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.

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.

AUGUST 14

MORNING

The joy of the LORD is your strength.

S ING, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the LORD hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted.--Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.--The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.--My soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

      I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God.--We . . . joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.--I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.


NEH. 8. 10. Is. 49. 13.--Is. 12. 2.--Ps. 28. 7.--
Is. 61. 10. Ro. 15. 17. Ro. 5. 11.--
Hab. 3. 18.

EVENING

He hath made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things, and

sure.

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.

      Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: according as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will.

      We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son. 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.

AUGUST 15

MORNING

The God of peace make you perfect in every good work to do his will.

B E perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

      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.--Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

      Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.--Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.--Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

      Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God.

Phi. 1. 11. 2 Co. 3. 5.

EVENING

I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her.

C OME out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.--Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

      Jesus, . . . that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.

      Jesus said, . . . Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while.--The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

AUGUST 16

MORNING

The house that is to be builded for the LORD must be exceeding magnifical.

Y E . . . as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house.--Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth 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.--Your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.--What agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for 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.--Ye . . . are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: in whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

1 CHRON. 22. 5. 1 Pe. 2. 5.--1 Co. 3. 16, 17.--
1 Co. 6. 19, 20.--2 Co. 6. 16.--
Ep. 2. 19-22.

EVENING

He is before all things.

T HE Amen, . . . the beginning of the creation of God.--The beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the pre-eminence.

      The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: when he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: when he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment. I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him.--Yea, before the day was I am he.

      The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.--The author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

AUGUST 17

MORNING

Pray one for another, that ye may be

healed.

A RAHAM answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes: peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.

      Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.--Pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.

      I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word.--Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

      The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

JAMES 5. 16. Ge. 18. 27, 28. Lu. 23. 34.--
Mat. 5. 44. John 17. 9, 20.--Ga. 6. 2.
Ja. 5. 16, 17.

EVENING

As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

S O teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.--What shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

      Surely the people is grass. The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.--The world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

      Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.--Use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.--Let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

AUGUST 18

MORNING

What God is there in heaven or in earth, that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might?

W HO in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD? O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee?--Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.--For thy word's sake, and according to thine own heart, hast thou done all these great things, to make thy servant know them. Wherefore thou art great, O LORD God: for there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

      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 secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children.

DEUT. 3. 24. Ps. 89. 6, 8.--Ps. 86. 8.--
2 Sa. 7. 21, 22. 1 Co. 2. 9, 10.--De. 29. 29.

EVENING

He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

L ET not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: but let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD.

      I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ.--I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth.--I have . . . whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God.

      Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.--My heart rejoiceth in the LORD. . . . I rejoice in thy salvation.

      Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.

AUGUST 19

MORNING

As he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation.

Y E know how we exhorted . . . and charged every one of you, . . . that ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.--Ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.

      Ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.--Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

      Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.--Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

1 PET. 1. 15. 1 Th. 2. 11, 12.--1 Pe. 2. 9.
Ep. 5. 8-11.--Phi. 1. 11. Mat. 5. 16.--
1 Co. 10. 31.

EVENING

Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.

A NEW heart . . . 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. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes. Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them.

      If two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

      Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

ISA. 45. 11. Eze. 36. 26, 27, 37.
Mat. 18. 19, 20. Mar. 11. 22, 23.

AUGUST 20

MORNING

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent.

T HE Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.--Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

      His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

      God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: that by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us.

      The faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations.--All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.--Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: . . . which keepeth truth for ever.

Ps. 91. 4. He. 6. 17, 18. De. 7. 9.--
Ps. 25. 10.--Ps. 146. 5, 6.

EVENING

If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.

H E giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.--My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.--He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him.--The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee.

      I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

      Every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, . . . who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; so also Christ, . . . though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; and being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him.--Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows.

AUGUST 21

MORNING

Thou art my portion, O LORD.

A LL things are yours; . . . and ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.--Our Saviour Jesus Christ . . . gave himself for us.--God gave him to be the head over all things to the church.--Christ 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.

