May 22 Handling Weakness!

When I want to do good, evil is right there with me.
(Romans 7:21, NIV)

Become an enemy of your weakness; make it your target, or it’ll become your taskmaster! When Samson awoke in the lap of Delilah, he’d lost his anointing. His next step was a dungeon. The battle of your life is always between your strength and your weakness. Listen: “These two forces within us are constantly fighting each other to win control over us” (Galatians 5:17, TLB). Nobody’s exempt. Your struggles may be different from mine, but we’re all on the battlefield.

If you think you can indulge your weakness today and just walk away from it tomorrow, you’re deceiving yourself; your weakness has a will of its own. Paul said, “When I would do good, evil is present with me” (Romans 7:21). Your weakness plans to destroy you. Listen: “Sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death” (James 1:15). Every time you justify your weakness, it rejoices, knowing that it will eventually get you.

But there’s good news; God will give you the power to overcome! After his failure, Jesus told Peter, “Satan hath desired to have you … but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not” (Luke 22:31–32). You’re not alone! He’s interceding on your behalf! He also said, “Behold, I give unto you power … over all the power of the enemy” (Luke 10:19).


Reach for that power today and live the life of an overcomer![1]

May 22 Life-Changing Moments With God

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.

Eternal God, the world is passing away, and the lust of it. Surely I walk about like a shadow; surely I busy myself in vain; I heap up riches, and do not know who will gather them. What fruit did I have then in the things of which I am now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.

Like Martha, I am worried and troubled about many things. But like Mary one thing is needed, and that good part will not be taken away. You want me to be without care.

These things You have spoken to me, that in You I may have peace. In the world I will have tribulation; but I can be of good cheer, You have overcome the world. You, the Lord of peace, give me peace always in every way. You, Lord, bless me and keep me; You make Your face shine upon me, and are gracious to me; You lift up Your countenance upon me, and give me peace.

May I focus on Jesus rather than on the fading things and the tribulations of this world.

May—22 The Poor Man’s Evening Portion

And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.—Isaiah 42:16.

Never, surely, was there a promise of a covenant God in Christ more strikingly fulfilled as to what is said in the former part of this verse, than in thine instance, my soul. By nature and by practice, thou wert so totally blind to any apprehension of divine things, that not a right thought hadst thou ever conceived of God and Christ, when the Lord first manifested his grace to thy heart! No being in the universe was so near to me as God, but none so little known or understood. No heart was nearer to me than my own, but to all its errors and deceitfulness I remained the most perfect stranger! In the works of providence, as well as of grace, I had no consciousness whatever of any guide, nor even of needing a guide. Self-willed, wayward, and full of confidence, I was hastening on with the multitude, intent but upon one thing, “in making provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.” Pause, my soul, and look back! When I take a review of what is past, and trace the hand of the Lord, all the way leading me as I have come on, I am lost in astonishment in the contemplation of his mercies and my undeservings. What a huge volume might be written of both, and in the margin to note down how they have kept pace together. My soul! if thou wert to read them by chapters only, what endless ones would they form under the several sections of the Lord’s love, his care, his wisdom, his methods, and his grace, in the freeness and distinguishing nature of that grace; and as I read the Lord’s mercies, to note, at the same time, my rebellions! Oh! what a subject would the whole form, in proof of this gracious promise, in viewing the wisdom, power, and love of God, in awakening, regenerating, converting, and confirming grace! Surely, Lord, thou hast indeed brought a poor blind creature, such as I am, in a way that I knew not, and led me in paths that I never should have known; and still, Lord, thou art graciously performing the same, in making darkness light, and crooked things straight. And shall I not, from the latter part of this sweet promise, derive a strength of faith, from all that is past, to trust thee for all that is to come? Hath the Lord been gracious, when in a state of total blindness, to bring me by a way I knew not; and now, when he hath mercifully opened mine eyes to see his glory, and to love his name, will he not lead me still? Had he mercy upon me, when I asked it not, neither knew that I needed it; and will he refuse me that mercy now, when I so earnestly seek it, and know that without his grace and mercy in Jesus, I shall perish for ever? Precious Lord! give me faith to believe, to trust, and to depend! Thou who hast done such great things for me already, whereof I rejoice, wilt never leave me, nor forsake me, O Lord God of my salvation![1]

Obamagate: Of Course It Comes Back to Obama’s Narcissism | The American Spectator

Lee Smith’s article in Tablet, titled “How Russiagate Began With Obama’s Iran Deal Domestic Spying Campaign,” pieces together why President Obama warned then incoming President Donald Trump away from Michael Flynn. It explains why Flynn was investigated. It all fits.

