SEPTEMBER 26

MORNING

A God of truth and without iniquity, just

and right is he.

H IM that judgeth righteously.--We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.--Every one of us shall give account of himself to God.--The soul that sinneth, it shall die.

      Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd.--The LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.--Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.--Mercy rejoiceth against judgment.--The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

      A just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.--Just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.--Justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.

DEUT. 32. 4. 1 Pe. 2. 23.--2 Co. 5. 10.--
Ro. 14. 12.--Eze. 18. 4. Zec. 13. 7.--
Is. 53. 6.--Ps. 85. 10.--Ja. 2. 13.--Ro. 6. 23.
Is. 45. 21. Ro. 3. 26.--Ro. 3. 24.

EVENING

Death is swallowed up in victory.

T HANKS be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

      Forasmuch . . . as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

      If we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

      Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

      In all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

1 COR. 15. 54. 1 Co. 15. 57. He. 2. 14, 15.
Ro. 6. 8-10. Ro. 6. 11. 8. 37.

NOVEMBER 21

MORNING

Him that cometh to me I will in no wise

cast out.

I T shall come to pass, when he crieth unto me, that I will hear; for I am gracious.--I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them: for I am the LORD their God.--I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant.

      Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.--Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.--Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

      A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench.

JOHN 6. 37. Ex. 22. 27.--Le. 26. 44.--
Eze. 16. 60. Is. 1. 18.--Is. 55. 7.--
Lu. 23. 42, 43. Is. 42. 3.

EVENING

His dear Son.

L O a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.--Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth.--The only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father.

      In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. . . . And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love.

      The glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.--Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God.

NOVEMBER 22

MORNING

Praying in the Holy Ghost.

G OD is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.--We . . . have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

      O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

      The Spirit . . . helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.--This is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us.--When he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth.

      Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication.

Mat. 26. 39. Ro. 8. 26, 27.--1 John 5. 14.--
John 16. 13. Ep. 6. 18.

EVENING

There is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.

A BRUISED reed shall he not break.--He restoreth my soul.

      Godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.--No chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

      Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.--After all that is come upon us for our evil deeds, and for our great trespass, seeing that thou our God hast punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and hast given us such deliverance as this.

      Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me. He will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness.

JOB 14. 7. Is. 42. 3.--Ps. 23. 3. 2 Co. 7. 10.--

NOVEMBER 23

MORNING

Whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

L ORD, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.--He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.--His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

      Your life is hid with Christ in God.--He that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.--Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.--God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear.

      Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.--Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.--I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

Col. 3. 3.--Zec. 2. 8.--Ex. 14. 13, 14.--
Ps. 46. 1, 2. Mat. 14. 27.--Lu. 24. 38, 39.--
2 Ti. 1. 12.

EVENING

My kingdom is not of this world.

T HIS man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; from henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.--Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

      He must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.

      Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.--He raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: and hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.--He shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords.

NOVEMBER 24

MORNING

My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.

B OTH he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.--In Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.--Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.--Blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

      Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.--My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

      If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth.--Whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.


LUKE 8. 21. He. 2. 11, 12.--Ga. 5. 6.--
John 15. 14.--Lu. 11. 28. Mat. 7. 21.--
John 4. 34. 1 John 1. 6.--1 John 2. 5.

EVENING

What doest thou here, Elijah?

H E knoweth the way that I take.--O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me. Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?--If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

      Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are.--The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.--Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.--A just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again.

      Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.--The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.--Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

NOVEMBER 25

MORNING

Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

Y E cannot serve God and mammon.--When ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

      Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

      If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.--Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

      O LORD our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us: but by thee only will we make mention of thy name.--I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.

Ro. 10. 4. John 12. 26.--Mat. 11. 29, 30.
Is. 26. 13.--Ps. 119. 32.

EVENING

Whosoever shall call on the name of the

Lord shall be saved.

