Wait on the Lord, ACQUIESCING IN HIS WILL

RR-May 26, 2016     Men may be wrong; God cannot be. Whatever he does, he wills; and whatever he wills is good. Whatever he permits is for wise reasons– and because he can overrule it for his own glory and the good of his people. All things lie open before him. He sees the…

Wait on the Lord in HOPE

RR-May 26, 2016     That is, expecting that he will work for you, give good things to you, or effectuate your deliverance. Say with David– “I will hope continually, and will yet praise you more and more.” The promises are intended to raise your expectation, and past experience should strengthen it. There can be…

Life as a Ladder

CH-May 26-May 31, 2016     By J. R. Miller, 1888   “Beauty and truth, and all that these contain, Drop not like ripened fruit about our feet; We climb to them through years of sweat and pain!” “When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking…

Wait on the Lord, for HE CAN NOT DECEIVE

RR-May 25, 2016     He is truth itself. It is impossible for God to lie. He can not change his mind, break his promise, or falsify his word. Heaven and earth may pass away, but his word shall never pass away. Creatures may prove false and fickle, but he is in one mind, and…

Wait on the Lord in QUIETNESS OF SOUL

RR-May 25, 2016     This is sometimes very difficult, especially when the conflict within is severe, and the storms of trouble roar. Yet it is a duty, and not only a duty, but a privilege. Reasoning will do but little good. Resistance will injure us. Therefore David took another course. Hear his words– “Lord,…

Wait on the Lord, WATCHING

RR-May 24, 2016     Watch the hand of God as it works in nature and providence; but remember that it is moved by the heart of God, which is correctly represented in his word. You may mistake the meaning of his works much easier than you can the meaning of his word; and therefore…

Wait on the Lord, SEARCHING HIS WORD

RR-May 24, 2016     All that the Lord has to say to us is to be found in his word. That word is to direct us in difficulty, to counsel us in perplexity, to guide us in danger, to comfort us in trouble, and to encourage us under depression. It is to be a…

Wait on the Lord, PRAYING

RR-May 23, 2016     Prayer is the solace of the soul; therefore the Apostle directs us in everything to pray. Indeed, we can not be said to wait upon God without prayer; for prayer is the fixing of the eye, the outgoing of the heart, the breathing of the spirit, the cry of the…

Wait on the Lord, BELIEVING

RR-May 23, 2016     We should live by faith, walk by faith, and constantly exercise faith. Believe, therefore, what your God has said of himself, of his designs toward you, and of his care over you. Believe in the precious promises he has made to you, in the sweet assurances he has given to…

Preach the Word of God

CH-May 23-May 25, 2016     By Wil Pounds   To preach the gospel of the grace of God is the greatest and most wonderful and the highest calling in the entire world. There is nothing more rewarding than the faithful preaching of the Word of God. Preaching is essential and indispensable to Christianity. DEFINITION…
