Yes, Christian, although in your daily course
you seem to struggle in your duty,
and though nothing seems to go on satisfactorily,
be assured of this,
so long as you are really looking to Christ
and relying upon Him—
so long is He working in you by His Spirit—
however difficult may be your tasks,
you will make progress.
You perhaps may never perceive it—
you may not appear to make a step in advance—
but, be not discouraged.
‘All the promises of God in Christ are yes,
and in him Amen, unto the glory of God;’
and these promises are yours.
-John MacDuff, The Throne of Grace
