He Lowers To Raise

     December 10, 2015


'The Love Hasn't Died!"

    The Lord makes poor and makes rich;

He brings low and lifts up.

-------1 Samuel 2:7

         All my changes come from Him who never changes.

If I had grown rich, I should have seen His hand in it, and

I should have praised Him; let me equally see His hand if

I am made poor, and let me as heartily praise Him.  In any

case, the Lord has done it, and it is well.

         It seems that Jehovah's way is to lower those whom

He means to raise, and to strip those whom He intends to

clothe.  If I am now enduring the bringing low, I may well

rejoice because I see in it the preface to the lifting up.  The

more we are humbled by grace, the more we shall be exalted

in glory.

         Lord, You have taken me down of late and made me feel

my insignificance and sin.  It is not a pleasant experience, but

I pray You make it a profitable one to me.  Amen.
