God is the strength of my heart,
and my portion for ever (Psa. 73: 26).
What strength one has, if this be true! God is the strength of my heart, not merely of
my hands or my brain, but at the very seat of all, my heart, but let it be observed that the
one who makes this boast in God, also realizes his own weakness and failure. "My flesh
and my heart FAILETH BUT"--the verse before shows how the lessons of adversity and
trouble had led away from human aid; none in heaven or earth to be desired like unto
Him, and He, the portion for ever. It is easy to write; it is easy to speak beautiful words
on these things, but it requires great grace to take the position of "when I am weak, then
am I strong--most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities" (II Cor. 12: 10).
Such was the experience of Paul and of numbers of the saints of differing dispensations.
May we know this Divine strength in our weakness.
