“Praying God’s Word Day-by-Day” – Beth Moore
Jesus flaunts His love for you. He waves His hand over you, signaling to all in sight that you are the one He loves.
Help me to also be perpetually aware that You chose me, so I never need to feel left out. You have loved me and known me from the foundation of the world.
Streams in the Desert – L. B. Cowman
Every further step of spiritual growth in God’s grace must be preceded by acknowledging our lack of a godly attribute and then by exhibiting a prayerful determination to obtain it.
Today many people are attempting to use their mental capacities and logical thinking to obtain sanctification, yet this is nothing but a religious fabrication. They believe that if they just mentally put themselves on the altar and believe the altar provides the gift of sanctification, they can then logically conclude they are fully sanctified. Then they go happily on their way, expressing their flippant, theological babble about the “deep” things of God.
Yet the heartstrings of their old nature have not been broken, and their unyielding character, which they inherited from Adam, has not been ground to powder. Their soul has not throbbed with the lonely, gushing groans of Gethsemane. Having no scars from their death on Calvary, they will exhibit nothing of the soft, sweet, gentle, restful, victorious, overflowing, and triumphant life that flows like a spring morning from an empty tomb.
