I am with you always
      Oh, how it helps and comforts us in the plodding of life to know that we have with us the Christ who spent the first thirty years of His life swinging a hammer in the carpenter shop at Nazareth, covered with sweat and grimy dust, physically weary as we of ... read more

I called him alone, and blessed
      Raising rice in the Orient is a beautiful process. The rice is sown on a morass of mud and water ploughed up by great buffaloes. After a few weeks the pale green shoots spring up, appearing above the water. The seed has been sown very thickly and the plan ... read more

I do always those things that please him
      It is a good thing to keep short accounts with God. I was very much struck some years ago with an interpretation of the verse: So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God (Romans 14:12). The thought it conveys is that of accounting to God ... read more

I have overcome the world
      Christ has overcome for us every one of our four terrible foes: Sin, Sickness, Sorrow, Satan. He has borne our sin, and we may lay all, even including our sinfulness itself, on Him. He has borne our sickness, and we may detach ourselves from our old infir ... read more

I in them, and thou in me
      If we would be enlarged to the full measure of God's purpose, let us endeavor to realize something of our own capacities for His filling. We little know the size of a human soul and spirit. Never, until He renews, cleanses and enters the heart, can we ha ... read more

I knew a man in Christ
      It is a great deliverance to lose one's self. There is no heavier millstone than self-consciousness. It is so easy to become introverted and coiled around ourselves in our spiritual consciousness. There is nothing that is so easy to fasten onto as our mi ... read more

I press toward the mark
       We have thought much about what we have received. Let us think of the things we have not received, of some of the vessels that have not yet been filled, of some of the places in our lives that the Holy Spirit has not yet possessed for God and signalized ... read more

I the Lord, the first, and with the last
      Thousands of people get stranded after they have embarked on the great voyage of holiness because they have depended upon the experience rather than on the Author of it. They had supposed that they were thoroughly and permanently delivered from all sin, a ... read more

I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you
       It is a blessed moment when we are born again and a new heart is created in us after the image of God. It is a more blessed moment when, in this new heart, Christ Himself is born and Christmas time is reproduced in us as we, in some real sense, become in ... read more

I will . . . cause you to walk in my statutes
      The highest spiritual condition is one where life is spontaneous and flows without effort, like the deep floods of Ezekiel's river, where the struggles of the swimmer ceased, and he was borne by the current's resistless force. So God leads us into spiri ... read more

I will be with him in trouble
      We often ask the question, "Why didn't God help me sooner?" It is not His order. He must first adjust us to the situation and cause us to learn our lesson from it. His promise is, I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. He fi ... read more

I will clothe thee with change of raiment
      For Paul every exercise of the Christian life was simply the grace of Jesus Christ imparted to him and lived out by him. To be holy meant to put on the Lord Jesus and all the robes of His perfect righteousness which Paul describes so often in his beautifu ... read more

I will joy in the God of my salvation
      The secret of joy is not to wait until you feel happy, but to rise, by an act of faith, out of the depression which is dragging you down and begin to praise God as an act of choice. This is the meaning of such passages as these: Rejoice in the Lord always ... read more

I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee
       It is most cheering to know that although we err and bring upon ourselves many troubles that might easily have been averted, yet God does not forsake even His mistaken child, but on his humble repentance and supplication is ever ready both to pardon and ... read more

I will put my spirit within you
      I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments. I will put my fear in [your] hearts, that [you] shall not depart from me (Jeremiah 32:40). Would you not find that a blessed rest when you are worn out ... read more

I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee
      God has three ways of helping us. First, He says, I will strengthen thee. In other words, He is saying, "I will make you a little stronger yourself." Second, He adds, I will help thee. By that we understand Him to say, "I will add my strength to your s ... read more

I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper
      In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof is no death (Proverbs 12:28). That is the secret of healing. Be right with God. Live in the consciousness of it and nothing can hurt you. All the fiery darts of the devil will glance off the ... read more

If any man hear my voice, and open the door
      Some of us are starving 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 you have, start larger plans for service and blessing and you will soon find that the Holy Spirit is bef ... read more

If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man
      Speech is one of the supreme distinctions between man and the lower animals. The power of expressing thought in articulation and written language is one of the high prerogatives of rational beings. A man's conversation is the real test of his character a ... read more

