The Glory



Evening Bible Verse



Strength Today

Be silent in the Lord’s presence, all people everywhere, for he is being moved to action in his holy dwelling place. [Zech 2:13]

Be earth, with all her scenes, withdrawn;

Let noise and vanity be gone:

In secret silence of the mind,

My heaven, and there my God, I find.

~ I. WATTS ~

It is only with the pious affection of the will that we can be spiritually attentive to God. As long as the noisy restlessness of the thoughts goes on, the gentle and holy desires of the new nature are overpowered and inactive.


There is hardly ever a complete silence in our soul. God is whispering to us wellnigh incessantly. Whenever the sounds of the world die out in the soul, or sink low, then we hear these whisperings of God. He is always whispering to us, only we do not always hear, because of the noise, hurry, and distraction which life causes as it rushes on.

~ F. W. FABER ~

The prayer of faith is a sincere, sweet, and quiet view of divine, eternal truth. The soul rests quiet, perceiving and loving God; sweetly rejecting all the imaginations that present themselves, calming the mind in the Divine presence, and fixing it only on God.



Jesus Calling [Evening]

THE APOSTLE PAUL had endured tremendous affliction: He had been imprisoned, beaten, and stoned; he had been shipwrecked three times; he had often been hungry, thirsty, and cold. Yet he considered his massive troubles a weightless trifle because he was comparing them with eternal Glory. I am training you to view your problems this way too—from an eternal perspective.

Our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.


Before you turn out the light:

Evaluate how well you are handling the adversity in your life. I don’t waste anything, including your suffering.

~ Sarah Young ~


Live Loved [Prayer]

Blessed Father, as you helped David conquer a stronghold, so you can help us conquer the strongholds in our lives. You have promised freedom and victory. Father, will you break these strongholds with your mighty power? You steady us with your love, amen.

My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

[Psalm 121:2]

Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.

[Psalm 50:15]

“Your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.”

[Matthew 6:8]

~ Max Lucado ~


Evening Devotional

I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. [Psalm 145:1]

It's important to praise God and recognize His glory. There are several ways to exalt the creator of the universe. The most obvious is using words of recognition towards others. Actions can also convey praise, such as song and dance. Another is using your talents and skills to acclaim God as most high. Are you giving God the praise and glory He deserves?
