JULY 6

 

 What man is he that feareth the LORD? Him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose—Psa. 25:12.

 

 It is not for us to supervise the trials and difficulties which may beset us. It is for us to make an unreserved consecration of ourselves to the Lord and then leave to Him the decision of how great shall be our trials and besetments, how great our sacrifices in following His leadings. The Lord may see that some need special trials more than others, and those things which to some would be great trials and imply great sacrifices, to others, because of greater love to the Lord and His cause, and greater zeal for service, the sacrifice might be, as the Apostle expresses it of his own, “light afflictions, which are but for a moment, and which are working out a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory”.
