Friday, July 13, 2018 "When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me." Today's Devotional Reading Psalm 56:9 It is impossible for any human speech to express the full meaning of this delightful phrase, "God is for me."

Tuesday, July 10, 2018 "And the evening and the morning were the first day." Today's Devotional Reading Genesis 1:5 The evening was "darkness" and the morning was "light," and yet the two together are called by the name that is given to the light alone!

Monday, July 9, 2018 "And God divided the light from the darkness." Today's Devotional Reading Genesis 1:4 A believer has two principles at work within him.

Saturday, July 7, 2018 "When I passed by thee, I said unto the, Live." Today's Devotional Reading Ezekiel 16:6 Saved one, consider gratefully this mandate of mercy. Note that this fiat of God is majestic. In our text, we perceive a sinner with nothing in him but sin, expecting nothing but wrath; but the eternal Lord passes by in his glory; he looks, he pauses, and he p...

Friday, July 6, 2018 "How many are mine iniquities and sins." Today's Devotional Reading Job 13:23 Have you ever really weighed and considered how great the sin of God's people is?
