Old and New Testament.
Do not be anxious then, saying, What shall we
eat? or What shall we drink? or With what shall we clothe ourselves?
For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly
Father knows that you need all these things.
FEAR the LORD, you His
saints; For to those who fear Him, there is no want. The young lions do lack
and suffer hunger; But they who seek the LORD shall not be in want of any
good thing. --No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
O LORD of hosts, How blessed is the man who trusts in Thee!
I want you to be
free from concern.-- Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and
supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
Are not two
sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground
apart from your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Therefore do not fear; you are of more value than many sparrows. .-- Why are
you so timid? How is it that you have no faith? --Have faith in God.
Mt 6.31, 32. Ps.

He spread a cloud for a covering,
and fire to
illumine by night.
LIKE as a father has
compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear
Him. For He Himself knows our frame. He is mindful that we are but dust.
The sun shall not smite you by day, nor the moon by night.--There
there will be a shelter to give shade from the heat by day, and refuge and
protection from the storm and the rain.
The LORD is your keeper. The LORD is your shade on your right hand.
The LORD will guard your going out and your coming in From this time forth
and forever. -- The LORD was going before them in a pillar of cloud by day
to lead them on the way, and in a pillar of fire by night to give them
light, that they might travel by day and by night. He did not take away the
pillar of cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, yes and forever.

"Thy Will be done, as in heaven, so on
earth."-- Mat 6:10.
MANY PEOPLE shrink from God's will.
They think that it always means pain, or sorrow, or bereavement. They always
feel melancholy when you speak of doing the Will of God. Alas! how the devil
has libeled God. The will of God is the will of a Father. It is the
Fatherhood of God going out in action. "It is not the will of your Father
that one of these little ones should perish." "This is the will of God, even
If only the will of God were done on
earth, as it is done in heaven, there would be peace between the nations,
and love and happiness in all our homes. Love would cement the union of all
men in a city of blessedness. The fact of the world's present condition is
no argument against the beneficence and blessedness of the will of God. It
is because men will not do the will of God that things are as they are!
In our own life we shall never be
really fight or happy until we have got to the point of saying: "I delight
to do Thy will, O my God." We may not begin there. The first step is to
choose it, then we shall come to accept it lovingly and thankfully; but,
finally, we shall rejoice and delight in it. If you cannot say "Thy Wilt be
done," say: "I am willing to be made willing that Thy Will should be done."
If your will is like a bit of rough and rugged iron, tell God that you are
willing for it to be plunged into the furnace of His love, so that all which
is unyielding and obdurate may pass away before the ardent heat of the
Divine Fire. Depend on it that He will not fail, nor be discouraged with the
long process that may be required; and that He will not be rough or violent.
He will stay His east wind. He will keep His hand on the pulse, that He may
be aware of the least symptom that the ordeal is too strong.
At first there may be a twinge of
pain, as when a dislocated limb is pressed back into its proper position,
but afterwards there is the blessed restoration of healthy vigour. You will
only lose what you would gladly give up if you know as much as God does of
what promotes soul-health. "Whosoever," said our Lord, "will do the Will of
my Father, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother." "In His Will is
Most Gracious God, to know and love
whose will is righteousness, enlighten our souls with the brightness of Thy
presence, that we may both know Thy Will and be enabled to perform it. 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)
the LORD your God will restore you from captivity, and have compassion on
you, and will gather you again from all the peoples where the LORD your
God has scattered you." (Deuteronomy 30:3).
God's own people may sell themselves into captivity by sin. A very bitter
fruit is this, of an exceeding bitter root. What a bondage it is when the
child of God is sold under sin, held in chains by Satan, deprived of his
liberty, robbed of his power in prayer and his delight in the LORD! Let us
watch that we come not into such bondage; but if this has already happened
to us, let us by no means despair. But we cannot be held in slavery
forever. The LORD Jesus has paid too high a price for our redemption to
leave us in the enemy's hand. The way to freedom is, "Return unto the LORD
thy God." Where we first found salvation we shall find it again. At the
foot of Christ's cross, confessing sin, we shall find pardon and
deliverance. Moreover, the LORD will have us obey His voice according to
all that He has commanded us, and we must do this with all our heart and
all our soul, and then our captivity shall end. Often depression of spirit
and great misery of soul are removed as soon as we quit our idols and bow
ourselves in obedience before the living God. We need not be captives. We
may return to Zion's citizenship, and that speedily. LORD, turn our
MORNING AND EVENING
"I will be their God, and they shall be my people."
2 Corinthians 6:16
What a sweet title: "My people!" What a cheering revelation:
"Their God!" How much of meaning is couched in those two words,
"My people!" Here is speciality. The whole world is God's; the
heaven, even the heaven of heavens is the Lord's, and he reigneth
among the children of men; but of those whom he hath chosen, whom
he hath purchased to himself, he saith what he saith not of
others--"My people." In this word there is the idea of
proprietorship. In a special manner the "Lord's portion is his
people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance." All the nations upon
earth are his; the whole world is in his power; yet are his
people, his chosen, more especially his possession; for he has
done more for them than others; he has bought them with his blood;
he has brought them nigh to himself; he has set his great heart
upon them; he has loved them with an everlasting love, a love
which many waters cannot quench, and which the revolutions of time
shall never suffice in the least degree to diminish. Dear friends,
can you, by faith, see yourselves in that number? Can you look up
to heaven and say, "My Lord and my God: mine by that sweet
relationship which entitles me to call thee Father; mine by that
hallowed fellowship which I delight to hold with thee when thou
art pleased to manifest thyself unto me as thou dost not unto the
world?" Canst thou read the Book of Inspiration, and find there
the indentures of thy salvation? Canst thou read thy title writ in
precious blood? Canst thou, by humble faith, lay hold of Jesus'
garments, and say, "My Christ"? If thou canst, then God saith of
thee, and of others like thee, "My people;" for, if God be your
God, and Christ your Christ, the Lord has a special, peculiar
favour to you; you are the object of his choice, accepted in his
"He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso
trusteth in the Lord, happy is he."
Wisdom is man's true strength; and, under its guidance, he best
accomplishes the ends of his being. Wisely handling the matter of
life gives to man the richest enjoyment, and presents the noblest
occupation for his powers; hence by it he finds good in the
fullest sense. Without wisdom, man is as the wild ass's colt,
running hither and thither, wasting strength which might be
profitably employed. Wisdom is the compass by which man is to
steer across the trackless waste of life; without it he is a
derelict vessel, the sport of winds and waves. A man must be
prudent in such a world as this, or he will find no good, but be
betrayed into unnumbered ills. The pilgrim will sorely wound his
feet among the briers of the wood of life if he do not pick his
steps with the utmost caution. He who is in a wilderness infested
with robber bands must handle matters wisely if he would journey
safely. If, trained by the Great Teacher, we follow where he
leads, we shall find good, even while in this dark abode; there
are celestial fruits to be gathered this side of Eden's bowers,
and songs of paradise to be sung amid the groves of earth. But
where shall this wisdom be found? Many have dreamed of it, but
have not possessed it. Where shall we learn it? Let us listen to
the voice of the Lord, for he hath declared the secret; he hath
revealed to the sons of men wherein true wisdom lieth, and we have
it in the text, "Whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he." The
true way to handle a matter wisely is to trust in the Lord. This
is the sure clue to the most intricate labyrinths of life; follow
it and find eternal bliss. He who trusts in the Lord has a diploma
for wisdom granted by inspiration: happy is he now, and happier
shall he be above. Lord, in this sweet eventide walk with me in
the garden, and teach me the wisdom of faith.
J H JOWETT
“Be ye doers of the word and not hearers only.”
James 1:21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27.
WHEN we hear the word, but do not do it, there has been a defect in our
hearing. We may listen to the word for mere entertainment. Or we may
attach a virtue to the mere act of listening to the word. We may assume
that some magical efficacy belongs to the mere reading of the word. And
all this is perverse and delusive. No listening is healthy which is not
mentally referred to obedience. We are to listen with a view to obedience,
with our eyes upon the very road where the obedient feet will travel. That
is to say, we are to listen with purpose, as though we were Ambassadors
receiving instructions from the King concerning some momentous mission.
Yes, we must listen with an eye on the road.
“Doing” makes a new thing of “hearing.” The statute obeyed becomes a song.
The commandment is found to be a beatitude. The decree discloses riches of
grace. The hidden things of God are not discovered until we are treading
the path of obedience. “And it came to pass that as he went he received
his sight.” In the way of obedience the blind man found a new world. God
has wonderful treasures for the dutiful. The faithful discover the “hidden
"This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you—unless you
forgive your brother from your heart." Matthew 18:35
If we have truly received divine forgiveness—we will be forgiving
toward others. As one says, "If you get pardon from God, you will
give it to a brother; if you withhold it from your brother, you
thereby make it manifest that you have not gotten it from God."
So we are brought face to face with a most solemn practical
teaching which we dare not ignore. Have we the forgiving spirit?
Can we sincerely pray, "Forgive us our sins—as we forgive those
who sin against us"? No doubt the lesson is hard, for it is so
against nature; yet we all know by experience that the cherishing
of resentment never brings peace to our hearts. People say,
"Revenge is sweet;" but it is not true. It really makes bitterness
for him who cherishes it. The gratification of a moment, becomes

