Hopefully, by now, you are in the 'habit', of taking time in the day for a 'devotion' stop. Hopefully, you now do this because you know the value of doing so. Meeting at the beginning of any day with the Lord, is TRUE WISDOM. Remember:
Proverbs 3:13-18 - Happy [is] the man [that] findeth wisdom, and the man [that] getteth understanding. [Read More...audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html] THEREFORE:
First for this morning and on-going, my 'continuing prayer', for this series and more, is found in Ephesians 3:14-21, to wit: [audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html]
'14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.'
This morning, [Selected from 'Morning and Evening Devotions, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1855']
[Scripture additions and notes - SMQ] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
“And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew not him.”
'This morning our desires went forth for growth in our acquaintance with the Lord Jesus; it may be well tonight to consider a kindred topic, namely, our heavenly Joseph's knowledge of us. This was most blessedly perfect long before we had the slightest knowledge of him. “His eyes beheld our substance, yet being imperfect, and in his book all our members were written, when as yet there was none of them.” [Psalm 139:16]
'Before we had a being in the world we had a being in his heart. When we were enemies to him, he knew us, our misery, our madness, and our wickedness. [Romans 5:7,8; 10] When we wept bitterly in despairing repentance, and viewed him only as a judge and a ruler, he viewed us as his brethren well beloved, and his bowels yearned towards us. He never mistook his chosen, but always beheld them as objects of his infinite affection. “The Lord knoweth them that are his,” is as true of the prodigals who are feeding swine as of the children who sit at the table.' [Psalm 51:4;17; 2 Samuel 12:9; Joel 2:12-13; 2 Timothy 2:25; 1 Peter 1:16]
'But, alas! we knew not our royal Brother, and out of this ignorance grew a host of sins. We withheld our hearts from him, and allowed him no entrance to our love. We mistrusted him, and gave no credit to his words. We rebelled against him, and paid him no loving homage. The Sun of Righteousness shone forth, and we could not see him. Heaven came down to earth, and earth perceived it not.
Let God be praised, those days are over with us; yet even now it is but little that we know of Jesus compared with what he knows of us. We have but begun to study him, but he knoweth us altogether. It is a blessed circumstance that the ignorance is not on his side, for then it would be a hopeless case for us. He will not say to us, “I never knew you,” [Matthew 7:23]; but he will confess our names in the day of his appearing, [Matthew 10:23], and meanwhile will manifest himself to us as he doth not unto the world. [John 14:21]' Amen. Amen.
Thank you for returning this afternoon my friends, when we will review with a 'few words' on - TRUE REPENTANCE, FOR SUCH TIMES AS THESE. Amen. Amen.
