Wait for the Lord

Wait for the Lord

But they who Wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;

They shall mount up with wings like eagles;

They shall run and not be weary;

They shall walk and not faint.

ISAIAH 40:31

From the Heart

From the Heart

  • by

But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart,

And this defiles a person.

For out of the heart come

Evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander.

MATTHEW 15:18-19

Not Keep Back

Not Keep Back

He will not keep back even the most painful chastisement if He can but thereby Guide His Beloved Child to Come Home and Abide in the Beloved Son.

Christian! pray for Grace to See in every trouble, small or great, the Father’s Finger Pointing to Jesus, and Saying, Abide in Him.

Prone to Wander

Prone to Wander

  • by

Our hearts are continually prone to wander from Him;

Prosperity and enjoyment all too easily satisfy us, dull our spiritual perception, and unfit us for Full Communion with Himself.

It is an Unspeakable Mercy that the Father comes with His Chastisements, makes the world round us all dark and unattractive, leads us to feel more deeply our sinfulness, and for a time lose our joy in what was becoming so dangerous.

He does it in the hope that, when we have found our Rest in Christ in time of trouble, we shall Learn to Choose Abiding in Him as our Only Portion;

And when the affliction is removed, have So Grown More Firmly into Him, that in prosperity He still shall be our Only Joy.

Sending the Trial

Sending the Trial

  • by

Abide in Christ!

This is indeed the Father’s object in sending the trial.

In the storm the tree strikes deeper roots in the soil;

In the hurricane the inhabitants of the house abide within, and rejoice in its shelter.

So by suffering the Father would lead us to enter more deeply into the Love of Christ.

Reject and Keep and Submit

Reject and Keep and Submit

  • by

We must reject whatever is unscriptural

And keep whatever is according to the Scriptures.

At the same time, we must submit ourselves to the Authority of the Holy Spirit,

Not daring to have our own opinions and ideas in instructing men nor serving God according to what pleases our flesh.

Entire Possession

Entire Possession

God must have Entire Possession of us.

He Claims our whole heart and life.

He will Give us the strength to have Fellowship with Christ, to Keep His Commandments, and to Abide in His Love.
