God at Eventide – March 15

Guidance is Guidance

Be still before Me. How often in a crisis man rushes hither and thither. Rush is a sign of weakness. Quiet abiding is a sign of strength.

A few quiet actions, as you are led to do them, and all is accomplished wisely and rightly, more quickly and more effectually than could be done by those who rush about and act feverishly.

Guidance IS Guidance, the being led, the being shown the way. Believe this.

Softly across life’s tumult, comes a gentle Voice, “Peace, be still.” The waves of difficulty will hear. They will fall back. There will be a great calm.

And then the Still Small Voice of Guidance.

March 15 -Your Cross Is You

Remember, you are only an instrument. Not yours to decide how or when or where you act. I plan all that. Make yourself very fit to do My work. All that hinders your activity must be cured.

Mine is the Cross on which the burdens of the world are laid.  How foolish is any one of My disciples who seeks to bear his own burdens, when there is only one place for them – My Cross.

It is like a weary man on a hot and dusty road, bearing a heavy load, when all plans have been made for its carriage.  The road, the scenery, flowers, beauty around – all are lost.

But, My children, you may think I did say, “Take up your cross daily, and follow Me.”

Yes, but the cross given to each one of you is only a cross provided on which you can crucify the self of yours that hinders progress and Joy, and prevents the flow through your being of My invigorating Life and Spirit.

Listen to Me, love Me, joy in Me. Rejoice.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall
keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

Your Weak Points

“Be not overcome of evil, but overcome with good.”

The instruments in your hand for good are invincible against evil, did you but use them.

Every evil you face boldly, in My Spirit, flees at once, ashamed. No evil can look good in the face. Teach to all — that good is stronger than evil. You must answer the challenge of evil.

This spiritual warfare must be ceaselessly waged by My followers. Remember it is not where you are strongest that evil will attack you, but at your weak points. Hence the need to overcome. Be ready to see a weakness in yourself, and attack that until you are victor.

March 14 -God’s Touch

Near, all broodingly near, as some tender mother bird anxious over its young, I am here.  I am your Lord, Life of your body and mind and soul – renewer of your youth.

You do not know all that this time of converse with Me will mean to you.  Did not My servant Isaiah say, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.  They shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

Persevere in all I tell you to do.  The persistent carrying out of My commands, My desires, will unfailingly bring you, as far as spiritual, mental, and temporal things are concerned, to that place where you would be.

If you look back over My Words to you, you will see that My leading has been very gradual, and that only as you have carried out My wishes, have I been able to give you more clear and definite teaching and guidance.

Man’s ecstasy is God’s touch on quickened, responsive, spirit-nerves.  Joy – Joy – Joy

Forget not all his benefits … who satisfieth thy mouth with good
things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.  Psalm 103:2,5


 

Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.    Jude 1:24-25


God At Eventide – March 13

You Are Complete

Be happy in Me. Feel that your life is complete in Me. Know the Joy of a friendship in which those who love Me share.

Know a glad contentment in the security of your protected and guided life. Value the Power that Union with Me gives you.

The greatest power that money, fame, or position of the world can give, still leaves the possessor but as a child beating helpless hands against an impregnable fortress, as compared with the Power of My Spirit, which can render a follower of Mine himself an invincible, an all-conquering force.

March 13 – Spiritualism

Wait before Me, gently breathing in My Spirit.

That Spirit which, if given a free entrance, and not barred out by self, will enable you to do the same works as I did, which being interpreted is, will enable Me to do the same works, and even greater than I did when on earth – through you.

Spiritualism is wrong. No man should ever be a medium for any spirit, other than Mine.

All you should know, all it is well for you to know of My Spirit-Kingdom, I will tell you when and how I see best. The limit is set by your own spiritual development.

Follow My injunctions in all things.

Peace – Peace – Peace.

“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” – Galatians 5:16


Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.    Jude 1:24-25

God Calling Update

God Calling on the Two Listeners site has been hosted by GoDaddy for the past ten years.  Unfortunately, GoDaddy has retired the program used for email delivery of the daily devotionals.  Their replacement product would cost us more than 50 times over what we have been paying.

After searching for a replacement option, we are moving to WordPress.com for hosting the website and for providing daily devotionals to our subscribers.  The format is a little different now.  We’ll be posting the daily devotionals as a blog.  You can subscribe to the blog to get notifications and reminders to link back to the post.  You’ll also be able to add comments and have conversations with other subscribers on the blog pages.

You’ll find buttons on each of the devotionals to allow you to share them in your favorite social media sites.

We are in transition, rebuilding the website and setting up the daily devotionals.  I’m sorry for the late notice, but the increase in pricing was a surprise factor for us.  We’ll move as quickly as possible to get everything rebuilt and running smoothly.  In the meantime, if you have suggestions for improvement or ideas you’d like to see us explore, please add them to the comments on this post.

As always, all the devotionals, Thursday Treasures features, and books on the website are free to you.  We never ask for money, nor do we ever try to sell you anything.

Blessings to you and yours this day and always,

Carol

 

April 3 – Greatness Is Service

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My children, I am here, your waiting Lord, ready at your call. I am among you as one that serveth, Meek and Holy, ready to be used and commanded. Remember that is the finest quality of greatness — service.  I, who could command a universe — I await the commands of My children. Bring Me into everything.

You will find such Joy as the time goes on in speaking to each other of Me, and together climbing higher. Always humble, meek, and lowly in heart.

Learn this — no position — just a servant.

“Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice” Philippians 4:4
