DAILY BIBLE PROMISE

** God put His Cross where His Mouth Was - all along! ** Today's Bible Promise is ... "Blessed [are] they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." Mt 5:10

'DAILY LIGHT ON THE DAILY PATH' (circa. 1875)

MORNING

Men ought always to pray, and not to faint.

Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him? And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.--Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. . . . As a prince hast thou power with God and with men.--Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving.

Jesus went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.



LUKE 18. 1. Lu. 11. 5-8.--Ep. 6. 18.
Ge. 32. 26, 28.--Col. 4. 2. Lu. 6. 12.


EVENING

Forgive all my sins.

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.--I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.

The Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins.--In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.--Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour.--Having forgiven you all trespasses; blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.

Bless the LORD, O my soul, . . . who forgiveth all thine iniquities.

"CHRIST, THE LORD"

Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord

The heavens are opened now and the message of the angel of the Lord is announced --- "good tidings of great joy!" The message was to the humble shepherds and it will mean much to us if we can, in humility of heart, take our place with the shepherds, acknowledge our unworthiness and appropriate the truth to our own souls --- "Unto you is born a Saviour, Christ the Lord!" (the Anointed One --- The Ruler). We are no longer to rule our selves. He is to Rule us!

Lord, with joy we submit our wills, and surrender all to Thee. Help us to magnify Thee today. Amen.

DAILY HYMN (LYRICS & MUSIC)



THE WANDERER

I had wandered off from Heaven,
On the mountains cold and gray,
When I heard my Savior calling,
To His lost sheep far away;
How I listened as the tear drops
Coursed adown like falling rain,
While His tender words of promise,
Made my spirit glad again.

Refrain

“Come, oh, come to Me,” said Jesus,
Come and I will give you rest,
I will take away the burden
From the heavy laden breast.
No matter who the wand’rer,
Nor how far he’s gone astray,
Behold, whosoever cometh,
I will comfort him today.

I was working in the temple
With the Savior by my side,
Where the multitude assembled,
In its misery and pride;
Glancing upward from my labor
I just caught His distant smile,
“You have placed your work between us,
Come and talk with Me awhile.”

Refrain

Many early friends had left me,
While the vacant room and chair,
Were reminders of the prices
I had paid down to be there;
I was brooding o’er my losses
When the Savior spoke to me,
“You have let your sorrows settle,
Like a cloud ’tween Me and thee.”

Refrain

Then I saw at once that Jesus
Could be better far than all;
He could lighten up the pathway,
Could surround me like a wall;
He could take the place of loved ones,
Wipe the falling tears away,
Turn my sorrows into laughter,
Change the night-tide into day.

Refrain

So I heard the Savior calling,
“Come thou weary one away,”
And my answer quickly followed,
“Lord, I’m coming home today”;
Now His loving arms are round me,
And my head is on His breast,
While I catch His faintest whisper,
And my spirit is at rest.

Refrain

'SOUL FOOD' - an audio-book by G.D. Watson - Ch. 30 of 32

Chapter 30 - "THE FORMS OF DIVINE LIFE"
-- G.D. Watson lived in England, in the early part of the 1900's --




Just as all the character and life of the Godhead was formed and expressed in the person and life of our blessed Jesus, so, in a similar way, it is God's design that the fullness of the Christ-life shall be reformed and expressed in us by the power of the indwelling and infilling of the Holy Spirit. That infinite life of spotless, lowly, gentle love is seeking vessels in which to shape and spread itself abroad in the world, and the Holy Spirit is the person who imparts and unfolds this Divine life in us.

In order that this life may perfectly fill us, every obstruction to its inflow in heart and mind and habit must be purged away; and then the spirit, in taking possession of us, will naturally take the form of our peculiar individuality and innocent characteristics. The Christ-life is a unit, but the living forms in which it may be expressed are as manifold as are the living vessels that will receive it. As the great ocean pouring itself into the various inlets along the shore will take the form and depth and other peculiarities of those inlets, so the infinite sea of Divine life, in being poured into His creatures, will assume the various forms of those creatures, and blend itself with all their God-given faculties and temperaments.

The blood in our heart takes the shape of the heart, but as it is thrown out through all the body, it shapes itself to the arteries and veins down to the least molecule of each organ. Thus Christ is the infinite heart of life, and by the Holy Ghost He pulsates that life out into all the members of His mystical body - into youth and old age, male and female, nervous and phlegmatic temperaments - shaping itself according to each one's make and endowment. In like manner this Holy Ghost life can flow through all the natural affections and adapt itself to their form and manifestation. It is God's revealed will that all the natural affections - connubial, parental, filial, fraternal - shall exist in spotless purity, and be the appropriate channels for showing forth the very life of Jesus that circulated in heaven. Hence the need of the uttermost purification of every part of our being, that nothing may hinder the infinite person of Christ from filling our spirit, mind, and body. Though the life takes our individual human form, yet the life is Divine, and its power in and through us is superhuman.

"We have this treasure in earthen vessels," and the reason why this precious life is put into our earthen vessels is because it may more clearly be seen "that the excellency is of God," and not of us. Only think of the great honor given to us, that we can give individual form and expression to the very life of the Lamb of God. The air I breathe takes the fashion of my lungs and the tones of my voice which no other in the human race will duplicate. So our loving Lord wants each of us to breathe in His life and Spirit, and give some form or voice or expression for Him which none but us can give. Hence, instead of fretting over our peculiar make-up, or criticising that of others, let us remember that God will not undo the mechanism or form of our individualism, but His plan is to purge away all sin and self, and have each of our diverse individualities utterly filled with His life and Spirit. Not to chafe or wrestle with my formation, but to perfectly and always yield it to the possession of the Holy Spirit, is the way to victory and blessing.

"Begin the day with God! He is thy Sun and Day!
His is the radiance of thy dawn; to Him address thy lay. -

Sing a new song at morn! Join the glad woods and hills;
join the fresh winds and seas and plains, join the bright flowers and rills.

so shall thy business prosper well, and all thy day be Love!"

'NOW I LAY ME DOWN ... '

'And if I should die before I wake .... '

Lord thank You for disciplining me - my thoughts, motives, desires and expectations.

I was so out of control when I first met You that I did not believe You could do it - but You have! And in all of this, You have taught me to Love You - and to want Your Will for me instead of my own.

Thank You.
