** God put His Cross where His Mouth Was - all along! ** Today's Bible Promise is ... "My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me." Ps 63:8



Lord, thank you for all those selfless heroes who have dedicated their careers to helping others who are in medical distress. So many times, these folks go quietly into the oblivion of selfless obscurity - thankless.

Yet their work is the kindness which may be closer to Your heart than any other. When we are crippled or hobbled by pain or fear - or both - and illness takes charge of our body, we are reminded just how fragile and helpless we all can be (will be), at times. And when we are in need of help from others we are humbled by the experience. In these times, the kindness and thoughtful help of another soul reminds us of You, Lord - and Your Selfless Love for all who are needy.

Lord, strengthen, guide and help these helpers of the lame. Give them the courage, stamina and strength to endure their labors of love.

In England, someone has constructed this enormous statue to 'The Angel Of The North'. And the sheer scale of its dimensions dwarfs it's human onlookers.

Are Angels all such giants? Welp, whenever giants are mentioned in the Bible, they are associated with Demonic (fallen angel) visits. There is a great deal of interest in Angels and Demons in these last daZe - go figure!

But we must remember that all Angels (Demons too) are mere creatures - just like we are creatures. Nor is ANY creature EVER endowed with power or strength - except BY GOD! God has ALLOWED the fallen Angels to 'live' (exist) - for a Season. This includes the Prince of Fools, the Devil! Why? Ask God! But if you do - be prepared to HUSH-2-HEAR Him, or you will surely be hardened in your heart by such a demonstration of spiteful unbelief!

It would do all well, who have not yet obeyed The Gospel of Jesus Christ (have not truly been Spiritually Circumcised in New Birth), to be very afraid of such things - in these last daZe! One thing is for sure - they ARE coming! Woe unto that soul which has not made Peace with God in-Christ - BEFORE they Arrive!



Quiet, Lord, my froward heart,
Make me teachable and mild,
Upright, simple, free from art,
Make me as a weanèd child:
From distrust and envy free,
Pleased with all that pleases Thee.

What Thou shalt today provide,
Let me as a child receive;
What tomorrow may betide,
Calmly to Thy wisdom leave:
’Tis enough that Thou wilt care,
Why should I the burden bear?

As a little child relies
On a care beyond his own;
Knows he’s neither strong nor wise,
Fears to stir a step alone:
Let me thus with Thee abide,
As my Father, Guard, and Guide.

Thus preserved from Satan’s wiles,
Safe from dangers, free from fears;
May I live upon Thy smiles,
Till the promised hour appears;
When the sons of God shall prove
All their Father’s boundless love.

'Fly to the Word of God!'

from "The Preciousness of God's Word", by Octavius Winslow

As a system of 'consolation' Christianity has no equal. No other religion in the wide world touches the hidden springs of the soul, or reaches the lowest depths of human sorrow, but the religion of Christ.

When your hearts have been overwhelmed, when adversity has wrapped you within its gloomy pall, when the broken billows of grief have swollen and surged around your soul, how have you fled to the Scriptures of truth for succor and support, for guidance and comfort! Nor have you repaired to them in vain. "The God of all comfort" is He who speaks in this Word, and there is no word of comfort like that which He speaks.

The adaptation of His truth to the varied, the peculiar and personal trials and sorrows of His Church, is one of the strongest proofs of its divinity. Take to the Word of God whatever sorrow you may, go with whatever mental beclouding, with whatever spirit sadness, with whatever heart grief; whatever be its character, its complexion, its depth unsurpassed in the history of human sorrow, there is consolation and support in the Word of God for your mind.

God will not leave you in trouble, but will sustain you in it, will bring you out of, and sanctify you by it, to the endless glory and praise of His great and precious name!

Christian mourner, let me once more direct your eye too dimmed perhaps by tears to behold this divine source of true, unfailing comfort. God's Word is the book of the afflicted. Written to unfold the wondrous history of the "Man of Sorrows," it would seem to have been equally written for you, O child of grief! God speaks to your sad and sorrowing heart from every page of this sacred volume, with words of comfort, loving, gentle, and persuasive as a mother's. "As one whom his mother comforts, so will I comfort you."

The Bible is the opening of the heart of God. It is God's heart unveiled, each throb inviting the mourner, the poor in spirit, the widow, the fatherless, the bereaved, the persecuted, the sufferer, yes, every child of affliction and grief to the asylum and sympathy, the protection and soothing of His heart. Oh, thank God for the comfort and consolation of the Scripture! Open it with what sorrow and burden and perplexity you may, be it the guilt of sin, the pressure of trial, or the corrodings of sorrow, it speaks to the heart such words of comfort as God only could speak.

Have you ever borne your grief to God's Word, especially to the experimental Psalms of David, and not felt that it was written for that particular sorrow? You have found your grief more accurately portrayed, your state of mind more truly described, and your case more exactly and fully met, probably in a single history, chapter, or verse, than in all the human treatises that the pen of man ever wrote.

Fly to the Word of God, then, in every sorrow! You will know more of the mind and heart of God than you, perhaps, ever learned in all the schools before. Draw, then, O child of sorrow, your consolation from God's Word. Oh, clasp this precious Word of comfort to your sorrowful heart, and exclaim, "It is mine! The Jesus of whom it speaks is mine, the salvation it reveals is mine, the promises it contains are mine, the heaven it unveils is mine, and all the consolation, comfort, and sympathy which wells up from these hidden springs, is MINE."

"It is His Will that I should cast my cares on Him each day; He also tells me not to cast my confidence away --

But oh!, how foolishly I act, when taken unawares; I cast away my confidence, and carry all my cares!"

(worry is sin against trust, which is mutiny against Love)


God doesn't just want to do it *FOR* us, but *IN* us!

NOTABLE QUOTES (Various Authors)


"When Christ says "Go!", He does not mean "away", but "Follow!". "Follow" means "obey". Don't go for God until you are "approved by God, in rightly dividing His Word of Truth".

We are to "Disciple" other's - but how can we, until we have learned Christ's discipline? Even Jesus had to learn discipline - it is Written, "He learned obedience thru suffering!" --- have we??"
