(Today's entry in In Green Pastures by J. R. Miller)
Of His Fullness
Every life will have its times of sore testing, its times of sharp trial, its experiences in which ordinary strength and preparation will not avail. It is when we have Christ behind our own little strength, when we are abiding in Christ, when our faith links us to his everlasting fulness, that we have the reserve we need for any future. True religion binds the soul to God, so that from his divine fulness supply comes for every emergency. We cannot fail if God is behind us. Our lamps can never go out if they are fed from heaven's olive trees. But if we have no such reserve, our own feeble strength will soon be exhausted, and there will be no refilling of the emptied vessel.
