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, 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] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
'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.
A-Series. [Selected from 'Morning and Evening Devotions, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1855']

“Thy love is better than wine.”
Song of Solomon 1:2 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
[See also here in 'Sanctuary', the Song of Solomon posting MWF, since June 29; July 1-3, 2020]
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]
'Nothing gives the believer so much joy as fellowship with Christ. He has enjoyment as others have in the common mercies of life, he can be glad both in God’s gifts and God’s works; but in all these separately, yea, and in all of them added together, he doth not find such substantial delight as in the matchless person of his Lord Jesus.'
'He has wine which no vineyard on earth ever yielded; he has bread which all the corn-fields of Egypt could never bring forth. Where can such sweetness be found as we have tasted in communion with our Beloved? In our esteem, the joys of earth are little better than husks for swine compared with Jesus, the heavenly manna. We would rather have one mouthful of Christ’s love, and a sip of his fellowship, than a whole world full of carnal delights. What is the chaff to the wheat? What is the sparkling paste to the true diamond? What is a dream to the glorious reality? What is time’s mirth, in its best trim, compared to our Lord Jesus in his most despised estate?'
'If you know anything of the inner life, you will confess that our highest, purest, and most enduring joys must be the fruit of the tree of life which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.'
'No spring yields such sweet water as that well of God which was digged with the soldier’s spear. All earthly bliss is of the earth earthy, but the comforts of Christ’s presence are like himself, heavenly.'
'We can review our communion with Jesus, and find no regrets of emptiness therein; there are no dregs in this wine, no dead flies in this ointment. The joy of the Lord is solid and enduring. Vanity hath not looked upon it, but discretion and prudence testify that it abideth the test of years, and is in time and in eternity worthy to be called “the only true delight.”
'For nourishment, consolation, exhilaration, and refreshment, no wine can rival the love of Jesus. Let us drink to the full this evening.' Amen. Amen.
