THE ALL-SUFFICIENCY OF CHRIST
"The glorious Lord will be unto us a
place of broad rivers and streams The Lord is our King; He will save us."--
THE R.V. translates our text "Jehovah
will be with us in Majesty."
The reference can only be to our
Saviour, who is the Divine Vice-regent of the world. Through Him it was
created, by Him it has been redeemed, in Him its government is vested. He is
King of kings, and Lord of lords. His are the Glories of the Cross, of
Victory over Death and Hell, of the Ascension, of Pentecost, of the
Millennial Reign, of the Judgment Seat!
And this Glorious and Transcendent
Saviour is willing and eager to be the complement of our deficiencies and
needs. We look around, and some of us, as we compare our lot with others,
lament, even if we do not audibly complain, at our disadvantages. Others,
whom we have known from childhood, seem to have all that heart could wish--a
happy married life, a spacious and beautiful home, hosts of friends, buoyant
health, opportunities of travel and enjoyment that are denied to us. We have
been plagued all the day long, and chastened every morning. We have spent a
shut-in, cloistered life. The bare necessaries of life have been our only
portion, and a sense of anxiety as to our future has haunted our dreams.
But we are not alone in this
experience. When every one went to his own home, our Lord Jesus spent the
night on the Mount of Olives. The birds had their nests, and the foxes their
holes, but the Son of Man had no where to lay His head, but, like Jacob, was
wont to make a stone His pillow. You are not singular, therefore, if your
life is barren and lonely, for many of God's noblest saints have lived from
hand to mouth, wandering in deserts and mountains, in dens and caves of the
earth, being destitute, afflicted, and tormented.
Remember that such experiences are
designed to bring into prominence what the glorious Lord is prepared to be
and do. In mathematics we speak of the complement of a curve--that which is
needed to make a curve into a complete circle. So Jesus is willing to
complete our lives, however imperfect and ineffective they may be. He is
able to compensate for all deficiencies, and to become in your experience "a
place of broad rivers and streams." A river to intercept dreaded evil, and a
stream to refresh and fertilise the drooping thirsty heart.
Be to us, O Glorious Lord, a place of
broad rivers and streams; our Judge, our Lawgiver, our King, our Saviour.
Make the wilderness of our life a pool, and the dry land water springs.

VALLEY OF VISION
by C H Spurgeon
(Read C H Spurgeon's testimony
- It is miraculous as is EVERY testimony of the new birth)
Are the Children In?
"I will pour My Spirit upon thy seed, and My blessing upon thine
offspring" (Isaiah 44:3).
Our dear children have not the Spirit of God by nature, as we plainly see.
We see much in them which makes us fear as to their future, and this
drives us to agonizing prayer. When a son becomes specially perverse, we
cry with Abraham, "Oh, that Ishmael might live before thee!" We would
sooner see our daughters Hannahs than empresses. This verse should greatly
encourage us. It follows upon the words, "Fear not, O Jacob, my servant,"
and it may well banish our fears. The LORD will give His Spirit; will give
it plentifully, pouring it out; will give it effectually, so that it shall
be a real and eternal blessing. Under this divine outpouring our children
shall come forward, and "one shall say, I am the LORD's; and another shall
call himself by the name of Jacob." This is one of those promises
concerning which the LORD will be inquired of. Should we not, at set
times, in a distinct manner, pray for our offspring? We cannot give them
new hearts, but the Holy Spirit can; and He is easily to be entreated of.
The great Father takes pleasure in the prayers of fathers and mothers.
Have we any dear ones outside of the ark? Let us not rest till they are
shut in with us by the LORD's own hand.
MORNING AND EVENING
"And they took knowledge of them, that they had been with
A Christian should be a striking likeness of Jesus Christ. You
have read lives of Christ, beautifully and eloquently written, but
the best life of Christ is his living biography, written out in
the words and actions of his people. If we were what we profess to
be, and what we should be, we should be pictures of Christ; yea,
such striking likenesses of him, that the world would not have to
hold us up by the hour together, and say, "Well, it seems somewhat
of a likeness;" but they would, when they once beheld us, exclaim,
"He has been with Jesus; he has been taught of him; he is like
him; he has caught the very idea of the holy Man of Nazareth, and
he works it out in his life and every-day actions." A Christian
should be like Christ in his boldness. Never blush to own your
religion; your profession will never disgrace you: take care you
never disgrace that. Be like Jesus, very valiant for your God.
Imitate him in your loving spirit; think kindly, speak kindly, and
do kindly, that men may say of you, "He has been with Jesus."
Imitate Jesus in his holiness. Was he zealous for his Master? So
be you; ever go about doing good. Let not time be wasted: it is
too precious. Was he self-denying, never looking to his own
interest? Be the same. Was he devout? Be you fervent in your
prayers. Had he deference to his Father's will? So submit
yourselves to him. Was he patient? So learn to endure. And best of
all, as the highest portraiture of Jesus, try to forgive your
enemies, as he did; and let those sublime words of your Master,
"Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do," always
ring in your ears. Forgive, as you hope to be forgiven. Heap coals
of fire on the head of your foe by your kindness to him. Good for
evil, recollect, is godlike. Be godlike, then; and in all ways and
by all means, so live that all may say of you, "He has been with
"Thou hast left thy first love."
Ever to be remembered is that best and brightest of hours, when
first we saw the Lord, lost our burden, received the roll of
promise, rejoiced in full salvation, and went on our way in peace.
It was spring time in the soul; the winter was past; the
mutterings of Sinai's thunders were hushed; the flashings of its
lightnings were no more perceived; God was beheld as reconciled;
the law threatened no vengeance, justice demanded no punishment.
Then the flowers appeared in our heart; hope, love, peace, and
patience sprung from the sod; the hyacinth of repentance, the
snowdrop of pure holiness, the crocus of golden faith, the
daffodil of early love, all decked the garden of the soul. The
time of the singing of birds was come, and we rejoiced with
thanksgiving; we magnified the holy name of our forgiving God, and
our resolve was, "Lord, I am thine, wholly thine; all I am, and
all I have, I would devote to thee. Thou hast bought me with thy
blood--let me spend myself and be spent in thy service. In life
and in death let me be consecrated to thee." How have we kept this
resolve? Our espousal love burned with a holy flame of
devoutedness to Jesus--is it the same now? Might not Jesus well
say to us, "I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left
thy first love"? Alas! it is but little we have done for our
Master's glory. Our winter has lasted all too long. We are as cold
as ice when we should feel a summer's glow and bloom with sacred
flowers. We give to God pence when he deserveth pounds, nay,
deserveth our heart's blood to be coined in the service of his
church and of his truth. But shall we continue thus? O Lord, after
thou hast so richly blessed us, shall we be ungrateful and become
indifferent to thy good cause and work? O quicken us that we may
return to our first love, and do our first works! Send us a genial
spring, O Sun of Righteousness.

