Meditation Monday

Those who wait on the Lord . . . shall mount up with wings like eagles. (Isaiah 40:31)

In the nurture of the soul, the Potter's fingers represent the touch of the Spirit of God working in us to will and to do of His good pleasure. He is in us all, His one purpose being to infill us with Himself, and to fulfill through us "all the good pleasure of His goodness, and every work of faith with power; that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in us and we in Him."

God's touch and voice give the meaning of His providences; and His providences enforce the lesson that his tender monitions might not be strong enough to teach. Whenever, therefore, you are in doubt as to the meaning of certain circumstances through which you are called to pass, and which are strange and inexplicable, be still; refrain from murmuring or repining; hush the many voices that would speak within; listen until there is borne in on your soul a persuasion of God's purpose; and let His Spirit within cooperate with the circumstance without.

It is in the equal working of these two—the circumstance supplying the occasion for manifesting a certain grace, and the Holy Ghost supplying the grace to be manifested—that the spirit soars, as the bird by the even motion of its two wings.

—F. B. Meyer, Jeremiah
