Daily Bread

(Gleanings from the Inner Life of Ruth Bryan)

"As your days, so shall your strength be." Deut. 33:25

I seem to see with fresh light, that it is vain to
expect to come to a certain state, when we shall
live by grace, constantly and spontaneously. The
desirable position is, to live in felt dependence
and emptiness
seeking constant renewings of
the Holy Spirit
to live by simple faith on Jesus.

Therefore, if I receive ever such large and fresh
inflowings of grace today, I must not think that
it is a stock for tomorrow; or think then to act by
this day's power, or walk by this day's light.

"Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto

thee daily." Psalm 86:3

"Give us this day our daily bread." Matthew 6:11

"Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with

benefits, even the God of our salvation." Psalm 68:19
