Seemeth It A Light Thing? – 1 Samuel 18:23

1 Samuel 18:23 ‘…And David said, Seemeth it to you a light thing to be a king’s son in law, seeing that I am a poor man, and lightly esteemed?’ Saul had already dealt unfairly with David. After promising to give him Merab to wife, Saul gave Merab to another man. Notwithstanding, David maintained an […]

All the Cities of the Amorites – Numbers 21:25

Numbers 21:25 ‘And Israel took all these cities: and Israel dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all the villages thereof.’ By the power of God, the Israelites pushed Sihon, king of the Amorites from his throne in Heshbon, and inhabited his land. The Amorites had boasted in victory over […]

Immanuel’s Ground – Philippians 2:8

Philippians 2:8 ‘And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.’ Someone recently sent me this quote by Andrew Murray: ‘Jesus lost nothing by giving everything to God…Christ’s humility was simply the surrender of Himself to God, to allow the Father to do […]

Fulness of Grace – John 1:16

John 1:16 ‘And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.’ What a treasure these earthen vessels possess! Christ in believers, the hope of glory! In Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and He in us. Our wonder at this is only eclipsed by a stubborn refusal to yield […]

Strengthened From Above – Isaiah 40:27

Isaiah 40:27 ‘Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?’ If God created and sustains the stars, and calls them all by names, then why should believers make the same complaint as Jacob? Jehovah, the all-powerful, unwearied, and self-existent […]

God’s Love in Us – 1 John 4:8

1 John 4:8 ‘He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.’ Sometimes we think to ourselves, ‘If it were not for the irritation caused by this or that person, I could be always loving. No, dear brethren. Love is in the heart, not in happenstance. Neither does love originate in our hearts, but in the […]

As David – Zechariah 12:8

David, the great conqueror, fearless, courageous, routing all the enemies of God, skilled in harp, pen, and sword, subduing his adversaries on every side! O to be like David! But who, or rather what was David? Five smooth stones from the brook, a staff, and a scrip. A youth with a ruddy and fair countenance. Fresh from […]

Chosen to Bear Fruit – John 15:16

John 15:16 ‘Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit…’ Here is a word of consolation and reassurance to every labourer in God’s vineyard. He Who is Lord of the vineyard is also Lord of the harvest. The field and the produce of […]

That I May Know Him – Philippians 3:7-8a

Philippians 3:7-8a ‘But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord.’ In the book of Philippians, Paul talks about his losses and his gains. And the gains always outweighed the losses. For example, […]

The Lord Stood By Him – Acts 23:11

Acts 23:11 ‘And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said, Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so must thou bear witness also at Rome.’ What hope must have sprung up in Paul in that dark hour of the night! Being jostled by circumstances, and […]