M ANASSEH . . . did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, after the abominations of the heathen, . . . and he reared up altars for Baal. . . . And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD. . . . And he made his son pass through the fire, and observed times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.--And when he was in affliction, he besought the LORD his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers, and prayed unto him: and he was intreated of him, and heard his supplication.

      Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.--The Lord is . . . longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish.

NOVEMBER 26

MORNING

The LORD delighteth in thee.

T HUS saith the LORD that created thee, . . . Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.--Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.

      The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.--My delights were with the sons of men.--The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.--They shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

      You, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight.


ISA. 62. 4. Is. 43. 1.--Is. 49. 15, 16.
Ps. 37. 23.--Pr. 8. 31.--Ps. 147. 11.--
Mal. 3. 17. Col. 1. 21, 22.

EVENING

The sorrow of the world worketh death.

W HEN Ahithophel saw that his counsel was not followed, he saddled his ass, and arose, and gat him home to his house, to his city, and put his household in order, and hanged himself, and died.--A wounded spirit who can bear?

      Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?--The LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, . . . to comfort all that mourn; to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.--Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

      Philip . . . preached unto him Jesus.--He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.

2 COR. 7. 10. 2 Sa. 17. 23.--Pr. 18. 14.

NOVEMBER 27

MORNING

The glory which thou gavest me I have

given them.

I SAW . . . the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.--These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.--Upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness . . . of a man above upon it. As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD.

      I beseech thee, shew me thy glory. And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.--No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.--God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.




JOHN 17. 22. Is. 6. 1-3.--John 12. 41.--
Eze. 1. 26, 28. Ex. 33. 18, 20.--John 1. 18.--
2 Co. 4. 6.

EVENING

My son, if sinners entice thee, consent

thou not.

S HE took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.--Did not Achan the son of Zerah commit a trespass in the accursed thing, and wrath fell on all the congregation of Israel? and that man perished not alone in his iniquity.

      Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil.

      Wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.

      None of us liveth to himself.--Brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.--Take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak.--When ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.

      All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

NOVEMBER 28

MORNING

As the body without the spirit is dead, so

faith without works is dead also.

N OT every one that saith, . . . Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.--Holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.--Add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall.

      By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.




JAMES 2. 26. Mat. 7. 21.--He. 12. 14.--
2 Pe. 1. 5-10. Ep. 2. 8-9.

EVENING

As the children are partakers of flesh and

blood, he also himself likewise took
part of the same; that . . . he might
. . . deliver them who through fear
of death were all their lifetime
subject to bondage.

O DEATH, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.--For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

      We know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord. We are . . . willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

      Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

HEB. 2. 14, 15. 1 Co. 15. 55, 57.--
2 Co. 4. 16. 2 Co. 5. 1, 6-8. John 14. 1-2.

NOVEMBER 29

MORNING

We shall be satisfied with the goodness

of thy house.

O NE thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

      Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.--He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.

      He satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.--I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

      How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures. For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.

PSA. 65. 4. Ps. 27. 4. Mat. 5. 6.--Lu. 1. 53.
Ps. 107. 9.--John 6. 35. Ps. 36. 7-9.

EVENING

Do ye now believe?

W HAT doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? Faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

      By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, . . . Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead.--Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

      Whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

      By their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.--If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

NOVEMBER 30

MORNING

The Lord of peace himself give you

peace always by all means. The
Lord be with you all.

P EACE, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come.--The peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

      Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.--Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

      The Comforter . . . even the Spirit of truth.--The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace.--The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.

      My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest. And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence. For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us?

EVENING

We glory in tribulations.

I F in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

      Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: but rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.--Sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing.

      Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.--They departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.

      The God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing.

      Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.

DECEMBER 1

MORNING

A man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest.

F ORASMUCH . . . as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same.--The man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts.--I and my Father are one.

      He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.--There shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.--The LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

      When my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.--Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble.--Thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.

EVENING

Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth.

