Marshall: depending on God

Saturday, September 21, 2019
    Feast of Matthew, Apostle & Evangelist
    [Jesus:] I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
    —John 15:5 (NIV)
    If your every human plan and calculation has miscarried, if, one by one, human props have been knocked out, and doors have shut in your face, take heart. God is trying to get a message through to you, and the message is: “Stop depending on inadequate human resources. Let me handle the matter.”
    ... Catherine Marshall (1914-1983), Apostolic Ministry: Sermons and Addresses, John Scott Lidgett, London: Charles H. Kelly, 1909, p. 26 (see the book)
    See also John 15:5; 2 Cor. 12:9-10; 2 Tim. 1:12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I depend solely on You.
