Daily Wisdom
Proverbs 12:15 - The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, But a wise man is he who listens to counsel.
Words to Ponder
To think of God as we sometimes think of a court where a kindly judge, compelled by law, sentences a man to death with tears and apologies, is to think in a manner wholly unworthy of the true God. God is never at cross-purposes with Himself. No attribute of God is in conflict with another. - A.W. Tozer (20th century)

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
Decreasing Into His Purpose

If you become a necessity to a soul, you are out of God's order. As a worker, your great responsibility is to be a friend of the Bridegroom.

And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. Now it was not written for his sake alone,… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
Established and Kept

"But the LORD is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil."   2 Thessalonians 3:3 Men are often as devoid of reason as of faith. There are with us still "unreasonable and wicked men." There is no use in arguing with them or trying to be at peace with them: they are false at heart and deceitful in speech. Well, what of this? Shall we… — (click here to read more)

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Adar 26'

If we want to be in fellowship with the Father, the Messiah, and his Ruach (Spirit), we must break the habit of being easily offended. Yes, we need to confront significant sin, but small slights and minor irritations can simply be overlooked. A person who has not yet been healed of rejection can be easily hurt by many little things. This hurt may turn to… — (click here to read more)

God's self-revelation

We are ready now to close in on our subject and contemplate as far as we are able the nature and character of the God we worship.

We know something about Him as we look out through the lattice of nature, but because the world of nature has been…… — (click here to read more)

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

The Apostle Paul wrote, "We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves" (Romans 15:1).
