Lawrence: drawing us to Himself

Tuesday, April 8, 2014
    Commemoration of William Augustus Muhlenberg of New York, Priest, 1877
In him our hearts rejoice,
    for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD,
    even as we put our hope in you.
    —Psalm 33:21-22 (NIV)
    God has many ways of drawing us to Himself. He sometimes hides Himself from us; but faith alone, which will not fail us in time of need, ought to be our support and the foundation of our confidence, which must be all in God.
    ... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691), The Practice of the Presence of God, New York, Revell, 1895, p. 40-41 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 33:21-22; 10:1; 13; 22:1-2; 89:46; 147:11; Pr. 3:25-26; John 20:29; Rom. 1:17; Heb. 4:16; 1 John 5:14
Quiet time reflection:
    Am I trusting in God alone?
