Others May, You Cannot!
óG.D. Watson (1845-1924)
I came across this track in the
late 60's or early 70's and I knew it was a message for me. I still have it,I have read it many times through the years and it always brings tears to my eyes.
It's wonderful to know that no matter what we do or don't do our Father in Heaven knows and sees and that is all that counts. He sees our feelings and thoughts and hears every word,and loves it when we come before Him with thanksgiving and praise.
This track has touch my heart so many times and has given me peace and assurance.
Thank you for making it available. Jeanet Sivas
One night, years ago, I was sitting at my desk on the computer and I remember my mind in turmoil, confusion. I was wondering why I seemed to torture myself over the smallest of things and I have this "thing" inside that won't rest if I witness a wrong and don't speak on it. I only ask God to help me to express myself truely humbly to others. I remember asking God, and immediately this writing came up on my screen. God is so good!! But I can't explain this to others either, because they seem to look at me as though I feel I am better than them, which is absolutely not true. I feel inadequate and like there is no way I can please my God. Why would I have the right to address others wrongs when I am no where near perfect? Another time of unrest, one night I could not sleep because I and my family were going through some very hard times. I was crying and praying and asking God to just help me sleep, because my mind was racing from one thought to another. Before I knew it, I was asleep and all I saw was complete black with white letters flashing by repeatedly: Isaiah 62!! God is so good!! At the time, I had never before read this chapter nor did I know what it was about; so I KNOW God gave it to me. I woke and read it, immediate peace, calm and reassurance came upon me. Please keep me in your prayers that I may be an empty vessel, submitting to Gods will always.
I needed to hear that!
I know what you feel.
I also needed to read Isaiah 62.
God bless you.
Greetings in Christ Jesus. Cliff Smith here, doing what I often do...checking out your website for topics of importance for those I encounter in my field of service and testimony. I was quite surprised (..although I should't have been) when I found a tract that God used in my early years as His child to stabilize my heart and mind, while placing me on the peculiar road to which He was going to assign me: DEFENSE OF HIS TRUTH (the Word of God.)
The tract I refer to, ...and have referred to time and time again in my field of service is "Others May, You Cannot" I first came across that tract in 1966 while I was living/working in Florida. It has been one from which I draw strength, even until this day.
Thank you for making it available to brethren (and sisters) everywhere. It is an amazingly powerful message to store in the heart if you're going into any kind of service in the Lord. Keep up God's work, brother Noel; your home-going is imminent. Christ's appearing is nigh. May God richly bless all that you do.
In Christ, unto His praise, honor and glory, ...now and forever,
Its called dying to self and living to Christ. And like Jesus we re definately interested in God receiving the praise and glory.
A message much needed to be heeded in this day of the self willed christian. Thank you
August 21 1979 I came to confess with my mouth and believe in my heart as the scriptures says. The years have been very difficult since that time on my knees I cried out to the living God, Save Me a sinner, I surrender ALL! While many times I seem to have grown cold and the rod of His discipline came ever so surley, He has brought me, let me hear His voice and not harden my heart but grant Grace for repentance, I come just as I am with out one plea but that thy blood oh Lamb of God was shed for me. Today I come again and fixing my hope on nothing but the Lamb of God slain before the foundation of the world. Thank You Father "others may , but I cannot"...
