[June 1]
Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee. Psalm 55:22
ANY saint of God may have tears in the trying experiences of the journey in the narrow way, but none is excusable for murmuring. Rather, each should say with the Master, "The cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?" To those who approach the springs of bitterness with the proper faith in God as did Moses, the Lord makes known precious promises, which "steal the bitter from life's woes." As the Israelites were led from the bitter waters to Elim and its rest and shade, so God's spiritual Israel are not tempted and tried above what they are able to bear. Z'13-217 R5278:6(Hymn 112)