THE HILL COUNTRY OF THE SOUL
Psalm 121:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
THERE should be a hill country in every life, some great up-towering peaks
which dominate the common plain. There should be an upland district, where
springs are born, and where rivers of inspiration have their birth. “I
will lift up mine eyes unto the hills.”
The soul that knows no hills is sure to be oppressed with the monotony of
the road. The inspiration to do little things comes from the presence of
big things. It is amazing what dull trifles we can get through when a
radiant love is near. A noble companionship glorifies the dingiest road.
And what if that Companion be God? Then, surely, “the common round and
daily task” have a light thrown upon them from “the beauty of His
The “heavenlies” are our salvation and our defence. “His righteousness is
like the great mountains.” (Ps 36:6) “The mountains bring forth peace unto
"Every skilled woman spun with her hands and brought what she had
spun—blue, purple or scarlet yarn or fine linen." Exodus 35:25
Many young ladies make beautiful things—but do not bring them to
Christ. They keep them for their own adornment. But these women
brought their fine handiwork to the Lord. They spun beautiful
threads to be woven into the curtains and embroideries of the
tabernacle. Christian girls and women may help in many ways in
preparing dwelling-places for God. They can make a place for him
in their own heart. They can put touches of beauty into the lives
of others. It needs not great things—but only service of truth
filled with love, to please God. The threads may be coarse—but in
God's eye they will be beautiful—if love spins them.

- Northern Hausa People
Northern Nigeria has been in the throes of warfare for a very long
time, and there does not seem to be an end in sight. Trapped in
this reality are nearly 400,000 Northern Hausa people who are
primarily trying to make a living as agricultural workers.
It is believed that the Hausa have lived in this region since
about 200 BC. It was at this general time that they came into a
position of prominence. They remain one of the most historically
grounded and largest civilizations in West Africa. They are quite
passionate about their music and art. Hausa children are often
seen in public markets doing performances. Work songs, story
telling, musical dances are practiced by adults throughout their

the 14th century. The Northern Hausa have gone on to convert many
other peoples through their trade networks.

The LORD said, “I have surely seen the affliction of my people who
are in Egypt, and have given heed to their cry because of their
taskmasters, for I am aware of their sufferings. So I have come
down to deliver them from the power of the Egyptians, and to bring
them up from that land to a good and spacious land, to a land
flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanite and the
Hittite and the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the
Jebusite. Now, behold, the cry of the sons of Israel has come to
me; furthermore, I have seen the oppression with which the
Egyptians are oppressing them.

Bryon Paulus, director

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

(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)
