October 6 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs

_I had fainted, unless I bad believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living_–PS. xxvii. 13.
I will surely do thee good.–GEN. xxxii. 12.

Thou know’st not what is good for thee, But God doth know,– Let Him thy strong reliance be, And rest thee so.
C. F. GELLERT.
Let us be very careful of thinking, on the one hand, that we have no work assigned us to do, or, on the other hand, that what we have assigned to us is not the right thing for us. If ever we can say in our hearts to God, in reference to any daily duty, “This is not my place; I would choose something dearer; I am capable of something higher;” we are guilty not only of rebellion, but of blasphemy. It is equivalent to saying, not only, “My heart revolts against Thy commands,” but “Thy commands are unwise; Thine Almighty guidance is unskilful; Thine omniscient eye has mistaken the capacities of Thy creature; Thine infinite love is indifferent to the welfare of Thy child.”
ELIZABETH CHARLES.
