Singh: laying hold of God

Sunday, June 19, 2022
    Commemoration of Sundar Singh of India, Sadhu, Evangelist, Teacher, 1929
    In bringing many sons to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the author of their salvation perfect through suffering.
    —Hebrews 2:10 (NIV)
    Prayer does not consist in an effort to obtain from God the things which are necessary for this life. Prayer is an effort to lay hold of God Himself, the Author of life, and when we have found Him who is the source of life and have entered into communion with Him, then the whole of life is ours and with Him all that will make life perfect.
    ... Sadhu Sundar Singh (1889-1929), At the Master’s Feet, Fleming H. Revell, 1922, p. 41 (see the book)
    See also Heb. 2:10; Gen. 2:7; John 14:23; Acts 3:15; Gal. 4:6; Phil. 2:1-2; Heb. 5:8-10; 12:2; 1 John 1:3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may I ever cling to You.
