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.'
Now, [Selected from 'Morning and Evening Devotions, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1855']
[Scripture additions and notes - SMQ]
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.”
'The voice crying in the wilderness demanded a way for the Lord, a way prepared, and a way prepared in the wilderness. I would be attentive to the Master’s proclamation, and give him a road into my heart, cast up by gracious operations, through the desert of my nature. The four directions in the text must have my serious attention.'
'Every valley must be exalted. Low and grovelling thoughts of God must be given up; doubting and despairing must be removed; and self-seeking and carnal delights must be forsaken. Across these deep valleys a glorious causeway of grace must be raised.' [Genesis 18:10-14; Matthew 11:1-7; John 19:1-7; 20:24-29; Acts 1:3-4; 14:15-18;26:26; 1 Corinthians 5:8; James 1:5-8] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
'Every mountain and hill shall be laid low. Proud creature-sufficiency, and boastful self-righteousness, must be levelled, to make a highway for the King of kings. Divine fellowship is never vouchsafed to haughty, highminded sinners. The Lord hath respect unto the lowly, and visits the contrite in heart, but the lofty are an abomination unto him. My soul, beseech the Holy Spirit to set thee right in this respect.'
[Proverbs 16:18-19] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
''The crooked shall be made straight. The wavering heart must have a straight path of decision for God and holiness marked out for it. Double-minded men are strangers to the God of truth. My soul, take heed that thou be in all things honest and true, as in the sight of the heart-searching God.' [Psalm 119:113-115; James 1:6-8; 22-25; 4;8] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
'The rough places shall be made smooth. Stumbling-blocks of sin must be removed, and thorns and briers of rebellion must be uprooted. So great a visitor must not find miry ways and stony places when he comes to honour his favoured ones with his company.' [Matthew 16:23; 18:5-8; Romans 14:1; 1 Corinthians 8:9]
' Oh that this evening the Lord may find in my heart a highway made ready by his grace, that he may make a triumphal progress through the utmost bounds of my soul, from the beginning of this year even to the end of it.' [Revelation 3:20] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
Where, oh where are we, Adams and Eves, in such times as these??? Amen. Amen.
