  • The Evidence of the New Birth August 15, 2018
    You must be born again. —John 3:7The answer to Nicodemus’ question, “How can a man be born when he is old?” is: Only when he is willing to die to everything in his life, including his rights, his virtues, and his religion, and becomes willing to receive into himself a new life that he has […]
  • The Discipline of the Lord August 14, 2018
    My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him. —Hebrews 12:5It is very easy to grieve the Spirit of God; we do it by despising the discipline of the Lord, or by becoming discouraged when He rebukes us. If our experience of being set apart […]
  • “Do Not Quench the Spirit” August 13, 2018
    Do not quench the Spirit. —1 Thessalonians 5:19The voice of the Spirit of God is as gentle as a summer breeze— so gentle that unless you are living in complete fellowship and oneness with God, you will never hear it. The sense of warning and restraint that the Spirit gives comes to us in the […]
  • The Theology of Resting in God August 12, 2018
    Why are you fearful, O you of little faith? —Matthew 8:26When we are afraid, the least we can do is pray to God. But our Lord has a right to expect that those who name His name have an underlying confidence in Him. God expects His children to be so confident in Him that in […]
  • This Experience Must Come August 11, 2018
    Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And Elisha…saw him no more. —2 Kings 2:11-12It is not wrong for you to depend on your “Elijah” for as long as God gives him to you. But remember that the time will come when he must leave and will no longer be your guide and your […]
  • The Holy Suffering of the Saint August 10, 2018
    Let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good… —1 Peter 4:19Choosing to suffer means that there must be something wrong with you, but choosing God’s will— even if it means you will suffer— is something very different. No normal, healthy saint ever chooses suffering; he […]
  • Prayer in the Father’s Hearing August 9, 2018
    Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, "Father, I thank You that You have heard Me." —John 11:41When the Son of God prays, He is mindful and consciously aware of only His Father. God always hears the prayers of His Son, and if the Son of God has been formed in me (see Galatians 4:19) the […]
  • Prayer in the Father’s Honor August 8, 2018
    …that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. —Luke 1:35If the Son of God has been born into my human flesh, then am I allowing His holy innocence, simplicity, and oneness with the Father the opportunity to exhibit itself in me? What was true of the Virgin Mary […]
  • Prayer in the Father’s House August 7, 2018
    …they found Him in the temple….And He said to them, "…Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?" —Luke 2:46, 49Our Lord’s childhood was not immaturity waiting to grow into manhood— His childhood is an eternal fact. Am I a holy, innocent child of God as a result of my identification […]
  • The Cross in Prayer August 6, 2018
    In that day you will ask in My name… —John 16:26We too often think of the Cross of Christ as something we have to get through, yet we get through for the purpose of getting into it. The Cross represents only one thing for us— complete, entire, absolute identification with the Lord Jesus Christ— and […]
