“Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed.” Revelation 5:5
“The Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8
“Sin shall not have dominion over you.” Romans 6:14
Many complain that, though they will not turn back — yet they have no power to advance further. If this be your case, my reader, remember that the enemy of souls will discourage you. But go on praying and venture evermore upon the Lord. Consider how He awakened you at first, how often He has since heard your prayers and assisted you in many hard struggles. Surely He will help you now also. If that will not do, begin, as it were, afresh; acknowledge yourself guilty in every respect; and as the chief of sinners, plead for mercy and be instant in humble supplications — looking at the same time upon God as a reconciled Father through Christ, who is willing to pardon you and bless you, in spite of all your misery; then you will soon make a better progress. To despair of our own strength is good — but we must never despair of the power of Christ, who is risen from the dead and will enable you to overcome with Him at last. He will certainly help you in the due and best season. He has said, “As your day, so shall your strength be,” and He will make good His word. The creature’s day can never be a match for the Creator’s strength.
