MacDonald: strength

Thursday, June 30, 2022
    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)
    See also Eph. 6:10; Deut. 20:3-4; Isa. 40:31; Hag. 2:4; Zech. 8:13; Phil. 4:13; Col. 1:10-12; 2 Tim. 4:17; Heb. 11:1; 1 Pet. 5:10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, in my own strength, I fail; grant me Your strength for Your glory.
