Principles and Practices - June 7

Who Can Help

Great is often the misery of the human heart, great and overwhelming, the distress of a soul which lies fettered in the bands of this earthly life! Who shall count these sufferings, or measure the fear and anxiety which seize upon the heart when darkness as of night descends upon the spirit? And when we see how the enemy and his host surround us on all sides in this valley of tears, do we not feel forced to cry aloud with the Apostle: "Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?" (Rom. vii, 24.)
