Just needed to go back to Amy Carmichael as we begin this year.
Ps 103.14 For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.
Job 23.10 He knows the way that I take: when he has tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
“Perhaps those words, He knows, are meant for you today because God has allowed you some special trial of faith. The love of God is very brave. He does not hold trial off lest we should be overwhelmed. He lets it come and then gloriously strengthens us to meet it. And at the end, I shall come forth as gold.” (Amy Carmichael, Whispers of His Power)
