lows and the palms into the presence of the Lord. . . . If there is any willow in your life, then God can -use it ,for your good and His glory. —Herbert Lockyer. 10. His Grace “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you” (2 Cor. 9:8). His grace is great enough to meet the great things— The crashing waves that overwhelm the soul, The r o a r i n g winds that leave us stunned and breathless, The sudden storms beyond our life’s control. His grace is great enough to meet the small things— The little pin-prick troubles that annoy, The insect worries, buzzing and per­ sistent, The squeaking wheels that grate upon our joy. —Annie Johnson Flint. 11. God's Infinite Care of Details “Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Fa­ ther . . . ye are of more value than many sparrows” (Matt. 10:29, 31). A party of people stood on the Mat­ terhorn, Switzerland, admiring the beauty of the scenery. One of the party produced a microscope, caught a fly, and let the members of the party look at that mountain fly. They noticed that God had provided for that fly socks and mittens for his feet. Flies in warm climates are without these. If God does that for His tiny creatures, will He not also provide for me, His child? —Fred Hartley Wight.* 12. "The Lord Our Righteousness" “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us . . . right­ eousness” (1 Cor. 1:30). Abide in Christ as your righteous­ ness. You bear about with you a na­ ture altogether corrupt and vile, ever seeking to rise up and darken your sense of acceptance, and of access to unbroken fellowship with the Father. Nothing can enable you to walk and dwell in the light of God, without even the shadow of a cloud between, but the habitual abiding in Christ as your righteousness . . . Live your daily life in the full consciousness of being righteous in God’s sight, an object of delight and pleasure in Christ. . . . So shall your inmost being be trans­ formed into being righteous and doing righteousness.—Andrew Murray. *Reprinted from Nature Sermons by special permission of Zdndervan Pub.

13. God's Design “In my prosperity I said, I s h a l l never be moved. Lord, by thy favor thou hast made my mountain to stand strong; thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled” (Psa. 30:6, 71. How soon is our worldly happiness interrupted, even when we think our­ selves past all hazards and fears of change! . . . No man ever slept upon a carnal pillow but had his rest dis­ turbed before his nap was over. It is tedious for us to think of such a mu­ table condition; but let us look upon God’s design in it. God ordereth it that we may always think of our re­ moval, and prepare ourselves to rest in our proper place.—Thomas Manton. 14. Crumbs or a Loaf? “That ye might be filled with aH the flikiess of 'God” (Eph. 3:19). Is your life what you want it to be? I hear people sometimes say in prayer meeting, “I want a few crumbs from the Master’s table.” Well, you may have them if you want to; crumbs are good for cats and dogs; but I am going for the whole loaf. The Lord doesn’t want His people to live on crumbs; He is longing to give them a whole loaf.—D. L. Moody. 15. Left in the Lurch “Demás hath forsaken me, having loved this present w o r l d ” (2 Tim. 4:10). A m o r e literal translation is: “Demás hath left me in the lurch." In this most expressive- statement a great spiritual tragedy is related. A man has allowed some subtle influ­ ence to o v e r p o w e r the claims of Christ in his life. . . . This is no sudden thing. Yieldings are at first imper­ ceptible. One always intends to stop short of a compromise, •but before he knows it, he has arrived at a new viewpoint by fooling his own reason. He begins with toleratioij—ends with leaving Christ in the lurch: —Keith L. Brooks. 16. Disentangled Hearts “No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life” (2 Tim. 2:4). The apostle, does not say, “No man that warreth engages in the affairs of this life.” The grand point is to keep the heart disentangled. God’s warriors must have free hearts, and the only way io be free is to cast all our care, upon Him who careth for us. I can stand in the battlefield with a free heart when I have placed my house, my vineyard, and my wife, in the divine keeping. —J. Gregory Mantle. 17. God Will Not Change “For I am the Lord, I change not” (Mai. ,3:6). ... ..... ,
