** God put His Cross where His Mouth Was - all along! ** Today's Bible Promise is ... "The LORD openeth [the eyes of] the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:" Ps 146:8



Lord, Today it snowed a bit, and I am reminded of Your seasons. I like the snow. Oh I know some don't - like the snow, I mean - but I do.

Like The Living Manna from Heaven, it comes DOWN to us Clean, Pure and God-Given. It's nice to be reminded that all pollution, corruption and uncleanliness is mortal - of man - and not of God - and that all of this is temporary - and that one day we will be WITH You and LIKE You.

Thank you Lord for Your reminders!

LOVE'S me, love's me not .... :(

I was listening to a wonderful modern song entitled, 'Nothin's Gonna Change My Love For You!' - nice tune, but that sentiment struck me. Although the Lord has Shown and Taught me that the modern-day notion of so-called, 'unconditional love' is a lie (even Agape Love of God has MANY Conditions - placed there by GOD!) - even so, this thought strikes home.

We can DEPEND on Your Love, Lord - as surely as we can Trust Your Living WORD-Will - the Bible. Why? Because we can Trust YOU! You have Proven Your Love for us in Christ's Death and Resurrection - and that will - no, that CAN - never change. That Is "FINISHED!", even as You Said it Was - FOREVER! Your Mercy Endures Forever - that is - Your Love and Forgiveness and Grace towards the Repentant Penitent - that Contrite, Humble and sincerely Honest soul - is WITHOUT END.

We have no need to have You Prove Your Love for us - over & over again. Nor do we wish to 'put Christ to shame' (Heb6:6) by deliberately provoking and vexing The Spirit by Which we are being Saved. Indeed, Learning to Trust You like this is all part & parcel of our Growth and Development in-Christ (Spiritual Maturity). And it is by this Means Your True Love (in us) is casting out all doubt, fear and/or confusions (associated with the flesh and this world).

Lord, thank you for Your faithfulness in Loving us so. Grant us the Privilege in-Christ to Reflect & Echo this in You with a Loyalty and Fidelity to Jesus in our daily life that will Honor You! We KNOW this is possible because we have SEEN this in other of Your Saints. We COVET this Spiritual Quality, as we too would reciprocate WITH Your Love, in-Christ!



Eternal life is in God’s Word
For dead and dying men;
By it alone we know the Lord,
Unseen by mortal ken.


O blessèd Word, O gracious Word,
We’ll love thee more and more;
Be thou our Life, our Strength, our Sword,
’Till earthly strife is o’er.

God’s strength is in His holy Word;
We need it ev’ry day;
In all our conflicts this the sword
Our spirit foes to slay.


By this same Word we know our task,
And how it should be done;
How now to live, and how at last
Our crown is to be won.

'More scarce and precious than a bar of gold!'

(adapted from Octavius Winslow's, "The Redeemer,
the Revelation of the Father's Glory" October, 1844)

"The time is surely coming," says the Sovereign Lord,
"when I will send a famine on the land; not a famine
of bread or water but of hearing the words of the Lord."
Amos 8:11

Already has this famine of the true word of God commenced!

How few, forming their ministry upon the apostolic
model, can affirm with Paul, "My speech and my
preaching are not with enticing words of man's wisdom,
but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power!"

How few, disdaining artificial embellishment, and
scorning the applause of men won by a vain show
of intellect and eloquence, preach that simple truth
of which Jesus is the Author, the Substance, the
Glory, the Power, and the End; purely, boldly,
faithfully, affectionately, uncompromisingly!

How few who honestly and heartily desire to lift up
their Lord and Master; themselves lost behind the
glory of His person and the splendors of His cross!

How sadly, how painfully, is the Lord Jesus Christ
kept in the background! How is His glory obscured,
His beauty veiled, His honor withheld!

"The time will come, when a faithful minister
of the Gospel will be more scarce and precious
than a bar of gold!"
--John Owen

Pr 10:19
"In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin (When words are many, transgression is not lacking):
but he that refraineth his lips is wise (prudent)."



"Go bury thy sorrow, the world hath its share; Go bury it deeply, go hide it with care;

"Go think of it calmly, when curtained by the night; Go tell it to Jesus, and all will be made right!"

"Hearts growing a-weary with heavier woe, now droop 'mid the darkness, go comfort them - GO!;

"Go bury thy sorrows, let others be blest; Go give them the sunshine, tell Jesus the rest!"
