'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
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.
