Daily Devotionals  from

The Absoluteness Of Jesus Christ
Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"

The pietistic movements of to-day have none of the rugged reality of the New Testament about them; there is nothing about them that needs the Death of Jesus Christ; all that is required is a pious atmosphere, and prayer and devotion. This type of experience is not supernatural nor miraculous, it did not cost the passion…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening for February 1
Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"

"They shall sing in the ways of the Lord." - Psalm 138:5 The time when Christians begin to sing in the ways of the Lord is when they first lose their burden at the foot of the Cross. Not even the songs of the angels seem so sweet as the first song of rapture which gushes from the inmost soul of the forgiven…… — (click here to read more)

God Is in the Front Line

If Jehovah Himself goes before us, it must be safe to follow. Who can… — (click here to read more)

Devotional for 'Kislev 18'
Voice of the Lord

Yeshua told us that HaSatan (the Adversary) is the father of lies and that the whole world is under his influence. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that there is a fundamental deception that underlies the world system. It constantly promises something that it is unable to deliver—satisfaction. The illusion is that whatever we… — (click here to read more)

Standing at the End
Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life

Professional golf has its showcases. Most are what have been dubbed, "The Majors," four tournaments which have evolved to represent the finest of what championship golf is all about.

The Great Divide
'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes

We continue meditating on the fact that the Christian faith is unique in that it is the Word not of a prophet but of the Son of God Himself. And when I refer to the Son of God I mean also God the Son. The Son is as much God as God Himself. One commentator says of the verse before us today: "If I were to put my finger on…… — (click here to read more)

Do it
"Today's Word" with Skip Moen

Do it - In Greek this is the word poiesate. It is from the verb poieo that means "to make, to do, to cause, to bring about, to produce." This verb covers a lot of ground. It is the verb used whenever people want to get something done. The important part of the word here is that it is the past tense,…… — (click here to read more)

Morning / Evening Devotional — November 30
Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer

What, then, is that world against which we are warned by the apostles? That world whose friendship constitutes spiritual adultery, the love of which stands in opposition to the love of God? It is the familiar world of sinful human society which swells about and beneath us as the waters of the flood once surged and churned around the ark of Noah.… … — (click here to read more)

The Believer's Daily Remembrancer

The Lord God Omnipotent reigneth. - Revelation 19:6

Our God is the author of all good, the only object of religious worship and fear, the infinite, all-controlling Being. He can do all things, and do all things with ease, swiftness, and precision.

He is on the throne; His reign is merciful, just, glorious. He reigns universally over every empire,…
