The source of our strength

Job Scott (1751–1793) of Rhode Island travelled widely in the ministry. His Journal (see 21.51 & 22.36) is one of the treasures of the Quietist period.

Our strength or help is only in God; but then it is near us, it is in us – a force superior to all possible opposition – a force that never was, nor can be foiled. We are free to stand in this unconquerable ability, and defeat the powers of darkness; or to turn from it, and be foiled and overcome. When we stand, we know it is God alone upholds us; and when we fall, we feel that our fall or destruction is of ourselves.
