The Everlasting Service

by Frances R Havergal Author of, “Take My Life and Let It be” A promise only differentiated from a threat by one thing, love. But that makes all the difference. To those who are still enemies in their minds, the prospect of serving forever would be anything but pleasant. But when the enmity is slain…

Unoffendable

by Francis Frangipane “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh” (Ezek. 36:26). God has a new heart for us that cannot be offended, an “unoffendable” heart. Beloved, possessing an unoffendable…

His Excellent Greatness

by T. Austin-Sparks Some of the passages which have provided the background for our meditations have referred very definitely and precisely to the excellency and exceeding greatness of the Lord Jesus. One basic passage of tremendous implication is that which came from His own lips:….”no one knoweth the Son, save the Father…..” That is a…

Perfectly Weak

by Francis Frangipane According to the Scriptures, Moses was “educated in all the learning of the Egyptians.” Indeed, as a prince in Egypt, Moses had grown to be a “man of power in words and deeds” (Acts 7:22). Thus, it is hard to equate this eloquent and cultured man with the stammering shepherd who, at…

I Can’t Talk to You… Unless!

by David Wilkerson Sadly, great numbers of Christians do not know God’s voice. Some can go for months, even years, without ever receiving an intimate word from the Lord in their inner man.

He Will Make a Way

Yet: Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer…

by David Wilkerson Dearly Beloved: WHEN YOU HURT – GO TO YOUR SECRET CLOSET AND WEEP OUT ALL YOUR DESPAIR! Jesus wept. Peter wept – bitterly! Peter carried with him the hurt of having denied the very Son of God. Yet those bitter tears worked in him a sweet miracle. He came back to shake…

You are Special to Your Heavenly Father

by David Wilkerson I will never forget the pain I endured when one of my teenage children came to me and confessed, “Dad, I’ve never once felt as if I’ve pleased you. I’ve never felt worthy of your love. I feel like I’ve let you down my whole life. You must be really disappointed in…

The Right Kind of Poverty

by Octavius Winslow “Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:3 Cultivate above all spiritual conditions, prayerfully, earnestly, and fervently, poverty of spirit.
