Cassels: the storehouse of grace

Monday, November 24, 2014
The LORD is my strength and my shield;
    my heart trusts in him, and I am helped.
My heart leaps for joy,
    and I will give thanks to him in song.
    —Psalm 28:7 (NIV)
    If [God] wants you to do something, he’ll make it possible for you to do it, but the grace he provides comes only with the task and cannot be stockpiled beforehand. We are dependent on him from hour to hour, and the greater our awareness of this fact, the less likely we are to faint or fail in a crisis.
    ... Louis Cassels (1922-1974), Christian Primer, Garden City, N.Y.: Doubleday, 1964, p. 102 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 28:7; 112:9; 118:14; Jonah 2:2,8-9; 1 Cor. 10:13; 15:10; 2 Cor. 9:8-10; Eph. 1:11-12; 3:16; 4:7; 1 Pet. 2:1-3; 4:10; 5:10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your strength overcomes all difficulties.