If the household be too little for the lamb
      If the household be too little for the lamb. . . . What does all this mean for us as redeemed men and women? Surely, this-that we have no right to claim the purchase of the Savior's blood for ourselves alone, and that we are guilty of selfishness, dishon ... read more

If ye then be risen
      God is waiting today to mark the opening hours, for every ready and willing heart, with a touch of life and power that will lift us to higher pleasures and offer to our vision grander horizons of hope and holy service. We shall not need to look far to dis ... read more

In due season we shall reap, if we faint not
      If the least of us could only anticipate the eternal issues that will probably spring from the humblest services of faith, we would count our sacrifices and labors occasions of honor and opportunity and would cease to speak of trials and sacrifices for Go ... read more

In him we live, and move
      The hand of Gehazi, and even the staff of Elisha, could not heal the lifeless boy. It required the living touch of the prophet's own divinely quickened flesh to infuse vitality into the cold clay. Lip to lip, hand to hand, heart to heart, he must touch t ... read more

Instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree
      God's sweetest memorial is the transformed thorn and thistle blooming with flowers of peace and goodness where once recriminations grew. God is waiting to make just such memorials in your life out of the things that are hurting you most today. Take the g ... read more

instruments Of Service
      This passage gives us an inventory of God’s favorite instruments—of the things that God likes best to use, and the people that God especially chooses; and some of you may be surprised to find yourselves not included in this inventory; some of you may feel ... read more

      "In the year that King Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne high and lifted up." (Isa. 6: 1.) The eighth century before Christ gave birth to the most momentous epochs of ancient history. We find in it the eras both of Babylon and Rome, ... read more

Isaiah Chapter 10 A NAIL IN A SURE PLACE
      "And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne in his father's house. And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father's house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels o ... read more

Isaiah Chapter 11 THE KING AND THE MAN
      "Behold a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment. And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land." (Is. 32 ... read more

      "In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength; and you would not." (Is. 30: 15.) The historical setting of this chapter furnishes the key to its spiritual meaning. In the days of Isaiah two great empires were contending for the control of the ... read more

      "Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? Who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? He that walks righteously, and speaks uprightly; he that despises the gain of oppressions, that shakes his hands from holding of bribes, that stops his ... read more

      "Until the Spirit be poured out from on high and the wilderness become a fruitful field and the fruitful field be counted for a forest." (Is. 32: 15.) The prophet Isaiah is not only a witness to the Messiah but also to the Holy Ghost. It was the touch ... read more

      "I will pour water upon him that is thirsty and floods upon the dry ground." (Is. 44:3.) The Holy Spirit is falling upon His people. An organized religious movement of great power is sweeping over Great Britain and centering at the present time in its ... read more

      "The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; to procl ... read more

      "The voice of him that cries in the wilderness; prepare you the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God." (Is. 40: 3.) This chapter opens the third section of the prophecies of the book of Isaiah relating to the return, consi ... read more

Isaiah Chapter 18 THE PASSION OF GOD
      I have long time held my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once (margin: I will gasp and pant together. R.V.). (Is. 42: 14.) This impassioned text has been appropriately ... read more

      "Behold My servant whom I uphold, My elect in whom My soul delights. I have put my Spirit upon Him. He shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles; he shall not cry nor lift up nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. A bruised reed shall he not brea ... read more

Isaiah Chapter 2 SIN AND SALVATION
      "Come, now, and let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." (Isa. 1: 18.) The method of the ancient prophet was very different from a mo ... read more

      "You are My servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified." (Is. 49: 3.) We have already seen that the expression, "servant of the Lord," is used in three senses in the book of Isaiah. The first has reference to Israel, the second to the Lord Jesus Ch ... read more

      "As many were astonished at You; his visage was so marred, more than the sons of men; so shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at Him: for that which had not been told them they shall see, and that which they had not heard shal ... read more

Isaiah Chapter 23 ISAIAH'S GOSPEL
      "Ho, every one that thirsts, come to the waters, and he that has no money; come, buy and eat; yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend money for that which is not bread? And your labor for that which satisfies not? He ... read more

Isaiah Chapter 26 THE "FEAR NOTS" OF ISAIAH

Isaiah Chapter 27 FOUR AWAKENINGS

      "Moreover the Lord spoke again unto Ahaz, saying, Ask a sign of the Lord your God; ask it either in the depth or in the height above. But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the Lord. And he said, Hear now, O house of David; is it a small thin ... read more