At the bottom of the Russian hoax story is a tale of narcissism: Hillary Clinton’s shock at losing the election, the media’s shock at being wrong and less capable of manipulation that they thought, and, importantly, Barack Obama’s shock that his priorities — all of them, but most of all the Iran Deal — would be swept away as so much ideological detritus. Like Saruman watching the Ents loose the dams and flood Isengard, the Obama administration knew that Michael Flynn would ruin their edifice, so they had to ruin him. Please do go read Smith’s piece.

The obvious reaction to the article is, Of course. Of course, this had to all come back to Obama’s inflated self-view. Of course, the administration was in a pure panic because Michael Flynn could deftly navigate the intelligence community backwaters and could point President Trump in the right direction to … drain  the swamp.

What’s so distressing is that President Obama and his enablers have succeeded. The torment continues. They effectively obstructed the Trump administration, and Congress helped them.

Not only did the Obama administration use every tool in their arsenal, most of them illegal at worst and damn shady at best, but they also had the media on their side. The media’s reputation was tied to Obama’s. Their cheerleading proved their own value. He was, after all, a media creation. He had to succeed or they would be revealed as fools and neophyte-enabling stooges.

And don’t forget Hillary, the creator of the Russia collusion hoax narrative. After her ignominious fit-throwing evening where she didn’t have the decency to face her supporters, she immediately began a string of confabulation to justify her loss. She had to find a boogey man to avoid any blame for a winnable election. It was her DNC and her dossier, via John McCain to the FBI, that got the ball officially rolling. Fusion GPS (former reporters who had lots of media connections), the FBI and DOJ, and, we learned this week, President Obama himself all knew about this nonsense because of their surveillance of Flynn. John McCain was just either the willing dupe or was in on the drive to destabilize the Trump presidency at the beginning.

That brings us to the Republicans in the House and Senate who aided and abetted this charade to hamstring a president they feared and loathed. To John McCain, these voters were hobbits. To Hillary Clinton, they were “deplorables.” Tomato, tomahto. Now, Lindsey Graham and Trey Gowdy trip over themselves to explain their previous prevaricating, when they knew that this “Russian collusion” story was intended to distract from the truth: that the Obama administration was using every arm of the government for political ends. What did they care? If it slowed down the Republican agenda, the platform that they paid lip service to but secretly despise, more the better.

The GOP wasted two years throwing sand into the gears of their own governance to not do what they promised to voters. Opportunities to repeal Obamacare or firm up border security or a myriad of other initiatives were frittered away because the GOP cared more about donor backing than fulfilling the will of the voters. Not only were they caught unprepared by a Republican winning, but they meant none of their rhetoric and so prepared for nothing because they wanted to fail.

Ultimately, none of this could have happened without a corruption machine by President Obama already operating at full throttle. For eight years, the administration used every branch of the government to torment their enemies. Lee Smith lays out beautifully the surveillance of American Jews in opposition to the Iran deal. But that was just the end of a long history of abuse. Obama and his cronies used the IRS, EPA, and nearly every agency you can imagine to target and harass conservatives, if not through active investigations, extraneous inspections, phone calls, and threats, then through egregious regulations.

The GOP establishment enjoyed this harassment. It interfered with difficult primaries they faced by fed-up Republican activists and used the force of government to ruin lives. Uncle Sam on a power bender is much more effective at destroying opposition than millions spent in negative ads.

Unlike Republicans, Democrats aren’t squeamish about an Uncle Sam leviathan. They’ll ride that beast to destroy their enemies. And boy, did they. It’s still going. The upper echelons of the FBI and DOJ operate to this writing unmolested. Any work that Michael Flynn could have done to clean up this intelligence community was stymied by a made-up investigation.

