Daily Wisdom
Proverbs 21:29 - A wicked man displays a bold face, But as for the upright, he makes his way sure.
Words to Ponder
In the midst of Paradise with all its wondrous beauty, if God Himself had not come and walked with Adam in the cool of the day it would not have been a very happy place, for unfallen man's delights was in God Himself. His gifts would not supply His place. We have lost Paradise, but we have not lost the Lord. We have got back our joy, though we have not yet got back Paradise. We can find all that will make us happy in Him. It is meeting with the Lord personally, face to face, that gives rest. The blood gives the conscience rest, but the heart craves something more, and that is fellowship with Him who gave us that atoning blood and sprinkled it on our souls. - Andrew Bonar (1810-92)

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
The Initiative Against Drudgery

We have to take the first step as though there were no God. It is no use to wait for God to help us, He will not; but immediately we arise we find He is there. Whenever God inspires, the initiative is a moral one. We must do the thing and not lie like a log. If we will arise and shine, drudgery becomes divinely transfigured.…… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"
Morning and Evening for November 12

"The trial of your faith." - 1 Peter 1:7 Faith untried may be true faith, but it is sure to be little faith, and it is likely to remain dwarfish so long as it is without trials. Faith never prospers so well as when all things are against her: tempests are her trainers, and lightnings are her illuminators.…… — (click here to read more)

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. — If any of you lack wisdom let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally and upbradeth not; and it shall be given him. — The foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
Better Farther On

"Though I have afflicted thee, I will afflict thee no more."   Nahum 1:12 There is a limit to affliction. God sends it, and God removes it. Do you sigh and say, "When will the end be?" Remember that our griefs will surely and finally end when this poor earthly life is over. Let us quietly wait and patiently endure the will of the LORD till He cometh. … — (click here to read more)

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Shevat 23'

Here the prophet Micah exhorts us to God's highest standard.

Justice is to be our goal and the motive for doing justice is love. Love and justice are… — (click here to read more)

Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life
Speed or Desire?

As a youth, and on into my young adult years, I played a number of different sports which required that I run and run fast.

In truth, I was generally somewhere in the…… — (click here to read more)

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
The unyielding Judge

Those who experience the fullness of God's wrath get precisely what they deserve. That may sound hard, but it is true. There is great wisdom in…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — February 19

. . . The truth is that the world does not know where it is going; it has not found life's summum bonum; it is not qualified as a model for the members of society to follow. It is instead puzzled, frightened and frustrated. Generation follows generation into an uncertain future, completely beaten, disappointed and sick at heart. It was to… … — (click here to read more)

The Believer's Daily Remembrancer
Is the Lord's hand waxed short? - Numbers 11:23

Is the Lord's hand waxed short? - Numbers 11:23

No: what He hath done, He can do; and all He hath promised, or His people need, He will do. He has all power. He knows no difficulty. Why then are we cast down? Because we do not believe His word, depend simply on His veracity, and expect all we need from His hand.
