hudson's wisdom...

here's a few more quotes from hudson taylor's spiritual secret.
his faith is just remarkable.

'It doesn't matter, really, how great the pressure is,' he used to say; 'it only matters where the pressure lies. See that it never comes between you and the Lord-then- the greater the pressure, the more it presses you to His breast.' [pg. 153]

[pg. 163] 'But how to get faith strengthened? Not by striving after faith, but by resting on the faithful one.'

'That is rather for Him to consider than for me; for in the easiest position He must give me His grace, and in the most difficult His grace is sufficient.' {pg. 165}

{pg. 202} My need now is great and urgent, but God is greater and more near. And because He is and is what He is, all must be, all is, all will be well, Oh, my dear brother, the joy of knowing the living God, of seeing the living God, of resting on the living God in our very special and peculiar circumstances!

be blessed,
