A Greater Sense of the Possible (February 19)

A Greater Sense of the Possible (February 19)

God is willing (and eager) to lift us to planes higher than we can yet imagine. Our need is for a bigger desire, a greater sense of what can happen if we’re willing to submit to God as He removes from our hearts the things that hold us back.

Worthy to be Loved (February 18)

Worthy to be Loved (February 18)

We must delight in God’s holiness. We are to love Him because He is our Creator, simply for His own sake. Love’s joy has to do with giving, not getting. The moment our main focus shifts from the Beloved to ourselves, true joy begins to disappear.

Worthy to be Praised (February 17)

Worthy to be Praised (February 17)

The sense of rightness and goodness present in moments of real worship ought to tell us that the adoration of God fills a very deep need within us. We have been made such that praising God is as much a joy to experience as it is a duty to fulfill.

Glory and Grandeur (February 16)

Glory and Grandeur (February 16)

God’s majesty is displayed in every work of His creation. There is nothing about the natural environment that God has designed to surround and support us that does not show His greatness — if we have eyes to see and hearts to understand.

The Ultimate Paradigm (February 15)

The Ultimate Paradigm (February 15)

“It is impossible to keep our moral practices sound and our inward attitudes right while our idea of God is erroneous or inadequate. If we would bring back spiritual power to our lives, we must begin to think of God more nearly as He is” (Tozer).

An Important Redefinition (February 14)

An Important Redefinition (February 14)

We need to redefine our personal concept of what greatness is and where it comes from. It is nothing less powerful than God’s gentleness that can make us great. And when it has done so, our own gentleness will be the strongest part of our strength.

God Not Only Gives, He Graciously Receives (February 13)

God Not Only Gives, He Graciously Receives (February 13)

Whatever we give is only a giving back to God — nevertheless, it is true that we are able to give of ourselves to God. And although our gifts fall short of the perfection He deserves, the wondrous truth is that God is still ready to receive them.

The Love of a Soul Near Its Home (February 12)

The Love of a Soul Near Its Home (February 12)

As we age, we know we’re getting very close to our heavenly home — and we cherish the love of a Father who waits for us there. “One sweetly solemn thought comes to me o’er and o’er: today I’m nearer to my home than e’er I’ve been before.”

The Face of Friendship (February 11)

The Face of Friendship (February 11)

As rebels against God’s love, we are right to fear the consequences of our rebellion. But the wonder of God’s character is the grace by which He is willing and able to make us His friends once again. He is eager to welcome us back home.

On Being a Person ‘After God’s Own Heart’ (February 10)

On Being a Person ‘After God’s Own Heart’ (February 10)

We must genuinely respect God’s will. As a man after God’s own heart, David could be counted on to trust God’s wisdom implicitly, carry out God’s instructions faithfully, and depend on God’s help humbly. We must choose to have the same character.
