Look from the place where thou art
       Let us think for a moment of the blessedness of faith. Our own littleness and nothingness sometimes becomes bondage. We are so small in our own eyes we dare not claim God's mighty promises. We say: "If I could be sure I was in God's will I could trust ... read more

Look from the top
      Yes, our perplexities would become plain if we kept on a spiritual elevation. Often when the traveler quite loses his way he can discern it again from some hilltop where all the winding paths on which he has come appear behind him, and the whole homeward ... read more

Looking unto Jesus
      There must be a constant looking unto Jesus, or, as the German Bible states it, an offlooking upon Jesus-that is, looking off from the evil, refusing to see it, not letting the mind dwell upon it for a second. We should have mental eyelids as well as phys ... read more

Lord, Is My Heart Tender? Part Two
      Several leaders from a mission field I was visiting approached me with the urgent request to help them make peace between two co-workers. I agreed to talk with both men. The interesting thing was that neither one was willing to give in and admit any wrong ... read more

Love believeth all things
      There is a beautiful expression in the book of Isaiah which reflects with accuracy the depth of the love of God. He said, They are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour (Isaiah 63:8). They lied, but He would not believe it. At lea ... read more

Make you perfect in every good work
      The prayer at the close of the Letter to the Hebrews is beautiful: Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work ... read more

Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried
       Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried. This is the promise for the Lord's coming. It is more than purity. It is to be made white, lustrous or bright. To be purified is to have sin burned out; to be made white is to have the glory of the Lord ... read more

Men ought always to pray
      Let this be a day of prayer. Let us realize that our highest ministry and power is to deal with God for men. Let us be obedient to all the Holy Spirit's voices of prayer in us. Let us consider every pressure a call to prayer. Let us cultivate the spirit ... read more

More than Conquerors
      "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us."-Rom. viii : 37. It is a great thing to be a conqueror in Christian life and conflict. It is a much greater thing to be a conqueror "in all these things" which the ap ... read more

Motives To Service
      The sacrifice is our consecrated service to God and the cords which bind it to the altar are the motives, the impulses which ought to constrain us to a more earnest and entire devotion to Christ and to His work. God wants us so to yield ourselves, living ... read more

My expectation is from him
       when we believe for a blessing, we must take the attitude of faith and begin to act and pray as if we already had it. We must treat God as if He had given us our request. We must lean our weight upon Him for the thing that we have claimed and just take i ... read more

My grace is sufficient for thee
      God allowed the crisis that closed around Jacob, on the night when he bowed at Peniel in supplication, to bring him to the place where he could take hold of God as he never would have done. From that narrow pass of peril Jacob came, enlarged in his faith ... read more

My helpers in Christ Jesus
      Christ's Church is overrun with captains. It is in great need of a few more privates. A few rivers run into the sea, but a larger number run into other rivers. We cannot all be Pioneers, but we can all be helpers. No man is fitted to go in first place un ... read more

My peace I give unto you
      Here lies the secret of abiding peace-God's peace. We give ourselves to God and the Holy Spirit takes possession of our hearts. It is indeed "Peace, peace." But it is at this precise point that the devil begins to interfere, and he does it through our ... read more

Neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling
      We know what it is to be fireproof or to be waterproof. But it is a greater thing to be sin proof. it is possible to be so filled with the Spirit of Jesus that all the shafts of the enemy glance off our heavenly armor. It is possible to so know the presen ... read more

Nevertheless, David took the castle of Zion
      If you seem to have so much fighting to do, it may be because you did not have one sharp, decisive battle to begin with. It is far easier to have one great battle than to keep on skirmishing all your life. I know men who spend forty years fighting what th ... read more

None of these things move me
       The best evidence of God's presence is the devil's growl. So once wrote Charles H. Spurgeon in The Sword and the Trowel. That little sentence has helped many a tried and tired child of God to stand fast and even rejoice under the fiercest attacks of th ... read more

Not as I will but as thou wilt
      There are two attitudes in which our will should be given to God. First, we should have the surrendered will. This is where we must all begin, by yielding up to God our natural will and having Him possess it. But next, He wants us to have the victorious w ... read more

Not my will, but thine
      Jesus who once suffered in Gethsemane will be our strength and our victory, too. We may fear, we may also sink, but let us not be dismayed, and we shall yet praise Him and look back from a finished course and say, Not one thing hath failed of all the good ... read more

Not ourselves, but Christ Jesus
      Your Christian influence, your reputation as a worker for God and your standing among your brethren may be an idol to which you must die before you can be free to live for Jesus alone. If you have ever noticed the type on a printed page, you must have see ... read more

Now are we the sons of God
      We are the sons of God. We are not merely called such or even legally declared so, but we actually are sons of God by receiving the life and nature of God. And so we are the very brethren of our Lord, not only in His human nature, but still more so in His ... read more

Now it is high time to awake out of sleep
      Let us wake out of sleep, let us be alert, let us be alive to the great necessities that really concern us. Let us put off the garments of the night and the indulgences of the night, the loose robes of pleasure and the flowing garments of repose. The fest ... read more

