Oaks of Righteousness Need Rain to Grow – Coffee with God – August 13

Standard

Praying God’s Word Day-by-Day – Beth Moore

You Word declares that will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.  We will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; we will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations. – Isaiah 61:3b-4

Now is my time of grief, but I will see You again and I will rejoice, and no one will take away my joy.  – John 16:22

Jesus Calling – Sarah Young

Learn to enjoy life more. . . .The more you focus on My Presence with you, the more fully you can enjoy life.  Glorify Me through your pleasure in Me.  Thus you proclaim My Presence to the watching world. ( Matthew 1:23; John 10:10-11)

Streams in the Desert – L. B. Cowman

If clouds are full of water, they pour rain upon the earth. – Ecclesiastes 11:3

Our troubles have always brought us blessings, and they always will, for they are the dark chariots of God’s bright and glorious grace. . . . Our God may drench us with grief, but He will refresh us with His mercy.  Our Lord’s love letters often come to us in dark envelopes. . . . Faith sees the clouds emptying themselves and thereby making the hills on every side rejoice.

Charles H. Spurgeon

The cry wrung from your spirit’s pain
May echo on some far-off plain,
And guide a wanderer home again.
