teaches the humble His way.
I again saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift, and the
battle is not to the warriors, and neither is bread to the wise, nor
wealth to the discerning, nor favor to men of ability; for time and chance
overtake them all --The mind of man plans his way, but the LORD directs
To Thee I lift up my eyes, O Thou who art enthroned in the heavens!
Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the
eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress; so our eyes look to the LORD
our God --Teach me the way in which I should walk; for to Thee I lift up
O our God, wilt thou not judge them? For we are powerless before this
great multitude who are coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but
our eyes are on Thee.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men
generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
When He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth

O Lord GOD
. . .with Thy blessing may the house of Thy servant be blessed
O LORD, hast blessed, and it is blessed forever.--It is the blessing of the
LORD that makes rich, and He adds no sorrow to it.
Remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He
Himself said, It is more blessed to give than to receive --When you give a
reception, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will
be blessed, since they do not have the means to repay you; for you will be
repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.
-- Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for
you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave Me
something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger,
and you invited Me in, naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you

"And the Lord direct your hearts
into the love of God, and into the patience of Christ."--
THE BELOVED disciple greets his companions as
sharing "in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ"
It is a noble combination; as though the royalty of Christian character
were in proportion to the share we have in the quiet waiting of our Lord.
He waited patiently from all eternity, until the fullness of the times had
come, and the hour of His Incarnation struck; He waited patiently for
thirty years in Nazareth, whilst preparing for His life-work. When He
returned in triumph to the Father, He sat down at His right hand until His
enemies were made His footstool. Throughout the ages He quietly waits, in
sure expectation of the destined end, when all rule and authority and
power shall be put down. All the anguish of the world lies on His heart;
every question as to the righteousness and equity of God is felt by Him.
He bears all with unfaltering patience, because He sees the end, and knows
that at the last God will be All in All. It is into this love and patience
that we are to be led.
"Into the Love of God." Every time
we dare to affirm that, notwithstanding appearances, God is Love; every
time that we evince that love to others, even though our own heart is
breaking; every time we say No to self and Yes to God, we make further
progress into His Love. Dare to believe in the love of God, even when the
darkness seems to veil it. Dare to believe that it is over all, and
through all, and in all.
"'Into the patience of Christ." Let
us exercise Christ's patience until the sorrows and trials of life have
achieved their destined purpose. There is a sufficient explanation for the
present condition of the world, if we knew it. Therefore, judge nothing
before the time, but be of good cheer, and stablish your hearts, for your
God will come and not keep silence. In the meanwhile let us keep the word
of His patience, and manifest that patience and faith of the saints.
Most Blessed Lord, guide our
wandering feet, we beseech Thee, into the love of God and into Thine own
infinite patience. Forgive us that we have so often been impulsive and
headstrong, that we have murmured against Thy apparent slowness in
answering our prayers. Hush our unquiet hearts with Thine own peace. AMEN.