      My soul shall make her boast in the LORD.--I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness.

      Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.--O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord. The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.

PSA. 119. 57. 1 Co. 3. 21, 23.--Tit. 2. 13, 14.--

Is. 61. 10. Ps. 73. 25, 26.--Ps. 16. 2, 5, 6.

EVENING

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

H E that trusteth in his own heart is a fool.

      Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.--Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.

      If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

      I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

AUGUST 22

MORNING

None of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.

W HETHER we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.--Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth.--Ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

      Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better.

      I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.




ROM. 14. 7. Ro. 14. 8. 1 Co. 10. 24.--
1 Co. 6. 20. Phi. 1. 20-23. Ga. 2. 19, 20.

EVENING

God gave Solomon . . . largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore.

B EHOLD, a greater than Solomon is here.--The Prince of Peace.

      Scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.--Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.--The love of Christ, which passeth knowledge.

      Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.--In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.--The unsearchable riches of Christ.--Of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.

AUGUST 23

MORNING

I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.

W E are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.--God . . . hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.--Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

      God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

      Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

Ps. 139. 16. John 3. 16. 1 John 4. 10.

EVENING

I have made, and I will bear.

T HUS saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee.--Even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you.

      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.--He bare them, and carried them all the days of old.

      Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.--For I am persuaded, that neither . . . height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

      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.

AUGUST 24

MORNING

I know their sorrows.

A MAN of sorrows, and acquainted with grief.--Touched with the feeling of our infirmities.

      Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.--Jesus, . . . being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well.

      When Jesus . . . saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled. Jesus wept.--For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

      He hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth; to hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death.--He knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.--When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path.

      He that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.--In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them.

Ps. 102. 19, 20.--Job 23. 10.--Ps. 142.3.
Zec. 2. 8.--Is. 63. 9.

EVENING

I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day.

T HE soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.--He that watereth shall be watered also himself.

      My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.--The kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.

      Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season.--Occupy till I come.

      I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

John 4. 34-36.--Mat. 20. 1, 2. 2 Ti. 4. 2.--

AUGUST 25

MORNING

Look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.

B EHOLD, I was shapen in iniquity.--None eye pitied thee, . . . but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the loathing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born. And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee, . . . Live.

      He brought me up . . . out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God.

      When we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.--God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ.

ISA. 51. 1. Ps. 51. 5.--Eze. 16. 5, 6.
Ps. 40. 2, 3. Ro. 5. 6-8.--Ep. 2. 4, 5.

EVENING

I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God.

I WILL bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.--The LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.--Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

      Is any merry? let him sing psalms.--Be filled with the Spirit; speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; giving thanks always for all things.--Singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

      At midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.--Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.


ISA. 61. 10. Ps 34. 1-3.--Ps. 84. 11, 12.--

AUGUST 26

MORNING

Thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon it, like the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD.

H OLINESS, without which no man shall see the Lord.--God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.--But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags.--I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified.

      This is the law of the house: Upon the top of the mountain the whole limit thereof round about shall be most holy.--Holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.

      For their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.--Seeing . . . that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us . . . come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

John 17. 19.--He. 4. 14, 16.

EVENING

My cup runneth over.

O TASTE and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.--His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

      The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.--Whether . . . the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours.--Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.

      I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.--Godliness with contentment is great gain.--My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

AUGUST 27

MORNING

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

B Y the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer. Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.--When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee. For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light.--Thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

      I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.--We have also a . . . sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place.--Now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.--They need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

Is. 30. 21. John 8. 12.--2 Pe. 1. 19.--
1 Co. 13. 12.--Re. 22. 5.

EVENING

What meanest thou, O sleeper? arise.

T HIS is not your rest: . . . it is polluted, it shall destroy you.--Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.--If riches increase, set not your heart upon them.--Set your heart and your soul to seek . . . your God: arise therefore.

      Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.--Take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

      While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.--Yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.--Now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.--Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.

AUGUST 28

MORNING

The accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

T HEY overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.--Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

      Having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly.--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.--In all these things we are more than conquerors, through him that loved us.--Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. And take . . . the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.--But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Col. 2. 15.--He. 2. 14, 15.--Ro. 8. 37.--
Ep. 6. 11, 17. 1 Co. 15. 57.

EVENING

The tree of life.

G OD hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.--He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.--As the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. As the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.

      To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.--In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

      Happy is the man that findeth wisdom. Length of days is in her right hand. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.--Christ Jesus . . . is made unto us wisdom.

AUGUST 29

MORNING

Whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy is he.

A BRAHAM staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; and being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.--The children of Judah prevailed, because they relied upon the LORD God of their fathers.

      God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.--It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.--The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.

      O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.

Ps. 46. 1, 2.--Ps. 118. 8, 9.--Ps. 37. 23, 24.
Ps. 34. 8, 9.

EVENING

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

T HOU shalt not be afraid for the terror by night. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust.--Even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings.--He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.

      I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings.--The darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

      He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?--Ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.--I will trust, and not be afraid.

AUGUST 30

MORNING

The king held out . . . the golden sceptre

that was in his hand. So Esther
drew near, and touched the top of
the sceptre.

I T shall come to pass, when he crieth unto me, that I will hear; for I am gracious.

      We have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. We love him, because he first loved us.

      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.--For through him we . . . have access by one Spirit unto the Father.--We have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.--Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

EST. 5. 2. Ex. 22. 27. 1 John 4. 16-19.
He. 10. 22.--Ep. 2. 18.--Ep. 3. 12.--
He. 4. 16.

EVENING

They said, . . . It is manna: for they wist

not what it was.

W ITHOUT controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh.--The bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

      Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. My flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

      The children of Israel . . . gathered, some more, some less. He that gathered little had no lack. They gathered it every morning, every man according to his eating.

      Take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? . . . Your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

AUGUST 31

MORNING

The free gift is of many offences unto justification.

T HOUGH your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.--I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.--I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.

      God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.--Not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.--And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

EVENING

Occupy till I come.

T HE Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.--Unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.

      I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.--Wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?--Leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps.

      Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.--Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it.--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.

SEPTEMBER 1

MORNING

The fruit of the Spirit is . . . meekness.

T HE meek . . . shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.--Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.--The ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, . . . is in the sight of God of great price.--Charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up.

      Follow after . . . meekness.--Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart.--He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.--Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; . . . but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously.

EVENING

If any man will come after me, let himdeny himself, and take up his cross

daily, and follow me.

B Y honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report.--All that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.--The offence of the cross.

      If I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

      If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; . . . but let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters. Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

      Unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake.--If one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.--If we suffer, we shall also reign with him.

SEPTEMBER 2

MORNING

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage,and he shall strengthen thine heart.

H AST thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.--Fear 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.--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.

      The trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.--Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

EVENING

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.

T HE wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest. There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.

      Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.--Rest in the LORD.--He that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works.

      Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace.--That we . . . be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; but speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.

      I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.

SEPTEMBER 3

MORNING

Neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters.

T HE fear of the LORD is to hate evil.--Abhor that which is evil.--Abstain from all appearance of evil.--Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled.

      If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.

      Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.--Let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

      Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.--Such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners.--In him is no sin.

1 Co. 5. 6-8.--1 Co. 11. 28. 2 Ti. 2. 19.--
He. 7. 26.--1 John 3. 5.

EVENING

The serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: . . . your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

I FEAR, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

      My brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.--Take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.--Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

SEPTEMBER 4

MORNING

Sit still, my daughter.

T AKE heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither be fainthearted.--Be still, and know that I am God.--Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?--The loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.

      Mary, . . . sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.--Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.--In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.--Commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.

      Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

      He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD. His heart is established.

      He that believeth shall not make haste.

