Daily Remembrancer

"Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God." (2 Cor. 3:5)

LET us think of this, whenever we are cast down on account of our weakness, or the difficulties we meet with in our way. We are weak, but Jesus is strong; and His strength is made perfect in our weakness. He has given us His word, that He will work in us to will and to do of His own good pleasure. He speaks, and it is done.

The word of the Lord knows no obstacles or difficulties; all things must obey Him. When He sent Moses to Pharaoh, He said, "Certainly I will be with thee:" and the Lord's presence was his strength. He acts just so with us; His fullness is our sufficiency; it is opened to us in Jesus, and we receive from it according to our wants, weakness, and faith.

"Through God," said David, "I shall do valiantly."
"I can do all things," said Paul, "through Christ strengthening me."

Look not then at your own emptiness, or weakness; but look at what God is to His people, and what He has promised to give them, and sing,
"God is our refuge and strength; and as our days so shall our strength be."
"His grace is sufficient for us; His strength is made perfect in weakness."

Comment: I would add to those songs the verse 'those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.'

Thanks be to God.
