Full of power by the Spirit of the Lord

Truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord.—Micah 3:8.

You, who are kept by the power of God through, faith unto salvation.—1 Peter 1:4, 5.

 

Thou must not look so much at the evil that is nigh, but rather at that which stands ready to pity and help,—and which hath pitied and helped thy distressed soul, and will pity and help it again. Why is there a mercy seat, but for the sinner to look towards in time of need? Be patient till the Lord’s tender mercy and love visit thee again; and then, look up to Him against this and such like snares, which would come between thee and the appearance of the Lord’s love; that thou mayest feel more of His abidings with thee, and of the sweet effects thereof, For, these things are not to destroy thee, but to teach thee wisdom; which the Lord is able, through many exercises and sore trials, to bestow upon thee; that thy heart may be rid of all that burdeneth, and filled with all it rightly desires after, in the proper season and goodness of the Lord; to whose wise ordering and tender mercy I commit thee.

Isaac Penington.
