The Importance of DIfficulty
'Find the Call' from Andy Castro

There is this gravely false notion that once we commit ourselves to following Christ, life will just be better as a whole in a short period of time. This is not true. Once a decision has been made to make a change in our life for the good, whether we are followers of Christ or not, life will get more difficult just as sure…(continue reading article)

A Small Thing
''Christ in You...'' from Dale Krebbs

 There is a word in the English language that is very small but unimaginably important - and can be frightening.  Sometimes it generates an overwhelming fright, even terror for this writer. It has started wars, caused sadness, sorrow, anger and joy. In the plural, that word is simply: "Words"! Words…(continue reading article)

Miracles Still Happen
'Refreshment in Refuge' from Gina Burgess

 Listen children, miracles of God happen every single day.   The problem is that the Bride of Christ who is sick with unbelief never recognizes the miracles, or so it seems.   I had forgotten that I witnessed several miracles in one weekend, and then heard of three more a day or two later. It is amazing…(continue reading article)

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)

Daily Devotionals  for  January 22

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
What Am I Looking At?

Do we expect God to come to us with His blessings and save us? He says - Look unto Me, and be saved. The great difficulty spiritually is to concentrate on God, and it is His blessings that make it difficult. Troubles nearly always make us look to God; His blessings are apt to make us look elsewhere. The teaching…… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"
Morning and Evening for December 10

"So shall we ever be with the Lord." - 1 Thessalonians 4:17 Even the sweetest visits from Christ, how short they are-and how transitory! One moment our eyes see him, and we rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory, but again a little time and we do not see him, for our beloved withdraws himself from…… — (click here to read more)

Daily Light on the Daily Path

This God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness, for his… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
Christian Liberality

"Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble."   Psalms 41:1 To think about the poor and let them lie on our hearts is a Christian man's duty; for Jesus put them with us and near us when He said, "The poor ye have always with you." Many give their money to the poor in a hurry, without thought; and many more… — (click here to read more)

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Teves 24'

The Scriptures exhort us to pray for the peace of Yerushalayim (Jerusalem). What does this really mean? Should we pray, for example, that the conflict between Jews and Arabs would cease? Such prayers are good, but I believe God is calling us to ask for more. The Hebrew word translated shalom (peace) in the above passage involves sharing a deep unity and… — (click here to read more)

When Pigs Sing

Paul Dickson once said, "Never try to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and it annoys the pig." I used to work on farms during the summers of my teen years. One farmer, Robin Wright (no not THAT Robin Wright...this was a guy 20 years older than me), raised hogs. Every now and then I would have the chance…… — (click here to read more)

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
What's happening!?

Today we stay with the thought that half our spiritual perplexities would never arise if we started out by being prepared not to understand immediately the things that God does or allows. We must accept that one of the fundamental principles of the Christian life is the truth that there will be many times when God will…… — (click here to read more)

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen
Mercy

Mercy - The Greek word for mercy (eleos) carries with it the sense of active compassion occurring as a special and immediate regard to the misery resulting from sin. In the Old Testament, this compassion is tied directly to knowing God (Hosea 6:6). It is important to understand the difference between grace…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — January 22

"Faithful are the wounds of a friend," says the Holy Spirit in Proverbs 27:6. And lest we imagine that the preacher is the one who does the wounding, I want to read Job 5:17,18: "Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: for he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth,… … — (click here to read more)

The Believer's Daily Remembrancer
I would have you without carefulness. - 1 Corinthians 7:32

I would have you without carefulness. - 1 Corinthians 7:32

Anxiety, or carefulness, is very injurious; it divides the heart, distracts the mind, chokes the word, leads to distrust, and destroys our peace. It is inconsistent with our profession; we have resigned all into the hands of the Lord, and should leave all to His blessing.
