“I will heal your backslidings.” Jeremiah 3:22
“It is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13
Blessed Lord and Savior, I would gladly believe in You, be faithful and obedient to you, and desire that I always work that which is good. And since this also is Your will, I trust it shall be done. For since it is You will, who can hinder it? True it is that sin, flesh, the world, and devils are against it, but shall these enemies be stronger than You, the mighty God? Shall their opposition be able to quell Your work in me, if I do not consent to it? That can never be.
- The more violence they use upon me, the more earnest may I be with You in prayer. And the more I pray, the more glorious will Your assistance be.
- The more they hinder, the more You will further; so that all their hindrances shall be swallowed up by Your furtherances, as the serpents of the sorcerers in Egypt were swallowed up by the serpent of Moses.
The enemy will fall by his own sword, and the greatest opposition will turn to my good, and to the promoting of Your work. Everything indeed can overcome me, if I do not abide in You by continual faith and prayer. But by thus abiding in You, all opposition proves not only weak in itself — but profitable to my soul. O Jesus, let Your strength be made perfect in my weakness, and may I ever find Your grace sufficient for me!
