A Bar of Steel
      "I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument" (Isa. 41:15). A bar of steel worth five dollars, when wrought into horseshoes, is worth ten dollars. If made into needles, it is worth three hundred and fifty dollars; if into penknife blades, it i ... read more

A Door Opened in Heaven
      "A door opened in heaven" (Rev. 4:1). You must remember that John was in the Isle of Patmos, a lone, rocky, inhospitable prison, for the Word of God and the testimony of Jesus. And yet to him, under such circumstances, separated from all the loved on ... read more

A Simple Prayer
      "I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me" (Acts 27:25). I went to America some years ago with the captain of a steamer, who was a very devoted Christian. When off the coast of Newfoundland he said to me, "The last time I crossed here ... read more

A Very Present Help
      "Why standest thou afar off, O Lord?" (Psalm 10:1.) God is "a very present help in trouble." But He permits trouble to pursue us, as though He were indifferent to its overwhelming pressure, that we may be brought to the end of ourselves, and led to ... read more

Above the Clouds
      "Men see not the bright light which is in the clouds" (Job 37:21). The world owes much of its beauty to cloudland. The unchanging blue of the Italian sky hardly compensates for the changefulness and glory of the clouds. Earth would become a wildernes ... read more

Abundantly Able
      "And being absolutely certain that whatever promise He is bound by, He is able to make good" (Rom. 4:20). We are told that Abraham could look at his own body and consider it as good as dead without being discouraged, because he was not looking at him ... read more

According to Our Faith
      "According to your faith be it unto you" (Matt. 9:29). "Praying through" might be defined as praying one's way into full faith, emerging while yet praying into the assurance that one has been accepted and heard, so that one becomes actually aware ... read more

Achieving the Victory
      "For this our light and transitory burden of suffering is achieving for us a weight of glory" (2 Cor. 4:17). (Weymouth) "Is achieving for us," mark. The question is repeatedly asked--Why is the life of man drenched with so much blood, and blister ... read more

Active Faith
      "If thou canst believe, all things are possible. to him that believeth" (Mark 9:23). Seldom have we heard a better definition of faith than was given once in one of our meetings, by a dear old colored woman, as she answered the question of a young ma ... read more

After The Frost
      "Why go I mourning?" (Psalm 42:9). Canst thou answer this, believer? Canst thou find any reason why thou art so often mourning instead of rejoicing? Why yield to gloomy anticipations? Who told thee that the night would never end in day? Who told the ... read more

      "Alone" (Deut. 32:12). "The hill was steep, but cheered along the way By converse sweet, I mounted on the thought That so it might be till the height was reached; But suddenly a narrow winding path Appeared, and then the Master said, 'My c ... read more

Alone In The Desert
      "And he took them, and went aside privately into a desert place" (Luke 9:10). In order to grow in grace, we must be much alone. It is not in society that the soul grows most vigorously. In one single quiet hour of prayer it will often make more prog ... read more

Alone With God
      "And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day" (Gen. 32:24). Left alone! What different sensations those words conjure up to each of us. To some they spell loneliness and desolation, to others rest and qui ... read more

An Hour In The Garden
      "He went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when evening was come, he was there alone" (Matt. 14:23). The man Christ Jesus felt the need of perfect solitude--Himself alone, entirely by Himself, alone with Himself. We know how much intercourse wit ... read more

Appropriating Faith
      "Arise . . . for we have seen the land, and behold, it is very good; and are ye still? Be not slothful to go, and enter to possess the land: for God hath given it into your hands; a place where there is no want of anything that is in the earth" (Judges ... read more

At Wit's End
      "At their wit's end, they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out" (Ps. 107:27, 28). Are you standing at "Wit's End Corner," Christian, with troubled brow? Are you thinking of what is before you, And all you are bearing no ... read more

Attitude of Trust
      "And it came to pass, before he had done speaking...and he said, Blessed be Jehovah…who hath not forsaken his lovingkindness and his truth" (Gen. 24:15, 27). Every right prayer is answered before the prayer itself is finished--before we have "done s ... read more

Badge of Christ
      " them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments...and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue...that ye may took upon it, and remember all the commandments of the Lord" (Num. 15:38-39). God would have ... read more

Be Definite in Prayer

Be Still
      "And the Lord appeared unto Isaac the same night" (Gen. 26:24). "Appeared the same night," the night on which he went to Beer-sheba. Do you think this revelation was an accident? Do you think the time of it was an accident? Do you think it could ha ... read more

Be Strong
      "Quit you like men, be strong" (1 Cor. 16:13). Do not pray for easy lives! Pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be a ... read more

Be Sure of His Promises
      "Do as thou hast said, that thy name may be magnified forever" (1 Chron. 17:23-24). This is a most blessed phase of true prayer. Many a time we ask for things which are not absolutely promised. We are not sure therefore until we have persevered for s ... read more

Bearing the Sting
      "He opened not his mouth" (Isa. 53:7). How much grace it requires to bear a misunderstanding rightly, and to receive an unkind judgment in holy sweetness! Nothing tests the Christian character more than to have some evil thing said about him. This i ... read more

Beginning Without Finishing
      "He spoke a parable unto them…that men ought always to pray, and not to faint" (Luke 18:1). No temptation in the life of intercession is more common than this of failure to persevere. We begin to pray for a certain thing; we put up our petitions for ... read more

Being Proven
      "There he proved them" (Exod. 15:25). I stood once in the test room of a great steel mill. All around me were little partitions and compartments. Steel had been tested to the limit, and marked with figures that showed its breaking point. Some pieces ... read more

