Kept By the Power of God

By Mary Wilder Tileston

      Truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord.
      MICAH 3:8

      You, who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.
      1 PETER 1:4,5

      THOU must not look so much at the evil that is nigh, but rather at that which stands ready to pity and help,--and which hath pitied and helped thy distressed soul, and will pity and help it again. Why is there a mercy-seat, but for the sinner to look towards in time of need? Be patient till the Lord's tender mercy and love visit thee again; and then, look up to Him against this and such like snares, which would come between thee and the appearance of the Lord's love; that thou mayest feel more of His abidings with thee, and of the sweet effects thereof. For, these things are not to destroy thee, but to teach thee wisdom; which the Lord is able, through many exercises and sore trials, to bestow upon thee; that thy heart may be rid of all that burdeneth, and filled with all it rightly desires after, in the proper season and goodness of the Lord; to whose wise ordering and tender mercy I commit thee.
