• “Many do not recognize the fact as they ought, that Satan has got men fast asleep in sin and that it is his great device to keep them so. He does not care what we do if he can do that. We may sing songs about the sweet by and by, preach sermons and say prayers until doomsday, and he will never concern himself about us, if we don’t wake anybody up. But if we awake the sleeping sinner he will gnash on us with his teeth. This is our work – to wake people up.” – Catherine Booth

October 13 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_We desire that every one of you do show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end_.–HEB. vi. 11.
The Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.–2 THESS. iii. 3.

Long though my task may be, Cometh the end. God’t is that helpeth me, His is the work, and He New strength will lend.
ANON.
Set yourself steadfastly to those duties which have the least attractive exterior; it matters not whether God’s holy will be fulfilled in great or small matters. Be patient with yourself and your own failings; never be in a hurry, and do not yield to longings after that which is impossible to you. My dear sister, go on steadily and quietly; if our dear Lord means you to run, He will “strengthen your heart.”
ST. FRANCIS DE SALES.
Always begin by doing that which costs me most, unless the easier duty is a pressing one. Examine, classify, and determine at night the work of the morrow; arrange things in the order of their importance, and act accordingly. Dread, above all things, bitterness and irritation. Never say, or indirectly recall anything to my advantage.
MADAME SWET CHINE,

  • “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22
