“Blessed is the man that hears me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.” Proverbs 8:34.
The Lord’s people are seeking to heal the breach which has been made in the law of God. …
This disturbs the enemies of our faith, and every means is employed to hinder us in our work. And yet the broken-down wall is going steadily up. The world is being warned, and many are turning away from trampling under their feet the Sabbath of Jehovah. God is in this work, and man cannot stop it. Angels of God are working with the efforts of His faithful servants, and the work steadily advances. We shall meet with opposition of every description, as did the builders of the walls of Jerusalem; but if we watch and pray and work, as they did, God will fight our battles for us and give us precious victories. –Testimony Treasures, vol. 1, p. 432.
What can I say to my brethren in the name of the Lord? What proportion of our efforts has been made in accordance with the light the Lord has been pleased to give? We cannot depend upon form or external machinery. What we need is the quickening influence of the Holy Spirit of God. “Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, said the Lord of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6). Pray without ceasing, and watch by working in accordance with your prayers. As you pray, believe, trust in God. It is the time of the latter rain, when the Lord will give largely of His Spirit. Be fervent in prayer, and watch in the Spirit. – Ye Shall Receive Power, p. 304.
Question to think about:
Why a man cannot stop the restoration of God’s law?
Why do we rely on precious victories?
Whose influence do we need especially?
