Mission Devotional - February 28, 2017

"My expectation is from him." Today's Devotional Reading Psalm 62:5 It is the believer's privilege to use this language. If he is looking for aught from the world, it is a poor "expectation" indeed. But if he looks to God for the supply of his wants, whether in temporal or spiritual blessings, his "expectation" will not be a vain one. Constantly he may draw from the ban...

"Thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation." Today's Devotional Reading Psalm 91:9 The Israelites in the wilderness were continually exposed to change. Whenever the pillar stayed its motion, the tents were pitched; but tomorrow, ere the morning sun had risen, the trumpet sounded, the ark was in motion, and the fiery, cloudy pillar ...

"Salvation is of the Lord." Today's Devotional Reading Jonah 2:9 Salvation is the work of God. It is he alone who quickens the soul "dead in trespasses and sins," and it is he also who maintains the soul in its spiritual life. He is both "Alpha and Omega." "Salvation is of the Lord." If I am prayerful, God makes me prayerful; if I have graces, they are God's gifts to me...

"The wrath to come." Today's Devotional Reading Matthew 3:7 It is pleasant to pass over a country after a storm has spent itself; to smell the freshness of the herbs after the rain has passed away, and to note the drops while they glisten like purest diamonds in the sunlight. That is the position of a Christian. He is going through a land where the storm has spent itsel...

"I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing." Today's Devotional Reading Ezekiel 34:26 Here is sovereign mercy - "I will give them the shower in its season." Is it not sovereign, divine mercy? - for who can say, "I will give them showers," except God? There is only one voice which can speak to the clouds, and bid them beget t...

"I will never leave thee." Today's Devotional Reading Hebrews 13:5 No promise is of private interpretation. Whatever God has said to any one saint, he has said to all. When he opens a well for one, it is that all may drink. When he openeth a granary-door to give out food, there may be some one starving man who is the occasion of its being opened, but all hungry saints m...

"His bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob." Today's Devotional Reading Genesis 49:24 That strength which God gives to his Josephs is real strength; it is not a boasted valour, a fiction, a thing of which men talk, but which ends in smoke; it is true - divine strength. Why does Joseph stand against temp...

"He hath said." Today's Devotional Reading Hebrews 13:5 If we can only grasp these words by faith, we have an all-conquering weapon in our hand. What doubt will not be slain by this two-edged sword? What fear is there which shall not fall smitten with a deadly wound before this arrow from the bow of God's covenant? Will not the distresses of life and the pangs of death;...

"God, that comforteth those that are cast down." Today's Devotional Reading 2 Corinthians 7:6 And who comforteth like him? Go to some poor, melancholy, distressed child of God; tell him sweet promises, and whisper in his ear choice words of comfort; he is like the deaf adder, he listens not to the voice of the charmer, charm he never so wisely. He is drinking gall and w...

"Thus saith the Lord God; I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them." Today's Devotional Reading Ezekiel 36:37 Prayer is the forerunner of mercy. Turn to sacred history, and you will find that scarcely ever did a great mercy come to this world unheralded by supplication. You have found this true in your own personal experience. God has...

"Shew me wherefore thou contendest with me." Today's Devotional Reading Job 10:2 Perhaps, O tried soul, the Lord is doing this to develop thy graces. There are some of thy graces which would never be discovered if it were not for thy trials. Dost thou not know that thy faith never looks so grand in summer weather as it does in winter? Love is too often like a glow-worm,...

"Isaac dwelt by the well Lahai-roi." Today's Devotional Reading Genesis 25:11 Hagar had once found deliverance there and Ishmael had drank from the water so graciously revealed by the God who liveth and seeth the sons of men; but this was a merely casual visit, such as worldlings pay to the Lord in times of need, when it serves their turn. They cry to him in trouble, bu...

