Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
The Way To Know

The golden rule for understanding spiritually is not intellect, but obedience. If a man wants scientific knowledge, intellectual curiosity is his guide; but if he wants insight into what Jesus Christ teaches, he can only get it by obedience. If things are dark to me, then I may be sure there is something I will not do.…… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
More than Mere Words

"I wilt give you the sure mercies of David."   Acts 13:34 Nothing of man is sure; but everything of God is so.

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Tammuz 21'

There is a story of two men standing outside shul (synagogue). One of the men is reviling a man named Rubenstein incessantly. The other man eventually asks, "Nu?

Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life
Ancient but not Crusty

Ten years ago I was forty-four. My hair was dark. What am I saying? I actually had hair. I was still fairly active, playing softball for the church softball team and even doing some periodic jogging.

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — July 27

The four Gospels tell the story of the life and ministry of Jesus, and in so doing, they follow accurately the ordinary course of biography, giving the facts of His birth, growth, work, death and burial. That is the way with biography: the very word itself suggests it, for it comes from bios, life, and graphein, to write, and means the written history of a…… — (click here to read more)

The Believer's Daily Remembrancer
"I will wait upon the Lord." Isaiah 8:17

"I will wait upon the Lord." Isaiah 8:17

THE Lord hath concealed His face, His favour could not be discovered, but marks of displeasure appeared; yet the church determines not to despond or yield to fear, but to wait upon the Lord who was hiding Himself from the house of Israel, and to look for Him.

Now there were four men with leprosyat the entrance of the city gate. They said to each other, “Why stay here until we die?If we say, ‘We’ll go into the city’—the famine is there, and we will die.
