For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

My Daily Prayers and Readings for 4/22/2011

< >< My Prayer >< >

Like Peter, how often I have failed You, and yet Your love for me is endless as is Your forgiveness. Maybe it is as many say that it is only with age under the sun that we realizes this truth; but I know You were with me early on, and it was I that turn my back on You, and it was my love for mine, as You love me and Yours that You used to bring me home to You. There were many conscious moments I felt You calling, but put You off, thinking not now Lord, I can do it alone, let me do it first, then I will come home; but I know that was not Your will me and thus for me, that could never be, for I was meant for You, to be one with You, separated from the ways under the sun, through the Son. Always seeking the ‘secret of the worker’s life that keeps in tune with You Lord God, all the time.’ Always praying that You will use me, as You used mine to help call others home.

Abba Father in the name of Christ Jesus who lives within me through the Holy Spirit I pray that You create in me a clean heart, and renew a right spirit within me, for my one walk in and with Jesus today. Asking that You bless me and mine in fulfillment of Your will and keep us from evil and pain; and if we get nothing else done this day, let us spend it loving You and others as You love us. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

THE LIGHT THAT FAILS

“We all with open face beholding . . . the glory of the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 3:18

A servant of God must stand so much alone that he never knows he is alone. In the first phases of Christian life disheartenments come, people who used to be lights flicker out, and those who used to stand with us pass away. We have to get so used to it that we never know we are standing alone. “All men forsook me . . notwithstanding the Lord stood with me” (2 Tim. 4:16-17). We must build our faith, not on the fading light, but on the light that never fails. When “big” men go we are sad, until we see that they are meant to go, the one thing that remains is looking in the face of God for ourselves.

Allow nothing to keep you from looking God sternly in the face about yourself and about your doctrine, and every time you preach see that you look God in the face about things first, then the glory will remain all through. A Christian worker is one who perpetually looks in the face of God and then goes forth to talk to people. The characteristic of the ministry of Christ is that of unconscious glory that abides. “Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with Him.”

We are never called on to parade our doubts or to express the hidden ecstasies of our life with God. The secret of the worker’s life is that he keeps in tune with God all the time.

The Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost. Luke 19:10

Thanks to modern technology, you can see and hear the North Korean student’s testimony. Video of it is available both at the Lausanne Congress Web site, http://conversation.lausanne.org/en/conversations/detail/11671 , and on YouTube. (www.youtube.com ). Her testimony of suffering and faith will stir your soul and encourage you in your daily walk. It is a vigorous witness to the power of the gospel and the love of God.
