Standing on the Promises

Posted by Michael La Framboise on Monday, February 25, 2013,
    What an exciting prayer meeting we had here on Wednesday night! I’m, so glad I was a part of it, especially as one our dear saints spoke of a dream he had concerning our church; and I believe he spoke a prophecy over our church. The Scripture promised that God would pour out His Spirit in such a way that aged saints would dream dreams of His power and purposes, and certainly the Apostles admonish believers not to despise prophecies, and to take seriously the Spirit’s work.
 
    After s...

Calvary Love

Posted by Amy Carmichael on Thursday, February 21, 2013,
If I belittle those whom I am called to serve, talk of their weak points in contrast perhaps with what I think of as my strong points; if I adopt a superior attitude, forgetting "Who made thee to differ? And what hast thou that thou hast not received?" then I know nothing of Calvary love.

If I find myself taking lapses for granted, "Oh, that's what they always do," "Oh, of course she talks like that, he acts like that," then I know nothing of Calvary love.

If I can enjoy a joke at the expense o...

Little Is Much

Posted by Michael La Framboise on Sunday, February 17, 2013,
    There’s an old chorus we used to sing when I was a boy: Little is much when God is in it. It’s a Bible-based, time-tested truth of Christian faith.

    And so my excuses of inadequate resources are invalid, and my sense of inability or insuffici...

One Greater Than Noah

Posted by Jon Courson on Monday, February 11, 2013,
“Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.” Genesis 6:22    
 
What if Noah hadn’t done all that God commanded him to do? What if he had completed the sides of the ark, but hadn’t put the roof on? If Noah had given it a pretty good shot, but then said, “Oh well, close enough,” then we wouldn’t be here. Noah did all that God commanded him. He finished the ark. As great as Noah’s accomplishment was, however, God’s Word speaks of a far greater accomplish...

Grace In His Eyes

Posted by Jon Courson on Monday, February 4, 2013,
“But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord... Noah walked with God.” (Genesis 6:8-9)   
 
Noah walked with God because he found grace in the eyes of the Lord. Peter was another who, like Noah, looked into the eyes of the Lord. And what he saw therein caused him to weep. What did Peter see in the Lord’s eyes? I believe your answer is a good indication of where you are in your relationship with God. You see, Peter fell asleep when he should have prayed, denied the Lord when questioned b...
