Of note, my friends.
This year, in some of the different rooms, before moving on to another 'devotion' text in the next month we will post the same 'devotion' excerpts for the entire respective 'month'. This shall be so that we are 'slowly, devotionally, meditatively' 'tasting and knowing that the Lord is good'.
[For additional see Psalm 34:8; Matthew 10:19-20; Mark 13:11; Luke 12:12; John 14:26; James 1:19-27; 1 John 2:27]
However, here in the 'Sanctuary' Room, on a bi-monthly basis, sometimew we will post a new devotion each time. So, continue to take your time. Be blessed and enjoy each time in the Presence of the Lord, as you meditatively 'linger' to hear Him speak to you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, through His Word, for your guidance and obedience. After all, 'faith is the only thing which pleases God'; and, 'faith comes by hearing, hearing by the word'. [Romans 10:17; Ephesians 2:8-9; James 1:19-27]
'Faith', 'true, biblical faith', is small or non-existing, unless it is based upon the 'word explained by the Holy Spirit, that does not contradict God'. [John 16:13] BE NOT DECEIVED! Amen. Amen.

B-Series. [Now, a 'series' with some Additional Scriptures for you to further 'meditate' upon - 'seeking the Lord', or, 'getting around the Holy Scriptures'.] [See also post B1, February 16, 2020; B2, March 1, 2020; B3, March 15, 2020; B4, April 26, 2020]
'We will be glad and rejoice in thee. We will not open the gates of the year to the dolorous notes of the sackbut, but to the sweet strains of the harp of joy, and the high sounding cymbals of gladness. “O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise unto the rock of our salvation.” We, the called and faithful and chosen, we will drive away our griefs, and set up our banners of confidence in the name of God. Let others lament over their troubles, we who have the sweetening tree to cast into Marah’s bitter pool, [Exodus 15:22-23; Numbers 33:8] with joy will magnify the Lord. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Eternal Spirit, our effectual Comforter, [John 14:16-21], we who are the temples in which thou dwellest, will never cease from adoring and blessing the name of Jesus. [John 14:16; Acts 2:4; 4:31; 11:24; 13:9; We will, we are resolved about it, Jesus must have the crown of our heart’s delight; we will not dishonour our Bridegroom by mourning in his presence. [Matthew 25:1-12; John 3:29] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
'We are ordained to be the minstrels of the skies, let us rehearse our everlasting anthem before we sing it in the halls of the New Jerusalem. [1 Thessalonians 5:16; Revelation 5:8-14; 14:1-3, are examples.] We will be glad and rejoice: two words with one sense, double joy, blessedness upon blessedness. Need there be any limit to our rejoicing in the Lord even now? Do not men of grace find their Lord to be camphire and spikenard, calamus and cinnamon even now, and what better fragrance have they in heaven itself? We will be glad and rejoice in Thee. That last word is the meat in the dish, the kernel of the nut, the soul of the text.
What heavens are laid up in Jesus! What rivers of infinite bliss have their source, aye, and every drop of their fulness in him! Since, O sweet Lord Jesus, thou art the present portion of thy people, favour us this year with such a sense of thy preciousness, that from its first to its last day we may be glad and rejoice in thee. Let January and each month, open with joy in the Lord, and December close with gladness in Jesus.' Amen. Amen.
