  • The Inspiration of Spiritual Initiative February 16, 2020
    Arise from the dead… —Ephesians 5:14Not all initiative, the willingness to take the first step, is inspired by God. Someone may say to you, “Get up and get going! Take your reluctance by the throat and throw it overboard— just do what needs to be done!” That is what we mean by ordinary human initiative.…
  • “Am I My Brother’s Keeper?” February 15, 2020
    None of us lives to himself… —Romans 14:7Has it ever dawned on you that you are responsible spiritually to God for other people? For instance, if I allow any turning away from God in my private life, everyone around me suffers. We “sit together in the heavenly places…” (Ephesians 2:6). “If one member suffers, all […]
  • The Discipline of Hearing February 14, 2020
    Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops. —Matthew 10:27Sometimes God puts us through the experience and discipline of darkness to teach us to hear and obey Him. Song birds are taught to sing in the dark, and God puts us […]
  • The Devotion of Hearing February 13, 2020
    Samuel answered, "Speak, for Your servant hears." —1 Samuel 3:10Just because I have listened carefully and intently to one thing from God does not mean that I will listen to everything He says. I show God my lack of love and respect for Him by the insensitivity of my heart and mind toward what He […]
  • Are You Listening to God? February 12, 2020
    They said to Moses, "You speak with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die." —Exodus 20:19We don’t consciously and deliberately disobey God— we simply don’t listen to Him. God has given His commands to us, but we pay no attention to them— not because of willful disobedience, […]
  • Is Your Mind Stayed on God? February 11, 2020
    You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. —Isaiah 26:3Is your mind stayed on God or is it starved? Starvation of the mind, caused by neglect, is one of the chief sources of exhaustion and weakness in a servant’s life. If you have never used […]
  • Is Your Ability to See God Blinded? February 10, 2020
    Lift up your eyes on high, and see who has created these things… —Isaiah 40:26The people of God in Isaiah’s time had blinded their minds’ ability to see God by looking on the face of idols. But Isaiah made them look up at the heavens; that is, he made them begin to use their power […]
  • Are You Exhausted Spiritually? February 9, 2020
    The everlasting God…neither faints nor is weary. —Isaiah 40:28Exhaustion means that our vital energies are completely worn out and spent. Spiritual exhaustion is never the result of sin, but of service. Whether or not you experience exhaustion will depend on where you get your supplies. Jesus said to Peter, “Feed My sheep,” but He gave […]
  • The Cost of Sanctification February 8, 2020
    May the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely… —1 Thessalonians 5:23When we pray, asking God to sanctify us, are we prepared to measure up to what that really means? We take the word sanctification much too lightly. Are we prepared to pay the cost of sanctification? The cost will be a deep restriction of […]
  • Spiritual Dejection February 7, 2020
    We were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, today is the third day since these things happened. —Luke 24:21Every fact that the disciples stated was right, but the conclusions they drew from those facts were wrong. Anything that has even a hint of dejection spiritually is […]
