Staying Near the Power

By Mary Wilder Tileston

      Nevertheless, I am continually with Thee: Thou hast holden me by my right hand.
         --PSALMS 73:23

      FAITH is a grasping of Almighty power;
      The hand of man laid on the arm of God;
      The grand and blessed hour
      In which the things, impossible to me,
      Become the possible, O Lord, through Thee.
         --ANNA E. HAMILTON

      NOTHING is necessary for you in maintaining a triumphant Christian life, but just to stay by the helm, and put yourself in where the power is. Come unto God, unite yourself to God, and the doing power you have is infinite!--and is none the less yours because it is His. Trim your ship steadily to the course, and God's own gales will waft it.

      Gaze intently with the eye of faith at the infinite wisdom and omnipotence of God, to whom nothing is impossible or difficult, and consider that His goodness is unbounded, and unspeakable His willingness to give, hour by hour, and moment by moment, all things needful for the spiritual life, and for complete victory over self, if we will throw ourselves with confidence into His arms.

      Whatever God tells us to do, He also helps us to do.
