God is not the author of war or calamity but He uses these disasters to the only source of help. He has implanted deeply in every heart a consciousness of Himself to which we instinctively turn in moments of sorrow or danger.
The world situation demands a deeper consecration on the part of God's people. The work that must be done can never be accomplished by merely using better plans or new devices. It will not be finished by might or by power but by the Spirit of God. It will be finished by earnest prayer and deeper consecration; by men and women who know their God and who go forward by faith in Him.
