Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
The Witness Of The Spirit

We are in danger of getting the barter spirit when we come to God, we want the witness before we have done what God tells us to do. "Why does not God reveal Himself to me?"

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
The Ultimate Discovery
