Scripture reading: Joshua 1:9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God [is] with thee whithersoever thou goest.
May those words be of encouragement to us as we meet the difficulties of trying to follow God, that we may take courage as Joshua was also commanded. Read the rest of this entry

Scripture Reading: Psalm 25:8-9 Good and upright [is] the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way. The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
May God guide us in our understanding of these Scriptures that we may learn what it means to be the meek of the earth.
“Breathe on me , Breath of God until with Thee I will one will to do and to endure. Breathe on me until I am wholly Thine, until this earthly part of me glows with Thy fire divine.”

In our last study ‘Gods Letters of Love through the Spirit of Prophecy’, there were letters that didn’t sound like love.

After the close of the Conference I began to ask the LORD for insight into the areas of my life where I still worship at the shrine of Baal. Not too many days after I was reading my Bible for morning devotion where some Scriptures suddenly clicked together with other passages I had read and as they say, the penny dropped. So with this inspiration I researched the Spirit of Prophecy on the subject and hence my investigations on Birthdays expanded into this study. The lives of people recorded in the scriptures are for our learning. The Bible is true and it records all their faults. As Corinthians says, their lives are examples for those of us who are living in the last moments of time. Read the rest of this entry
