Quiet Time

They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk, and not faint.
~ Isa 40:31

The eagle that soars in the upper air does not worry itself as to how it is to cross rivers.

Cleanse thou me from secret faults.

~ Ps 19:12

The world wants men who are saved from secret faults. The world can put on an outside goodness and go very far in uprightness and morality, and it expects that a Christian shall go beyond it, and be free from secret faults. A little crack will spoil the ring of the coin…. The world expects, and rightly, that the Christian should be more gentle, and patient, and generous, than he who does not profess to be a disciple of the Lord Jesus. For the sake of those who take their notion of religion from our lives, we need to put up this prayer earnestly, “Cleanse thou me from secret faults.”

Quiet Time

When they saw the star they shouted joyfully.

[Matt 2:10 NET]

We who look for Jesus ought to be joyful; it is no credit to our Lord when we look as though we were seeking His grave. The dull looks of Christ’s followers have injured Him in the sight of the world. Let us, then, smile as we go, for we have the star if we will look up and put ourselves in the right path.

But Jesus, paying no attention to what was said, told the synagogue ruler, “Do not be afraid; just believe.”

[Mark 5:36 NET]

Be not downcast if difficulties and trials surround you in your heavenly life. They may be purposely placed there by God to train and discipline you for higher developments of faith. If He calls you to “toiling in rowing,” it may be to make you the hardier seaman, to lead you to lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, and, above all, to drive you to a holier trust in Him who has the vessel and its destinies in His hand, and who, amid gathering clouds and darkened horizon and crested billows is ever uttering the mild rebuke to our misgivings “Said I not unto thee, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldst see the glory of God.”

Quiet Time

When they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and discovered that they were uneducated and ordinary men, they were amazed and recognized these men had been with Jesus.

[Acts 4:13 NET]

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 what we should be, we would be pictures of Christ; yea, such striking likenesses of Him that the world would not have to hold us up by the hour together, and say, “Well, it seems somewhat of a likeness”: but they would, when they once beheld us, exclaim, “He has been with Jesus; he has been taught of Him; he is like Him; he has caught the very idea of the holy Man of Nazareth, and he works it out in his life and every day actions.”

Quiet Time

And we have come to know and to believe the love that God has in us. God is love, and the one who resides in love resides in God, and God resides in him.

[1 John 4:16 NET]

God is love; and it is good, as it is true, to think that every sun–ray that touches the earth has the sun at the other end of it; so every bit of love upon God’s earth has God at the other end of it.
