my heart is fixed." By observing the words used in I Cor. 10: 13 we shall see the same
truth at work there. The A.V. speaks of a "way of escape", but this is not "enduring" to
"bearing". The word occurs in Heb. 13: 7 where it is translated "end" in the A.V. and
"issue" in the R.V.:--
"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man; but God is
faithful, Who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able: but will with the
temptation also make the end (or the issue), that ye may be able to bear it."
While therefore, in common with our fellows, we may have to say many times, "My
soul is bowed down", let us remember that our trust is in God Who "perfect", or brings to
an issue, and so be enabled also to say, "My heart is fixed".