Global Recordings Network (GRN) 5Fish App
by Allan Starling
Brian’s eyes were wide as he commented, “Everywhere I go in LA I
see people from other countries.” James replied, “Many of them
come from places where missionaries can’t go. This is our chance
to welcome them with the gospel.” “I suppose so,” Brian replied.
“But they have their own religions, don’t visit our churches, and
don’t speak much English, so it’s difficult to reach them.”
“That’s what I thought, before I got 5fish.” Brian reared his head
back and replied, “Huh? We’re talking about people, not fish!”
James smiled and replied, “That’s the name of the free app from
Global Recordings Network. I downloaded it to my phone. I now have
access to the gospel message in 5,500 languages. Say I’m at the
store and see someone from another country. I strike up a
conversation and ask him where he’s from. I welcome him to Los
Angeles and ask about his language. With a few clicks I play a
short message to him in his heart language. If he likes it I offer
to transfer the message to his phone.”
Brian asked, “What responses do you get?” “It varies. Some are a
bit suspicious at first. But I’ve seen how their eyes light up
when they hear their own language. The heart language is the key.”

Pray that many believers in Los Angeles will use the app to reach
out to those who need to hear the good news in their own language.
Hebrews 4:12-13, NIV
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any
double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and
spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of
the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight.
Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to
whom we must give account.

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

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)