For three years, the Trump administration attempted to find their sea legs while actively being harassed and harried by Obama holdovers and self-dealing Republicans in the House and Senate. None of this could have happened so easily had Congress provided oversight. Why would they want oversight, though? It would expose themselves. It wasn’t just Joe Biden’s crackhead kid in Ukraine, after all. Sens. John Kerry, John McCain, and, yes, Lindsey Graham, also had strange relationships there, too. It’s like Ukraine was one big money laundering scheme for political insiders.

A lot of pols have a lot to hide, and that’s why this fiasco has gone on as long as it has. Hillary Clinton was supposed to win. No one would have ever known, and the evil would have continued. It has been three years of pain and anxiety on the part of politicians in both parties knowing that the people who elected Trump are not cynical insiders but those who believe that there is right and wrong and that there should be a system that treats all equally. That bodes ill for a whole bunch of people on the wrong side of the law.

After reading Smith’s article, though, I was left with a question that I had during the Obama administration and I still have today: Why? Why did President Obama pick terrorist fomenting Iran as his legacy? Anti-semitism? Globalism? Marxist fellow-traveler sympathy?

What’s so distressing is that President Obama and his enablers have succeeded. The torment continues. They effectively obstructed the Trump administration, and Congress helped them. How many unfilled administration positions remain to this day because Trump has never had the benefit of recess appointments like every other president? How much time has been spent by Trump to defend himself rather than just get on with the business of presiding? How did the conspiratorial lies taint President Trump’s ability to present new ideas and get a fair hearing? President Trump received no grace, not even a minute of hopeful reservation.

President Obama, Hillary Clinton, the media, and the feckless and, dare one say, colluding GOP leadership denied Trump voters their vote. They disenfranchised half the country. There can be no recompense for this grievous wrong. A pox on all their houses. The American system isn’t equipped to handle this level of injustice. Those who wait on justice likely wait in futility.

May 22 Ninety-Two Bananas

Philippians 4:19

God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

The prophet Jeremiah and the apostle Paul discovered the same thing about prayer: When our hearts are right, God delights to give us more than we asked for. In Jeremiah 33:3, the Lord said, “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” In Ephesians 3:20, Paul said that God “is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think.”

In her autobiography, Evidence Not Seen, missionary Darlene Diebler tells of being near starvation in a Japanese POW camp. Through her window she saw in the distance a banana. “Lord,” she prayed, “just one banana.” But she couldn’t see how God could get her a banana through prison walls.

The next day she heard footsteps coming down the hall and the key turning in the door of her cell. In walked a guard with a bunch of bananas. “They’re yours,” he said. She sat down in stunned silence and counted them. There were ninety-two bananas!

As Darlene wept and thanked the Lord, she seemed to hear Him say in her heart, “That’s what I delight to do, exceeding abundantly above everything you ask or think.” [1]

Congressman Rand Paul, Andy Biggs: If we keep listening to Fauci, there won’t be an America to reopen | LifeZette

Congressman Rand Paul and Andy Biggs published an op-ed in which they call out Dr. Anthony Fauci, warning that if the White House coronavirus task force member has his way, there won’t be an America to reopen.

The column, appearing in USA Today, slams Fauci as out of touch, unaware or unwilling to see how Americans are suffering due to the economic shutdown.

“Fauci persists in advocating policies that have emasculated the medical care system and ruined the economy,” they said, citing models that have proven wrong time and again.

“Anthony Fauci wants America closed until there’s nothing to reopen,” they write.

Rep Andy Biggs


.@realDonaldTrump has expressed a desire to restore our economic greatness and the positives that come w/ it — including better public health — by opening up our communities.

We must forge ahead even as Fauci tries to brush away the optimism. https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2020/05/21/rand-paul-andy-biggs-anthony-fauci-reopening-coronavirus-column/5225769002/  @RandPaul

Paul V. Fauci

Paul has been absolutely eviscerating Fauci at every turn. Though, as he and Biggs note, they respect his “service to our country and medical opinion.”

Earlier this week, the Kentucky Republican shared a link to a chart showing the coronavirus death rate is similar to the seasonal flu for people under 60.

He added the caption, “Paging Dr. Fauci.”

