If our ministry is to have power, and our gospel testimony efficacy, it will only be as our souls rise above their failings, and the failure of all around, and as with the hand of faith we grasp the hand of the unfailing God, and lay hold of the promises of His Word. It was thus Abraham triumphed over the sorrow of laying his Isaac on the altar; and it is thus we triumph over all sorrow from within or from without over all difficulty that meets us in the path of obedience, and overall weakness that results from our own failures and shortcomings. It is the consideration of the faithfulness of God; that will raise us up out of our feebleness or our unbelief.
I will not work my soul to save,
For that the Lord has done;
But I will work like any slave
From 'love to God's dear Son.
