[May 5]
Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits. Psalm 68:19
HOW loving and tender is our God, and how wise and strong! His promises have never failed those who have put their trust in him. We may feel that our efforts to be good and do good are very unproductive, that the opposition from without and within is very strong. But it is when we are weak, when we realize our own helplessness and incompetency, that we may be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might. It is then that we may realize that his strength is made perfect in our weakness. The fact that we are weak and lame does not separate us from the love and power of our God, while we are striving to do his will; for "he knoweth our frame, he remembereth that we are dust." Z'15-345 R5803:2(Hymn 185)