During questioning and testimony before the Senate last week, Paul referred to blanket lockdowns implemented by many states through advice doled out by Fauci as “kind of ridiculous.”

“I don’t think you’re the end-all,” said Paul. “I don’t think you’re the one person that gets to make the decision. We can listen to your advice, but there are people on the other side saying there’s not going to be a surge.”

What About Those Suffering Financially?

The USA Today op-ed goes on to address comments made by Fauci before Congress that serve little more than to scare the American people and their local leaders into overreacting.

“There is a real risk that you will trigger an outbreak that you might not be able to control … not only leading to some suffering and death that could be avoided, but could even set you back on the road to trying to get economic recovery,” Fauci claimed.

States such as Georgia and Florida have proven him wrong thus far.

“What about the countless stories of needless suffering and death produced by Fauci’s one-size-fits-all approach to public health?” Biggs and Paul ask.

The congressmen concluded, “We must forge ahead even as Fauci tries to brush away the optimism of the president and the American people.”

It’s time this charade ends – with or without the blessing of Dr. Fauci.

Controversy Erupts After Biden Tells Black Voters Considering Trump “You Ain’t Black” | ZeroHedge News

Joe Biden just massively insulted black voters – telling a popular black radio host on Friday that he ‘ain’t black’ if he was still weighing whether to support Biden or Trump in the November election.

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black.”

Biden’s comment came during an interview with “The Breakfast Club” host Charlamagne tha God, who challenged the former VP over his decades-long record on racial issues and asked him about possibly choosing a black, female running mate, according to Politico.

“I’m not acknowledging anybody who is being considered, but I guarantee you, there are multiple black women being considered. Multiple,” said Biden of his (handlers’) search for a VP nominee.

It was then that an aide to the Biden campaign could be heard interjecting into the conversation, attempting to cut short the interview.“Thank you so much. That’s really our time. I apologize,” the aide said.

You can’t do that to black media!” Charlamagne retored.

“I do that to white media and black media because my wife has to go on at 6 o’clock,” Biden shot back, apparently referring to a subsequent media appearance by Dr. Jill Biden, before adding: “Uh oh. I’m in trouble.”

“Listen, you’ve got to come see us when you come to New York, VP Biden,” Charlamagne said. “It’s a long way until November. We’ve got more questions.”

“You’ve got more questions?” Biden replied. “Well I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.

Charlamagne explained that “it don’t have nothing to do with Trump, it has to do with the fact [that] I want something for my community.” But Biden remained adamant in promoting what he described as a career of public service devoted to advancing civil rights. –Politico

Needless to say, while Biden’s comment will probably go unnoticed by his MSM surrogates, it hasn’t slipped past Twitter users:

The Mortification of Sin – Modernized Version — Possessing the Treasure

by Mike Ratliff

Several years ago I did a series on John Owen’s wonderful book, The Mortification of Sin. While a great number of people participated in that study they also struggled with John Owen’s 17th Century English. He was a wonderful preacher of God’s Word and a gifted teacher. He was also mightily used by God throughout his ministry, but in our time what he was teaching seems to have been largely ignored and lost. I have so many believers contact me wanting to know how to deal with their besetting sins and their inability to turn away or kill some sin problem. John Owen had the answer, which, of course, comes directly from God’s Word.

We all have seasons in our walk down the narrow path in this pilgrimage. I too find myself struggling with old sins that I thought were long dead at times. That is when I have to get back into the battle. Yes, it is a battle. After all, part of it is putting on that spiritual armor so we can walk in the spirit isn’t it?

To kill or mortify our sin we must rely on the Holy Spirit to do His work. We have to get into the mode of being Spirit-led and in so doing the Holy Spirit will transform us and drain the life from our besetting sins. This is a simplified analysis of Owen’s treatise. Here is a link to the modernized version of his book. I have it on my Kindle and am rereading it. It is very good and I suggest you all do this.

In Mother’s Day Message, Laodicean Heretic Paula White ‘Preached’ About Doing Ritual Sex Dance Of The Queen Bee On The White House Lawn — Now The End Begins

Paula White, and all her fellow sideshow freaks like TD Jakes, Creflo Dollar, Joel Osteen, Kenneth Copeland, Todd Bentley do not preach biblical Christianity and they do not present the blood-bought salvation of the gospel of the grace of God.

