MacDonald: strength

Tuesday, July 17, 2012
    Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
    —Ephesians 6:10 (NIV)
    [God desires] not that He may say to them, “Look how mighty I am, and go down upon your knees and worship,”—for power alone was never yet worthy of prayer; but that He may say thus: “Look, my children, you will never be strong but with my strength. I have no other to give you. And that you can get only by trusting in me. I can not give it you any other way. There is no other way.”
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), Annals of a Quiet Neighbourhood, v. I [1867], London: Strahan & Co., 1873, p. 513 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, in my own strength, I fail; grant me Your strength for Your glory.
