Old and New Testament.
We know that
God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God
wrath of man shall praise Thee. With a remnant of wrath Thou shalt gird
Thyself. --You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good
All things belong to you... the world or life or death
or things present or things to come; all things belong to you and you belong
to Christ; and Christ belongs to God --All things are for your sakes, that the grace which is spreading to more and
more people may cause the giving of thanks to abound to the glory of God.
Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet
our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction
is producing for us an eternal weight of glory
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you
encounter various trials knowing that the testing of your faith produces
endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be
perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
Ro 8.28 Ps 76.10--Ge 50.20
1Co3.21, 22, 23--2Co 4.15, 16, 17 Jas 1.2-4
of the Holy Spirit, be with you all
ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you
forever that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because
it does not behold Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with
you, and will be in you --He shall not speak of
himself. He will not speak on His own initiative...He will disclose to you
what is to come. He shall glorify Me for He shall take of Mine and shall
disclose it to you
The love of God has been poured out within our
hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
The one who joins
himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him. Do you not know that your body
is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and
that you are not your own?
Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were
sealed for the day of redemption --The Spirit also helps our weakness; for
we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes
for us with groanings too deep for words

"Is anything too hard for the
Lord?"--- Ge 18:14.
"He Lord God! behold, Thou hast made
the heaven and the earth by Thy great power and stretched out arm, and
there is nothing too hard for Thee."-- Jer 32:17.
THERE IS no doubt as to the identification of these
three guests that suddenly appeared before the tent-door of Abraham. We
are expressly told that "Jehovah appeared unto him." It was thus that our
Lord anticipated His Incarnation. He came incognito, and "His delights
were with the sons of men" (Pr 8:31). During His earthly life, He
loved the homes of men, lodged with Peter and Zacchaeus, and in the dear
home where Mary loved and Martha served. After His resurrection, He
tarried with two of them in the village inn. So He will come to thy heart
and mine. Though He is the High and lofty One, who inhabits Eternity, yet
He will plead for admission to sup with us and we with Him (Rev 3:20).
But He often comes disguised as a wayfaring man, hungry and athirst. Let
us "run to meet Him," remembering
God is no man's debtor; He always
pays for His lodging, hence His promise to Sarah! She laughed with
incredulity, but is anything too hard for the Lord? That is one of God's
unanswered questions. It has accosted the human conscience all down the
ages. Let us look away from the difficulties imposed by nature, to Him who
holds the oceans in the hollow of His Almighty hand. Then we can stand
with Him on the mountainside, and plead for Sodom; then God Himself will
draw us on to ask for more and yet more, till, when our faith gives out,
He will do something far in advance of all that we asked or thought.
Now unto Him that is able to do
exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the
power that worketh in as. Unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus,
throughout all ages, World without end. AMEN.

