Let God Choose

Vance Havnerby Vance Havner

After Lot “chose him all the plain of Jordan” (Genesis 13:11), God told Abram to look in all directions, for all that he saw was to be his. Lot chose for himself; Abram chose to let God choose for him. The greatest choice a man ever makes is to let God make his choice. God’s people can afford to let Lot choose first; we are going to inherit the whole earth anyway. God is our Rewarder but He is also our Reward, even as He said to Abram, “I am…thy exceeding great reward” (Genesis 15:1). Blessed is the man who stops making a Santa Claus out of the Lord, forever asking for this and that, and comes to that better place where he can sing: Once earthly joy I craved, Sought peace and rest; Now Thee alone I seek, Give what is best.

God’s Heroes: Noah

C.T. Studdby C.T. Studd

Excerpt from Hero or Chocolate Soldier?

God Never Was A Chocolate Manufacturer, And Never Will Be. God’s men are always heroes. In Scripture, you can trace their giant foot-tracks down the sands of time.

Noah walked with God, he didn’t only preach righteousness, he acted it. He went through water and didn’t melt. He breasted the current of the popular opinion of his day, scorning alike the hatred and ridicule of the scoffers who mocked at the thought of there being but one way of salvation. He warned the unbelieving and, entering the ark himself, didn’t open the door an inch when once God had shut it. A real hero untainted by the fear of man.

Learn to scorn the praise of men.
Learn to lose with God;
Jesus won the world thro’ shame!
And beckons us His road.