Is. 30. 15.--Ps. 4. 4. Ps. 37. 7. Ps. 112. 7, 8.
Is. 28. 16.

EVENING

What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.

T HOU shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.

      When I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; . . . yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine.--Whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth.

      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.--Our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen.

SEPTEMBER 5

MORNING

As the body is one, and hath many

members, . . . so also is Christ.

H E is the head of the body, the church.--The head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.--We are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

      A body hast thou prepared me.--Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

      Thine they were, and thou gavest them me.--He hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world.--Whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son.

      Grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: from whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, . . . maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

John 17. 6.--Ep. 1. 4.--Ro. 8. 29.

EVENING

The fountain of living waters.

H OW 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.

      Thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty.--Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.--This spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive.

      Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters.--The Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

SEPTEMBER 6

MORNING

Let us lift up our heart with our hands

unto God in the heavens.

W HO is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high, who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!--Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.--I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land. Hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit. Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.

      Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.--Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.

      Whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do.

Ps. 143. 6-8. Ps. 63. 3, 4.--Ps. 86. 4, 5.
John 14. 13.

EVENING

Watchman, what of the night?

I T is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. 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.

      Learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: so likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.--Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

      I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.

      He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

      Watch, . . . for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

SEPTEMBER 7

MORNING

Rejoicing in hope.

T HE hope which is laid up for you in heaven.--If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.--We must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.--Whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.--No man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.

      Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.--The God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.--Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.--Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.--By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

EVENING

I am poor and needy; yet the Lord

thinketh upon me.

I KNOW the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil.--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.

      How precious . . . are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.--O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.--Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward.

      Not many mighty, not many noble, are called.--Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom?--Having nothing, and yet possessing all things.--The unsearchable riches of Christ.

SEPTEMBER 8

MORNING

Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.

T HE LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.--That which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.--The LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.--Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For 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.

      What is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?--What things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.

      Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts.--Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing.

EVENING

Christ the firstfruits.

E XCEPT a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.--If the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.--Now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.--If we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection.--The Lord Jesus Christ . . . shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

      The firstborn from the dead.--If the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

      I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.

SEPTEMBER 9

MORNING

He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.

T HOU sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

      Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.--When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.--I am the LORD thy God, . . . open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.

      Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.--I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

Is. 41. 17.--Ps. 81. 10. Is. 55. 2.--John 6. 35.

EVENING

My feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.

W HEN I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.

      The Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not.

      A just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again.--Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.

      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 shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee.

      If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.--Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

SEPTEMBER 10

MORNING

I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them.

A NEW heart . . . will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you.--Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way. The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way. All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.

      That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

      I . . . beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, with all lowliness and meekness, . . . endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.



JER. 32. 39. Eze. 36. 26.--Ps. 25. 8-10.
John 17. 21. Ep. 4. 1-6.

EVENING

They that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength. ( Or, change strength.)

W HEN I am weak, then am I strong.--My God shall be my strength.--He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.--Let him take hold of my strength.

      Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee.--The arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob.

      I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.

      Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.--Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me. Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.

SEPTEMBER 11

MORNING

Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.

T HOU shalt not follow a multitude to do evil.

      Know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

      What fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?--Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. The world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

      In time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.--Ye have not so learned Christ; if so be that ye have heard him, . . . as the truth is in Jesus.

EVENING

Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.

I N the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground.--We commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.--Study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands.

      Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.--The night cometh, when no man can work.

      Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.--Always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

      There remaineth . . . a rest to the people of God.--Unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.--This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing.

SEPTEMBER 12

MORNING

I have seen his ways, and will heal him.

I AM the LORD that healeth thee.

      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.--Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.--All things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

      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.--He is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.--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.--He hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted.--Thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

The LORD taketh my part.

T HE LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee; send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion. We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.

      When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.--There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

      If God be for us, who can be against us?--The LORD is on my side; I will not fear.

      Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us . . . and he will deliver us.