T HE new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, . . . so shall your seed and your name remain.

      We, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

      I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.

DECEMBER 2

MORNING

Ye have an unction from the Holy One,

and ye know all things.

G OD anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power.--It pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell.--Of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

      Thou anointest my head with oil.--The anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

      The Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

      The Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

1 JOHN 2. 20. Ac. 10. 38.--Col. 1. 19.--
John 1. 16. Ps. 23. 5.--1 Jo. 2. 27.
John 14. 26. Ro. 8. 26.

EVENING

Having our hearts sprinkled from an evil

conscience.

I F the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?--The blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

      We have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.

      When Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people. Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry. And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

DECEMBER 3

MORNING

I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause.

I S any thing too hard for the LORD?--Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.--Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.--Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

      Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up unto the house of the LORD, and spread it before the LORD. And Hezekiah prayed unto the LORD.

      It shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.--The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

      I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.

JOB 5. 8. Ge. 18. 14.--Ps. 37. 5.--Phi. 4. 6.--
1 Pe. 5. 7. Is. 37. 14, 15. Is. 65. 24.--
Ja. 5. 16. Ps. 116. 1, 2.

EVENING

Our bodies washed with pure water.

T HOU shalt . . . make a laver of brass, . . . and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein. For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet thereat: when they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; . . . they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not.--Your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you.--If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

      In my flesh shall I see God: whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another.--There shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth.--Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity.--I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

DECEMBER 12

MORNING

The LORD, is in the midst of thee.

F EAR thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.--Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.--The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.--Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart.

      I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain.

EVENING

Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak

unto the children of Israel, that
they go forward.

B E of good courage, and let us behave ourselves valiantly for our people, and for the cities of our God: and let the LORD do that which is good in his sight.--We made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night.

      Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.--If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God.--Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD.

      Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation.--Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.--Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord.

      Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not.

DECEMBER 14

MORNING

Make his praise glorious.

T HIS people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.--I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me. And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth.--By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

      I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore. For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.--Who is like unto thee, O LORD, . . . glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?--I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.--They sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty.

EVENING

By nature the children of wrath, even as others.

W E ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.--Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

      Job answered the LORD, and said, Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth.--The LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?

      Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.--David . . . to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.

      I obtained mercy . . . who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious.

DECEMBER 15

MORNING

Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

L OOK not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who took upon him the form of a servant.--Even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.--He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.

      When Jesus . . . saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled. Jesus wept.--Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

      Be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.

1 Pe. 3. 8, 9.

EVENING

Son, go work to day in my vineyard.

T HOU art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

      Reckon ye . . . yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.--As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: but as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.--Sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.

      Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

DECEMBER 16

MORNING

Having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

I PRAY for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

      As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.--Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.--A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

      He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.--Christ . . . loved the church, and gave himself for it; that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word.

John 15. 9.--John 15. 13, 14.--John 13. 34.

EVENING

The deep things of God.

H ENCEFORTH I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.--It is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven.

      We have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

      For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; . . . that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

MORNING

Quicken us, and we will call upon thy

name.

I T is the spirit that quickeneth.--The Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.--Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance.

      I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.--The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.--The letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.--If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.--This is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us.

      No man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

works of darkness, but rather
reprove them.

B E not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

      Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven. I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.--That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.

      In a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.

DECEMBER 18

MORNING

Let us . . . come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

B E careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.--Ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

      I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain.--Having therefore, . . . boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; and having an high priest over the house of God; let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.--We may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

EVENING

Ye shall know the truth, and the truth

shall make you free.

W HERE the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.--The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.--If the Son . . . shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

      Brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.--Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

      Whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.--Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

DECEMBER 19

MORNING

Unto the upright there ariseth light in

the darkness.

W HO is among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God.--Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.--The commandment is a lamp; and the law is light.

      Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me. I will bear the indignation of the LORD, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness.

      The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!


