We Need A Lift

Vance Havner 90x115by Vance Havner

“Looking unto Jesus…” Hebrews 12:2

We need to lift up our eyes, our heads, our hands, our voices. All is commanded in the Scriptures. There are too many downcast disciples, eyes down; too many defeated saints, heads drooped; too many with hands not lifted in worship; too many silent saints who need to cry aloud and spare not, lifting their voices like a trumpet. We need a great uplifting!

God’s Call And Difficulty

J. Sidlow Baxter 90x115by J. Sidlow Baxter

God’s call may lead us to a season of difficulty and opposition from the enemy (Matthew 4:1). Trials do not indicate that we missed God or somehow lost our way. The very thing that God most desires to accomplish in us and through us is the very thing that the kingdom of darkness wants to oppose. We should not allow difficulties and discouragements to prevent us from obeying the call of God. If we obey and trust God’s call, the Lord will be glorified by our obedience and our faith will grow exponentially.