Now mine eyes seeth thee
      We must recognize the true character of our self-life and its real virulence and vileness. We must consent to its destruction, and we must take it ourselves, as Abraham did Isaac, and lay it at the feet of God in willing sacrifice. This is a seemingly imp ... read more

Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous
      God seems to love to work by paradoxes and contradictions. In the transformations of grace, the bitter is the base of the sweet, night is the mother of day and death is the gate of life. Many people want to have power. But, how is power produced? The othe ... read more

Offices And Relations Of The Holy Ghost
      I. The Holy Spirit in Relation to the Godhead. This Divine person has a special place in the Trinity, and in the Divine economy. With respect to the Father, He is spoken of as proceeding from Him; the same term is also used of His relation to the ... read more

Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering
      Beloved, are you ministering to Christ? Arc you doing it with your hands? Are you doing it with your substance and with your gifts? Is He getting the best at your table? And when He does not come to fill the chair, is it free to His representative, His po ... read more

Partnership With God
      The members of an English publishing firm recently sat down together to their annual dinner in Exeter Hall. There were more than two thousand partners at the table. It was a strange sight to look at that immense crowd of men and realise that they were one ... read more

Peace be unto you
      Peace be unto you. These words are a type of Jesus' first appearing to our hearts when He comes to bring us His peace and to teach us to trust Him and to love Him. But there is a second peace which He has to give. Jesus said unto them again, Peace be unt ... read more

Person And Attributes Of The Holy Ghost
      "God hath not given us the Spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."--2 Tim. 1:7. I. The Holy Spirit is a Person. The Holy Ghost is a distinct individual, and not a vague influence, or a phase of Divine working. Just ... read more

Personal Responsibility
      There were few in these days of our Lord who had not either seen or heard of a Roman triumphal procession, or witnessed on a smaller scale the pageants of Herod; and they had heard all over the world of the majestic and magnificent entrance to the capital ... read more

      "I have you in my heart" (Phil. 1: 7). "To me to live is Christ and to die is gain" (Phil. 1:21). The first chapter of Philippians gives us a portrait of the Apostle's own heart and character. It is drawn by his own hand. Yet he is free from egotism, an ... read more

      "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus" (Phil. 2: 5). Every great creation must have an arch-type and pattern. Many a waiting year and many a patient effort is spent in perfecting the model of some marvelous invention which is to revolu ... read more

      "For I have no man like-minded, who will naturally care for your state. "For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's. "But ye know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the gospel. "Yet I suppo ... read more

      "That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made comformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead" (Phil. 3: 10, 11). The temper of which we have been sp ... read more

      "Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting tho ... read more

Philippians Chapter 6 A SPIRIT OF LOVE, JOY, AND PEACE
      "I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche that they be of the same mind in the Lord. . . . Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by p ... read more

      "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, t ... read more

Philippians Chapter 8 THE GREAT SECRET
      "I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all thin ... read more

      "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus" (Phil. 4: 19). There are some souls that always seem to be kept on scant measure. Their spiritual garments are threadbare, their faces pinched, and their whole beari ... read more

Power For Service
      Man is born the most impotent creature on the face of the earth. The young brute grows into its prime while the infant is still a helpless child. And morally, he is still more weak . His own passions are stronger than he. Every temptation bears him away, ... read more

Pray without ceasing
       An important help in the life of prayer is the habit of bringing everything to God, moment by moment, as it comes to us in life. This may become a habit the same way all habits are formed: repeated and constantly attended, moment by moment, until that wh ... read more

Pray ye therefore
      Prayer is the mighty force that will move missionary work. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest (Matthew 9:38). We are asking God to touch the hearts of men every day by the Holy Spirit, so that the ... read more

Praying always . . . for all saints
      What a priceless bit of counsel! Stop praying so much for yourself; begin to ask unselfish things, and see if God will not give you faith. See how much easier it will be to believe for another than for your own concerns. Try the effect of praying for the ... read more

Preserved Blameless
      “I pray God your whole spirit, and soul, and body be preserved blameless until the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” “Faithful is he that calleth you who also will do it” (I Thess. 5:23, 24) It is one thing for the ship to weigh her anchor and sprea ... read more

Prove me now herewith
      I once heard an old man say something that I have never forgotten. "When God tests you it is a good time for you to test Him by putting His promises to the proof. Claim from Him just as much as your trials have made necessary." There are two ways of get ... read more

Prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God
      The water in a steam locomotive may be at any one of three temperatures. It may be cold, although clean and ready for the fire. It may be hot, very hot-hot enough to scald you, almost boiling. Or the water may be just one degree hotter-at the boiling poin ... read more

Psalms Chapter 1 THE IDEAL MAN -- PSALM 1

Psalms Chapter 10 THE MILLENNIAL KING -- PSALM 72
      This Psalm has primary reference to Solomon, and is called a Psalm or Song for Solomon. But it is greater than even Solomon in all his glory, and reaches its true fulfillment in the "King of kings and Prince of Peace," of whom Solomon was but a type. Davi ... read more
