Jan-Feb. 2015

FEBRUARY 7, 2015—BEFORE THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH—Ephesians 1; 4

“According as he hath chosen us in Him before the foundations of the world”. How can we possibly understand anything before the ‘foundations of the earth’? How can we explain a time when there was no mater, no motion, no space or even time… by using a word that we don’t fully understand ourselves? And how is it possible to really grasp the fact that we, man elect, were chosen, “according to the foreknowledge of God” (1 […]

FEBRUARY 5, 2015—WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS

Not far from Port Hope, Ontario, stands a monument with this inscription; “Four miles north, in Pengally’s Cemetery, lies the philanthropist and author of this great masterpiece, written at Port Hope, 1857.” Above the inscription are the words of the beloved hymn, “What a friend We Have in Jesus.” Joseph Scriven, its author, was a man who had experienced the friendship of Jesus through a life filled with personal tragedy.

When Scriven was a young man in Ireland, his fiancee […]

FEBRUARY 3, 2015—THE SECRET TO GUIDANCE—Psalms 46; 10

For many years I thought that after I prayed it was my responsibility to do whatever I could to make my request happen. But as it turns out that was the biggest mistake of my prayer life for most often I got ahead of the Lord and complicated the answer. Although the Lord can answer our question for guidance in one miracle moment, guidance from Him is usually a process that takes time. First we acquire a […]

FEBRUARY 2, 2015—STRETCH FORTH THY HAND—Luke 6; 10

All four of the gospels record the same incident and verify the exact words of Jesus when He healed the man with the withered hand, “stretch forth thy hand”. After we have prayed, and waited for the Lord to open the door of opportunity, there will invariably be instruction, a part for us to accomplish. In this case the Lord did not just say ‘your healed, look at your hand’, He said “stretch forth thy hand”. […]

JANUARY 31, 2015—SPEAK, FOR THY SERVANT HEARETH—1 Samuel 3; 9

When Samuel was a young boy the Lord called his name. At first he was confused thinking that Eli had called him but finally realizing it was the Lord that was calling, he responded, “Speak for thy servant heareth”. Many times in life we question whether it is the Lord who has spoken, but the fact is that nothing comes to us except the Lord allow it or cause it. With that in mind, the Lord is continually […]

JANUARY 27, 2015—I AM THE RESURRECTION—John 11; 25

When Lazarus died as recorded in chapter 11 of John, Martha came to the Lord and said, “Lord, if you had been here my brother would not have died.” Jesus could have responded by saying, “Don’t worry I can raise him from the dead” but instead He said “I am the resurrection” and there is a huge difference. From that time until today we all think in terms of our Lord being able to raise a person […]

JANUARY 26, 2015—LEANING ON GOD

There are imperatives in Scripture such as, to ‘pray without ceasing’ and to live in the ‘presence of God’. But it is not necessary to be always on our knees or in the closet listening to hear from God or to have communion with Him. There is a fellowship more sweet than words. The little child can sit all day long beside its busy mother and be perfectly content although few words are spoken. Both are […]

JANUARY 24, 2015—GOD CAN ERASE THE PAST—Joel 2: 25

There is a most remarkable thing that happens in the TRUE believers life. The Lord redeems the time lost in darkness and sin, actually uses those things of the past to enlighten His children of wonderful spiritual truths and, over time, restores innocence by causing the the memory of those offenses to fade. This is truly an amazing thing, but it is not for those who are lukewarm or nominal in their Christian walk. It is not […]

JANUARY 23, 2015— God will reveal His plans—Exodus 14; 13

“God’s impressions within and His Word without are always corroborated by His providence around, and we should quietly wait until all three of these focus onto one point. Sometimes it looks as though we must act. Everyone says we should do something and, indeed, things seem to have reached so desperate a pitch that we must. Behind are the Egyptians, right and left are inaccessible precipices, up ahead is the sea. It is not easy during such times to […]

JANUARY 22,2015—I’LL FLY AWAY

The son of tenant farmers in the Indian Territory that is now Oklahoma, Albert Brumley quit school after tenth grade and didn’t have much of a future to look forward to–except to pick cotton for the rest of his life. Then, when he was sixteen years old, he attended a singing school in his farm community of Rock Island and discovered he could sing better than most adults and he could harmonize too.

So at nineteen he went to a […]