Let Trials Bless
"Knowing that tribulation worketh patience" (Romans 5:3).
This is a promise in essence if not in
form. We have need of patience, and here we see the way of getting it. It
is only by enduring that we learn to endure, even as by swimming men learn
to swim. You could not learn that art on dry land, nor learn patience
without trouble. Is it not worth while to suffer tribulation for the sake
of gaining that beautiful equanimity of mind which quietly acquiesces in
all the will of God? Yet our text sets forth a singular fact, which is not
according to nature but is supernatural. Tribulation in and of itself
worketh petulance, unbelief, and rebellion. It is only by the sacred
alchemy of grace that it is made to work in us patience. We do not thresh
the wheat to lay the dust: yet the Rail of tribulation does this upon
God's floor. We do not toss a man about in order to give him rest, and yet
so the LORD dealeth with His children. Truly this is not the manner of man
but greatly redounds to the glory of our all-wise God. Oh, for grace to
let my trials bless me! Why should I wish to stay their gracious
operation? LORD, I ask Thee to remove my affliction, but I beseech Thee
ten times more to remove my impatience. Precious LORD Jesus, with Thy
cross engrave the image of Thy patience on my heart.
MORNING AND EVENING
Morning, Sept 21
“I will rejoice over them to do them good.”
How heart-cheering to the believer is the delight which God has in
his saints! We cannot see any reason in ourselves why the Lord
should take pleasure in us; we cannot take delight in ourselves, for
we often have to groan, being burdened; conscious of our sinfulness,
and deploring our unfaithfulness; and we fear that God’s people
cannot take much delight in us, for they must perceive so much of
our imperfections and our follies, that they may rather lament our
infirmities than admire our graces. But we love to dwell upon this
transcendent truth, this glorious mystery: that as the bridegroom
rejoiceth over the bride, so does the Lord rejoice over us. We do
not read anywhere that God delighteth in the cloud-capped mountains,
or the sparkling stars, but we do read that he delighteth in the
habitable parts of the earth, and that his delights are with the
sons of men. We do not find it written that even angels give his
soul delight; nor doth he say, concerning cherubim and seraphim,
“Thou shalt be called Hephzibah, for the Lord delighteth in thee”;
but he does say all that to poor fallen creatures like ourselves,
debased and depraved by sin, but saved, exalted, and glorified by
his grace. In what strong language he expresses his delight in his
people! Who could have conceived of the eternal One as bursting
forth into a song? Yet it is written, “He will rejoice over thee
with joy, he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with
singing.” As he looked upon the world he had made, he said, “It is
very good”; but when he beheld those who are the purchase of Jesus’
blood, his own chosen ones, it seemed as if the great heart of the
Infinite could restrain itself no longer, but overflowed in divine
exclamations of joy. Should not we utter our grateful response to
such a marvellous declaration of his love, and sing, “I will rejoice
in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation?”
Evening, Sept 21
my soul with sinners.”
Fear made David pray thus, for something
whispered, “Perhaps, after all, thou mayst be
gathered with the wicked.” That fear, although
marred by unbelief, springs, in the main, from
holy anxiety, arising from the recollection of
past sin. Even the pardoned man will enquire,
“What if at the end my sins should be
remembered, and I should be left out of the
catalogue of the saved?” He recollects his
present unfruitfulness—so little grace, so
little love, so little holiness, and looking
forward to the future, he considers his weakness
and the many temptations which beset him, and he
fears that he may fall, and become a prey to the
enemy. A sense of sin and present evil, and his
prevailing corruptions, compel him to pray, in
fear and trembling, “Gather not my soul with
sinners.” Reader, if you have prayed this
prayer, and if your character be rightly
described in the Psalm from which it is taken,
you need not be afraid that you shall be
gathered with sinners. Have you the two virtues
which David had—the outward walking in
integrity, and the inward trusting in the Lord?
Are you resting upon Christ’s sacrifice, and can
you compass the altar of God with humble hope?
If so, rest assured, with the wicked you never
shall be gathered, for that calamity is
impossible. The gathering at the judgment is
like to like. “Gather ye together first the
tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them:
but gather the wheat into my barn.” If, then,
thou art like God’s people, thou shalt be with
God’s people. You cannot be gathered with the
wicked, for you are too dearly bought. Redeemed
by the blood of Christ, you are his forever, and
where he is, there must his people be. You are
loved too much to be cast away with reprobates.
Shall one dear to Christ perish? Impossible!
Hell cannot hold thee! Heaven claims thee! Trust
in thy Surety and fear not!
SEPTEMBER The Twenty-first
LIFE AS BREAD
Mark 8:10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21.
IT is gracious to know that my Lord is “the Bread of Life,” and that I can
feed on Him. It is fearful to know that I, too, am bread, and that others
are feeding on me. Am I the nutriment of vice or the sustenance of virtue?
Am I an evil leaven, like the Pharisees, or a holy leaven like the Lord?
When little children feed on my presence do they grow in strength and
beauty? Or do they become relaxed and demoralized? Who will feed upon me
to-day, and what will be the end of it?
If I would have my life to be as hallowed and hallowing leaven I must
regularly feed upon the Bread of Life. If I am sustained by the Lord, I
too shall be a sustainer of all who aspire after a true and holy life. My
very character will itself become heavenly bread, and men will be
nourished by it even when I am unconscious of the ministry. When they have
spent a brief hour in my company they will go away refreshed.
“Lord, evermore give us this bread!” So feed us with Thyself that we may
share Thy nature. Let “virtue” go forth from us, and let it be as holy
bread to all who are heavy-laden, and ready to faint.
"Year Book" 1895
"Yes, Lord—but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their
masters' table!" Matthew 15:27
When Jesus spoke to the poor Gentile woman in the language of the
time, as if she were but a 'dog'—she was not offended. She was
willing to be as a dog under the Master's table. She was ready to
grant to the Jews—the children's place. The position Jesus had
assigned to her satisfied her. For the dogs under the table did
not starve. The children were first served, and then the pieces of
food which they let fall, belonged to the dogs. Even the crumbs
from that table were enough for her. Thus her humility and also
her faith were shown.
We should come to Christ with a deep sense of our unworthiness,
ready to take the lowest place; and we should realize that even
the crumbs of his grace and love are better than all the feasts of

- Gadaria People
When asked about his people, Rajeesh, a Gadaria replied, “As
everybody knows, our people have good qualities like honesty,
sincerity, dedication, and self-determination. We are a
hardworking people who live all over northern India. Our name
comes from the Hindi word gadar meaning ‘sheep.’ In the past our
ancestors moved from one place to another taking care of their
animals. Writers find us to be a colorful and interesting people.
One man, Dr. Shashi, called us, ‘The Shepherds of India.’ That
writer knew us very well! Most of us are physically strong but
educationally, socially, and politically we are a backward
community. We urgently need to move forward with better education
and more political power.”
Spread across India, there are about 6.5 million Gadaria people.
The majority of them have abandoned their past lives as shepherds;
they now raise goats and cattle and sell the milk. Few of them own
land, and they often have to work for others. Many work as day
laborers in masonry. They are in urgent need of help in the areas
of health, education, clean water, and job training. However,
their most urgent need is to meet the Savior. All of them are
Hindus, and there is almost no outreach to them by the Christian
Pray that God will quickly bring believers to them who will
explain God’s word through storytelling, tapes, and films. Pray
that believers will help the Gadaria to experience the greatness
of God through kind deeds, social action projects, and
Matthew 7:24, ESV
Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be
like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
Christ is the solid rock! All other ways are as vulnerable as a
house built on sand. But who will understand this unless the Holy
Spirit reveals it to them?
Pray that God will reveal to the Gadaria their need for a
solid-rock Savior. May they learn that only Jesus can be their
rock-solid foundation during life’s many turbulent circumstances.

Bryon Paulus, director

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
National wickedness will end
in the ruin of any people,

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)

consider the things which belong to our eternal peace.
