Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (1Kings 19:11-12)

Lay Hold of Things Unseen: Grace of Faith {#Morevember}


"Almighty God, who of Thine infinite wisdom hast ordained that I should live my life within these narrow bounds of time and circumstance, let me now go forth into the world with a brave and trustful heart. It has pleased Thee to withhold from me a perfect knowledge; therefore deny me not the grace of faith by which I may lay hold of things unseen. Thou has given me little power to mould things to my own desire; therefore use Thine own omnipotence to bring about Thy desires to pass within me. Thou hast willed it that through labour and pain I should walk the upward way; be Thou then my fellow traveller as I go. 
Let me face what Thou dost send with the strength Thou dost supply: 
When Thou prosperest my undertakings, let me give heed that Thy word may prosper in my heart: 
When Thou callest me to go through the dark valley, let me not persuade myself that I know a way round..."
~John Baillie, 'A Diary of Private Prayer'