I understand that the professing Christian Church is well into the falling away mentioned by the apostle Paul in 2 Thessalonians, and I understand that Jesus tells us that the last state Christian Church on earth before the Rapture is the lukewarm Laodicean Church that has locked Him outside the door. I mean, I truly “get it” about all these prophecies of the last days we now find ourselves in. But what is hard to wrap my head around is not falling away, it is that there seems to be no bottom to it as you will see with Paula White ‘preaching’ the Queen Bee ritual sex dance sermon in today’s video.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first,…” 2 Thessalonians 2:3a (KJB)

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 4:3,4 (KJB)

I found this video on a site called the Friendly Atheist, and as you can see when you watch it, it is mind numbing to say the least. And when the atheist who wrote the article you will read below is scratching their head wondering why anyone would be attracted to the brand of “christianity” that Paula White preaches, I actually side with the atheists on this one. I get that, too.  If Christianity was what Paula White presents it as, I would never, in a million years, have signed on to it.


Paula White, and all her fellow sideshow freaks like Jim BakkerTD JakesCreflo DollarJoel OsteenKenneth CopelandTodd Bentley do not preach biblical Christianity and they do not present the blood-bought salvation of the gospel of the grace of God. They are all charlatans and ‘bag holders’ who pervert the gospel for personal profit. You will never see an atheist getting saved from any of their messages, and that’s the real shame of these phonies.

But perhaps the most damaging document, proving ties to Italy, is the recently released Crossfire Hurricane launch letter.  This document is what started it all.  The alleged, and now known to be a hoax about ties between President Trump and Russia, which culminated in the Mueller Special Counsel, started with this document.  Many in Italy believe this document proves Obamagate started in Europe, and more specifically in Italy.

Occhionero believes that the launch letter begins in Italy.  Much of the document is still redacted [again no doubt only to cover for the criminals] so we really don’t know, yet, who the document specifically refers to.  However, if the document is referring to Italy, we have strong belief that it refers to LEGAT or Legal Attache Kieran Ramsey.  Occhionero has claimed that Ramsey would not testify at his trial and believes this is because he is hiding something.

We reported on Ramsey previously and noted that he is being requested to be interviewed by the Senate.

The Crossfire Hurricane launch letter begins with this:

(S/ /REL TO USA[Redacted] On Wednesday, July 27, 2016, Legal Attaché (Legat) [Redacted] was summoned to the Office of the Deputy Chief of Mission (DCM) for the [Redacted] who will be leaving [Redacted] post Saturday July 30, 2016 and set to soon thereafter retire from government service, advised [Redacted] was called by [Redacted] about an urgent matter requiring an in person meeting with the U.S. Ambassador. [Note: [Redacted]. The [Redacted] was scheduled to be away from post until mid-August, therefore [Redacted] attended the meeting.

If the incident occurred in Italy, the LEGAT was Ramsey.  Barbara on Twitter points out that the Holy See (i.e. Catholic Church in Rome, Italy) had a change in the Chief of Mission in July 2016:

OMG! Feckless Clown Dr. Fauci NOW SAYS Staying Closed Too Long Could Cause “Irreparable Damage” — AFTER USING JUNK MODEL TO DESTROY ECONOMY! — The Gateway Pundit


As we know from previous reporting:

** Dr. Tony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx used the Imperial College Model to persuade President Trump to lock down the ENTIRE US ECONOMY.
** The fraudulent model predicted 2.2 million American deaths from the coronavirus pandemic
** The authors of the Imperial College Model shared their findings with the White House Coronavirus task force in early March
** Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx then met with President Trump privately and urged him to shut down the US and destroy the record Trump economy based on this model
** New analysis of the Imperial College Model finds the study is “completely unusable for scientific purposes” — The Imperial College study was a complete sham
** Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx pushed a garbage model on the White House and the American public and destroyed the US economy

As reported weeks ago — in mid April Dr. Fauci admitted that it was he and Dr. Birx who persuaded President Trump to lock down the US economy knowing the massive destruction this would cause in jobs, lives and commerce.

