November 17 – Quiet Lives

“Well done, thou good and faithful servant …
enter into the joy of thy Lord.”       Matthew 25:21

These words are whispered in the ears of many whom the world would pass by unrecognizing.  Not to the great, and the world-famed, are these words said so often, but to the quiet followers who serve Me unobtrusively, yet faithfully, who bear their cross bravely, with a smiling face to the world.  Thank Me for the quiet lives.

These words speak not only of the passing into that fuller Spirit Life.  Duty faithfully done for Me does mean entrance into a Life of Joy – My Joy, the Joy of your Lord.  The world may never see it, the humble, patient, quiet service, but I see it, and My reward is not earth’s fame, earth’s wealth, earth’s pleasures, but the Joy Divine.

Whether here, or there, in the earth-world, or in the spirit-world, this is My reward. Joy.  The Joy that carries an exquisite thrill in the midst of pain and poverty and suffering.  That Joy of which I said no man could take it from you.  Earth has no pleasure, no reward, that can give man that Joy.  It is known only to My lovers and My friends.

This Joy may come, not as the reward of activity in My service.  It may be the reward of patient suffering, bravely borne.

Suffering, borne with Me, must in time bring Joy, as does all real contact with Me.  So live with Me in that Kingdom of Joy , My Kingdom, the Gateway into which may be service, it may be suffering.

Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.
Isaiah 12:3

November 16 – Union Is Power

For where two or three are gathered together in my name,
there am I in the midst of them.       Matthew 18:20

Claim that promise always.  Know it true that when two of My lovers meet I am the Third.  Never limit that promise.

When you two are together in My Name, united by one bond in My Spirit, I am there.  Not only when you meet to greet Me, and to hear My Voice.

Think what this means in Power.  It is again the lesson of the Power that follows two united to serve Me.

 Let them make me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.
Exodus 25:8

November 15 – By My Spirit

Man is apt to think that once in time only was My Miracle-working Power in action.  That is not so.  Wherever man trusts wholly in Me, and leaves to Me the choosing of the very day and hour, then there is My miracle-working Power as manifest, as marvelously manifest today, as ever it was when I was on earth, as ever it was to set My Apostles free, or to work miracles of wonder and healing through them.

Trust in Me. Have a boundless faith in Me, and you will see, and seeing, will give Me all the glory.  Remember, and say often to yourselves, “not by might, nor by Power, but by My Spirit, saith the Lord.”

Dwell much in thought upon all I accomplished on earth, and then say to yourselves, “He, our Lord, our Friend, could accomplish this now in our lives.”

Apply these miracles to your present day need, and know that your Help and Salvation are sure.

And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working 
with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Mark 16:20

November 14 – Devious Ways

Life is not easy, My children.  Man has made of it not what My Father meant it to be.

Ways that were meant to be straight paths have been made by man into ways devious and evil, filled with obstacles and stones of difficulty.

And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not;
I will lead them in paths 
that they have not known:
I will make darkness light before them 

and crooked things straight.  Isaiah 42:16

November 13 – Every Problem Solved

Man has such strange ideas of the meaning of My invitation “Come unto Me.”  Too often has it been interpreted as an urge to pay a duty owed to a Creator or a debt owed to a Savior.

The “Come unto Me” holds in it a wealth of meaning far surpassing even that.  “Come unto Me” for the solution of every problem, for the calming of every fear, for all you need – physical, mental, spiritual.

Sick, come to Me for health.  Homeless, ask Me for a home. Friendless, claim a friend.  Hopeless, a refuge.

“Come unto Me” for everything.

Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what
 things you have need of, before ye ask him.  Matthew 6:8

November 12 – The Voiceless Cry

Jesus, hear us, and let our cry come unto Thee.

That voiceless cry, that comes from anguished hearts, is heard above all the music of Heaven.

It is not the arguments of theologians that solve the problems of a questioning heart, but the cry of that heart to Me, and the certainty that I have heard.

Hear the right, O Lord, attend unto my cry, give ear unto 
my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.  Psalm 17:1

November 11 – Heaven’s Colors

Looking back you will see that every step was planned.  Leave all to Me.  Each stone in the mosaic fits into the perfect pattern, designed by the Master Artist.

It is all so wonderful!

But the colors are of Heaven’s hues, so that your eyes could not bear to gaze on the whole, until you are beyond the veil.

So, stone by stone, you see, and trust the pattern to the Designer.

When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and 
when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.  Proverbs 4:12

God Calling – Nov 10

November 10 – New Forces

Remember that life’s difficulties and troubles are not intended to arrest your progress, but to increase your speed.  You must call new forces, new powers into action.

Whatever it is must be surmounted, overcome.  Remember this.

It is as a race. Nothing must daunt you. Do not let a difficulty conquer you.  You must conquer it.

My strength will be there awaiting you.  Bring all your thought, all your power, into action.  Nothing is too small to be faced and overcome.  To push small difficulties aside is to be preparing big troubles.

Rise to conquer.  It is the path of victory I would have you tread.  There can be no failure with Me.

“Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding Joy …”

This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him,
and saved him out of all his troubles  Psalm 34:6

God Calling – Nov 9

November 9 – Wonderful Friendship

Think of Me as a Friend, but realize, too, the wonder of the Friendship.  As soon as man gives Me not only worship and honor, obedience, allegiance, but loving understanding, then he becomes My Friend, even as I am his.

What I can do for you. Yes! but also what we can do for each other.  What you can do for Me.

Your service becomes so different when you feel I count on your great friendship to do this or that for Me…

Dwell more, dwell much, on this thought of you as My friends, and of the sweetness of My knowing where I can turn for Love, for understanding, for help.

Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.  John 15:14

November 8 – Wipe The Slate

But this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and
reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark
… Philippians 3:13,14

Forget the past. Remember only its glad days. Wipe the slate of your remembrance with Love, which will erase all that is not confirmed in Love.  You must forget your failures, your failures and those of others.  Wipe them out of the book of your remembrance.

I did not die upon the Cross for man to bear the burdens of his sins himself.  “Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree.”

If you forget not the sins of others, and I bear them, then you add to My sorrows.

And when ye stand praying forgive, if you have aught against any: 
that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you 
your trespasses.  Mark 11:25
