Believing on Christ
“It is God that worketh in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure.”
So I have found by soul experience, that when the LORD has gone before me, I could follow; and when He has held me up, I could stand; when He has given me faith, I could believe; when He bears witness with my spirit that I am His, I can say, “Abba, Father;” when His presence causeth mine enemies to flee, I can shout victory; yea, I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me; but without Him, I am at a point, and neither men nor devils can overthrow me in it, I can do nothing.
It matters not what liberty, joys, peace or confidence I have enjoyed, if God leaves me to the devil and myself, I find I am nothing but earthly, sensual and devilish.
I am a living witness that in my flesh there dwelleth no good thing, and I am confident of it that everyone that is taught of God is a living witness of its truth.
