Watching daily at my gates,
Waiting at my doorposts
as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the
eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to
the Lord our God, until He is gracious to us
continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the
doorway of the tent of meeting before the Lord, where I will meet
with you, to speak to you there.--In every place where I cause My
name to be remembered, I will come to you and bless you.
For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am
there in their midst.
An hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will
worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father
seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship
Him must worship in spirit and truth.

WALKING IN THE SPIRIT
"Walk in the Spirit, and ye
shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh."-- Gal 5:16.
WHEN WE walk in the spirit
we shall be led by Him. In the early stages of life we are apt to
be headstrong and impulsive, as Moses when he felled the Egyptian.
But as we grow in Christian experience, we wait for the leadings
of the Spirit, moving us by His suggestion, impressing on us His
will, working within us what afterwards we work out in character
and deed. We do not go in front, but follow behind. We are led by
The man or woman who walks
in the Spirit has no desire to fulfil the lust of the flesh. The
desire for the gratification of natural appetite may be latent in
the soul, and may flash through the thoughts, but he does not
fulfil it. The desire cannot be prevented, but its fulfilment can
certainly be withheld.
When we walk in the Spirit
He produces in us the fruit of a holy character. The contrast
between the works of the fleshly--i.e., the selfish life.--and the
fruit of the Spirit, which is the natural product of His
influence, is very marked. In works there is effort, the clatter
of machinery, the deafening noise of the factory. But fruit is
found in the calm, still, regular process of Nature, which is ever
producing in her secret laboratory the kindly fruits of the earth.
How quiet it all is! There is no voice nor language. It is almost
impossible to realise what is being effected by a long summer day
of sunshine. The growing of autumn arrives with noiseless
footsteps. So it is with the soul that daily walks in the Spirit.
There are probably no startling experiences, no marked
transitions, nothing special to record in the diary, but every
year those who live in close proximity witness a ripening wealth
of fruit in the manifestation of love, joy, peace, long suffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, self-control.
Gracious Lord! May Thy Holy
Spirit keep me ever walking in the light of Thy countenance. May
He fill my heart with the sense of Thy nearness and loving
fellowship. Order my steps in Thy way, and walk with me, that I
may do the thing that pleases Thee. AMEN.

