Quiet Time

So Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. Just as the Father has sent me, I also send you.”

[John 20:21 NET]

We should never leave our room until we have seen the face of our dear Master, Christ, and have realized that we are being sent forth by Him to do His will, and to finish the work which He has given us to do. He who said to His immediate followers, “As my Father hath sent me, even so send I you,” says as much to each one of us, as the dawn summons us to live another day. We should realize that we are as much sent forth by Him as the angels who “do His commandments, hearkening unto the voice of His word.” There is some plan for each day’s work, which He will unfold to us, if only we will look up to Him to do so; some mission to fulfil; some ministry to perform; some lesson patiently to learn, that we may be able to “reach others also.” As to our plans we need not be anxious; because He who sends us forth is responsible to make the plan, according to His infinite wisdom; and to reveal it to us, however dull and stupid our faculties may be. And as to our sufficiency, we are secure of having all needful grace; because He never sends us forth, except He first breathes on us and says, “Receive ye the Holy Ghost.” There is always a special endowment for special power.

[F. B. Meyer]