SEPTEMBER 13

MORNING

If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.

M Y soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out 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; to see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

      Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.--The Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.--Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.--My blood is drink indeed.

      Eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved.

Is. 55. 1.--Re. 22. 17.--John 4. 14.--
John 6. 55. Ca. 5. 1.

EVENING

Ye are the salt of the earth.

T HAT which is not corruptible.--Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.--He that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.--The children of God, being the children of the resurrection.--The uncorruptible God.

      If any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.--It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption.

      Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.--Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

SEPTEMBER 14

MORNING

I, even I, am he that comforteth you.

B LESSED be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.--Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.--As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you.--Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

      Thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.

      Another Comforter . . . even the Spirit of truth.--The Spirit . . . helpeth our infirmities.

      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.

John 14. 16, 17.--Ro. 8. 26. Re. 21. 4.

EVENING

Ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son.

H E received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.--Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God.

      Be ye . . . followers of God, as dear children.--If children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ.

      The brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person.--Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

      Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame.--These things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.--As the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.

SEPTEMBER 15

MORNING

Sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

W HAT then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.--My brethren, ye . . . are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.--Being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ.--The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

      The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.--Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.--If the Son . . . shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

      Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

EVENING

A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

N O man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

      He that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.--Let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.--What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

      Be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; but speaking the truth in love, . . . grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.

      Abide in me.--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.

SEPTEMBER 16

MORNING

The LORD pondereth the hearts.

T HE LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.--The LORD will shew who are his, and who is holy.--Thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

      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.--There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear.

      Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.--When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path.--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.

      The foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

EVENING

Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

N O man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto. For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation. In me ye . . . have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

      I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.--The night is far spent, the day is at hand.--He shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain.

      He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces.--There shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.--We which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

SEPTEMBER 17

MORNING

A bruised reed shall he not break.

T HE sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.--He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.--For thus 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. For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made.

      I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick.--Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; and make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.--Behold, your God . . . will come and save you.

EVENING

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

W HEN the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: . . . he saith . . . Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

      For the ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meat.--I believed, and therefore have I spoken.--I know whom I have believed.--I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.

      The goodness of God.--He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

      As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: if so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

      Let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy.

MORNING

Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

T HEN opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures.--It is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.--I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.--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.--How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand.--O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

I F thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.--If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. This spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive.

      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.--If ye, . . . being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?--Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find.

      Because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.--Ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

SEPTEMBER 19

MORNING

The God of all grace.

I WILL proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious.--He is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.--Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in 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, through the forbearance of God.--Grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

      By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.--Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.--Unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.--As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.--He giveth more grace.

      Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever.

EVENING

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD.

A S the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.

      Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens. Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.--Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.

      O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.--Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.--Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.

MORNING

Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth under- standing.

W HOSO findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.

      Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, . . . but let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD.--The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.

      What things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ.--In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.--Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.

      Christ Jesus, . . . is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.

      He that winneth souls is wise.

EVENING

Poor, yet making many rich.

Y E know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.--Of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.--My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.--God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.

      Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?--Not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: but God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.

      We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

SEPTEMBER 21

MORNING

We know that all things work together for good to them that love God.

S URELY the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.--Ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good.

      All things are yours; whether . . . the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; and ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.--All things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.

      My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

EVENING

The communion of the Holy Ghost, be

with you all.

I WILL pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.--He shall not speak of himself. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

      The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

      He that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

      Grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.--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.

MORNING

My meditation of him shall be sweet: I

will be glad in the LORD.

A S the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.--For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD?

      My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand.--One pearl of great price.--The prince of the kings of the earth.

      His head is as the most fine gold, his locks are bushy, and black as a raven.--The head over all things.--He is the head of the body, the church.

      His cheeks are as a bed of spices, as sweet flowers.--He could not be hid.

      His lips like lilies, dropping sweet smelling myrrh.--Never man spake like this man.

      His countenance is as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars.--Make thy face to shine upon thy servant.--LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.

EVENING

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

N OW is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.

