We have been "bought with a price" to be "ambassadors for Christ" and our "salvation is nearer to us than when we believed" so let us "cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God" "so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming."  (1Cor 6:20, 2Cor 5:20, Ro 13:11, 2Cor 7:1, 1Jn 2:28, All) See Disclaimer

We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us.

 

GOD, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus, in order that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

      God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.--He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?--The LORD is good to all, and His mercies are over all His works.
      We love, because He first loved us. Blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord.

1Jn 4.16. Ep. 2.4, 5, 6, 7. Jn 3.16.--
Ro. 8.32.--Ps. 145.9. 1Jn 4.19.
Lk 1.45.

Do not be haughty in mind,
but associate with the lowly.

 

MY brethren, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with an attitude of personal favoritism.-- Did not God choose the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him?

     Let no one seek his own good, but that of his neighbor --I we have food and covering, with these we shall be content. But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction.

      God hath chosen chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong,
and the base things of the world and the despised, God has chosen, the things that are not, that He might nullify the things that are, that no man should boast before God.

      O LORD, my heart is not proud, nor my eyes haughty

OUR
DAILY WALK

July 5

GOD'S BOUNTIFUL PROVISION

"They did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full."-- Mat 14:20.

WHEN GOD is Host, there is enough for all! Probably the disciples at first doled out the supplies with great care, but as they discovered that group after group were provided for, their faith increased, and they became lavish in their distribution. Every appetite could enjoy bread and fish, and there was plenty of it. God's supplies are as great as the demand; nay, greater, for He is able to make all grace abound toward each soul of man.

But though there was prolific provision, there was wise administration, and prudent husbanding of what was left. "Gather up the fragments," said the Master (Joh 6:12). It is marvellous to notice in the world of nature, how careful the Creator is that what might seem to be refuse should be wrought into new texture. Even the body, when it has fulfilled its functions, returns to mother earth, so that its particles may pass into the harvests of coming years. There is no waste in God's great world. Let there be no waste in our lives!

There are other lessons to be learned from this wonderful story. All things are to be done decently and in order. The multitude was made to sit down in companies of fifty. There was to be no crowding or pushing; the strong must wait for the weak.

Each meal should begin with the giving of thanks. "Looking up to Heaven, He blessed, and brake, and gave to the disciples." The holy custom of giving thanks appears to be fading away, from even Christian homes, to our great loss, for "He was made known to them in the breaking of bread" (Luk 24:30-31).

We may expect more than the bare necessaries of life at the hands of our gracious God, who "giveth us richly all things to enjoy." He gives not bread only, but fish; luxuries, as well as necessaries. How much there is in life which we enjoy, but which is not absolutely necessary--music and art, flowers and fruit, sunrise and sunset, as well as ordinary daylight. "If ye then, 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."

PRAYER

Teach us, O Lord, the art of so living in fellowship with Thyself that every act may be a Psalm, every meal a sacrament, every room a sanctuary, every thought a prayer. AMEN.

FAITH'S CHECKBOOK

Complete Deliverance

But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the LORD; and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid"   (Jeremiah 39:17).

When the LORD's faithful ones are suffering for Him, they shall have sweet messages of love from Himself, and sometimes they shall have glad tidings for those who sympathize with them and help them. Ebed-melech was only a despised Ethiopian, but he was kind to Jeremiah, and so the LORD sent him this special promise by the mouth of His prophet. Let us be ever mindful of God's persecuted servants, and He will reward us. Ebed-melech was to be delivered from the men whose vengeance he feared. He was a humble... man, but Jehovah would take care of him. Thousands were slain by the Chaldeans, but [he] could not be hurt. We, too, may be fearful of some great ones who are bitter against us; but if we have been faithful to the LORD's cause in the hour of persecution, He will be faithful to us. After all, what can a man do without the LORD's permission? He puts a bit into the mouth of rage and a bridle upon the head of power. Let us fear the LORD, and we shall have no one else to fear. No cup of cold water given to a despised prophet of God shall be without its reward; and if we stand up for Jesus, Jesus will stand up for us.

SPURGEON'S
MORNING AND EVENING

Morning, July 5
“Called to be saints.”
Romans 1:7
We are very apt to regard the apostolic saints as if they were “saints” in a more especial manner than the other children of God. All are “saints” whom God has called by His grace, and sanctified by His Spirit; but we are apt to look upon the apostles as extraordinary beings, scarcely subject to the same weaknesses and temptations as ourselves. Yet in so doing we are forgetful of this truth, that the nearer a man lives to God the more intensely has he to mourn over his own evil heart; and the more his Master honours him in his service, the more also doth the evil of the flesh vex and tease him day by day. The fact is, if we had seen the apostle Paul, we should have thought him remarkably like the rest of the chosen family: and if we had talked with him, we should have said, “We find that his experience and ours are much the same. He is more faithful, more holy, and more deeply taught than we are, but he has the selfsame trials to endure. Nay, in some respects he is more sorely tried than ourselves.” Do not, then, look upon the ancient saints as being exempt either from infirmities or sins; and do not regard them with that mystic reverence which will almost make us idolaters. Their holiness is attainable even by us. We are “called to be saints” by that same voice which constrained them to their high vocation. It is a Christian’s duty to force his way into the inner circle of saintship; and if these saints were superior to us in their attainments, as they certainly were, let us follow them; let us emulate their ardour and holiness. We have the same light that they had, the same grace is accessible to us, and why should we rest satisfied until we have equalled them in heavenly character? They lived with Jesus, they lived for Jesus, therefore they grew like Jesus. Let us live by the same Spirit as they did, “looking unto Jesus,” and our saintship will soon be apparent.