President admitted that during a press conference in April that “two very smart people” came into his office and urged him to lock down the economy or 2.2 million Americans would die from the China virus.

This guy has been wrong nearly every step of the way.

After Dr. Birx and Dr. Fauci sat with the president the US went into lockdown and since that time over 39 MILLION Americans have lost their jobs and thousands of companies have gone bankrupt.

In late March, Neil Ferguson, who was behind the Imperial College coronavirus study, backtracked and said 20,000 Brits may die from the coronavirus instead of his original estimates of 500,000.

Neil Ferguson resigned from his government post as researcher a week ago after he was caught breaking his own lockdown rules by meeting with his married mistress at his home.

Now we have evidence that Neil Ferguson’s model was complete trash.

Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx ran with it anyway — without any facts or comparisons.
They never got a second opinion!

This was not science — it was raw emotion and panic!

Now we are facing massive unemployment and poverty over a virus the CDC now says has a fatality rate similar to the 1957-1958 flu pandemic.

On Friday Dr. Tony Fauci finally backtracked from his previous statements.

Dr. Fauci told CNBC — Staying closed too long could cause “irreparable damage!”

‘Arrogant, Condescending, Outrageous’ – Senator Tim Scott, Black Voters Respond to Biden’s “You Ain’t Black” Comment (VIDEO) — The Gateway Pundit

It’s not racist if a Democrat says it.

Joe Biden appeared on the The Breakfast Club hosted by Charlamagne Tha God on Friday morning and told the black community, “you ain’t black” if they don’t vote for him over President Trump.

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump then you ain’t Black,” said Biden.

Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) said Biden’s comment was “the most arrogant, condescending comment I’ve heard in a very long time.”

“He’s saying that 1.3 million African-Americans (who voted for Trump), that you’re not Black? Who in the heck does he think he is?” Scott added.

From God’s perspective, Jerusalem is not an ‘international city’ that is to be shared by the ‘three Abrahamic religions’, no, not by a long shot. The bible tells us that Jerusalem is the ‘city of the great King’, and that it is the capital city of nation of Israel, and more importantly that it is God’s city. The entire Battle of Armageddon from Ezekiel 39 is a battle over who has the right to control Jerusalem, Satan or God. Who wins in the end? God, of course, and a Thousand Year Kingdom of righteousness follows that victory.

“A simple layman armed with Scripture is to be believed above a pope or a council without it…” – Martin Luther

May 22 Streams in the Desert

He worketh.” (Psalm 37:5.)

THE translation that we find in Young of “Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass,” reads: “Roll upon Jehovah thy way; trust upon him: and he worketh.”

It calls our attention to the immediate action of God when we truly commit, or roll out of our hands into His, the burden of whatever kind it may be; a way of sorrow, of difficulty, of physical need, or of anxiety for the conversion of some dear one.

He worketh.” When? Now. We are so in danger of postponing our expectation of His acceptance of the trust, and His undertaking to accomplish what we ask Him to do, instead of saying as we commit, “He worketh.” “He worketh” even now; and praise Him that it is so.

The very expectancy enables the Holy Spirit to do the very thing we have rolled upon Him. It is out of our reach. We are not trying to do it any more. “He worketh!

Let us take the comfort out of it and not put our hands on it again. Oh, what a relief it brings! He is really working on the difficulty.

But someone may say, “I see no results.” Never mind. “He worketh,” if you have rolled it over and are looking to Jesus to do it. Faith may be tested, but “He worketh”; the Word is sure!V. H. F.

I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.” (Psalm 57:2.)

The beautiful old translation says, “He shall perform the cause which I have in hand.” Does not that make it very real to us today? Just the very thing that “I have in hand”—my own particular bit of work today, this cause that I cannot manage, this thing that I undertook in miscalculation of my own powers—this is what I may ask Him to do “for me,” and rest assured that He will perform it. “The wise and their works are in the hands of God.”—Havergal.

The Lord will go through with His covenant engagements. Whatever He takes in hand He will accomplish; hence past mercies are guarantees for the future and admirable reasons for continuing to cry unto Him.—C. H. Spurgeon.[1]
