DAILY BIBLE PROMISE

** God put His Cross where His Mouth Was - all along! ** Today's Bible Promise is ... "For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward [man] is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding [and] eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen [are] temporal; but the things which are not seen [are] eternal." 2 Cor 4:16-18

MORNING

Mine eyes fail with looking upward.

H AVE mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed. My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long? Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.--My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me. Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me. And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.

Ye have need of patience.

While they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.--Our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.--That blessed hope, . . . the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Tit. 2. 13.


EVENING

His name shall be in their foreheads.

I AM the good shepherd, and know my sheep.--The foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.--Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

After that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance.--Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.--This is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.

DESERTED!

Everybody knows a desert's a place that's barren and void -right? Lifeless? Dead?

O my, when WILL we learn?! Some of the most barren spots in life contain the most vibrant and colorful celebrations of nature's vitality. Ask any photographer who has gone to the desert in time for the Spring flower parade.

Cabin fever. That's what it's all about. Closterphobic anxiety. Winter's just about spent - and Spring's just around the corner - and anxieties have taken hold of our Peace. But what about that Proverb of Paul's that, "Contentment with Godliness is great (spiritual) GAIN?!" - and, "I have learned to be content with..."?? What happens to our quietness when we are stirred?

The sage, Solomon, said it - "For ALL things there is a SEASON!" There's even a time to KILL, he reminds us!

Not ALL urges are carnal - God too can Stir a soul. Ever have God do that inside you? The Seasons of the Soul are God's Movements. Some Quicken and Invigorate - others Lay Waste and Plunder - still others Nurture and Tend - but ALL are God's. We are HIS Workmanship - HIS Garden of Delight - HIS Inheritance!

They tell me there are seeds that can only propagate when burnt with fire - and some that can remain dormant for centuries - only to spring to life again, as if - from the dead! And there are talents, traits, characteristics and winsome things inside each soul that are the 'spitting image' of their Creator - God! Some must be cultivated over very long periods of time - and must have gone through many heartaches, trials and sufferings to germinate, bloom and bear the Fruit of Divinity in us.

Jesus said to WAIT. And to WATCH! and He said that it will only be thus we will INHERIT (Lk21:19). The Seasons come and go. But the Opportunity of ANY lifetime (mortality) is to KNOW GOD! And NOW is always the Appropriate Season for this - under ANY circumstances!

Have you seen yourself only as some dry, arid dessert - parched and barren? Look again, Pilgrim. But THIS time, Look through your Father's Eyes!!

DAILY HYMN (LYRICS & MUSIC)



BE READY WHEN THE BRIDEGROOM COMES

Are you walking now in the light of God?
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.
Are you in the path that the Master trod?
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.

Will you be ready to enter in?
Ready when the Bridegroom comes?
In the morning light, or at noon, or night,
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.

Have you full salvation from every sin?
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.
Trusting in His Word, have you peace within?
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.

Is your heart made clean by the precious blood?
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.
Have you been made white in the cleansing flood?
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.

He will come some day unto every soul;
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.
By His healing power let Him make you whole—
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.

Refrain

CHRISTIAN STUDY RESOURCES

'I wish to make a comment about comments'
(human quotes & opinions):

No matter how well intentioned or Biblically focused, when a creature comments on or about it's Creator, His Word, Will or Ways - we must always remember that the comment will always reflect the 'flavor' or 'tint' or bias (perspective) of that observer. This is simply a fact of necessity - it is not necessarily wrong or in error.

Each of us was Designed as a Reflector (Mirror, or Imager) of God. And we offer each other the wondrous opportunities of Seeing our Maker from such vantages as could have only been displayed by God through His love of diversity. Therefore, we are, in a sense, God's gifts to one another - as we SHARE CHRIST.

Even so, NO commentaries (opinions) ought to supplant or take the place of our own diligent study of God's Written Word-Will, the Bible. These comments (just as the devotionals) are intended as SUPPLIMENT to that life-long devotion. They are meant as a means to encourage one another, and to exhort each other as Commanded.
--Dennis Rideout

"Isn't it amazing how much Light the Bible throws on commentaries?!"
--Robert Thompson
