The Lord himself invites you to a conference concerning your immediate and endless happiness, and He would not have done this if He did not mean well toward you. Do not refuse the Lord Jesus who knocks at your door; for He knocks with a hand which was nailed to the tree for such as you are. Since His only and sole object is your good, incline your ear and come to Him. Hearken diligently, and let the good word sink into your soul. (C.H. Spurgeon, All of Grace)

Vision Delayed

Vision delayed? Things not going as well as you'd expected?

In Amazing Grace in the Life of William Wilberforce, John Piper writes of the perseverance of William Wilberforce:

His adversaries complained that Wilberforce "jumped up whenever they knocked him down." One of them in particular put it like this: "It is necessary to watch him as he is blessed with … that Enthusiastic spirit, which is so far from yielding that it grows more vigorous from blows."

What was the secret to his perseverance? Piper writes, "There is a deeper root of Wilberforce’s endurance than camaraderie. It is the root of childlike, child-loving, self-forgetting joy in Christ."

Whatever you're facing today, take heart. Wilberforce persevered for 46 years. Hang in there.