Evening, July 5
“Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.”
Isaiah 26:4
Seeing that we have such a God to trust to, let us rest upon him with all our weight; let us resolutely drive out all unbelief, and endeavour to get rid of doubts and fears, which so much mar our comfort; since there is no excuse for fear where God is the foundation of our trust. A loving parent would be sorely grieved if his child could not trust him; and how ungenerous, how unkind is our conduct when we put so little confidence in our heavenly Father who has never failed us, and who never will. It were well if doubting were banished from the household of God; but it is to be feared that old Unbelief is as nimble nowadays as when the psalmist asked, “Is his mercy clean gone forever? Will he be favourable no more?” David had not made any very lengthy trial of the mighty sword of the giant Goliath, and yet he said, “There is none like it.” He had tried it once in the hour of his youthful victory, and it had proved itself to be of the right metal, and therefore he praised it ever afterwards; even so should we speak well of our God, there is none like unto him in the heaven above or the earth beneath; “To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.” There is no rock like unto the rock of Jacob, our enemies themselves being judges. So far from suffering doubts to live in our hearts, we will take the whole detestable crew, as Elijah did the prophets of Baal, and slay them over the brook; and for a stream to kill them at, we will select the sacred torrent which wells forth from our Saviour’s wounded side. We have been in many trials, but we have never yet been cast where we could not find in our God all that we needed. Let us then be encouraged to trust in the Lord forever, assured that his ever lasting strength will be, as it has been, our succour and stay.

JULY The Fifth
THE DISCIPLESHIP THAT TELLS
“He that followeth Me.”
—John 8.12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20.

YES, but I must make sure that I follow Him in Spirit and in truth (Jn 4:24). It is so easy to be self-deceived. I may follow a pleasant emotion, while all the time a bit of grim cross-bearing is being ignored. I may be satisfied to be “out on the ocean sailing,” singing of “a home beyond the tide,” while all the time there is a piece of perilous salvage work to be done beneath the waves. To “follow Jesus” is to face the hostility of scribes and Pharisees, to offer restoring friendship to publicans and sinners, to pray in blood-shedding in Gethsemane, to brave the derision of the brutal mob, and to be “ready” for the appalling happenings on Calvary! Therefore, following is not a light picnic; it is a possible martyrdom!

But if I set my face “to go,” the Lord Himself will visit me with “the light of life.” And the resource shall not be broken and spasmodic: it shall be mine without ceasing. “Be thou faithful ... and I will give thee ... life.” That life will flow into my soul, just as the oxygenating air flows down to the diver who is faithfully busy recovering wreckage from the wealth-strewn bed of the mighty sea. Let me be faithful, and every moment the Lord will crown me with His own vitalizing life!

J R Miller's
"Year Book" 1895

July 5.

"Praise be to the Lord! Not one word has failed, of all the wonderful promises He gave!" 1 Kings 8:56

It is nearly three thousand years since Solomon uttered this testimony; but we can say now, just as confidently as the king did that day, that in all these centuries since not one word of all God's good promise has failed any one of his people. No one has ever trusted a promise of God—and had that word fail of fulfillment.

The most real and sure things in this world—are the words of God. In every one of them, God's own almighty hand is gloved. We clutch them—and find ourselves clutched in turn by divinity, out of whose clasp we never can fall, nor be torn away. We lean upon these words—and find ourselves encircled and upborne by the everlasting arms. We pillow our head in weariness or sorrow upon God's words of love and comfort—and find ourselves drawn close to our Father's heart, held in his warm bosom, and soothed by his tenderness, which is gentler than a mother's.

So all through life, in every experience, we may trust the promises of God, and commit all our interests to them, and be assured in our heart that not one of them will ever fail us. We may trust them, too, in death, and we shall find everything just as God has said: the divine presence with us in the valley, dying but a going to be at home, absent from the body at home with the Lord, in eternal blessedness. Not one Word of God can fail.

