Old and New Testament.
The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of
trouble, and He knows those who take refuge in Him.
thanks to the LORD of hosts, for the LORD is good, for His
lovingkindness is everlasting --God is our refuge and strength, a very
present help in trouble.--I will say to the LORD, My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust!--Who is like you, a people saved by the LORD, who
is the shield of your help, and the sword of your majesty! --As for God, His
way is blameless; The word of the LORD is tested; He is a shield to all who
take refuge in Him. For who is God, besides the LORD? And who is a rock,
besides our God?
If anyone loves God, he is known by Him.-- The
firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, "The Lord knows those who
are His, and, Let everyone who names the name of the Lord abstain from
wickedness.--The LORD knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the
wicked will perish--you have found favor in My sight, and I have known you

I want you to be free from concern
for you.--The eyes of the LORD move to and fro throughout the earth that He
may strongly support those whose heart is completely His
O taste and see that the LORD is good. How
blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him! The young lions do lack and
suffer hunger; but they who seek the LORD shall not be in want of any good
thing.--For this reason I say to you, do not be anxious for your life, as to
what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor for your body, as to what
you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body than clothing?
Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, neither do they reap,
nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not
worth much more than they?--Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by
prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to
God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard
your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

"Since the beginning of the world men
have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God,
beside Thee, what He hath prepared for him that waiteth for Him."--
THIS CHAPTER is a casket of precious
jewels. Let us look at some of them! What wonder that St. Paul loved that
fourth verse, which he quotes in
Here we read that God works for those who wait for Him; to the Apostle these
words conveyed the thought that those who wait for Him must be those who
love Him, and that God has thought out His prepared plan, so that they have
only to believe in Him and go forward, to find that the path has been
levelled for them to walk in. Those that love God are not afraid of the
mountains that block their way; they know that God will make them flow down,
and will reveal a pathway for their steps. The men of this world, from of
old, have never heard with the ear, nor perceived with the eye, what our God
will do for His own!
Often, as we tread the pathway of
service, rejoicing that He loves us, and working such righteousness as we
can, we meet God coming toward us, as the father meets his children, who
have gone out to welcome him on his return from work. Or, in the hour which
we dread, the hour of that operation, of that dreaded meeting, the hour of
bereavement, as we walk along the path--we shall see a light approaching us,
growing ever brighter. It is the herald-ray of God's approach. "Thou meetest
them that remember Thee in Thy ways!"
It is in the midst of such
loving-kindness that we become most conscious of sin. All our
righteousnesses, which passed muster in the sunlight, in His searching sight
seem as filthy rags, and we realise how evanescent are our resolutions. "We
all do fade as a leaf."
Perhaps we are most ashamed at our
failure in the life of prayer. We do not stir up ourselves to take hold of
Here we must use special caution in
speaking to others of those hidden passages of the soul, in which God our
Father is pleased to meet with us and refresh us, lest we lead to take the
higher path those who have not trod the lower. Each soul knows its own
secret from the Lord, and we must live only as we have received. St.
Bernard's motto was: "My secret to myself."
There is a secret place of rest,
God's saints alone may know;
Thou shalt not find it east nor west,
Though seeking to and fro;
A cell where Jesus is the door,
His love the only key;
Who enter will go out no more,
But there with Jesus be.

