God Gives Power to Those Who Are Awake and Remain with Him ㅡ
“And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
(Matthew 26:40, 41)
Brethren, if you connect your souls with God by living faith, He will make you men of power. If you trust to your own strength and wisdom, you will surely fail.
You should ever seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. You should be active, interested workers in the church, cultivating your religious faculties, and keeping your own souls in the love of God.
Christ is ever sending messages to those who listen for His voice.
On the night of our Saviour’s agony in the Garden of Gethsemane the sleeping disciples heard not the voice of Jesus; they had a dim sense of the angel’s presence, but lost the power and glory of the scene by drowsiness and stupor, and thus failed to receive the evidence which would have strengthened their souls for the terrible scenes before them.
Thus the very men who most need divine instruction often fail to receive it because they do not place themselves in communication with heaven.
Satan is ever seeking to impress and control the mind, and none of us are safe except as we have a constant connection with God.
We must momentarily receive supplies from heaven, and if we would be kept by the power of God we must be obedient to all His requirements.
(Testimonies for the Church Volume 4 541, 542)
