"Let us trust Him and praise Him
in the midst of a consciousness of failure and of a remaining tendency to sin.
let us believe that our God loves to dwell in us;
and let us hope in His still more abundant grace.
...No more speak of the feebleness of your consecration.
Our mistake is, I think, that we form our own ideal
of an abiding exhibition of power and success
which is not according to the mind of God."