PSA. 112. 4. Is. 50. 10.--Ps. 37. 24.--
Pr. 6. 23. Mic. 7. 8, 9. Mat. 6. 22, 23.

EVENING

He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are

with young.

I HAVE compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: . . . I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.--We have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities.

      They brought young children to him, . . . and he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.

      I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant.--The Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.--Ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

      Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.--I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD.

DECEMBER 20

MORNING

He hath chosen us in him before the

foundation of the world.

T HAT we should be holy and without blame before him in love.

      God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: whereunto he called you, . . . to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.--Whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.--Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ.

      A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.--God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

Ro. 8. 29, 30.--1 Pe. 1. 2. Eze. 36. 26.--
1 Th. 4. 7.

EVENING

If the LORD would make windows in

heaven, might this thing be?

H AVE faith in God.--Without faith it is impossible to please God.--With God all things are possible.

      Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? or have I no power to deliver?

      My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.--Prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

      Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear.--LORD, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power.

      We should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead.

DECEMBER 21

MORNING

The days of thy mourning shall be ended.

I N the world ye shall have tribulation.--The whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.--We that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

      These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.



ISA. 60. 20. John 16. 33.--Ro. 8. 22, 23.--
2 Co. 5. 4. Re. 7. 14-17.

EVENING

Master, carest thou not that we perish?

T HE LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.

      Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.--While the earth remaineth, seed-time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

      The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.--God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is. And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.

      Take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? . . . for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.--Trust . . . in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy.

DECEMBER 22

MORNING

Your work of faith.

T HIS is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

      Faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.--Faith . . . worketh by love.--He that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.--We are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.--Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

      We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth. Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power.--It is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Ga. 5. 6.--Ga. 6. 8.--Ep. 2. 10.--Tit. 2. 14.
2 Th. 1. 3, 11.--Phi. 2. 13.

EVENING

Where is the promise of his coming?

E NOCH, . . . the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all.--Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him.

      The Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

      The grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.

DECEMBER 23

MORNING

Let him take hold of my strength, that he may make peace with me.

I KNOW the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil.--There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.

      In Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace.

      It pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; and, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself.--Christ Jesus: whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past: . . . that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.--If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

      Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength.

ISA. 27. 5. Je. 29. 11.--Is. 48. 22.
Ep. 2. 13, 14. Col. 1. 19, 20.--Ro. 3. 24-26.--
1 Jo. 1. 9. Is. 26. 4.

EVENING

God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

A S the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.--For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.

      I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.--I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.--I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.--No man cometh unto the Father, but by me.--He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.--For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

DECEMBER 24

MORNING

If ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

N OW the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, . . . and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

      The grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity.




ROM. 8. 13. Ga. 5. 19, 21-25. Tit. 2. 11-14.

EVENING

Then said the princes of the Philistines, What do these Hebrews here?

I F ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, . . . or as a busybody in other men's matters.

      Let not . . . your good be evil spoken of.--Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles.

      Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? Ye are the temple of the living God. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing.

      Ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.

DECEMBER 26

MORNING

Be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord.

Y E know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.--As ye have . . . received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.--He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.--That on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

      By faith ye stand.

      I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

      He that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

EVENING

He is able . . . to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him.

I AM the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.--Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

      My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.--He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.--Is any thing too hard for the LORD?

      Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

DECEMBER 27

MORNING

We look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

H ERE have we no continuing city.--Ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.

      Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

      Now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations.--There the wicked cease from troubling; and there the weary be at rest.

      We that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened.--God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

      The sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.--Our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.

EVENING

He is our peace.

G OD was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; for he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.--Having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; . . . And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight.--Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.--Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace.

      Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

DECEMBER 28

MORNING

Thy sins be forgiven thee.

I WILL forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.--Who can forgive sins but God only?

      I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.--Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity.--Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity.

      God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.--The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

      As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.--Sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.--Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

EVENING

We would see Jesus.

