Moody: daily grace

Wednesday, July 12, 2023
    [The LORD] humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.
    —Deuteronomy 8:3 (NIV)
    If we would be strong and vigorous, we must go to God daily and get grace. A man can no more take in a supply of grace for the future than he can eat enough today to last him for the next six months; or take sufficient air into his lungs at once to sustain life for a week to come. We are permitted to draw upon God’s store of grace from day to day, as we need it.
    ... Dwight Lyman Moody (1837-1899), Sovereign Grace, Chicago, Ill.: Bible Institute Colportage Association, 1891, reprint, Echo Library, 2010, p. 33 (see the book)
    See also Deut. 8:3; Ex. 16:21-23; Job 23:12; Pr. 30:8; Matt. 6:11; Luke 11:3; John 6:35
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I must seek You daily.
