The Explanation For Our Difficulties

Oswald Chambers 90x115by Oswald Chambers

. . . that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us . . . —John 17:21

If you are going through a time of isolation, seemingly all alone, read John 17 . It will explain exactly why you are where you are— because Jesus has prayed that you “may be one” with the Father as He is. Are you helping God to answer that prayer, or do you have some other goal for your life? Since you became a disciple, you cannot be as independent as you used to be.

We May Speak For God

Charles Spurgeon 90x115by Charles Spurgeon

Therefore thus saith the Lord, “If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth.” (Jeremiah 15:19)

Poor Jeremiah! Yet why do we say so?

The weeping prophet was one of the choicest servants of God and honored by Him above many.

He was hated for speaking the truth.
