Daily Quiet Time

He … said … I … hid thy talent in the earth…. His Lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant.
~ Matt 25:24-26

Between the great things we cannot do and the small things we will not do, the danger is that we shall do nothing.

Daily Quiet Time

The love of Christ constraineth us.
~ 2 Cor 5:14

The love of Christ is too large for any heart to hold it. It will overflow into others’ hearts: it will give itself out, give itself away, for the enriching of other lives. The heart of Christ is a costly thing for any one to have. It will lead those who have it where it led Him. If it cost Him the cross, it will cost them no less.

~ J. M. Campbell

Daily Quiet Time

“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it!”

~ Isa 55:10-11

Everyone knows the effect of the rain, especially when it falls on a field that has been parched and withered. Its drops go down to the roots of the dying grass, the fading flowers, and the drooping trees–and soon new life appears everywhere. The grass is greener. The flowers revive and pour out fragrance. All vegetation is renewed. So it is when God’s Word comes to a fainting, failing human life.

Sometimes rain comes in storms, with black clouds and fierce lightnings and thunders. People tremble and are afraid as they look on. But the storm passes, pouring out rich blessings of rain, which make all the fields rejoice. God sometimes sends his Word to us in dark, portentous forms–sickness, loss, disappointment, sorrow, trial. At first we are terrified; but in the end, when the storms have cleared away, we find that the dark clouds we so dreaded–were but God’s messengers to bring to us rich blessings of grace.

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.

Forgetting those things which are behind … I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

~ Phil 3:13-14

It is not by regretting what is irreparable that true work is to be done, but by making the best of what we are. It is not by complaining that we have not the right tools, but by using well the tools we have. What we are, and where we are, is God’s providential arrangement God’s doing, though it may be man’s misdoing. Life is a series of mistakes, and he is not the best Christian who makes the fewest false steps. He is the best who wins the most splendid victories by the retrieval of mistakes.
