Mission Devotional - January 13, 2018

Saturday, January 13, 2018 "The iron did swim." Today's Devotional Reading 2 Kings 6:9 The axe-head seemed hopelessly lost, and as it was borrowed, the honour of the prophetic band was likely to be imperiled, and so the name of their God to be compromised. Contrary to all expectation, the iron was made to mount from the depth of the stream and to swim; for things impos...

Friday, January 12, 2018 "I have yet to speak on God's behalf." Today's Devotional Reading Job 36:2 We ought not to court publicity for our virtue, or notoriety for our zeal; but, at the same time, it is a sin to be always seeking to hide that which God has bestowed upon us for the good of others. A Christian is not to be a village in a valley, but "a city set upon a h...

Thursday, January 11, 2018 "I have prayed for thee." Today's Devotional Reading Luke 22:32 How encouraging is the thought of the Redeemer's never-ceasing intercession for us. When we pray, he pleads for us; and when we are not praying, he is advocating our cause, and by his supplications shielding us from unseen dangers. Notice the word of comfort addressed to Peter - ...

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 "In my flesh shall I see God." Today's Devotional Reading Job 19:26 Mark the subject of Job's devout anticipation "I shall see God." He does not say, "I shall see the saints" - though doubtless that will be untold felicity - but, "I shall see God." It is not - "I shall see the pearly gates, I shall behold the walls of jasper, I shall gaze up...

Tuesday, January 9, 2018 "Serve the Lord with gladness." Today's Devotional Reading Psalm 100:2 Delight in divine service is a token of acceptance. Those who serve God with a sad countenance, because they do what is unpleasant to them, are not serving him at all; they bring the form of homage, but the life is absent. Our God requires no slaves to grace his throne; he i...

Monday, January 8, 2018 "Thy love is better than wine." Today's Devotional Reading Song of Solomon 1:2 Nothing gives the believer so much joy as fellowship with Christ. He has enjoyment as others have in the common mercies of life, he can be glad both in God's gifts and God's works; but in all these separately, yea, and in all of them added together, he doth not find s...

Today's Devotional Reading Song of Solomon 4:12 Observe the sweet titles with which the heavenly Solomon with intense affection addresses his bride the church.

Saturday, January 6, 2018 "Now the hand of the Lord was upon me in the evening." Today's Devotional Reading Ezekiel 33:22 In the way of judgment this may be the case, and, if so, be it mine to consider the reason of such a visitation, and bear the rod and him that hath appointed it. I am not the only one who is chastened in the night season; let me cheerfully submit to...

Friday, January 5, 2018 "And God saw the light." Today's Devotional Reading Genesis 1:4 We have noticed the goodness of the light, and the Lord's dividing it from the darkness, we now note the special eye which the Lord had for the light. "God saw the light" - he looked at it with complacency, gazed upon it with pleasure, saw that it "was good." If the Lord has given y...

Thursday, January 4, 2018 "And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew not him." Today's Devotional Reading Genesis 42:8 Our desires went forth for growth in our acquaintance with the Lord Jesus; it may be well now to consider a kindred topic, namely, our heavenly Joseph's knowledge of us. This was most blessedly perfect long before we had the slightest knowledge of hi...