      I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.--He . . . became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.--In the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered.

      Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?--Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

MORNING

Our God hath not forsaken us.

B ELOVED, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you.--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.

      The LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

      The LORD will not forsake his people for his great name's sake: because it hath pleased the LORD to make you his people.--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.--Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God.

      Shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily.

De. 13. 3. 1 Sa. 12. 22.--Is. 49. 15.--
Ps. 146. 5. Lu. 18. 7, 8.

EVENING

He that overcometh shall inherit all things.

I F in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.--Now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.--An inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you.

      All things are yours; . . . the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours.--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.

      Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.--Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.

SEPTEMBER 24

MORNING

It is good for me to draw near to God.

L ORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.--A day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.--Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.

      The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.--Therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.

      Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us; . . . let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience.

Ps. 65. 4. La. 3. 25.--Is. 30. 18.
He. 10. 19, 20, 22.

EVENING

Ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

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 art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips.--All bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth.

      Ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.--He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself.--We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen.

      O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.--I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.

      He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.--Unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.--As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

SEPTEMBER 25

MORNING

Let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

N OW for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.--We glory in tribulations: . . . knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope.

      It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.--Ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance. Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.--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.

La. 3. 26.--He. 10. 34-36.--2 Th. 2. 16, 17.

EVENING

God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ.

J UDGE nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.--The Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: because he is the Son of man.--The Son of God . . . hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire.

      They say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?--These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.--There is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.

      Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.--Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

Today's Devotion (Tuesday, Feb 27)

Jonathan Bagster's Daily Light on the Daily Path (Daily)

Morning:

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

He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me,
hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but
hath passed from death to life.--I through the law am dead to
the law, that I may live to God. I am crucified with Christ:
nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the
life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the
Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Because I live, ye shall live also.--I give to them eternal
life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any pluck them
out of my hand. My Father, who gave [them to] me, is greater
than all; and none is able to pluck [them] out of my Father's
hand. I and [my] Father are one.

If ye then be raised with Christ, seek those things which are
above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.--For ye
are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

Ro 6:11 Joh 5:24 Ga 2:19,20 Joh 14:19 10:28-30 Col 3:1,3


Evening:

God . . . giveth . . . liberally, and upbraideth not.

Woman, where are those thy accusers? hath no man condemned
thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said to her, Neither do
I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

The grace of God, and the gift by grace, [which is] by one
man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded to many. . . . The free gift
[is] of many offences to justification.

God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love with which he
loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath made us alive
together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) and hath raised
[us] up together, and made [us] sit together in heavenly
[places] in Christ Jesus: that in the ages to come he might show
the exceeding riches of his grace in [his] kindness toward us
through Christ Jesus.

He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us
all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Jas 1:5 Joh 8:10,11 Ro 5:15,16 Eph 2:4-7 Ro 8:32

Today's Devotion (Wednesday, Feb 28)

Jonathan Bagster's Daily Light on the Daily Path (Daily)

Morning:

God so loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting life.

God . . . hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and
hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, that
God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, not imputing
their trespasses to them; and hath committed to us the word of
reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though
God did beseech [you] by us: we pray [you] in Christ's stead, be
ye reconciled to God. 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.--God is love. In this was revealed the love of God toward
us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world,
that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we
loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son [to be] the
propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought
also to love one another.

Joh 3:16 2Co 5:18-21 1Jo 4:8-11


Evening:

The spirit of man [is] the lamp of the LORD.

He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone
at her. . . . And they who heard [it], being convicted by [their
own] conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest,
[even] to the last.

Who told thee that thou [wast] naked? Hast thou eaten of the
tree, of which I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

To him that knoweth to do good, and doeth [it] not, to him it
is sin.--If our heart condemneth us, God is greater than our
heart, and knoweth all things. Beloved, if our heart doth not
condemn us, [then] have we confidence toward God.

