After months of laboring, both in prayer as well as in the application of means (work), to break away particularly from our compromised leased home; I feel I may have applied means in excess unawares (to try and help the situation) and must need slack off. Especially when pondering that we can never avail justified liberation from the circumstance until the LORD should, through Christ, grant that it should be so – regardless of how much generous one may be in the application of means. I have for a long time now been aware of this truth but may have lost slight sight over the same as I continued under pressures.
Of cause thus submitting should never suggest the need to slack off in praying for liberation as well – never until we may, at anytime, have a sure word from the Lord that his strength is made perfect in the weakness we are petitioning him for. I therefore purpose to pray still but at the same time endeavor, through grace, to remain fully retired and prepared to suffer longer – even as long as he should please. O that he may show mercy on the whole!
