Daily Strength

The Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on.

– Exod 14:15 NET

Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”

– Luke 9:62 NET

Be trustful, be steadfast, whatever betide thee,

Only one thing do thou ask of the Lord,—

Grace to go forward wherever He guide thee,

Simply believing the truth of His word.

—ANON.

The soul ceases to weary itself with planning and foreseeing, giving itself up to God’s Holy Spirit within, and to the teachings of His providence without. He is not forever fretting as to his progress, or looking back to see how far he is getting on; rather he goes steadily and quietly on, and makes all the more progress because it is unconscious. So he never gets troubled and discouraged; if he falls he humbles himself, but gets up at once, and goes on with renewed earnestness.

—JEAN NICOLAS GROU.
