Our Sufficiency is of God

Brothers and sisters...please, if you have even a spare moment, pray for me. I am in the final press to finish the book. Because of the increase of size and other changes the book has grown from six chapters to nine. I have until May 21 to finish. Between now and then I'll be getting marked up chapters from my editors to revise. Some of these revisions will be quite involved. My editors are great and blowing up chapters and then guiding me in piecing them back together in a better form. But all this takes smoothing and often new introductions and transitions.

Today in my quiet time I meditated on my need for faith...Hebrews 11:6 and a chapter in Charles Bridges book "The Christian Ministry." Here's a quote that is very encouraging.

“The main difficulty, therefore, is not in our work, but in ourselves; in the conflict with our own unbelief, in the form either of indolence or of self-dependence. When faith is really brought into action, the extent and aggravation of the difficulty (even were it increased an hundred-fold) is a matter of little comparative moment. Difficulties heaped upon difficulties can never rise to the level of the promise of God. To meet the trembling apprehensions—“Who is sufficient for these things?” the answer is ready—“Our sufficiency is of God.” —Charles Bridges, The Christian Ministry Page 175

Amen! I am not sufficient to do finish in the short time that is left. But God is my sufficiency. Thank you for your prayers.
