“Whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.” ~ Proverbs 1:33 ~ Divine love is rendered conspicuous when it I shines in the midst of judgments.

“Called to be saints.” ~ Romans 1:7 ~ We are very apt to regard the apostolic saints as if they were “saints” in a more especial manner than the other children of God. All are “saints” whom God has called by His grace, and sanctified by His Spirit; but we are apt to look upon the apostles as extraordinary beings,… (more…)

“Sanctify them through Thy truth.” ~ John 17:17 ~ Sanctification begins in regeneration. The Spirit of God infuses into man that new living principle by which he becomes “a new creature” in Christ Jesus. This work, which begins in the new birth, is carried on in two ways—mortification, whereby the lusts of the flesh are subdued and kept under; and… (more…)

“The ill favoured and lean fleshed kine did eat up the seven well favoured and fat kine.” ~ Genesis 41:4 ~ Pharaoh’s dream has too often been my waking experience. My days of sloth have ruinously destroyed all that I had achieved in times of zealous industry; my seasons of coldness have frozen all the genial glow of my periods… (more…)

“Our heart shall rejoice in Him.” ~ Psalm 33:21 ~ Blessed is the fact that Christians can rejoice even in the deepest distress; although trouble may surround them, they still sing; and, like many birds, they sing best in their cages. The waves may roll over them, but their souls soon rise to the surface and see the light of… (more…)

“In summer and in winter shall it be.” ~ Zechariah 14:8~ The streams of living water which flow from Jerusalem are not dried up by the parching heats of sultry midsummer any more than they were frozen by the cold winds of blustering winter.

“And the glory which Thou gavest me I have given them.” ~ John 17:22 ~ Behold the superlative liberality of the Lord Jesus, for He hath given us His all.

“Them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 4:14 ~ Let us not imagine that the soul sleeps in insensibility. “Today shalt thou be with me in paradise,” is the whisper of Christ to every dying saint.

“Looking unto Jesus.” ~ Hebrews 12:2 ~ It is ever the Holy Spirit’s work to turn our eyes away from self to Jesus; but Satan’s work is just the opposite of this, for he is constantly trying to make us regard ourselves instead of Christ. He insinuates, “Your sins are too great for pardon; you have no faith; you do… (more…)

“Only ye shall not go very far away.” ~ Exodus 8:28 ~ This is a crafty word from the lip of the arch-tyrant Pharaoh.

“Art thou become like unto us?” ~ Isaiah 14:10 ~ What must be the apostate professor’s doom when his naked soul appears before God?

“Get thee up into the high mountain.” ~ Isaiah 40:9 ~ Our knowledge of Christ is somewhat like climbing one of our Welsh mountains. When you are at the base you see but little: the mountain itself appears to be but one-half as high as it really is. Confined in a little valley, you discover scarcely anything but the rippling… (more…)

“Ephraim is a cake not turned.” ~ Hosea 7:8 ~ A cake not turned is uncooked on one side; and so Ephraim was, in many respects, untouched by divine grace: though there was some partial obedience, there was very much rebellion left. My soul, I charge thee, see whether this be thy case. Art thou thorough in the things of… (more…)

“He shall build the temple of the Lord; and He shall bear the glory.” ~ Zechariah 6:13 ~ Christ Himself is the builder of His spiritual temple, and He has built it on the mountains of His unchangeable affection, His omnipotent grace, and His infallible truthfulness.

“Thou art fairer than the children of men.” ~ Psalm 45:2 ~ The entire person of Jesus is but as one gem, and His life is all along but one impression of the seal. He is altogether complete; not only in His several parts, but as a gracious all-glorious whole. His character is not a mass of fair colours mixed… (more…)

“For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.” ~ Amos 9:9 ~ Every sifting comes by divine command and permission. Satan must ask leave before he can lay a finger upon Job. Nay, more,… (more…)

“And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost.” ~ Acts 2:4 ~ Rich were the blessings of this day if all of us were filled with the Holy Ghost.

