This Day's Thought

Prayer Requests

A man who loves the Word of God, a man who dwells upon what it says, a man who keeps a little text in his mind to think about as he is walking on his way, and that meditates upon it day and night, “Whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”  If you can find a man who carries out this direction and doesn’t prosper, you can doubt the inspiration of the first Psalm; but find the man first.

J. Hudson Taylor


This Day's Verse

He who is of a proud heart stirs up strife, But he who trusts in the LORD will be prospered.  He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But whoever walks wisely will be delivered.

Proverbs 28:25-26
The New King James Version

Faith has been reduced to a comfortable system of beliefs about God instead of an uncomfortable encounter with God.

This Day's Thought

Prayer Requests

Christmas is the harvest time of love.  Souls are drawn to other souls.  All that we have read and thought and hoped comes to fruition at this happy time.  Our spirits are astir.  We feel within us a strong desire to serve.  A strange, subtle force, a new kindness, animates man and child.  A new spirit is growing in us.  No longer are we content to relieve pain, to sweeten sorrow, to give the crust of charity.  We dare to give friendship, service, the equal loaf of bread and love.

Helen Keller


This Day's Verse

“I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Genesis 12:3
The New King James Version

Christmas is when God came down the stairs of heaven with a baby in His arms.

There was a gift for each of us left under the tree of life 2000 years ago by Him whose birthday we celebrate today.  The gift was withheld from no man.  Some have left the packages unclaimed.  Some have accepted the gift and carried it around, but have failed to remove the wrappings and look inside to discover the hidden splendor.  The packages are all alike:  In each is a scroll on which is written, “All that the Father hath is thine.”  Take and live!

This Day's Verse

The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs and the obedience of the nations is his.

Then let every heart keep Christmas within:
Christ’s pity for sorrow,
Christ’s hatred for sin,
Christ’s care for the weakest,
Christ’s courage for right.
Everywhere, everywhere,
Christmas tonight!

Phillips Brooks


This Day's Verse

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.  And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end.  He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever.  The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.

Isaiah 9:6-7
The New International Version 


This Day's Smile

An attorney I very much admired once said that the greatest gift he ever received in his life was a note his dad gave him on Christmas.  It read, “Son, this year I will give you 365 hours.  An hour every day after dinner.  We’ll talk about whatever you want to talk about.  We’ll go wherever you want to go, play whatever you want to play.  It will be your hour.”  That dad kept his promise and renewed it every year.

This Day's Thought

Prayer Requests

Nothing is more beautiful than our Lord’s forethought!  He was always thinking ahead of the disciples.  When He sent them to prepare the Passover there was found an upper room furnished and prepared.  His plans were not only for that day.  He was always in advance of time!  When the disciples came back from fishing, Jesus was on the seashore with a fire of coals and fish laid thereon.  In the morning he thinks of the day, before you are astir!  After the resurrection, the disciples were bewildered and the way looked black.  But the angel said, “Behold, He goeth before you into Galilee.”  He is always thinking ahead, preparing ahead!  “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  I go to prepare a place for you.”

Unknown


This Day's Verse

For the Lord will not cast off for ever, but, though he cause grief, he will have compassion according to the abundance of his steadfast love; for he does not willingly afflict or grieve the sons of men.

Lamentations 3:31-33
The Revised Standard Version 

 

 

This Day's Thought

Prayer Requests

Doth not all nature around me praise God?  If I were silent, I should be an exception to the universe.  Doth not the thunder praise Him as it rolls like drums in the march of the God of armies?  Do not the mountains praise Him when the woods upon their summits wave in adoration?  Does not the lightning write His name in letters of fire?  Hath not the whole earth a voice?  And shall I, can I, silent be?

Charles H. Spurgeon


This Day's Verse

Walk in all the way that the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.

All His glory and beauty come from within, and there He delights to dwell.  His visits there are frequent, His conversation sweet, His comforts refreshing:  His peace passing all understanding.

Then, knowing what lies ahead for you, you won’t become bored with being a Christian, nor become spiritually dull and indifferent, but you will be anxious to follow the example of those who receive all that God has promised them because of their strong faith and patience.

No man is prosperous whose immortality is forfeited.  No man is rich to whom the grave brings eternal bankruptcy.  No man is happy upon whose path there rests but a momentary glimmer of light, shining out between clouds that are closing over him in darkness forever.

You may have living and habitual conversation in heaven, under the aspect of the most simple, ordinary life.  Remember that holiness does not consist in doing uncommon things, but in doing every thing with purity of heart.

This Day's Verse

People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them.  When Jesus saw this, he was indignant.  He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”  And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.
