The Rain of God

Lord, you send the rain,
Giving water to the church,
To wash us and to cleanse us,
To quench our endless thirst

The rain that falls on us
Is often what we're needing,
To refresh us and restore us,
A time of awesome blessing

For often we may feel
That we are in a drought,
In need of refreshing waters
When we are running out

For with the rain of God
Comes the growth that we need
And life springs forth from it
Just like a little seed

For if we don't have rain,
How can our spirits grow
And flourish to produce
The crop that God has sowed?

So rain on us, dear God,
Draw us deep into your spring,
So our thirst can be satisfied
When we come and freely drink.

Delilah

A Philistine woman who dwelt in the valley of Sorek (Judges 16:4-20). She was bribed by the "lords of the Philistines" to obtain from Samson the secret of his strength and the means of overcoming it (Judges 16:4-18). She tried on three occasions to obtain from him this secret in vain. On the fourth occasion she wrung it from him. She made him sleep upon her knees, and then called the man who was waiting to help her; who "cut off the seven locks of his head," and so his "strength went from him."

Dead to Sin


When the devil tries to deliver a package of sin to your door, you can refuse delivery.

Psalm 94:14

Absalom

Absalom was noted for his personal beauty and for the extra-ordinary profusion of the hair of his head (2 Samuel 14:25,26). The first public act of his life was the blood-revenge he executed against Amnon, David's eldest son, who had basely wronged Absalom's sister Tamar. This revenge was executed at the time of the festivities connected with a great sheep-shearing at Baal-hazor. David's other sons fled from the place in horror, and brought the tidings of the death of Amnon to Jerusalem. Alarmed for the consequences of the act, Absalom fled to his grandfather at Geshur, and there abode for three years (2 Samuel 3:3; 13:23-38).

The Care of the Poor

The Lord will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing. (Psalm 41:3)

Remember that this is a promise to the man who considers the poor. Are you one of these? Then take home the text.

See how in the hour of sickness the God of the poor will bless the man who cares for the poor! The everlasting arms shall stay up his soul as friendly hands and downy pillows stay up the body of the sick. How tender and sympathizing is this image; how near it brings our God to our infirmities and sicknesses! Whoever heard this of the old heathen Jove, or of the gods of India or China! This is language peculiar to the God of Israel; He it is who deigns to become nurse and attendant upon good men. If He smites with one hand, He sustains with the other. Oh, it is blessed fainting when one falls upon the Lord's own bosom and is born thereon' Grace is the best of restoratives; divine love is the safest stimulant for the languishing patient; it makes the soul strong as a giant, even when the bones are breaking through the skin. No physician like the Lord, no tonic like His promise, no wine like His love.

If the reader has failed in his duty to the poor, let him see what he is losing and at once become their friend and helper.

-C.H. Spurgeon

Spider

Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider's web. -Job 8:14

The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces. -Proverbs 30:28

They hatch cockatrice' eggs, and weave the spider's web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper. -Isaiah 59:5

Raising Children For The Lord

It's such an awesome privilege
And a big responsibility,
God has given to us as parents
This wonderful opportunity
To raise our precious children
And instil into their lives
The wonder and amazement
Of the love of Jesus Christ
So they will learn to trust in Him
And worship and to pray,
To love others with the love of God
And to honour and obey
As parents, we've been entrusted
To raise them in God's love
To be there to encourage them
When they feel like giving up

And to be there just to listen
When life deals some painful blows
And comfort them when they feel afraid
And when tears begin to flow
To share with them those joyful times,
The precious moments in their lives
When doors begin to open up
And opportunities arise

Through everything they face in life,
Let's be there cheering them on,
For we only have one chance at this,
For childhood soon is gone
So let's rely on Father God
To raise them to become
Men or Women who trust in Him
And in His precious Son.

Pass the Salt


Our presentation of God’s truth to the world should not be done without a generous sprinkling of God’s grace.

Deuteronomy 7:9

God's Promise
I am faithful to keep My covenant of kindness to a thousand generations.

I believe that we are being convinced more and more that God is faithful and merciful and kind, and that He keeps His covenant of kindness to a thousand generations. The more we believe this promise to be true, the more we will yield to His love in our hearts and rest in His goodness.

Bible Verse
Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; -Deuteronomy 7:9

Hebrews 13:5-6

I confess He will never leave me nor forsake me. I possess the presence of God each step I take.

5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

"A law unto themselves"

For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: -Romans 2:14

Sparrow

Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. -Matthew 10:29

Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God. -Psalm 84:3

I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top. -Psalm 102:7

Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? -Luke 12:6

As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come. -Proverbs 26:2

Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. -Matthew 10:31

Deborah

A prophetess, "wife" (woman?) of Lapidoth. Jabin, the king of Hazor, had for twenty years held Israel in degrading subjection. The spirit of patriotism seemed crushed out of the nation. In this emergency Deborah roused the people from their lethargy. Her fame spread far and wide. She became a "mother in Israel" (Judges 4:6,14; 5:7), and "the children of Israel came up to her for judgment" as she sat in her tent under the palm tree "between Ramah and Bethel."

The Eternal Virtues Of God

Concentrate on things that are real,
Things of God and not of this world
Worldly hopes and dreams will fade,
Along with the flowers that wither away
The better things worth thinking of
Are the treasures found in the word of God
Things that are true, noble and right,
Wholesome and pure, lovely and kind
These things have virtue and deserve our praise
They are eternal treasures that will never fade
These are the qualities we should all long for
And are the lasting treasures of the Lord
For flowers do fade and eventually die,
But God's holy word remains forever alive.

Abel

The second son of Adam and Eve. He was put to death by his brother Cain (Genesis 4:1-16). Guided by the instruction of their father, the two brothers were trained in the duty of worshipping God. "And in process of time" (marg. "at the end of days", i.e., on the Sabbath) each of them offered up to God of the first-fruits of his labours. Cain, as a husbandman, offered the fruits of the field; Abel, as a shepherd, of the firstlings of his flock. "The Lord had respect unto Abel and his offering; but unto Cain and his offering he had not respect" (Genesis 4:3-5).

Snail

And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole. -Leviticus 11:30

Ridin' Shotgun


We can enjoy life more abundantly when we maintain a close relationship with Jesus. But if we are apart from Him, we become vulnerable to the thief, who would seek to steal, kill, and destroy.

Abraham

Father of a multitude, son of Terah, named (Genesis 11:27) before his older brothers Nahor and Haran, because he was the heir of the promises. Till the age of seventy, Abram sojourned among his kindred in his native country of Chaldea. He then, with his father and his family and household, quitted the city of Ur, in which he had hitherto dwelt, and went some 300 miles north to Haran, where he abode fifteen years. The cause of his migration was a call from God (Acts 7:2-4). There is no mention of this first call in the Old Testament; it is implied, however, in Genesis 12. While they tarried at Haran, Terah died at the age of 205 years. Abram now received a second and more definite call, accompanied by a promise from God (Genesis 12:1,2); whereupon he took his departure, taking his nephew Lot with him, "not knowing whither he went" (Hebrews 11:8). He trusted implicitly to the guidance of Him who had called him.
