Who Is Sufficient?

2 Corinthians 2:16 Believing in grace for past and future trials is easy, but resting in grace for the immediate need is true faith. Believer, grace is sufficient right now. Do not say that this is a new trouble, but if you do, remember that the grace of God is always new. Do not complain … Continue reading

Eternally Secure

Isaiah 65:19 The voice of weeping shall be no more heard. The glorified weep no more, for all outward a causes of grief are gone. There are no broken friendships, nor blighted prospects in heaven. Poverty, famine, peril, persecution, and slander, are unknown there. No pain distresses, no thought of death or bereavement saddens. They … Continue reading

Trust Ye In The Lord

Isaiah 26:4 Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength. Seeing that we have such a God to trust to, let us rest upon Him with all our weight; let us resolutely drive out all unbelief, and endeavour to get rid of doubts and fears, which so much … Continue reading

Allusion To Mercy

“The Lord hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad.” — Psalms 126:3 Some Christians are sadly prone to look on the dark side of everything, and to dwell more upon what they have gone through than upon what God has done for them. Ask for their impression of the Christian life, and … Continue reading

Wait

Oh, think not, believer, that your sorrows are out of God’s plan; they are necessary parts of it. “We must, through much tribulation, enter the kingdom.” Learn, then, even to “count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations.” “O let my trembling soul be still, And wait thy wise, thy holy will! I … Continue reading

Forsaken By God?

I read this, this week and found it so encouraging. During seasons of intense trial it’s easy to wonder why. Why would God allow all this to happen to me. What have I done wrong? Why so much all at once? Is this really the only way to work out my sanctification? I know all … Continue reading

Happy Valentines Day!

Today, I have a group of people on my heart. Those of you who want marriage and have prayed for marriage, but, so far it hasn’t come. For some singles Valentines is the most depressing day of the year. I can sympathize with you. But, it doesn’t have to be!!! Instead of looking at what … Continue reading

Sing When Troubled

Dost thou not know that thy God loves thee in the midst of all this? Thou shalt yet, amidst the splendours of eternity, forget the trials of time, or only remember them to bless the God who led thee through them, and wrought thy last good by them. Come, sing in the midst of tribulation. … Continue reading

The Rain Is Over

The time is approaching when we will lie on our deathbeds. Oh long-expected day, come quickly! The best thing a Christian can do is die and be with Christ, for this is “far better” (Phil 1:23) than life in the flesh. When we lie on our deathbeds panting out our life, we shall remember the … Continue reading

The Iron Did Swim

“The iron did swim.” — 2 Kings 6:9 The axe-head seemed hopelessly lost, and as it was borrowed, the honour of the prophetic band was likely to be imperilled, and so the name of their God to be compromised. Contrary to all expectation, the iron was made to mount from the depth of the stream … Continue reading

He Cannot Change

“His ways are everlasting.” — Habakkuk 3:6 What he hath done at one time, he will do yet again. Man’s ways are variable, but God’s ways are everlasting. There are many reasons for this most comforting truth: among them are the following-the Lord’s ways are the result of wise deliberation; he ordereth all things according … Continue reading

Take this one “A bruised reed He will not break, and a smoking flax He will not quench.” (Is. 42:3). Does this meet your need? Here is a reed … Continue reading

Our Continued Experience

It is in spiritual things that our continued experience of the King’s goodness is most noticed. Our strength has been renewed like the eagle’s (Is. 40:31). We have had huge wants and bottomless depths of need. Yet, great God, the treasures of Your grace have been everlasting mines, as deep as our helpless miseries and … Continue reading

We Will Not Fear

“The very hairs of your head are all numbered” (Matt. 10:30) This verse literally means what it says. God’s wisdom and knowledge are so great that He even knows the number of hairs on your head. His providence descends to the minute dust articles in a summer storm. He numbers the gnats in the sunshine … Continue reading

He Will Heal

I believe that God, who has appointed it, has also measured your trouble, set its bounds, and will bring it to an end. His gracious design is in all your difficulties. Do not think that God deals roughly with His children and gives them needless pain. “He does not afflict willingly, nor grieve the children … Continue reading
