Daily Devotionals  for  July 26

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
The Account With Purity

We begin by trusting our ignorance and calling it innocence, by trusting our innocence and calling it purity; and when we hear these rugged statements of Our Lord's, we shrink and say - But I never felt any of those awful things in my heart. We resent what Jesus Christ reveals. Either Jesus Christ is the supreme Authority…… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"
Morning and Evening for June 7

"Ye that love the Lord hate evil." - Psalm 97:10 Thou hast good reason to "hate evil," for only consider what harm it has already wrought thee. Oh, what a world of mischief sin has brought into thy heart! Sin blinded thee so that thou couldst not see the beauty of the Saviour; it made thee deaf so that thou…… — (click here to read more)

Daily Light on the Daily Path
Morning / Evening Devotional — July 26

By faith Abraham, ... called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed. He shall choose our inheritance for us. — He led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye. As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
A Change of Name

"And it shall be at that day, saith the LORD, that thou shalt call Me Ishi; and shalt call Me no more Baali; for I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name."   Hosea 2:16-17 That day has come.

Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life
Rejection

The old playground. Time to choose up teams for a game of baseball. When I was very young I got used to the distinction of being rejected until the very last.

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
Nothing too trivial

We spend another day considering how Ruth finds herself gleaning a field which belonged to Boaz, not by chance but by divine guidance.

The fact…… — (click here to read more)

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen
Hope

Hope - In Hebrew, the root word is qawa. It means to wait with eager expectation. It is sometimes translated into English as "wait" instead of "hope". Biblical hope is not wishful thinking.
