Morning and Evening

         “We live unto the Lord.” —Romans 14:8
If God had willed it, each of us might have entered heaven at the moment of conversion. It was not necessary for our preparation for immortality that we should tarry here. It is possible for a man to be [go] to heaven, and to be found meet to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in light, though he has but just believed in Jesus. It is true that our sanctification is a long. It is also a continued process[.]  [We] shall not [aquire] perfected till we lay aside our bodies and enter within the veil[.] Why then are we here? Would God keep his children out of paradise a single moment longer than was necessary? Why is the army of the living God still on the battle-field when one charge might give them the victory? Why are his children still wandering hither and thither through a maze, when a solitary word from his lips would bring them into the centre of thei…

The next best thing to do


Seek if you have not Found. “Seek, and ye shall find.” Luke 11:9.

“Ye ask, and receive not because ye ask amiss.” If you ask for things from life instead of from God, you ask amiss, that is, you ask from a desire for self-realization.

Ps 55:22
He that taketh his own cares upon himself loads himself with an uneasy burden. The fear of what may come, an expectation of what will come, [a]desire of what will not come, and the inability to redress all these, must [all]needs bring him continual torment. I will cast my cares upon God. He hath bidden me. They cannot hurt Him: He can redress them.
