My Dear Brother in Christ,
What! Do you fear because you have so little strength? You have forgotten
where your great strength lies. Not in yourself, but in the Lord; in the
Lord Jehovah, in whom there is everlasting strength; even in Him who, as the
Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is weary.
Jehovah-Jesus is your strength!
Can you spend those vast treasures that are in Him?
Can you draw the well of salvation dry with your thousands needs? Millions
of needy souls, with innumerable needs, have been supplied from thence, and
still the well of life is as full as ever! Christ is as full for you, my
brother, as He was for the first needy soul who ever came unto Him.
Oh, come, poor, weak thing, and lie down by faith
in the bosom of your own Lord Jesus, in the bosom of that infinite fullness,
that everlasting strength which is in Him, and take a holy ease from all
anxious thought and perplexing fear because of the little strength which is
Oh, come, cast your care upon Christ!