O LORD, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee.

      The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.

      Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.--I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.--Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.

      Let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.

      Now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face.--Having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better.

      Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

DECEMBER 29

MORNING

Understanding what the will of the Lord is.

T HIS is the will of God, even your sanctification.--Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee.--This is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.--We know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

      We . . . do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.--The God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe.

EVENING

Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.

E NOCH walked with God.--Can two walk together, except they be agreed?--It is good for me to draw near to God.

      The LORD is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you. When they in their trouble did turn unto the LORD God of Israel, and sought him, he was found of them.

      For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

      Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, . . . and having an high priest over the house of God; let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith.

DECEMBER 30

MORNING

Blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Y OU, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: if ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel.--That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.

      Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.--Sincere and without offence till the day of Christ.

      Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever.

1 COR. 1. 8. Col. 1. 21-23.--Phi. 2. 15.
2 Pe. 3. 14.--Phi. 1. 10. Jude 24, 25.

EVENING

He will keep the feet of his saints.

I F we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.--He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit.

      I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths. When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble. Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

      The Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

DECEMBER 31

MORNING

The LORD thy God bare thee, as a man doth bear his son, in all the way that ye went, until ye came into this place.

I BARE you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.--In his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.--As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: so the LORD alone did lead him.

      Even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.--This God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.

      Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee.--Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on.--For your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

      Hitherto hath the LORD helped us.

De. 32. 11, 12. Is. 46. 4.--Ps. 48. 14.
Ps. 55. 22.--Mat. 6. 25, 32. 1 Sa. 7. 12.

EVENING

There remaineth yet very much land to be possessed.

N OT as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

      Be ye therefore perfect.--Giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

      I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment.

      Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit.

      There remaineth . . . a rest to the people of God.--Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

I don't really know if he is or not Sis, I started posting these when he stopped posting them. I may try to find some new devotions, but I will continue to post on the Christian Quotes thread.

JANUARY 7

MORNING

      Think upon me, my God, for good.

T HUS saith the LORD; I remember thee, the kindness of thy youth, the love of thy espousals, when thou wentest after me in the wilderness.--I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant.--I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you. . . . For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

      As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.--I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause: which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number.--Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

NEH. 5. 19. Je. 2. 2.--Eze. 16. 60.--
Je. 29. 10, 11. Is. 55. 9.--Job 5. 8, 9.--
Ps. 40. 5.

EVENING

 I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

T HERE failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken to the house of Israel; all came to pass.--God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoke, and shall he not make it good?

      The LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him.--He will ever be mindful of his covenant.

      Can a woman forget her suckling child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet I will not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands.

      The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.

JANUARY 8

MORNING

They that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

T HE name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.--I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.

      I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.--For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.--The LORD will not forsake his people for his great name's sake: because it hath pleased the LORD to make you his people.--Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us.

      Be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

PSA. 9. 10. Pr. 18. 10.--Is. 12. 2. Ps. 37. 25.--
Ps. 37. 28.--1 Sa. 12. 22.--2 Co. 1. 10.
He. 13. 5, 6.

EVENING

They are without fault before the throne of God.


T HE iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve.--Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

      He hath made us accepted in the beloved.--To present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight.

      Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

JANUARY 9

MORNING

Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth.

J EHOVAH Nissi: that is, The LORD my banner.--When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.

      We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners.--The LORD hath brought forth our righteousness: come, and let us declare in Zion the work of the LORD our God.--We are more than conquerors through him that loved us.--Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.--The captain of our salvation.

      My brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.--Valiant for the truth.--Fight the LORD's battles.--Be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the LORD, and work: . . . fear ye not.--Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.--Yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

EVENING


One thing is needful.


T HERE be many that say, Who will show us any good? LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us. Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time when their corn and their wine increased.

      As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God.--O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is.

      I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. Lord, evermore give us this bread.--Mary . . . sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.--One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

JANUARY 10

MORNING

I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

C HRIST loved the church, and gave himself for it; that he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.--Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.

