DAILY BIBLE PROMISE

** God put His Cross where His Mouth Was - all along! ** Today's Bible Promise is ... "Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in [his] goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off." Rom 11:22

MORNING

Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the
plain of Jordan, that it was well
watered every where, before the
LORD destroyed Sodom and
Gomorrah, even as the garden of
the LORD. Then Lot chose him all
the plain of Jordan.

JUST Lot . . . that righteous man.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.--Remember Lot's wife.

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing.--Be not ye . . . partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

GEN. 13. 10, 11. 2 Pe. 2. 7, 8. Ga. 6. 7.--
Lu. 17. 32. 2 Co. 6. 14, 17.--
Ep. 5. 7, 8, 10, 11.


EVENING

If so be the LORD will be with me, then I
shall be able to drive them out, as
the LORD said.

HE hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.--I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.

The work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.

Stand . . . having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.--The LORD is with thee, . . . Go in this thy might.

JOS. 14. 12. He. 13. 5, 6.--Ps. 71. 16.
Is. 32. 17. Ep. 6. 14, 12, 13.--Ju. 6. 12, 14.

DAILY THANKSGIVING

WORK:
Thank You Lord, for work. From the Garden of Eden You made it clear that man must now live by the sweat of his brow - that is, by working. Therefore it is no difficult to see why so many identify themselves BY their occupations.

Even so, Lord, help us never to confuse a career with Your Purpose, Plan and Intentions for us.

And too, I want to thank You for how we can share our work with You - and how You then Transfigure it into something of Eternal Value for us.

You Hallow all You Touch - so, Lord, please Touch our hearts today and Sanctify our mundane work.

CONTEMPLATION!

Sometimes it just helps to take a moment - and stop & think. Ever do that? Just cool yer heels, get away somewhere - by yourself - quiet down, and meditate?

Prayer is not meditation. You can pray even when everything else in your life is out of control - going haywire - when there's chaos swirling around you - when yer uptight. But contemplative meditation takes stillness. You have to get quiet to get still. And getting still has a great deal to do with getting better.

I like to say that we must 'Hush-2-Hear' - that until we do this deliberately, we cannot Hear God's 'still, small voice'. But most folks are afraid of the silence. After all, that's where they might actually encounter God - DIRECTLY!

Jesus Prayed. Lots of folks can't understand that - if He was God. They demand to comprehend or logically understand a thing before they will accept or believe it. This is what the Bible calls, "leaning to our own understanding" - and we are warned about this. But Jesus Was VERY MAN - just as He Was also VERY GOD! And this is but one of MANY such Miraculous Mysteries of God in the Bible - all of which are our's IN-CHRIST.

When Jesus Prayed, he often 'stole away - to a deserted place' (where He could be ALONE WITH GOD, HIS FATHER). And He was Heard because He also had Godly FEAR! Prayer is for Transacting with God - and this is why most will not do it. It is TWO-WAY. God Speaks, we listen - we ASK, and God Hears us!

Contemplation is mental, emotional and spiritual 'chewing' on the 'meat' of mortal circumstances & consequences. It wants quietude! It wants solitude! And for NewCreatures-in-Christ, it wants GOD!

As the Hymn goes, 'How long has it been'? - since you got away - alone - and hushed - and sought to spend some QUALITY TIME with GOD ONLY?

DAILY HYMN (LYRICS & MUSIC)



THE HANDWRITING ON THE WALL

At the feast of Belshazzar and a thousand of his lords,
While they drank from golden vessels, as the Book of Truth records,
In the night, as they reveled in the royal palace hall,
They were seized with consternation—’twas the Hand upon the wall!

Refrain

’Tis the hand of God on the wall!
’Tis the hand of God on the wall!
Shall the record be “Found wanting!”
Or shall it be “Found trusting!”
While that hand is writing on the wall?

See the brave captive, Daniel, as he stood before the throne,
And rebuked the haughty monarch for his mighty deeds of wrong;
As he read out the writing—’twas the doom of one and all,
For the kingdom now was finished—said the Hand upon the wall!

Refrain

See the faith, zeal and courage, that would dare to do the right,
Which the Spirit gave to Daniel—’twas the secret of his might,
In his home in Judea, or a captive in the hall,
He understood the writing of his God upon the wall!

Refrain

So our deeds are recorded—there’s a Hand that’s writing now:
Sinner, give your heart to Jesus, to His royal mandates bow;
For the day is approaching—it must come to one and all,
When the sinners’ condemnation will be written on the wall!

Refrain

CHRISTIAN STUDY RESOURCES

'Why is it there is so much
error in the Church of God?'

From Winslow's, "Learning of Jesus"

The only authoritative Teacher in the Church of
God, the only true Prophet, is the Lord Jesus Christ.

Why is it there is so much darkness and crudeness
in the books we read, and in the sermons we hear?

Why is it that we see so much ignorance and
obscurity in setting forth the truth of God?

Why is it there is so much
error in the Church of God?

It is because men will not sit at the feet of
Jesus and learn of Him. Men would rather learn
of their fellow men than of the 'God man'.

They prefer human writings to the Divine.

They prefer the school of man, to the school of God.

And this is one reason why there is so much
false doctrine, the teaching that causes to err,
both from the pulpit and from the press.

We may be carried away by great learning, brilliant
genius, and apparently profound piety; but if we
place ourselves at the feet of Jesus as a lowly
disciple, and there receive our views of truth, we
shall then understand those profound mysteries
of God's revealed Word, which are hidden from
the worldly wise and prudent, but revealed to
those who become learners of Christ.

"Learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and you shall find rest for your souls." Matthew 9:29

NOTABLE QUOTES (Various Authors)

"Men do not avail themselves of the riches of God's grace. --
They love to nurse their cares, and seem as uneasy without some fret as an old friar would be without his hair girdle. --
They are Commanded to cast their cares on the Lord;
but even when they attempt it, they do not fail to catch them up again, and think it meritorious to walk burdened!"

...H.W.Beecher