VALLEY OF VISION

(Read C H Spurgeon's testimony
- It is miraculous as is EVERY testimony of the new birth)
As the Life
-- So the Fruit
"For if these thing be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall
neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our LORD Jesus
Christ" (2 Peter 1:8 -
If we desire to glorify our LORD by fruitfulness, we must have certain
things within us; for nothing can come out of us which is not first of all
within us. We must begin with faith, which is the groundwork of all the
virtues; and then diligently add to it virtue, knowledge, temperance, and
patience. With these we must have godliness and brotherly love. All these
put together will most assuredly cause us to produce, as our life fruit,
the clusters of usefulness, and we shall not be mere idle knowers but real
doers of the Word. These holy things must not only be in us, but abound,
or we shall be barren. Fruit is the overflow of life, and we must be full
before we can flow over.
We have noticed men of considerable parts and opportunities who have never
succeeded in doing real good in the conversion of souls; and after close
observation we have concluded that they lacked certain graces which are
absolutely essential to fruit bearing. For real usefulness, graces are
better than gifts. As the man is, so is his work. If we would do better,
we must be better. Let the text be a gentle hint to unfruitful professors
and to myself also.
MORNING AND EVENING
"Whom he justified, them he also glorified."
Here is a precious truth for thee, believer. Thou mayest be poor,
or in suffering, or unknown, but for thine encouragement take a
review of thy "calling" and the consequences that flow from it,
and especially that blessed result here spoken of. As surely as
thou art God's child today, so surely shall all thy trials soon be
at an end, and thou shalt be rich to all the intents of bliss.
Wait awhile, and that weary head shall wear the crown of glory,
and that hand of labour shall grasp the palm-branch of victory.
Lament not thy troubles, but rather rejoice that ere long thou
wilt be where "there shall be neither sorrow, nor crying, neither
shall there be any more pain." The chariots of fire are at thy
door, and a moment will suffice to bear thee to the glorified. The
everlasting song is almost on thy lip. The portals of heaven stand
open for thee. Think not that thou canst fail of entering into
rest. If he hath called thee, nothing can divide thee from his
love. Distress cannot sever the bond; the fire of persecution
cannot burn the link; the hammer of hell cannot break the chain.
Thou art secure; that voice which called thee at first, shall call
thee yet again from earth to heaven, from death's dark gloom to
immortality's unuttered splendours. Rest assured, the heart of him
who has justified thee beats with infinite love towards thee. Thou
shalt soon be with the glorified, where thy portion is; thou art
only waiting here to be made meet for the inheritance, and that
done, the wings of angels shall waft thee far away, to the mount
of peace, and joy, and blessedness, where,
"Far from a world of grief and sin,
With God eternally shut in,"
thou shalt rest forever and ever.
"This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope."
Memory is frequently the bond slave of despondency. Dispairing
minds call to remembrance every dark foreboding in the past, and
dilate upon every gloomy feature in the present; thus memory,
clothed in sackcloth, presents to the mind a cup of mingled gall
and wormwood. There is, however, no necessity for this. Wisdom can
readily transform memory into an angel of comfort. That same
recollection which in its left hand brings so many gloomy omens,
may be trained to bear in its right a wealth of hopeful signs. She
need not wear a crown of iron, she may encircle her brow with a
fillet of gold, all spangled with stars. Thus it was in Jeremiah's
experience: in the previous verse memory had brought him to deep
humiliation of soul: "My soul hath them still in remembrance, and
is humbled in me;" and now this same memory restored him to life
and comfort. "This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope."
Like a two-edged sword, his memory first killed his pride with one
edge, and then slew his despair with the other. As a general
principle, if we would exercise our memories more wisely, we
might, in our very darkest distress, strike a match which would
instantaneously kindle the lamp of comfort. There is no need for
God to create a new thing upon the earth in order to restore
believers to joy; if they would prayerfully rake the ashes of the
past, they would find light for the present; and if they would
turn to the book of truth and the throne of grace, their candle
would soon shine as aforetime. Be it ours to remember the
lovingkindness of the Lord, and to rehearse his deeds of grace.
Let us open the volume of recollection which is so richly
illuminated with memorials of mercy, and we shall soon be happy.
Thus memory may be, as Coleridge calls it, "the bosom-spring of
joy," and when the Divine Comforter bends it to his service, it
may be chief among earthly comforters.
J H JOWETT
RECEIVING THE HOLY GHOST
Acts 237, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47.
THE sacred process by which the Holy Spirit is received is the same
throughout all the years.
First there is repentance. And repentance is not a flow of emotion, but a
certain direction of mind. I may repent with dry eyes. It is not a matter
of feeling, but of willing. It is to lay hold of the aimless, drifting
thought, and steer it toward God! It is a change of mind.
Second, there is a definite and avowed choice of my new Goal, my new Lord
and King. The Christian life cannot be a subterfuge. It cannot be lived
incognito. I cannot be the Christ’s and wear the livery of an alien power.
There must be confession, a bold and clarion-like avowal that henceforth I
am a soldier of the Lord.
And the spiritual experiences will be sure, as sure as the law-governed
processes of the material world. There will be “remission of sins.” The
old guilt will fall away from my soul as the chains fell from Peter’s
limbs when the angel touched them. And there will be “the gift of the Holy
Ghost.” A new dynamic is mine! I enter into fellowship with the power of
the ascended Lord.
"Learn this parable from the fig tree." Mark 13:28
The parable of the fig-tree, teaches that we should not shut our
eyes to the foreshadowings of future things. We are taught not to
be anxious about tomorrow. But there is also a duty of looking
ahead—as well as not looking ahead. The good sailor watches the
skies, and he would be criminally foolish—were he to pay no heed
to the foretokens of storm. The prudent farmer watches the
forerunners of winter, and gathers in his fruits, houses his
cattle, puts wood and coal in his bins, when he can do so
easily—and is ready before the snows and the bitter cold come. So
in all our life we should watch the "signs of the times," and
shape our course accordingly.
Young people, as they feel the impulses of life in their souls,
and hear the calls of God sounding in their ears, should be
reminded of the duties and responsibilities of life, toward which
they are moving, and should diligently prepare themselves for
filling well their place. Each period of life brings its own
special work; and there are always forecasts which, if heeded,
will enable us to prepare ourselves for what God is preparing for
us. If we are faithful, one day will prepare us for the next, and
we shall never be found by any event, however sudden, unprepared
to meet it.

the southern Indian state of Karnataka. After having graduated
from the Indian Institute of Technology, she accepted a job in Los
Angeles. Her rise from a programmer to a tech lead in one year

A deeply devout Hindu, Kamini performs poojas (Hindu worship
rituals) early each morning at her home and joins other Kannadigas
in and around Los Angeles to conduct and participate in bhajans
(religious singing). In addition she financially supports
religious activity in her small village in Karnataka.
Unlike the other three states in southern India, Karnataka has a

Leonard Ravenhill summed it up...

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

the ruin, as well as the reproach, of every people.
Oh that, being humbled for

(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)
