Welcome Back, My Friends - 2019
Welcome all 'new visitors', who have found 'my house in and with Jesus'.
It just does not matter! Whether I am in Wilmington, North Carolina on a little 'river cruise' on the Cape Fear River, or, anywhere else, like here in Athens, Greece, still we meet and have a wonderful time. For this year, 2019, in all the 'rooms' of 'my house in and with Jesus', I pray you and I will continue to meet and have the same wonderful, growing times, in the Lord. Amen. Amen. How then, shall we start the year - 2019?
Let us continue with our 'series' of 'devotions' from my favorite pastor of old, The Morning and Evenings Devotions of Charles Haddon Spurgeon [1834-1892].
Now, my friends, you can better understand why Charles Haddon Spurgeon is a favorite of mine, when it comes to 'devotions'. He speaks, in accordance with the Word. Be careful what you read. If it cannot be proven by the Word, you are just reading 'opinions' of others. Stick to God's word, explained, with the Holy Spirit resonating in your heart that it is true, by the peace you have upon studying the devotions or comments. [Matthew 24:4-5; Acts 17:11; 1 John 4:1] Amen. Amen.
[Additions of Holy Scripture references, and emphasis, SMQ.]
“Then Ahimaaz ran by the way of the plain, and overran Cushi.”
2 Samuel 18:23 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
'Running is not everything, there is much in the way which we select: a swift foot over hill and down dale will not keep pace with a slower traveller upon level ground. How is it with my spiritual journey, am I labouring up the hill of my own works and down into the ravines of my own humiliations and resolutions, or do I run by the plain way of “Believe and live”? [John 11:26]
How blessed is it to wait upon the Lord by faith! The soul runs without weariness, and walks without fainting, in the way of believing. [Exodus 14:14; Psalm 27:14; Isaiah 30:18; 40:31; Romans 8:25; 12:12; 2 Peter 3:8, 9]
Christ Jesus is the way of life, and he is a plain way, a pleasant way, a way suitable for the tottering feet and feeble knees of trembling sinners: am I found in this way, or am I hunting after another track such as priest craft or metaphysics may promise me? [Proverbs 14:12; John 14:6[ audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
I read of the way of holiness, [Isaiah 35:8] that the wayfaring man, though a fool, shall not err therein: have I been delivered from proud reason and been brought as a little child to rest in Jesus’ love and blood? [Matthew 18:3, 19:14; Mark 10:15; Luke 18:16; John 3:15-16]
If so, by God’s grace I shall outrun the strongest runner who chooses any other path. [Ecclesiastes 9:11-12; Zechariah 4:6; John 10:1] This truth I may remember to my profit in my daily cares and needs. [Matthew 6:11-13; 1 Peter 5:7-9] It will be my wisest course to go at once to my God, and not to wander in a roundabout manner to this friend and that. He knows my wants and can relieve them, ]Psalms 23; 37, 73; 127] to whom should I repair but to himself by the direct appeal of prayer, and the plain argument of the promise. “Straightforward makes the best runner.” I will not parlay with the servants, but hasten to their master. [1 Chronicles 29:12-15, 18; Matthew 7:7-8; Mark 11:24; James Chapter 1] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
In reading this passage, it strikes me that if men vie with each other in common matters, and one outruns the other, I ought to be in solemn earnestness so to run that I may obtain. Lord, help me to gird up the loins of my mind, and may I press forward towards the mark for the prize of my high calling of God in Christ Jesus.' [1 Corinthians 9:24-27; 2 Timothy 4:6-8]' Amen. Amen.
