inward patience, that enableth him to take all chances or crosses willingly; and, whatever befalleth, neither to call for nor desire any redress, or deliverance, or resistance, or revenge, but always in a loving, sincere humility to cry, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do!”
THEOLOGIA GERMANICA.