VALLEY OF VISION
by C H Spurgeon
(Read C H Spurgeon's testimony
- It is miraculous as is EVERY testimony of the new birth)
Always First in Fellowship
"He goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see Him, as He said unto
you" (Mark 16:7).
Where He appointed to meet His disciples, there He would be in due time.
Jesus keeps His trust. If He promises to meet us at the mercy seat, or in
public worship, or in the ordinances, we may depend upon it that He will
be there. We may wickedly stay away from the appointed meeting place, but
He never does. He says, "Where two or three are met together in my name,
there am I"; He says not, "There will I be," but, "I am there already."
Jesus is always first in fellowship: "He goeth before you." His heart is
with His people, His delight is in them, He is never slow to meet them. In
all fellowship He goeth before us. But He reveals Himself to those who
come after Him: "There shall ye see him." Joyful sight! We care not to see
the greatest of mere men, but to see Him is to be filled with joy and
peace. And we shall see Him, for He promises Himself to them. Rest assured
that it will be so, for He does everything according to His word of
promise: "As he said unto you. Catch at those last words, and be assured
that to the end He will do for you "as he said unto you."
MORNING AND EVENING
““Wherefore hast thou afflicted thy servant?”
Our heavenly Father sends us frequent troubles to try our faith.
If our faith be worth anything, it will stand the test. Gilt is
afraid of fire, but gold is not: the paste gem dreads to be
touched by the diamond, but the true jewel fears no test. It is a
poor faith which can only trust God when friends are true, the
body full of health, and the business profitable; but that is true
faith which holds by the Lord’s faithfulness when friends are
gone, when the body is sick, when spirits are depressed, and the
light of our Father’s countenance is hidden. A faith which can
say, in the direst trouble, “Though he slay me, yet will I trust
in him,” is heaven-born faith. The Lord afflicts his servants to
glorify himself, for he is greatly glorified in the graces of his
people, which are his own handiwork. When “tribulation worketh
patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope,” the
Lord is honoured by these growing virtues. We should never know
the music of the harp if the strings were left untouched; nor
enjoy the juice of the grape if it were not trodden in the
winepress; nor discover the sweet perfume of cinnamon if it were
not pressed and beaten; nor feel the warmth of fire if the coals
were not utterly consumed. The wisdom and power of the great
Workman are discovered by the trials through which his vessels of
mercy are permitted to pass. Present afflictions tend also to
heighten future joy. There must be shades in the picture to bring
out the beauty of the lights. Could we be so supremely blessed in
heaven, if we had not known the curse of sin and the sorrow of
earth? Will not peace be sweeter after conflict, and rest more
welcome after toil? Will not the recollection of past sufferings
enhance the bliss of the glorified? There are many other
comfortable answers to the question with which we opened our brief
meditation, let us muse upon it all day long.
““Now on whom dost thou trust?”
Reader, this is an important question. Listen to the Christian’s
answer, and see if it is yours. “On whom dost thou trust?” “I
trust,” says the Christian, “in a triune God. I trust the Father,
believing that he has chosen me from before the foundations of the
world; I trust him to provide for me in providence, to teach me,
to guide me, to correct me if need be, and to bring me home to his
own house where the many mansions are. I trust the Son. Very God
of very God is he—the man Christ Jesus. I trust in him to take
away all my sins by his own sacrifice, and to adorn me with his
perfect righteousness. I trust him to be my Intercessor, to
present my prayers and desires before his Father’s throne, and I
trust him to be my Advocate at the last great day, to plead my
cause, and to justify me. I trust him for what he is, for what he
has done, and for what he has promised yet to do. And I trust the
Holy Spirit—he has begun to save me from my inbred sins; I trust
him to drive them all out; I trust him to curb my temper, to
subdue my will, to enlighten my understanding, to check my
passions, to comfort my despondency, to help my weakness, to
illuminate my darkness; I trust him to dwell in me as my life, to
reign in me as my King, to sanctify me wholly, spirit, soul, and
body, and then to take me up to dwell with the saints in light
Oh, blessed trust! To trust him whose power will never be
exhausted, whose love will never wane, whose kindness will never
change, whose faithfulness will never fail, whose wisdom will
never be nonplussed, and whose perfect goodness can never know a
diminution! Happy art thou, reader, if this trust is thine! So
trusting, thou shalt enjoy sweet peace now, and glory hereafter,
and the foundation of thy trust shall never be removed.
J H JOWETT
NEEDING AND WANTING
Acts 17:22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31.
"AS though He needed anything.” “He may not need us; but does He want us?”
Such is the question I heard Dr. Parker ask as he preached upon these
words. And he took up a handful of flowers which he had upon the pulpit,
and said: “These flowers were gathered for me by little hands in a
Devonshire lane. Did I need them? No. Did I want them?... Your little girl
kissed you before you left for business this morning. Did you need it?...
Did you want it?”
And so Almightiness may not need our weakness, but the loving Father wants
His children. “We are His offspring.” Our Father delights in the love of
His children. The Saviour said to a Samaritan woman, “Give Me to drink.”
And perhaps it is within the scope of our holy privilege to refresh the
heart of our Lord. Perhaps we can give Him to drink of the well of our
affections, and He will see of “the travail of His soul and be satisfied.”
"Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the
man's feet and ankles became strong." Acts 3:7
A lady was asked for her ideal of happiness, and gave this answer:
"My ideal of happiness, is the helping of somebody up." This has
the ring of that word of the Master's, in which he said he came,
"not to be ministered unto—but to minister." At first thought,
most people would look for their ideal of happiness in some
possible good or favor to be received by themselves. But this lady
was right. There is more real happiness in helping somebody
up—than in the receiving of the largest benefits for ourselves.
This glimpse of ideal happiness shows how near the desired
blessing lies all the while, to everyone of us. There is not a day
nor an hour, when we cannot be helping somebody up.

