The Great Need for Discernment

by Zac Poonen Imagine that you were in Palestine over 1960 years ago and that you heard of the ministry of someone called “Jesus of Nazareth” who was healing the sick. Not having seen Him yourself, you are delighted when you come across a large crowd attending a healing meeting in Jerusalem, with someone called…

The Secret Of Spiritual Strength

by Andrew Murray We must remember that, although the Bible is very precious and reading it is very blessed and necessary, Bible reading and prayer, in themselves, are not fellowship with Jesus. What we need is to meet with Jesus every morning and to say, “Lord, here is a new day again, and I am…

If Thou but Suffer God to Guide Thee

      by George Neumark     If thou but suffer God to guide thee, And hope in Him thro’ all thy ways, He’ll give the strength, what-e’er betide thee, And bear thee thro the evil days; Who trust in God’s unchanging love Builds on the rock that naught can move. Obey, thou restless…

When Jesus Bled Alone

by Sandeep Poonen There are two separate times when Jesus suffered so greatly that he bled. One time was when others hit Him. But the other time was when nobody was within even a stone’s throw of Him. Jesus bled while on Calvary. And most Christians are well aware of this. But Jesus also bled…

The Importance of Prayer and Meditation

by Felix Neff To those whose spiritual life has gradually become feeble and languishing, I say without hesitation that this evil arises from their neglect of prayer and meditation. They are content to know these things without practicing them. They speak of the grace of God, but they do seek it not. They know Jesus…

Never Let Any Man Become Necessary to You

by A.W. Tozer To the one who is advanced enough to hear it I would say, “Never let anyone become necessary to you.” Be meek enough to learn from the lowly and wise enough to learn from the enlightened. Be quick to profit by the experiences of others and stay alert to the voice of…

Goliath Had a Brother

by Francis Frangipane Here’s the scene: You are in a battle against sickness, oppression or some similar struggle. You seek God, and in some way, the grace of God touches your life. Your victory may have come through a word or prayer or some other encouragement, but you absolutely know the Lord has delivered you….

The Flow of Obedience