      The peace of God . . . passeth all understanding.--Let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body.

      Our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.--Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 THES. 5. 23. Ep. 5. 25, 27.--Col. 1. 28.
Phi. 4. 7. Col. 3. 15. 2 Th. 2. 16, 17.--
1 Co. 1. 8.

EVENING

Will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth?


L ET them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.--I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by my glory. And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their God.

      Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell among them.

      Ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.--Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you.--Ye . . . are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

      The heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

JANUARY 11

MORNING

Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion.

T O us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.--All men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.--By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.--Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.

      I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; and cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be to our God for ever and ever. Amen.

PSA. 65. 1. 1 Co. 8. 6.--John 5. 23.--
He. 13. 15.--Ps. 50. 23. Re. 7. 9, 10, 12.

EVENING

Who redeemeth thy life from destruction.

T HEIR Redeemer is strong; the LORD of hosts is his name.--I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction.

      As the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

      He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

      For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.--When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired by all them that believe.

JANUARY 12

MORNING

The only wise God our Saviour.


C HRIST Jesus, who from God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.--Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection? It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know?

      We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory.--The mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: to the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church, the manifold wisdom of God.

      If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.--The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

JUDE 25. 1 Co. 1. 30.--Job 11. 7, 8.
1 Co. 2. 7.--Ep. 3. 9, 10. Ja. 1. 5.--Ja. 3. 17.

EVENING

When shall I arise, and the night be

gone?

W ATCHMAN, what of the night? The watchman said, The morning cometh.

      Yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.--He shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds.

      I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you.

      Let all thy enemies perish, O LORD: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might.--Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

      There shall be no night there.

JANUARY 13

MORNING

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,

whose mind is stayed on thee.

C AST thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never allow the righteous to be moved.--I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.

      Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?--Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.--In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.

      The effect of righteousness [shall be] quietness and assurance for ever.--Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.--Peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come.

EVENING

Let not the sun go down upon your wrath.


I F thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother . . . . Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.--When ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

      Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.--Be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

JANUARY 14

MORNING

My Father is greater than I.


W HEN ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven.--My Father, and your Father; . . . my God, and your God.

      As the Father gave me commandment, even so I do.--The words that I speak unto you I speak not from myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

      The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.--Thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

      Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me?--I and my Father are one.--As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

EVENING

[The woman's seed] shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

H IS visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men.--He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

      This is your hour, and the power of darkness.--Thou couldest have no power against me, except it were given thee from above.

      The Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.--He cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.

      All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.--In my name shall they cast out devils.

      The God of peace shall soon bruise Satan under your feet shortly.

JANUARY 15

MORNING

My soul cleaveth to the dust: quicken

thou me according to thy word.

I F ye . . . be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For . . . your life is hid with Christ in God.--Our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working by which he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

      The flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.--Brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live according to the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.--Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.



PSA. 119. 25. Col. 3. 1-3.--Phi. 3. 20, 21.
Ga. 5. 17.--Ro. 8. 12, 13.--1 Pe. 2. 11.

EVENING

The measure of faith.


H IM that is weak in the faith.--Strong in faith, giving glory to God.

      O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?--Great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt.

      Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. . . . According to your faith be it unto you.

      Lord, increase our faith.--Building up yourselves on your most holy faith.--Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith.--He who stablisheth us with you in Christ, . . . is God.--The God of all grace . . . after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

      We . . . that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.--Let us not . . . judge one another: . . . but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.

JANUARY 16

MORNING

It pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell.

T HE Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.--God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.--Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come.--By him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him.

      Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.--And ye are complete in him, who is the head of all principality and power.--Of his fulness have we all received.

Ep. 1. 21.--Col. 1. 16. Ro. 14. 9.--
Col. 2. 10.--John 1. 16.

EVENING

Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter.