"I have learned, in whatever state I am, therewith to be content." Today's Devotional Reading Philippians 4:11 These words show us that contentment is not a natural propensity of man. "Ill weeds grow apace." Covetousness, discontent, and murmuring are as natural to man as thorns are to the soil. We need not sow thistles and brambles; they come up naturally enough, becau...

"To him be glory both now and forever." Today's Devotional Reading 2 Peter 3:18 Heaven will be full of the ceaseless praises of Jesus. Eternity! thine unnumbered years shall speed their everlasting course, but forever and for ever, "to him be glory." Is he not a "Priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek"? "To him be glory." Is he not king for ever? - King of kings...

"And his allowance was a continual allowance given him of the king, a daily rate for every day, all the days of his life." Today's Devotional Reading 2 Kings 25:30 Jehoiachin was not sent away from the king's palace with a store to last him for months, but his provision was given him as a daily pension.

"Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God." Today's Devotional Reading 1 John 3:1-2 "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us."

"For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, our consolation also aboundeth by Christ." Today's Devotional Reading 2 Corinthians 1:5 There is a blessed proportion. The Ruler of Providence bears a pair of scales - in this side he puts his people's trials, and in that he puts their consolations. When the scale of trial is nearly empty, you will always find the scale of...

"And they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus." Today's Devotional Reading Acts 4:13 A Christian should be a striking likeness of Jesus Christ. You have read lives of Christ, beautifully and eloquently written, but the best life of Christ is his living biography, written out in the words and actions of his people. If we were what we profess to be, and ...

"I know how to abound." Today's Devotional Reading Philippians 4:12 There are many who know "how to be abased" who have not learned "how to abound." When they are set upon the top of a pinnacle their heads grow dizzy, and they are ready to fall. The Christian far oftener disgraces his profession in prosperity than in adversity. It is a dangerous thing to be prosperous. ...

"And David enquired of the Lord." Today's Devotional Reading 2 Samuel 5:23 When David made this enquiry he had just fought the Philistines, and gained a signal victory. The Philistines came up in great hosts, but, by the help of God, David had easily put them to flight. Note, however, that when they came a second time, David did not go up to fight them without enquiring...

"Thou shalt call his name Jesus." Today's Devotional Reading Matthew 1:21 When a person is dear, everything connected with him becomes dear for his sake. Thus, so precious is the person of the Lord Jesus in the estimation of all true believers, that everything about him they consider to be inestimable beyond all price. "All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and ca...

"Arise, and depart." Today's Devotional Reading Micah 2:10 The hour is approaching when the message will come to us, as it comes to all - "Arise, and go forth from the home in which thou hast dwelt, from the city in which thou hast done thy business, from thy family, from thy friends. Arise, and take thy last journey." And what know we of the journey? And what know we o...

"Praying always." Today's Devotional Reading Ephesians 6:18 What multitudes of prayers we have put up from the first moment when we learned to pray. Our first prayer was a prayer for ourselves; we asked that God would have mercy upon us, and blot out our sin. He heard us. But when he had blotted out our sins like a cloud, then we had more prayers for ourselves. We have ...

"The Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world." Today's Devotional Reading 1 John 4:14 It is a sweet thought that Jesus Christ did not come forth without his Father's permission, authority, consent, and assistance. He was sent of the Father, that he might be the Saviour of men. We are too apt to forget that, while there are distinctions as to the persons in th...

Today's Devotional Reading Hosea 3:1 Believer, look back through all thine experience, and think of the way whereby the Lord thy God has led thee in the wilderness, and how he hath fed and clothed thee every day - how he hath borne with thine ill manners - how he hath put up with all thy murmurings, and all thy longings after the flesh-pots of Eg...

"Therefore, brethren, we are debtors." Today's Devotional Reading Romans 8:12 As God's creatures, we are all debtors to him: to obey him with all our body, and soul, and strength. Having broken his commandments, as we all have, we are debtors to his justice, and we owe to him a vast amount which we are not able to pay. But of the Christian it can be said that he does no...