- Blasphemy Laws
A stronghold is defined as a place from which to launch attacks
and then retreat to safety, as to a walled city. In Pakistan,
Islam forbids speaking out against their prophet or harming a copy
of their religious book, the Qur’an; penalties range from
imprisonment to death. Even speaking against these unjust laws can
get you killed. It is the perfect stronghold “law” for use as a
tool to persecute religious minorities and is used with impunity
to protect persecutors after they launch their attacks. Many
people are suffering and dying for their faith under this
stronghold. It is even not uncommon for a Muslim to claim
blasphemy in order to get revenge against someone for some other
reason such as jealousy; so they may falsely accuse some innocent
person they hate of committing an act of blasphemy. The result is
usually mob rule and may even mean death.
Asia Bibi is a Pakistani Catholic woman, and she is the first
woman to be sentenced to death under the Blasphemy Law because she
asked some Muslim tormenters, “Jesus died on the cross for us, but
what has Mohammed done for you?” She is currently imprisoned,
bleeding internally, and so weak she can barely walk.

We are taught in Ephesians chapter six to put on the whole armor
of God. There are only two spiritual weapons, the Word of God and
prayer. Therefore, pray fervently for the suffering people and the
church in Pakistan, for Asia Bibi, and for the Word of God to
pierce the hearts of Pakistani Muslims lost in darkness, deceit,
Proverbs 15:3, NLT
The Lord is watching everywhere, keeping His eye on both the evil
and the good.
To the “good” people who follow the Lord, it is comforting to know
that He is watching. But to those who are evil, the eye of the
Lord is something to be feared. Those who bear false witness and
get innocent people killed based on wicked laws will not get away
with it in eternity. They will be called to account for their
actions. Imagine what it would be like if people understood the
fact that the Lord is watching our every move; there is no place
to hide from Him.
Pray that Muslims in Pakistan will have such a healthy fear of the
Lord that they will turn to Him and practice His ways.—KC

Bryon Paulus, director

revival is failure to pray, to plead, to intercede, to cry out.
Leonard Ravenhill summed it up...
doesn't need to pray. The self-sufficient doesn't want to
self-righteous cannot pray!
Paulus commented: "Those three
principles apply to revival: We are so self-satisfied that
we don't want revival, so
self-sufficient that we think we don't need revival, and so
self-righteous that we can't have revival." (Ouch!)

God addressed Israel
in the following famous passage but the timeless principle is
apropos to believers in America ...
If I shut up the heavens so
that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the
land, or if I send pestilence among My people,
and My people who are called by My name humble themselves
and pray, and seek My face and turn from
their wicked ways,
then I will hear
from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal
their land. (2Chr 7:13, 14)
J. Barton Payne writes that
"This great verse, the best known in all Chronicles, expresses as
does no other in Scripture God’s requirement for national
blessing, whether in Solomon’s land, in Ezra’s, or in our own.
Those who believe must forsake their sins, turn from the life that
is centered in self, and yield to God’s word and will. Then, and
only then, will heaven send revival."
May God grant His children
grace to plead for a Spirit driven, God glorifying, Word centered,
Christ exalting revival of the Body of Christ in America.
First of all, then, I urge that
entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on
behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, in
order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness
and dignity. (1Ti 2:1,2)
Our Heavenly Father
desires to hear His children cry out with "fasting, sackcloth and
ashes" (Da 9:3), reflecting not the external appearance of our
bodies, but more accurately the internal condition of our hearts -
sinful (Da 9:5 - "we" not "they"!), rejecting His Holy Word
(Da 9:6-"we"), shameful (Da 9:8-"us"), contrite, and
broken (Ps 51:17), over our national rejection of God's righteous
and holy Name...
Daniel's prayer (Da 9:3,
4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19) is an
excellent "template" for all saints to emulate as we begin to
intercede with a sense of urgency for
America and especially for God's Name and reputation considering
that the world thinks of us as a "Christian nation" and we once
called ourselves "One Nation Under God"!
Matthew Henry's comments
on Lev 26:40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46 (directed first to Israel but
applicable to any nation that rejects Him)
Among the Israelites, persons
were not always prosperous or afflicted according to their
obedience or disobedience. But national prosperity was the
effect of national obedience, and national judgments
were brought on by national wickedness. Israel was under a
National wickedness will end

Sooner or later, sin will be
the ruin, as well as the reproach, of every people.
Oh that, being humbled for
we might avert the rising storm before it bursts upon us!
(Note: Henry's comments
were published in 1706 and national revival, the
First Great Awakening,
occurred in the 1730's and 1740's! Brethren, there is hope because
there is a "God of hope"! Ro 15:13)