July 5 -The God’s Story Project (TGSP)
by VA

Though Dorothy Miller’s earthly flame has now been extinguished, the brightness of The God’s Story Project (TGSP) burns on. The God’s Story video is now available in more than 300 languages and has been played on solar-powered audio players in 80 different countries around the world. TGSP is also branching out in hopes of reaching modern, urban audiences by offering the Hip Hop God’s Story, which integrates a rhyming style with the spoken Word.
The home page of The God’s Story website tells of a Burmese man and his wife who received Christ after watching The God’s Story video in their own language. Both accepted Christ as a result of watching the video. The man was 116 years old!
A national who ministers to 18 Muslim students in the Philippines testified to introducing her students to the STS program, and all 18 of them are now preparing themselves to do cross cultural work within the 10/40 Window.
Using the STS method, a woman ministering in India taught a young crippled girl the story of the woman who was sick for 12 years and was healed by Jesus. She emphasized the healing touch of Jesus until the girl understood. Shortly thereafter, the girl was healed. Dorothy Miller’s vision marches on!

Learn more at joshuaproject.net
Pray that the work of TGSP translators, narrators, production teams, missionaries, and national believers will continue, and that many will come to know and love Jesus Christ for decades to come.

Luke 15:20, NET
So he got up and went to his father. But while he was still a long way from home his father saw him, and his heart went out to him; he ran and hugged his son and kissed him.
Chinese culture places a high value on not being shamed. Elders and family leaders are especially vigilant about making sure they live in honor. This father, who represents our Heavenly Father, is willing to run to His wayward son and publically show affection to him. What an over-the-top way to describe how much our Heavenly Father wants us to turn to Him!

Pray that worldwide the people will soon have skits presented to them that will demonstrate the intense love that God has for all nations.—KC

CODE RED:
PRAY FOR REVIVAL

Restore us, O God of our salvation, and cause Your indignation toward us to cease. Will You be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger to all generations? Will You not Yourself revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You? Show us Your lovingkindness, O LORD, and grant us Your salvation. (Psalm 85:4-7)

O God, restore us And cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved. O LORD God of hosts, How long will You be angry with the prayer of Your people? (Psalm 80:3-4)

Bryon Paulus, director of Life Action Ministries, has said our greatest obstacle for revival is failure to pray, to plead, to intercede, to cry out.  Leonard Ravenhill summed it up...

The self-satisfied doesn't need to pray. The self-sufficient doesn't want to pray. The self-righteous cannot pray!

Paulus commented: "Those three principles apply to revival: We are so self-satisfied that we don't want revival, so self-sufficient that we think we don't need revival, and so self-righteous that we can't have revival." (Ouch!)

Consider joining with other believers at One Cry - A Nationwide Call for Spiritual Awakening (Dearly beloved of God, watch the Video and join Cry Out!)

May God Grant Us Grace|
To
Intercede For America
While we still have time!

God addressed Israel in the following famous passage but the timeless principle is apropos to believers in America ...

If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2Chr 7:13, 14)

J. Barton Payne writes that "This great verse, the best known in all Chronicles, expresses as does no other in Scripture God’s requirement for national blessing, whether in Solomon’s land, in Ezra’s, or in our own. Those who believe must forsake their sins, turn from the life that is centered in self, and yield to God’s word and will. Then, and only then, will heaven send revival."

May God grant His children grace to plead for a Spirit driven, God glorifying, Word centered, Christ exalting revival of the Body of Christ in America.

First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. (1Ti 2:1,2)

Our Heavenly Father desires to hear His children cry out with "fasting, sackcloth and ashes" (Da 9:3), reflecting not the external appearance of our bodies, but more accurately the internal condition of our hearts - sinful (Da 9:5 - "we" not "they"!), rejecting His Holy Word (Da 9:6-"we"), shameful (Da 9:8-"us"), contrite, and broken (Ps 51:17), over our national rejection of God's righteous and holy Name...

Daniel's prayer (Da 9:3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19) is an excellent "template" for all saints to emulate as we begin to intercede with a sense of urgency for America and especially for God's Name and reputation considering that the world thinks of us as a "Christian nation" and we once called ourselves "One Nation Under God"!

Matthew Henry's comments on Lev 26:40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46 (directed first to Israel but applicable to any nation that rejects Him) 

Among the Israelites, persons were not always prosperous or afflicted according to their obedience or disobedience. But national prosperity was the effect of national obedience, and national judgments were brought on by national wickedness. Israel was under a peculiar covenant.

National wickedness will end in the ruin of any people,
especially where the Word of God and the light of the Gospel are enjoyed.

Sooner or later, sin will be the ruin, as well as the reproach, of every people.

Oh that, being humbled for our sins,
we might avert the rising storm before it bursts upon us!

(Note: Henry's comments were published in 1706 and national revival, the First Great Awakening, occurred in the 1730's and 1740's! Brethren, there is hope because there is a "God of hope"! Ro 15:13)

God grant that we may, in this our day,
consider the things which belong to our eternal peace.

Righteousness exalts a nation,
But sin is a disgrace to any people.
Proverbs 14:34

My (Our) soul cleaves to the dust;
Revive me (us) according to Thy word.
Psalm 119:25
