STREAMS IN THE DESERT by L.B. COWMAN

Though You have made me see troubles, many and bitter, You will restore my life again. (Psalm 71:20)

God makes you "see troubles". Sometimes as part of your education being carried out, you must "go down to the depths of the earth" (Psalm 63:9), travel subterranean passages, and lie buried among the dead. But not for even one moment is the bond of fellowship and oneness between God and you strained to the point of breaking. And ultimately, from the depths, He "will restore [your] life again."

Never doubt God! Never say that He has forsaken or forgotten you or think that He is unsympathetic. He "will restore [your] life again." No matter how many twists and turns the road may have, there is always one smooth, straight portion. Even the longest day has a sunset, and the winter snow may stay quite some time, but it will finally melt.

Be steadfast, "because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain" (1Cor. 15:58). He will turn to you again and comfort you. And when He does, your heart that has forgotten how to sing will break forth in thankful and jubilant song, just like the psalmist who sang, "My tongue will sing of Your righteousness" (Psalm 51:4).

Though the rain may fall and the wind be blowing,
And chilled and cold is the wintry blast;
Though the cloudy sky is still cloudier growing,
And the dead leaves tell that the summer has passed;
My face is fixed on the stormy heaven,
My heart is as calm as the summer sea,
Glad to receive what my God has given,
Whate'er it be.
When I feel the cold, I can say, "He sends it,"
And His winds blow blessings, I surely know;
For I've never a need but that He will meet it;
And my heart beats warm, though the winds may blow.

MAGNIFICENT PRAYER by NICK HARRISON

Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6:34

Let us move on and step out boldly, even if the darkness of night means that we can scarcely see our way.
The path ahead of us will open as we press on, like the trail through the forest, or the Alpine pass that discloses but a few rods of its length.
Often, God gives work for us to do without any light or illumination at all except His own command, but those who know the way to God can find it in the dark - - - one step at a time. Alexander MacLaren

PRAY ABOUT IT: When we move ahead with God, very often only the next step ahead of us is visible. Our nature is to want the entire pathway lit. But if it were so lit, how could we walk by faith? It's only as we trust God for the next step that we exercise faith.
As you pray, trust Him for today's dark step. Don't consider tomorrow. The light for tomorrow's step will only shine tomorrow.

As every day demands its bread, so every day demands its prayer. No amount of praying today will suffice for tomorrow's praying. No amount of praying for tomorrow is of any great value to us today. So, leave tomorrow with its cares, its needs, its troubles in God's hands. There is no storing tomorrow's grace, neither is there any laying up of today's grace to meet tomorrow's necessities. E.M.
