"He brought me forth also into a large place;
He delivered me, because he delighted in me." Psalm 18:19
And what is this "large place"? What can it be but God Himself, that infinite Being in whom all other beings and all other streams of life terminate? God is a large place indeed. And it was through humiliation, through abasement, through nothingness that David was brought into it. MADAME GUYON
"I have you eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself." Exodus 19:4
Fearing to launch on "full surrender's" tide,
I asked the Lord where would its waters glide
My little bark, "To troubles seas I dread?"
"Unto myself", He said.
Striving for souls, I loved the work too well;
Then dissapointments came; I could not tell
The reason, till He said, "I am thine all;
Unto Myself I call."
Watching my heroes- those I love the best-
I saw them fail; they could not stand the test,
Even by this the Lord, through tears not few,
Unto Himself me drew.
Unto Himself! Nor earthly tongue can tell
To bliss I find, since in His heart I dwell;
The things that charmed me once seem all as naught;
Unto Himself I'm brought.
