Andrew Murray wrote a book titled Abiding in Christ, originally published in 1895 but still relevant today. The posts in this series are a combination of his thoughts and mine.
“Sometimes there are hours and days of great continuity and even a profound experience of the peace of God. But how little is needed to mar (our) peace. To bring a cloud over the soul! And then, how the faith is shaken!”
Oh how I know this is true. I let too many things of this world mar the peace I have in Christ.
“…faith is putting ourselves quietly into God’s hands for Him to do the work.”
How much easier it is to rest than to fret. So why do I spend so much time fretting? I don’t particularly like the expression ‘let go and let God’, but I do think I need to let go and rest in His arms.
But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. – I Peter 5:10
