Seek Strength from God Alone

Seek Strength from God Alone

The weak child is oftener in the lap than the strong one.
– William Gurnall

I am so weak that I can hardly write, I cannot read my Bible, I cannot even pray, I can only lie still in God’s arms like a little child, and trust.
– Hudson Taylor

Our very needs and weaknesses become blessings when faith deals with them.
– Charles Spurgeon

We are never more safe, never have more reason to expect the Lord’s help, than when we are most sensible that we can do nothing without Him.
– John Newton

The Man was wrestling with Jacob…to reduce Jacob to a sense of his nothingness, to cause him to see what a poor, helpless and worthless creature he was; it was to teach us through him the all-important lesson that in recognised weakness lies our strength.
– Arthur Pink

May my own conscious weakness wean me from all earthly props, and confidences, and refuges, to “abide under the shadow of the Almighty”.
– John MacDuff

Weakness with watchfulness will stand, when strength with too much confidence fails. Weakness, with acknowledgement of it, is the fittest seat and subject for God to perfect His strength in; for consciousness of our infirmities drives us out of ourselves to Him in whom our strength lives.
– Richard Sibbes

Of ourselves we have no strength at all; all our sufficiency is of God.
– Matthew Henry

Wait upon the Lord, beloved, and seek strength from Him alone… May God send us poverty; may God send us lack of means, and take away our power of speech if it must be, and help us only to stammer, if we may only thus get the blessing. Oh! I crave to be useful to souls, and all the rest may go where it will.
– Charles Spurgeon

I will be sharing videos from my YouTube channel to this blog in the hope that others might be blessed and God glorified. Here is a description of my channel: A large video collection of classic hymns, contemporary Praise and Worship songs, and the works (audio books, devotional readings, and sermons) of men greatly used of God, such as: Charles Spurgeon, Jonathan Edwards, A.W. Tozer, A.W. Pink, John Owen, Oswald Chambers, Andrew Murray, John MacArthur, E.M. Bounds, John Bunyan, George Whitefield, and many more, covering topics on many aspects of the Christian life. May your time spent here be blessed. "He must increase, but I must decrease." (John 3:30) https://www.youtube.com/user/stack45ny
