• “If my attitude be one of fear, not faith, about one who has disappointed me; if I say, ‘Just what I expected,’ if a fall occurs, then I know nothing of Calvary love.” – Amy Carmichael

October 11 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord.–NUM. xi. 1.

When thou hast thanked thy God For every blessing sent, What time will then remain For murmurs or lament?
R. C. TRENCH.
Let him, with a cheerful and thankful spirit, yield himself up to suffer whatever God shall appoint unto him, and to fulfil, according to his power, by the grace of God, all His holy will to the utmost that he can discern it, and never complain of his distresses but to God alone, with entire and humble resignation, praying that he may be strong to endure all his sufferings according to the will of God.
JOHN TAULER.
He who complains, or thinks he has a right to complain, because he is called in God’s Providence to suffer, has something within him which needs to be taken away. A soul whose will is lost in God’s will, can never do this. Sorrow may exist; but complaint never.
CATHERINE ADORNA.

  • “One of the most wonderful things about knowing God is that there’s always so much more to know, so much more to discover. Just when we least expect it, He intrudes into our neat and tidy notions about who He is and how He works.” – Joni Eareckson Tada