H OLY men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.--That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

      Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.--He that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he speaketh true, that ye may believe.

      We have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.--That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

JANUARY 17

MORNING

Thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption.

G OD sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

      Who is a God like thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.--O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.--When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.--I waited patiently for the LORD. He brought me up . . . out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock.

Ps. 30. 2, 3.--Jonah 2. 7.--Ps. 40. 1, 2.

EVENING

The things which are.

N OW we see through a glass, darkly.--Now we see not yet all things put under him.

      We have . . . a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.--Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light to my path.

      Beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; how that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.--The Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of demons.

      Little children, it is the last time.--The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

JANUARY 18

MORNING

Him that was to come.

J ESUS . . . made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, . . . that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.--One died for all.--As by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

      The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. . . . That was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.--God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him.--God hath in these last days spoken to us by his Son, . . . the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person.--Thou hast given him power over all flesh.

      The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

He. 1. 1-3.--John 17. 2. 1 Co. 15. 47, 48.

EVENING

The things which shall be after this.

I T is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit.--The Spirit of truth . . . will shew you things to come.

      Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

      I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them who are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also who sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

JANUARY 19

MORNING

Serving the Lord with all humility of

mind.

W HOSOEVER will be great among you, let him be your minister; and whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

      If a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.--I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man . . . not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.--When ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.

      Our rejoicing is this, . . . that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world.--We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not from us.

Ro. 12. 3.--Lu. 17. 10. 2 Co. 1. 12.--
2 Co. 4. 7.

EVENING

We have turned every one to his own

way.

N OAH . . . planted a vineyard: and he drank of the wine, and was drunken.--Abram . . . said unto Sarai his wife, . . . Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake.--Isaac said unto Jacob, . . . Art thou my very son Esau? And he said, I am.--Moses . . . spoke unadvisedly with his lips.--The men took of their provisions, and asked not counsel at the mouth of the LORD. And Joshua made peace with them.--David did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.

      These all . . . obtained a good report through faith.--Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Jesus Christ.--The LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

      Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord GOD, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways.

JANUARY 20

MORNING

His name shall be called Wonderful.

T HE Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.--Thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

      They shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.--JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

      All men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father.--God . . . hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.--Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: and hath put all things under his feet.--He had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself . . . KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

      Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out.--What is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?

Job 37. 23.--Pr. 30. 4.

EVENING

For the LORD's portion is his people.

Y E are Christ's; and Christ is God's.--I am my beloved's, and his desire is toward me.--I am his.--The Son of God . . . loved me, and gave himself for me.

      Ye are not your own.  . . Ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.--The LORD hath taken you, and brought you out of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance, as ye are this day.

      Ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.--Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end.--A spiritual house, an holy priesthood.

      They shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels.--All mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.--The glory of his inheritance in the saints.

JANUARY 21

MORNING

Every branch that beareth fruit, he

purgeth it.

H E is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap: and he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the LORD an offering in righteousness.

      We glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: and hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given to us.--If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the Father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness to them which are exercised by it. Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees.



JOHN 15. 2. Mal. 3. 2, 3. Ro. 5. 3-5.--
He. 12. 7, 8, 11, 12.

EVENING

Now we call the proud happy.

T HUS saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

      Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.--Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

      These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: a proud look, etc.--Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD.

      Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

      Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.--Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

JANUARY 22

MORNING

This God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.

O LORD, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.--The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup.

      He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.--Thou hast holden me by my right hand. Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire besides thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.--Our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.--The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

Ps. 23. 3, 4.--Ps. 73. 23-26.--Ps. 33. 21.--
Ps. 138. 8.

EVENING

In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.

W HEN my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

      O LORD, I am oppressed; undertake for me.--Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee.

      I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.--If any of you lacketh wisdom, let him ask of God, . . . and it shall be given him.

      Who is sufficient for these things?--I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing.--My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.

      Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. . . . Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.

      My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; . . . when I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
