  • Drawing on the Grace of God— Now June 26, 2017
    We…plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain. —2 Corinthians 6:1The grace you had yesterday will not be sufficient for today. Grace is the overflowing favor of God, and you can always count on it being available to draw upon as needed. “…in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses”— […]
  • Receiving Yourself in the Fires of Sorrow June 25, 2017
    …what shall I say? "Father, save Me from this hour"? But for this purpose I came to this hour. "Father, glorify Your name." —John 12:27-28As a saint of God, my attitude toward sorrow and difficulty should not be to ask that they be prevented, but to ask that God protect me so that I may […]
  • Reconciling Yourself to the Fact of Sin June 24, 2017
    This is your hour, and the power of darkness. —Luke 22:53Not being reconciled to the fact of sin— not recognizing it and refusing to deal with it— produces all the disasters in life. You may talk about the lofty virtues of human nature, but there is something in human nature that will mockingly laugh in […]
  • “Acquainted With Grief” June 23, 2017
    He is…a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. —Isaiah 53:3We are not “acquainted with grief” in the same way our Lord was acquainted with it. We endure it and live through it, but we do not become intimate with it. At the beginning of our lives we do not bring ourselves to the point […]
  • The Unchanging Law of Judgment June 22, 2017
    With what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. —Matthew 7:2This statement is not some haphazard theory, but it is an eternal law of God. Whatever judgment you give will be the very way you are judged. There is a difference between […]
  • The Ministry of the Inner Life June 21, 2017
    You are…a royal priesthood… —1 Peter 2:9By what right have we become “a royal priesthood”? It is by the right of the atonement by the Cross of Christ that this has been accomplished. Are we prepared to purposely disregard ourselves and to launch out into the priestly work of prayer? The continual inner-searching we do […]
  • Have You Come to “When” Yet? June 20, 2017
    The Lord restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. —Job 42:10A pitiful, sickly, and self-centered kind of prayer and a determined effort and selfish desire to be right with God are never found in the New Testament. The fact that I am trying to be right with God is actually a sign that […]
  • The Service of Passionate Devotion June 19, 2017
    …do you love Me?…Tend My sheep. —John 21:16Jesus did not say to make converts to your way of thinking, but He said to look after His sheep, to see that they get nourished in the knowledge of Him. We consider what we do in the way of Christian work as service, yet Jesus Christ calls […]
  • Keep Recognizing Jesus June 18, 2017
    …Peter…walked on the water to go to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid… —Matthew 14:29-30The wind really was boisterous and the waves really were high, but Peter didn’t see them at first. He didn’t consider them at all; he simply recognized his Lord, stepped out in recognition of […]
  • Beware of Criticizing Others June 17, 2017
    Judge not, that you be not judged. —Matthew 7:1Jesus’ instructions with regard to judging others is very simply put; He says, “Don’t.” The average Christian is the most piercingly critical individual known. Criticism is one of the ordinary activities of people, but in the spiritual realm nothing is accomplished by it. The effect of criticism […]
