Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
Direction Of Aspiration

This verse is a description of entire reliance upon God. Just as the eyes of the servant are riveted on his master, so our eyes are up unto God and our knowledge of His countenance is gained (cf. Isaiah 53:1. R.V). Spiritual leakage begins when we cease to lift up our eyes unto Him. The leakage comes not so much through…… — (click here to read more)

My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
Pardon and Forgiveness

"He will not always chide: neither will He keep His anger for ever."   Psalms 103:9 He will chide sometimes, or He would not be a wise Father for such poor, erring children as we are. His chiding is very painful to those who are true, because they feel how sadly they deserve it and how wrong it is on their part to grieve Him. We know what this chiding… — (click here to read more)

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Kislev 12'

Do you ever sit down to pray and experience a loss of words? Over the years I have found that reciting passages of Scripture almost always gets the gears grinding in my mind and heart. It wakes up the inner man (who is sometimes snoozing) and prepares the way for times of intimate fellowship with the Lord. Speaking and pondering God's Word prepares the… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — November 24

There is such a thing as a renaissance, a personal revival. The best illustration is the coming of the springtime on the farm. The snow will lay all winter long, and in some places you don"t see the ground until springtime. How utterly dead everything looks, but you know that life is still there. The trees are stark, but there is life in them.… … — (click here to read more)

The Believer's Daily Remembrancer
I trust in Thy word. - Psalms 119:42

I trust in Thy word. - Psalms 119:42

It is unsafe and improper to trust our feelings or fancies; to listen to suggestions, or judge by appearances; the Christian's guide is God's word, and this should be the object of his trust. If we cannot take God's word and depend upon it, what can we trust?

It is true; on all necessary points plain; it…
