When the believer is weakest, then is he strongest. The child that knows most its utter feebleness, entrusts itself most completely into the mother’s arms. The young eagle that knows, by many a fall, its own inability to fly yields itself to be carried on the mother’s mighty wing. When it is weak, then it is strong; and just so the believer, when he has found out, by repeated falls, his own utter feebleness, clings with simplest faith, to the arm of the Saviour – leans on his Beloved, coming up out of the wilderness, and hears with joy the word:...

“My grace is sufficient for thee; for my strength is made
perfect in weakness”. (2 Cor 12:9)
