The life of faith

(Octavius Winslow, “Go to Jesus”)

Then Jesus said, “Come to Me, all of you
who are weary and carry heavy burdens,
and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

The life of faith is a constant coming to
for daily, hourly, and fresh supplies.

Let every circumstance and event, every
trial, sorrow, and need, be an echo of the
gracious life inspiring words: “Go to Jesus!” The life of faith

Go to Jesus, confessing sin.
unveiling grief.
and telling Him your need.
Go to Jesus, breathing love, desire, and hope.

You are still in the land of famine and of need.
But your heavenly Father would remind you
that He has anticipated and provided . . .
for all your requirements,
your history,
and your daily demands,
in Him whom whose fullness fills all in all.

Take the broken heart;
cold heart, or the glowing heart;
take your barrenness, or your fruitfulness;
the sunbeam of prosperity, or the cloud of adversity;
joy, or the sorrow;
take all to Jesus!

Let Him participate in all, keep you, sympathize
with all; for Jesus is your Brother, raised up to
befriend, relieve, and preserve you in your time
of need.
