Proverbs 12:21 - No harm befalls the righteous, But the wicked are filled with trouble.
Words to Ponder
A soul that is capable of God can be filled with nothing else but God; nothing but God can fill a soul that is capable of God. Though a gracious heart knows that it is capable of God, and was made for God, carnal hearts think without reference to God. But a gracious heart, being enlarged to be capable of God, and enjoying somewhat of him, can be filled by nothing in the world; it must only be God himself. Therefore you will observe, that whatever God may give to a gracious heart, a heart that is godly, unless he gives himself it will not do. - Jeremiah Burroughs (1599-1646)

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
Holiness V. Hardness Towards God

The reason many of us leave off praying and become hard towards God is because we have only a sentimental interest in prayer. It sounds right to say that we pray; we read books on prayer which tell us that prayer is beneficial, that our minds are quieted and our souls uplifted when we pray; but Isaiah implies that God is…… — (click here to read more)

"Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?" - Hebrews 1:14 Angels are the unseen attendants of the saints of God; they bear us up in their hands, lest we dash our foot against a stone.

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
Stirred - but not shaken

We continue expanding the theme we touched on yesterday - the danger of allowing our faith to become more man-centered than God-centered.

A good deal of "Christian counseling"…… — (click here to read more)

Understanding - In Greek, sunesis. This is a Greek noun that comes from a Greek verb. The verb is the important word because it comes from two other words, sun which means "together with" and hiemi what means "to send or put". So, we get "to put together with" a long hand way of saying "comprehend".…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — March 30

If you have ever given much thought to this present world in which we live, you have some idea of the power of interpretation. The world is a stable fact, quite unchanged by the passing of years, but how different is modern man's view of the world from the view our fathers held. The world is for all of us not only what it is; it is what we believe it to…… — (click here to read more)

The Believer's Daily Remembrancer
"Yea, He loved the people." Deuteronomy 33:3

"Yea, He loved the people." Deuteronomy 33:3

AND what were the people whom He loved? Poor, oppressed, rebellious, stiff-necked, hard-hearted, unworthy creatures. Just such are His people by nature now. Such are we. Yet He loves us; pities us; and distinguishes us from others around us. He spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up…
