Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
The Offering Of The Natural

Paul is not dealing with sin in this chapter of Galatians, but with the relation of the natural to the spiritual. The natural must be turned into the spiritual by sacrifice, otherwise a tremendous divorce will be produced in the actual life. Why should God ordain the natural to be sacrificed? God did not. It is not God's…… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"
Morning and Evening for January 22

"Son of man, What is the vine tree more than any tree, or than a branch which is among the trees of the forest?" - Ezekiel 15:2 These words are for the humbling of God's people; they are called God's vine, but what are they by nature more than others? They, by God's goodness, have become fruitful,…… — (click here to read more)

Daily Light on the Daily Path
Morning / Evening Devotional — December 10

No man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day. — The Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom. — We are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
God Is Our Ally

"But if thou shalt indeed obey His voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries."   Exodus 23:22 The LORD Christ in the midst of His people is to be acknowledged and obeyed.

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Kislev 10'

Here is perhaps King David's greatest moment. After his humiliating exposure before the nation, and the death of his newborn son, he could have turned and blamed Bat-Sheva (Bathsheba) for everything. "It was all your fault! You were bathing on that rooftop on purpose to cause me to sin! I wish I had never laid eyes on you!"We can well imagine such words… — (click here to read more)

Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
"Come up on this level too"

Yesterday we ended with the statement: "Ultimately, the problems and difficulties of life are all spiritual." What exactly does this mean? Reflect again on the psalmist's problem.

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen
Life

Life - Life is a paradox. In this verse, Paul presents us with one of the most paradoxical truths of existence. What seems like "life" to those whose worldview is determined by the best the world has to offer is in reality only death. Real life is found only in life with God. This Greek word is familiar…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — December 10

Emerson complains in one of his essays that society tends to overlook our essential humanity and to think of us as being what we do. There should be no farmers, he argues, or carpenters, or painters; there should only be men who farm and paint and do carpenter work. This distinction is fine but vastly important, for the most vital thing about… … — (click here to read more)

Why dost Thou strive against Him? - Job 33:13

A believer strive against his God! Yes, it is sometimes the case; he may strive against some of the doctrines of His word; or, against some of the dispensations of His providence; or, against some of the commands He has issued. But why dost strive against Him?

His wisdom is infinite. His love is…
