Fret Not Over Evil-doers
      "Fret not thyself" (Ps. 37:1). Do not get into a perilous heat about things. If ever heat were justified, it was surely justified in the circumstances outlined in the Psalm. Evil-doers were moving about clothed in purple and fine linen, and faring sumptuously every day. "Workers of iniquity" were climbing into the supreme places of power, an ...read

Full Salvation
      "And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you who also will do it" (1 Thess. 5:23, 24). Many years since I saw that "without holiness no man shall see the Lord." I began by following after it a ...read

Gentle Leading
      "I will lead on softly, according as the cattle that goeth before me and the children be able to endure" (Gen. 33:14). What a beautiful picture of Jacob's thoughtfulness for the cattle and the children! He would not allow them to be overdriven even for one day. He would not lead on according to what a strong man like Esau could do and expecte ...read

He would not lead on according to what a strong man like Esau could do and expecte ...read

Gentleness of Spirit
      "The servant of the Lord must be gentle" (2 Tim. 2:24). When God conquers us and takes all the flint out of our nature, and we get deep visions into the Spirit of Jesus, we then see as never before the great rarity of gentleness of spirit in this dark and unheavenly world. The graces of the Spirit do not settle themselves down upon us by ch ...read

Give Out The Blessing
      "He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his inner being shall flow rivers of living water" (John 7:38). Some of us are shivering and wondering why the Holy Spirit does not fill us. We have plenty coming in, but we do not give it out. Give out the blessing that you have, start larger plans for service and blessing, and you ...read

Go Forward
      "As soon as the soles of the feet of the priests...shall rest in the waters...the waters shall be cut off" (Joshua 3:13). The people were not to wait in their camps until the way was opened, they were to walk by faith. They were to break camp, pack up their goods, form in line to march, and move down to the very banks before the river would be o ...read

Go Not Without Prayer
      "Watch unto prayer" (1 Peter 4:7). Go not, my friend, into the dangerous world without prayer. You kneel down at night to pray, drowsiness weighs down your eyelids; a hard day's work is a kind of excuse, and you shorten your prayer, and resign yourself softly to repose. The morning breaks; and it may be you rise late, and so your early devoti ...read

God Has Chosen Me
      "I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction" (Isa. 48:10). Does not the Word come like a soft shower, assuaging the fury of the flame? Yes, is it not an asbestos armor, against which the heat has no power? Let the affliction come--God has chosen me. Poverty, thou mayest stride in at my door; but God is in the house already, and He has cho ...read

God in Everything
      "It is the Lord: let him do what seemeth him good". (1 Sam. 3:18) See God in everything, and God will calm and color all that thou dost see!" It may be that the circumstances of our sorrows will not be removed, their condition will remain unchanged; but if Christ, as Lord and Master of our life, is brought into our grief and gloom, "HE will ...read

God is Looking
      "The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him" (2 Chron. 16:9). God is looking for a man, or woman, whose heart will be always set on Him, and who will trust Him for all He desires to do. God is eager to work more mightily now than He ever has thr ...read

God is Not Unobservant
      "I will be still, and I will behold in my dwelling place" (Isa. 18:4, RV). Assyria was marching against Ethiopia, the people of which are described as tall and smooth. And as the armies advance, God makes no effort to arrest them; it seems as though they will be allowed to work their will. He is still watching them from His dwelling place, the ...read

God is Waiting Upon Us
      "And therefore will the Lord wait, that he may be gracious unto you...blessed are all they that wait f or him" (Isa. 30:18). We must not only think of our waiting upon God, but also of what is more wonderful still, of God's waiting upon us. The vision of Him waiting on us, will give new impulse and inspiration to our waiting upon Him. It will ...read

God Knows
      "He knoweth the way that I take" (Job 23:10). Believer! What a glorious assurance! This way of thine--this, it may be, a crooked, mysterious, tangled way--this way of trial and tears. "He knoweth it." The furnace seven times heated--He lighted it. There is an Almighty Guide knowing and directing our footsteps, whether it be to the bitter Mar ...read

God Meant It Unto Good
      "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God" (Rom. 8:28). How wide is this assertion of the Apostle Paul! He does not say, "We know that some things," or "most things," or "joyous things," but "ALL things." From the minutest to the most momentous; from the humblest event in daily providence to the great cr ...read

God Permits Temptation
      "And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, being forty days tempted of the devil" (Luke 4:1-2). Jesus was full of the Holy Ghost, and yet He was tempted. Temptation often comes upon a man with its strongest power when he is nearest to God. As someone has said, "The devil aims h ...read

God Works in the Dark
      "The Lord caused the sea to go back...all that night" (Exod. 14:21). In this verse there is a comforting message showing how God works in the dark. The real work of God for the children of Israel, was not when they awakened and found that they could get over the Red Sea; but it was "all that night." So there may be a great working in your l ...read

God's Best
      "Take the arrows. . . . Smite upon the ground. And he smote twice and stayed. And the man of God was wroth with him, and said, Thou shouldest have smitten five or six times" (2 Kings 13:18, 19). How striking and eloquent the message of these words! Jehoash thought he had done very well when he duplicated and triplicated what to him was cer ...read

God's Mysterious Dealings
      "Thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons" (2 Kings 4:4). They were to be alone with God, for they were not dealing with the laws of nature, nor human government, nor the church, nor the priesthood, nor even with the great prophet of God, but they must needs be isolated from all creatures, from all leaning circumstances, from all p ...read

God's Refreshment
      "The journey is too great for thee" (1 King 19:7). And what did God do with His tired servant? Gave him something good to eat, and put him to sleep. Elijah had done splendid work, and had run alongside of the chariot in his excitement, and it had been too much for his physical strength, and the reaction had come on, and he was depressed. The p ...read
