My bed beckons but one last post before I sink my face into my pillows. Love the phrasal verb “bear up.”

“My grace is sufficient for thee.”
–2 Corinthians 12:9

If none of God’s saints were poor and tried, we should not know half so well the consolations of divine grace. Saints bear up under every discouragement, believing that all things work together for their good, and that out of apparent evils a real blessing shall ultimately spring–that their God will either work a deliverance for them speedily, or most assuredly support them in the trouble, as long as He is pleased to keep them in it. This patience of the saints proves the power of divine grace.

He who would glorify his God must set his account upon meeting with many trials. No man can be illustrious before the Lord unless his conflicts be many. If then, yours be a much-tried path, rejoice in it, because you will the better show forth the all-sufficient grace of God. As for His failing you, never dream of it–hate the thought. The God who has been sufficient until now, should be trusted to the end. –C. H. Spurgeon