Belief, Not Understanding
      "Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?" (John 11:40). Mary and Martha could not understand what their Lord was doing. Both of them said to Him, "Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had no ... read more

Believe in Order to See
      "Then believed they his words; they sang his praise. They soon forgot his works; they waited not for his counsel; but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert. And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul" ... read more

Believing Before Seeing
      "The land which I do give them, even the children of Israel" (Joshua 1:2). God here speaks in the immediate present. It is not something He is going to do, but something He does do, this moment. So faith ever speaks. So God ever gives. So He is meeti ... read more

Believing Prayer
      "Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way" (John 4:50). "When ye pray, believe" (Mark 11:24). When there is a matter that requires definite prayer, pray t ... read more

Believing Prayer
      "Peter was kept in prison: but prayer (instant and earnest prayer) was made for him" (Acts 12:5, margin). Peter was in prison awaiting his execution. The Church had neither human power nor influence to save him. There was no earthly help, but there ... read more

Believing Prayer
      "Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way" (John 4:50). "When ye pray, believe" (Mark 11:24). When there is a matter that requires definite prayer, pray t ... read more

Bread Corn is Bruised
      "Bread corn is bruised" (Isa. 28:28). Many of us cannot be used to become food for the world's hunger until we are broken in Christ's hands. "Bread corn is bruised." Christ's blessing ofttimes means sorrow, but even sorrow is not too great a pri ... read more

Broken Things
      "By reason of breakings they purify themselves" (Job 41:25). God uses most for His glory those people and things which are most perfectly broken. The sacrifices He accepts are broken and contrite hearts. It was the breaking down of Jacob's natural ... read more

By Death We Live
      "As dying and behold we live" (2 Cor. 6:9). I had a bed of asters last summer, that reached clear across my garden in the country. Oh, how gaily they bloomed. They were planted late. On the sides were yet fresh blossoming flowers, while the tops had g ... read more

By Faith Abraham Obeyed
      "By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed" (Heb. 11:8). Whither he went, he knew not; it was enough for him to know that he went with God. He leant not so much upon the promi ... read more

By Thy Spirit
      "Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith Jehovah of hosts" (Zech. 4:6). My way led up a hill, and right at the foot I saw a boy on a bicycle. He was pedalling up hill against the wind, and evidently found it a tremendously hard work. Just ... read more

Call Back
      "It shall turn to you for a testimony'' (Luke 21:13). Life is a steep climb, and it does the heart good to have somebody "call back" and cheerily beckon us on up the high hill. We are all climbers together, and we must help one another. This mount ... read more

Call Upon the Lord
      "And it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered" (Joel 2:32). Why do not I call on His name? Why do I run to this neighbor and that when God is so near and will hear my faintest call? Why do I sit down ... read more

Can Thine Heart Endure
      "We know not what we should pray for as we ought" (Rom. 8:26). Much that perplexes us in our Christian experience is but the answer to our prayers. We pray for patience, and our Father sends those who tax us to the utmost; for "tribulation worketh p ... read more

Carry Your Cross
      "Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me" (Mark 8:34). The cross which my Lord bids me take up and carry may assume different shapes. I may have to content myself with a lowly and narrow sphere, when ... read more

Cast Down
      "Why art thou cast down, O my soul" (Ps. 43:5). Is there ever any ground to be cast down? There are two reasons, but only two. If we are as yet unconverted, we have ground to be cast down; or if we have been converted and live in sin, then we are rig ... read more

Cast Your Burdens Upon God
      "Look from the top" (Song of Solomon 4:8). Crushing weights give the Christian wings. It seems like a contradiction in terms, but it is a blessed truth. David out of some bitter experience cried: "Oh, that I had wings like a dove! Then would I fly a ... read more

Challenge Thy Mountain in the Lord
      "Concerning the work of my hands command ye me" (Isa. 45:11). Our Lord spoke in this tone when He said, "Father, I will." Joshua used it when, in the supreme moment of triumph, he lifted up his spear toward the setting sun, and cried, "Sun, stand ... read more

Character with Age
      "Like a shock of corn fully ripe" (Job 5:26). A gentleman, writing about the breaking up of old ships, recently said that it is not the age alone which improves the quality of the fiber in the wood of an old vessel, but the straining and wrenching of ... read more

Christ in the Vessel
      "Let us pass over unto the other side" (Mark 4:35). Even when we go forth at Christ's command, we need not expect to escape storms; for these disciples were going forth at Christ's command, yet they encountered the fiercest storm and were in great ... read more

Christ our Consolation
      "His name shall be called Emmanuel . . . God with us." (Matt. 1:23) . "The Prince of Peace" (Isa. 9:6). "There's a song in the air! There's a star in the sky! There's a mother's deep prayer, And a baby's low cry! And the star rains its ... read more

Christ Sometimes Delays His Help
      "I called upon him, but he gave me no answer" (S. of Sol. 5:6). The Lord, when He hath given great faith, hath been known to try it by long delayings. He has suffered His servants' voices to echo in their ears as from a brazen sky. They have knocked ... read more

Christ's Business is Supreme
      "His disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray . . . and he said unto them, When ye pray, say. . . Thy kingdom come" (Luke 11:1, 2). When they said, "Teach us to pray," the Master lifted His eyes and swept the far horizon of God. He gathered ... read more

Claim Victory
      "Thou art my king, 0 God: Command deliverance (victories, margin) for Jacob" (Ps. 44:4 RV). Here is no foe to your growth in grace, no enemy in your Christian work, which was not included in your Savior's conquests. You need not be afraid of th ... read more
