Days of Heaven on Earth

A woman remarked in my hearing: "I have so much work to do that I haven't time to wait on the Lord to get strength to do it." Surely that was making bricks without straw. Even if her tasks were in the name of the Lord and the church, she was under the devil's bondage.
God sends not His servants on their own charges; but God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound unto every good work (2 Corinthians 9:8).
The old Latin motto festina lente-"Make haste slowly"-has a great lesson for us. The more work we have to do, the more frequently we must drop our heads upon our desks and wait a moment for heavenly aid and love. Then we can press on with new strength. One hour baptized in the love of the Holy Spirit is worth ten battling against wind and tide without the heavenly life.
I dwell with the King for His work,
And the work, it is His and not mine;
He plans and prepares it for me
And fills me with power divine.
So, duty is changed to delight,
And prayer into praise as I sing;
I dwell with my King for His work
And work in the strength of my King.
I can do all things through Christ—Philippians 4:13