by C H Spurgeon
(Read C H Spurgeon's testimony
- It is miraculous as is EVERY testimony of the new birth)
"Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it" (1 Thessalonians
What will He do? He will sanctify us wholly. See the previous verse. He
will carry on the work of purification till we are perfect in every part.
He will preserve our "whole spirit, and soul, and body, blameless unto the
coming of our LORD Jesus Christ." He will not allow us to fall from grace,
nor come under the dominion of sin. What great favors are these! Well may
we adore the giver of such unspeakable gifts. Who will do this? The LORD
who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light, out of death
in sin into eternal life in Christ Jesus. Only He can do this: such
perfection and preservation can only come from the God of all grace. Why
will He do it? Because He is "faithful"--faithful to His own promise which
is pledged to save the believer; faithful to His Son, whose reward it is
that His people shall he presented to Him faultless, faithful to the work
which He has commenced in us by our effectual calling. It is not their own
faithfulness but the LORD's own faithfulness on which the saints rely.
Come, my soul, here is a grand feast to begin a dull month with. There may
be fogs without, but there should be sunshine within.
MORNING AND EVENING
Morning, Nov 1
“The church in thy house.”
Is there a Church in this house? Are parents, children, friends,
servants, all members of it? or are some still unconverted? Let us
pause here and let the question go round—Am I a member of the Church
in this house? How would father’s heart leap for joy, and mother’s
eyes fill with holy tears if from the eldest to the youngest all
were saved! Let us pray for this great mercy until the Lord shall
grant it to us. Probably it had been the dearest object of
Philemon’s desires to have all his household saved; but it was not
at first granted him in its fulness. He had a wicked servant,
Onesimus, who, having wronged him, ran away from his service. His
master’s prayers followed him, and at last, as God would have it,
Onesimus was led to hear Paul preach; his heart was touched, and he
returned to Philemon, not only to be a faithful servant, but a
brother beloved, adding another member to the Church in Philemon’s
house. Is there an unconverted servant or child absent this morning?
Make special supplication that such may, on their return to their
home, gladden all hearts with good news of what grace has done! Is
there one present? Let him partake in the same earnest entreaty.
If there be such a Church in our house, let us order it well, and
let all act as in the sight of God. Let us move in the common
affairs of life with studied holiness, diligence, kindness, and
integrity. More is expected of a Church than of an ordinary
household; family worship must, in such a case, be more devout and
hearty; internal love must be more warm and unbroken, and external
conduct must be more sanctified and Christlike. We need not fear
that the smallness of our number will put us out of the list of
Churches, for the Holy Spirit has here enrolled a family-church in
the inspired book of remembrance. As a Church let us now draw nigh
to the great head of the one Church universal, and let us beseech
him to give us grace to shine before men to the glory of his name.
Evening, Nov 1
And knew not until the flood
came, and took them all away: so shall also the coming of the Son of
Universal was the doom, neither rich nor poor escaped: the learned
and the illiterate, the admired and the abhorred, the religious and
the profane, the old and the young, all sank in one common ruin.
Some had doubtless ridiculed the patriarch—where now their merry
jests? Others had threatened him for his zeal which they counted
madness—where now their boastings and hard speeches? The critic who
judged the old man’s work is drowned in the same sea which covers
his sneering companions. Those who spoke patronizingly of the good
man’s fidelity to his convictions, but shared not in them, have sunk
to rise no more, and the workers who for pay helped to build the
wondrous ark, are all lost also. The flood swept them all away, and
made no single exception. Even so, out of Christ, final destruction
is sure to every man of woman born; no rank, possession, or
character, shall suffice to save a single soul who has not believed
in the Lord Jesus. My soul, behold this wide-spread judgment and
tremble at it.
How marvellous the general apathy! they were all eating and
drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, till the awful morning
dawned. There was not one wise man upon earth out of the ark. Folly
duped the whole race, folly as to self-preservation—the most foolish
of all follies. Folly in doubting the most true God—the most
malignant of fooleries. Strange, my soul, is it not? All men are
negligent of their souls till grace gives them reason, then they
leave their madness and act like rational beings, but not till then.
All, blessed be God, were safe in the ark, no ruin entered there.
From the huge elephant down to the tiny mouse all were safe. The
timid hare was equally secure with the courageous lion, the helpless
cony as safe as the laborious ox. All are safe in Jesus. My soul,
art thou in him?
NOVEMBER The First
IN THE DAYS OF YOUTH
Ecclesiastes 12:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
IN my university days at Edinburgh there was a young medical student named
Macfarlane. He was one of our finest athletes, and everybody liked him.
One day he was stricken with typhoid, which proved fatal. Macfarlane in
his days of boisterous health had neglected his Lord, and when one of his
friends, visiting him in his sickness, led his thoughts to the Saviour, he
turned and said, “But wouldn’t it be a shabby thing to turn to Christ
now?” “Yes,” replied his friend, “it will be a shabby thing, but it will
be shabbier not to turn to Him at all!” And I believe that poor Macfarlane
turned his shame-filled soul to the Lord.
But it is shabby to offer our Lord the mere dregs in life’s cup. It is
shabby to offer Him the mere hull of the boat when the storms of passion
have carried its serviceableness away. Let me offer Him my best, my finest
equipment, my youth! Let me offer Him the best, and give Him the helm when
I am just setting sail and life abounds in golden promise! “Remember now
thy Creator in the days of thy youth.”
"Year Book" 1895
"Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry" Ephesians
It is well for us to have horizons which cut off our life for the
time, as if it were ended. These temporary endings keep us
thoughtful and mindful of the final ending—after which will come
no beginning again in this world. Evening puts an end to life's
work for a season. We leave the plough standing in the furrow, the
hammer lying by the anvil, the axe resting against the root of the
tree. We shut the door of the mill or office and go home. Our work
is done for the day—and we may never take it up again! Every
setting of the sun, should therefore be a testing of life.
Everything should be finished—as if it were the ending of all.
Especially should the hour of evening, when we bow at God's feet,
be always a time for setting right all that may have gone wrong in
us during the day. Then every feeling of bitterness should be cast
out of our heart. Life is too critical for us—to venture into any
night's darkness and sleep, cherishing anger or envy. "Do not let
the sun go down while you are still angry" is a wise counsel.

Global Prayer Digest
(1) GLOBAL PRAYER DIGEST
- Breakthrough from the 2012 GPD
In the Global Prayer Digest (GPD) office, we have had many good
contacts with field missionaries since we started our partnership
with Ethne to Ethne in 2006. We have found out that God is
answering our prayers, and we need to pray for follow up!
In November of 2012 we prayed for unreached Muslim people groups
in Central Asia that lack their own Bible translation. We prayed
that God’s Word would reach these Muslims in their heart
We recently found out that one organization has been working with
a particular unreached group for over 20 years. Suddenly people
with computers have begun to access a certain website and have
received from it Scripture portions of the Word in their own
language. In a short time more people have received the Word
through this web site and distribution of paper copies than in the
last 10 years!
At one time Scripture portions were only distributed by hand. But
with the advent of the Internet, people can download their own
digital or printed copies of the word of God, often without
neighbors and family members interfering. Many are now writing to
those who own the web site asking questions. They receive biblical
answers to questions about everything from how to get along with
others, how to handle money, and God’s character. Some send
hostile comments, while others are seeking spiritual answers.
Thank the Lord for this new opportunity to get the Word of God to
Central Asian Muslims who have access to computers. Pray for
lasting spiritual fruit that will affect this entire region.
Psalms 119:125-126, NIV
Because I love Your commands more than gold, more than pure gold,
and because I consider all your precepts right, I hate every wrong
If this is true, then the people who have made God’s Word
available to the Muslim Central Asians have given them a gold
mine! Think of it; how much would someone have to pay you to live
your entire life without God’s Word to guide you?
Thank the Lord that certain Muslims in Central Asia now have
access to God’s Word. Pray that they will read and obey what He
says and that the use of computers can be expanded to get the word
of God out to all the unreached people groups in the world.

Restore us, O God of our

be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger to all
generations? Will You not Yourself revive us again, that Your

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?
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...
doesn't need to pray. The self-sufficient doesn't want to
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!)

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

the ruin, as well as the reproach, of every people.

(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)
