Our Great Need

I want to share an excerpt with you from an article written by Smith Wigglesworth entitled, "Our Great Need." Thought this was a pretty profound word for us as followers of Christ in this day and age!

"I have a Jesus like that...who can speak the word and the thing is done; I have a Jesus indwelling me and vitalizing me with a faith that believes it is true; I have a Jesus within me who has never let me get faint-hearted or weary. Let us press on in faith along the line of God's will, and the outpouring which we have longed to see will come. Cheer up, hold on, never let go the vision; be sure it is for you just as much as for anybody else, and God will surely make it come to pass.

Never look down, because then you will only see the ground and miss the vision. All blessings come from above; therefore keep your eye on Jesus. Never weary. If you do not fall out by the way, He will be with you to strengthen you in the way. Hallelujah!"
