The Eagle Life and Other Studies in the Old Testament by J H Jowett by Classics.
“If life were just a sunny picnic that was never broken up by fierce tempest, by thunder and lightning and pelting rain, the greater part of our human resources would remain unused and concealed. It is in the mighty days that we discover ourselves. Latent gifts troop out of their graves. Buried seeds spring into vigorous life. We never thought we had it in us? The big struggle becomes not only our revealer, but also our unearther, and we put on strength and majesty like a robe. We are living through mighty days, and by God's good grace we can be equal to the days.
These are days of great unlockings, and we are having surprises on every side! Young fellows who were regarded as milksops are revealing themselves as iron pillars. Once selfish men are unveiling their spiritual wealth in glorious sacrifice. Women who appeared to be living for nothing are giving their life like wine! The “mighty days” are upon us, and God is making us equal to the days.”
