The Believer's Daily Remembrancer
Devotional: July 11th
HOWEVER hot the war, or sore the trial, we may be sure of this, that "as our day, so shall our strength be." God has promised, and He will give. He gives because they are His people, as the father to His children, because He has covenanted to do so, and He is faithful; lest their foes should triumph over them, whereas He has said, "They shall overcome at the last." He has raised their expectations, and He will not disappoint them; He has commanded them to pray, and He will not refuse. He will give strength sufficientenough, but perhaps none to sparesuitable to their circumstances and wants. Has the Lord pledged Himself to give strength to His people; yea, to be Himself their strength? Then let us fight courageously, look forward joyfully, bear every cross patiently, pray fervently, praise daily, and believe confidently. God hath spokensaints in every age have found Him a truth-telling, promise-performing GodSatan is a liar, a deceiver, a false witness against Godlet us therefore resist him, and he will flee from us. The strong God will be our support in every trial.
Give me Thy strength, O God of power;
Then let winds blow, or thunders roar,
Thy faithful witness will I be:
'Tis fix'd: I can do all through Thee:
Fulfil Thy sovereign counsel, Lord,
Thy will be done. Thy name adored!
