Giants, God's Sustaining Hand, Fighting in Prayer

"It is when we are in the way of duty that we find giants.
It was when Israel was going forward that the giants appeared.
When they turned back into the wilderness they found none."
- Selected, Streams in the Desert, Vol. 2 -

"It is most needful for all servants of Christ to remember that whenever the Lord places a man in a position of responsibility, He will both fit him for it and maintain him in it.
It is, of course, another thing altogether if a man will rush unsent into any field of work, or any post of difficulty or danger.  In such a case we may assuredly look for a thorough breakdown, sooner or later.  But when God calls a man to a certain position, He will endow him with the needed grace to occupy it.
This holds good in every case.  We can never fail if we only cling to the living God.  We can never run dry if we are drawing from the fountain.  Our tiny springs will soon dry up; but our Lord Jesus Christ declares, 'He that believeth in me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.'"  - C.H.M.

"We plant our feet, and we fight in prayer."
- Paul Washer -
