February 23: My flesh and my heart faileth; but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever. Psa. 73:26

In seasons of heavy trial the darkness may indeed so deepen upon the soul, as in our dear Lord's case, as almost to shut out the stars of hope; yet if, like the Lord, we hold on to the omnipotent arm of Jehovah and meekly say, "Nevertheless, not my will, but Thine be done," His grace will always be sufficient; and with the Psalmist we can say, "Though my flesh and my heart fail, yet God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever"; and, with the Lord, our hearts will respond--"The cup which My Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?"
