Sunday, January 8th, 2012, Quote & Bible Verse

The Lord is my ... song.  ~ Psalm 118:14

Let us think of God Himself becoming our song.  This is the fullness and perfection of knowing God: so to know Him that He Himself becomes our delight; so to know Him that praise is sweetest, and fullest, and freshest, and gladdest, when we sing of Him.  He who has learned this blessed secret carries the golden key of heaven - no, he has fetched heaven down to earth and need not envy the angels now.  ~Mark Guy Pearse

My God shall be my strength ~Isaiah 49:5
Oh, do not pray for easy lives! Pray to be stronger men! Do not pray for task 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 miracle.  Every day you shall wonder at yourself, at the richness of life which has come in you by the grace of God.

Friday, January 13th, 2012, Quote & Bible Verse 

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.  ~Psalm 5:3

The morning is the gate of the day, and should be well guarded with prayer.  It is on end of the thread on which the day's actions are strung, and should be well knotted with devotion.  If we felt more the majesty of life we should be more careful of its mornings.  He who rushes from his bed to his business and waits not to worship is as foolish as though he had not put on his clothes, or cleansed his face, and as unwise as though he dashed into battle without arms or armor.  Be its ours to bathe in the softly flowing river of communion with God, before the heat of the wilderness and the burden of the way begin to oppress us.  ~Spurgeon   

Saturday, January 14th, 2012, Quote & Bible Verse

He made as though he would have gone further.  ~Luke 24:28 

Is not God always acting thus?  He come to us by His Holy Spirit as He did to these two disciples.  He speaks to us through the preaching of the Gospel, through the Word of God, through the various means of grace and the providential circumstances of life; and having thus spoken, He makes as though He would go further.  If the ear be opened to His voice and the heart to His Spirit, the prayer will then go up, "Lord, abide with me."  But if that voice makes no impression, then He passes on, as He has done thousands of times, leaving the heart at each time harder than before, and the are more closed to the Spirit's call.  

~F. Whitfield
