Your Daily Cheer for Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

In our work for the Master, God does not want our strength, as it is often a hindrance to Him, because we are so apt to rely upon it, to the exclusion of himself. He wants our weaknesses, our infirmities, our nothingness, “That the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us.” When we are conscious of powerlessness, it will, in place of a barrier to efficient work, prove one of the strongest elements of our success, if by it we are driven to lay hold to His strength. For He hath said: “My grace is sufficient for thee ; My strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly, therefore, will I glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
Those that lean on their own strength, lean on a broken reed. In God is our only safety, our only trust. He keeps us now. He helps us now. He saves us now. In all our sorrows, toils, and tears, He stands by us and says, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Let us serve Him to-day, trust Him to-day, and rejoice in Him to-day. This service, trust. and rejoicing is out biggest promise for to-morrow. He is a present help for the present time.
-Zion’s Herald.

Remember some words that existed in 1904 don’t actually mean anything or have definition that is understood by the dictionary anymore. 😉 I’m not sure what some of the sources are, or if they still exist as the authors, but if you can figure it out more power to you. I’m just copying it.