All things indeed [are] pure; but [it is] evil for that man
who eateth with offence. . . . Happy [is] he that condemneth not
himself in what he approveth.

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

Today's Devotion (Thursday, Mar 01)

Jonathan Bagster's Daily Light on the Daily Path (Daily)

Morning:

The fruit of the Spirit is love.

God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God,
and God in him.--The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by
the Holy Spirit which is given to us.--To you . . . who believe
[he is] precious.--We love him, because he first loved us.--The
love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if
one died for all, then were all dead: and [that] he died for
all, that they who live should not henceforth live to
themselves, but to him who died for them, and rose again.

Ye yourselves are taught by God to love one another.--This is
my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.--
Above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for
charity shall cover a multitude of sins.--Walk in love, as
Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an
offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

Ga 5:22 1Jo 4:16 Ro 5:5 1Pe 2:7 1Jo 4:19 2Co 5:14,15 1Th 4:9
Joh 15:12 1Pe 4:8 Eph 5:2


Evening:

Jehovahnissi: The LORD my banner.

If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?--The LORD [is]
on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee.

The LORD [is] my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
the LORD [is] the strength of my life; of whom shall I be
afraid?--Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall
not fear: though war should rise against me, in this [will] I
[be] confident.

Behold, God himself [is] with us for [our] captain.--The LORD
of hosts [is] with us; the God of Jacob [is] our refuge.

These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall
overcome them.

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
--He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall
have them in derision.--Take counsel together, and it shall come
to nought; speak the word, and it shall not stand: for God [is]
with us.

Today's Devotion (Friday, Mar 02)

Jonathan Bagster's Daily Light on the Daily Path (Daily)

Morning:

God hath caused me to be fruitful
in the land of my affliction.

Blessed [be] God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of mercies, and the God of all consolation; who
comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to
comfort them who are in any trouble, by the consolation with
which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as the sufferings
of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by
Christ.

Now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through
various temptations: that the trial of your faith, being much
more precious than of gold that perisheth, though tried with
fire, might be found to praise and honour and glory at the
appearing of Jesus Christ.--The Lord stood with me, and
strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known,
and [that] all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out
of the mouth of the lion.

Let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the
keeping of their souls [to him] in well doing, as to a faithful
Creator.

Ge 41:52 2Co 1:3-5 1Pe 1:6,7 2Ti 4:17 1Pe 4:19


Evening:

There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

There the wicked cease [from] troubling; and there the weary
be at rest. [There] the prisoners rest together; they hear not
the voice of the oppressor.

Blessed [are] the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth:
. . . they . . . rest from their labours; and their works do
follow them.

Our friend Lazarus sleepeth. . . . Jesus spake of his death:
but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.

We that are in [this] tabernacle do groan, being burdened.--
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. For we are saved by hope:
but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why
doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, [then]
do we with patience wait for [it].

Today's Devotion (Saturday, Mar 03)

Jonathan Bagster's Daily Light on the Daily Path (Daily)

Morning:

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not
unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways
acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Trust in him at all times; [ye] people, pour out your heart
before him: God [is] a refuge for us.

I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou
shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. Be ye not as the
horse, [or] as the mule, [which] have no understanding: whose
mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near
unto thee. Many sorrows [shall be] to the wicked: but he that
trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.--Thine ears
shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This [is] the way, walk
ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to
the left.

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? so shall we be separated, I and thy people,
from all the people that [are] upon the face of the earth.

Pr 3:5,6 Ps 62:8 32:8-10 Isa 30:21 Ex 33:15,16


Evening:

The prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Thou shalt have treasure in heaven: . . . come [and] follow
me.--I [am] . . . thy exceeding great reward.

Well done, [thou] good and faithful servant: thou hast been
faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many
things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.--They shall reign
for ever and ever.

Ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.-- The
crown of life.--A crown of righteousness.-- An incorruptible
[crown].

Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be
with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou
hast given me.--So shall we ever be with the Lord.

I reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not
worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed
in us.
