Day 8 (posted a half hour early)

"He wants us to manifest the sweet grace of continuance amid all the sudden and saddening upheavals of our intensely varied life. This was the prophet’s triumph. He made his calamity a witness to the eternal. He made his very loneliness minister to his God."   
--J.H. Jowett, quoted by Mrs. Cowman in her Devotions for Morning and Evening
This quote refers to Ezekiel 24:18: "So I spoke to the people in the morning, and at evening my wife died; and the next morning I did as I was commanded."
The dedication of Ezekiel! To be willing for the Lord to do all these things to him! This is the supremacy of the knowledge of the LORD. To sacrifice any and all "that they may know that He is the LORD."

A great reminder that our faith and obedience should never be based on our circumstances!
