Take His Yoke Upon You

A.B. Simpson 90 x115by A.B. Simpson

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God—Philippians 4:6

Commit means to hand over, to trust wholly to another. So, if we give our trials to Him, He will carry them. If we walk in righteousness He will carry us through. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time (I Peter 5:6). There are two hands there-God’s hand pressing us down, humbling us, and then God’s hand lifting us up. [Cast] all your care upon him; for he careth for you (1 Peter 5:7).

To Know Jesus

A.B. Simpson 90 x115by A.B. Simpson

That I may know him—Philippians 3:10

Better to know Jesus Himself than to know the truth about Him, for the deep things of God are revealed to us by the Holy Spirit. Paul’s great desire was, that I may know him. Not just know about Him, or the mysteries of the wonderful world, or even the deeper and higher teachings of God, but to enter into the Holy of Holies where Christ is, where the Shekinah is shining, making the place glorious with the holiness of God. it is to enter into the secret of the Lord Himself. it was what Jacob strove for at Peniel when he pleaded with God. God has given us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 4:6). That is the secret. It is the Lord Himself, and nothing else; it is acquaintance with God; it is knowing Jesus Christ as we know no one else.