“Thy Redeemer.” ~Isaiah 54:5 ~ Jesus, the Redeemer, is altogether ours and ours for ever. All the offices of Christ are held on our behalf. He is king for us, priest for us, and prophet for us. Whenever we read a new title of the Redeemer, let us appropriate Him as ours under that name as much as under any… (more…)

“Help, Lord.” ~ Psalm 12:1 ~ The prayer itself is remarkable, for it is short, but seasonable, sententious, and suggestive. David mourned the fewness of faithful men, and therefore lifted up his heart in supplication—when the creature failed, he flew to the Creator. He evidently felt his own weakness, or he would not have cried for help; but at the… (more…)

“And I give unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish.” ~ John 10:28 ~ The Christian should never think or speak lightly of unbelief. For a child of God to mistrust His love, His truth, His faithfulness, must be greatly displeasing to Him. How can we ever grieve Him by doubting His upholding grace? Christian! it is contrary… (more…)

“And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me.” ~ Genesis 21:6 ~ It was far above the power of nature, and even contrary to its laws, that the aged Sarah should be honoured with a son; and even so it is beyond all ordinary rules that I, a poor, helpless,… (more…)

“Delight thyself also in the Lord.” ~ Psalm 37:4 ~ The teaching of these words must seem very surprising to those who are strangers to vital godliness, but to the sincere believer it is only the inculcation of a recognized truth. The life of the believer is here described as a delight in God, and we are thus certified of… (more…)

“Whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” ~ Revelation 22:17 ~ Jesus says, “take freely.” He wants no payment or preparation. He seeks no recommendation from our virtuous emotions. If you have no good feelings, if you be but willing, you are invited; therefore come! You have no belief and no repentance,—come to Him, and He will… (more…)

“Thou art weighed in the balances and art found wanting.” ~ Daniel 5:27 ~ It is well frequently to weigh ourselves in the scale of God’s Word. You will find it a holy exercise to read some psalm of David, and, as you meditate upon each verse, to ask yourself, “Can I say this? Have I felt as David felt?… (more…)

“We love Him because He first loved us.” ~ 1 John 4:19 ~ Ther is no light in the planet but that which proceedeth from the sun; and there is no true love to Jesus in the heart but that which cometh from the Lord Jesus himself.

“We live unto the Lord.” ~ Romans 14:8 ~ If God had willed it, each of us might have entered heaven at the moment of conversion. It was not absolutely necessary for our preparation for immortality that we should tarry here. It is possible for a man to be taken to heaven, and to be found meet to be a… (more…)

“The Lord hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad.” ~ Psalm 126:3 ~ Some Christians are sadly prone to look on the dark side of everything, and to dwell more upon what they have gone through than upon what God has done for them. Ask for their impression of the Christian life, and they will describe their… (more…)

“There fell down many slain, because the war was of God.” ~ 1 Chronicles 5:22. ~ Warrior, fighting under the banner of the Lord Jesus, observe this verse with holy joy, for as it was in the days of old so is it now, if the war be of God the victory is sure. The sons of Reuben, and the… (more…)

“Ye that love the Lord hate evil.” ~ Psalm 97:10 ~ Thou hast good reason to “hate evil,” for only consider what harm it has already wrought thee. Oh, what a world of mischief sin has brought into thy heart! Sin blinded thee so that thou couldst not see the beauty of the Saviour; it made thee deaf so that… (more…)

“Behold, I am vile.” ~ Job 40:4 ~ One cheering word, poor lost sinner, for thee! You think you must not come to God because YOU are vile. Now, there is not a saint living on earth but has been made to feel that he is vile. If Job, and Isaiah, and Paul were all obliged to say “I am… (more…)

“The Lord shut him in.” ~ Genesis 7:16 ~ Noah was shut in away from all the world by the hand of divine love. The door of electing purpose interposes between us and the world which lieth in the wicked one. We are not of the world even as our Lord Jesus was not of the world. Into the sin, the… (more…)

“The kindness and love of God our Saviour.” ~ Titus 3:4 ~ How sweet it is to behold the Saviour communing with His own beloved people!

“These were potters, and those that dwelt among plants and hedges: there they dwelt with the king for his work.” ~ 1 Chronicles 4:23 ~ Potters were not the very highest grade of workers, but “the king” needed potters, and therefore they were in royal service, although the material upon which they worked was nothing but clay. We, too, may… (more…)

“For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh.”. ~ Galatians 5:17 ~ In every believer’s heart there is a constant struggle between the old nature and the new.
