Yesterday morning, in my ‘quiet time’, I read the following:
“In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.” Rom. 8:37.
‘The Gospel is so arranged and the gift of God so great that you may take the very enemies that fight you and the forces that are arrayed against you and make them steps up to the very gates of heaven and the presence of God.
Like the eagle, who sits on a crag and watches the sky as it is filling with blackness, and the forked lightning are playing up and down, and he is sitting perfectly still, turning the one eye and then the other toward the storm. But he never moves until he begins to feel the burst of the breeze and he knows that the hurricane has struck him. Then, with a scream, he swings his breast to the storm, and uses the storm to go up to the sky; away he goes, borne upward upon it.
That is what God wants for every one of His children, to be more than conquerors turning the storm-cloud into a chariot.’
