|When my heart is overwhelmed lead me to the Rock that is higher than I| (Ps. lxi.2).
The end of self is the beginning of God. |When the tale of bricks is doubled then comes Moses.| That is the old Hebrew way of putting it. |Man's extremity is God's opportunity.| That is the proverbial expression of it. |When my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the rock that is higher than I.| That is David's way of expressing it. |We have no might against this company, neither know we what to do.| No might, no light -- |but our eyes are upon Thee,| that was Jehoshaphat's experience of it. |Mine eyes fail with looking upward. I am oppressed, Lord, undertake for me.|
|When I had great trouble I always went to God and was wondrously carried through; but in my little trials I used to try to manage them myself, and often most signally failed.| So Miss Havergal has expressed the experience of many a Christian. God wants us |at our wit's end,| and then He will show His wisdom, love and power. How often we ask God to help, and then begin to count up the human probabilities! God's very blessings become a hindrance to us if we look from Him to them.
