He also performs great signs, even…(continue reading article)

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"

The grace you had yesterday will not do for to-day. Grace is the overflowing favour of God; you can always reckon it is there to draw upon.

Are you saying - Oh,…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer

When they want to get blessed, some people try getting… … — (click here to read more)
