June 30 – Understand Them
Take joy wherever you go. You have been much blessed. You are being much blessed.
Such stores of blessing are awaiting you in the months and years that lie ahead. Pass every blessing on.
Love can and does go round the world, passed on the God-currents from one to the other.
Shed a little sunshine in the heart of one, that one is cheered to pass it on, and so My vitalizing joy-giving message goes.
Be transmitters these days. Love and Laugh. Cheer all. Love all.
Always seek to understand others and you cannot fail to love them.
See Me in the dull, the uninteresting, the sinful, the critical, the miserable.
See Me in the laughter of children and the sweetness of old age, in the courage of youth and the patience of man and womanhood.
The kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure … the which when a man
hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth
all that he hath, and buyeth that field. Matthew 13:44
June 29 – My Will – Your Joy
Our Lord and our God. Lead us, we beseech Thee. Lead us and keep us.
You can never go beyond My Love and Care. Remember that. No evil can befall you. Circumstances I bless and use must be the right ones for you.
But I know always that the first step is to lay your will before Me as an offering, ready that I shall do what is best, sure that, if you trust Me, what I do for you will be best.
Your second step is to be sure, and to tell me so, that I am Powerful enough to do everything (“The hearts of kings are in My rule and governance”), that no miracle is impossible with me (“With God all things are possible” and “I and My Father are one”).
Then leave all with Me. Glad to leave all your affairs in a Master Hand. Sure of safety and protection. Remember you cannot see the future. I can.
You could not bear it. So only little by little can I reveal it to you. Accept My Will and it will bring you joy.
The Lord is thy keeper;
the Lord is thy shade
upon thy right hand.
June 28 – Table of Delights
It has not been in vain this training and teaching time. The time of suppression, repression, depression is changed now into a time of glorious expression.
Life is flooded through and through with Joy and Gladness. Indeed I have prepared a table of delights, a feast of all good things for you.
Indeed your cup runneth over and you can feel from the very depth of your heart. “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.”
All the days of the afflicted are evil:
but he that is of a merry heart
hath a continual feast.
June 27 – No Self-Reproach
The Eternal Arms shelter you. “Underneath are the Everlasting Arms.” This promise is to those who rise above the earth-life and seek to soar higher, to the Kingdom of Heaven.
You must not feel the burden of your failure. Go on in faith, the clouds will clear, and the way will lighten – the path becomes less stony with every step you take. So run that you may obtain. A rigid doing of the simple duties, and success will crown your efforts.
I had no words of reproach for any I healed. The man was whole and free who had wrecked his physical being by sin – whose palsy I healed.
The woman at the well was not overwhelmed by My “Thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband.”
The woman taken in adultery was told “Neither do I condemn thee: go and sin no more.” She was not told to bear the burden of the consciousness of her sin …
Remember now abideth these three, Faith, Hope, and Charity. Faith is your attitude towards Me. Charity your attitude towards your fellow man, but as necessary, is Hope, which is confidence in yourself to succeed.
There is therefore now no condemnation
to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk
not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
June 26 – Do Not Rush
Learn in the little daily things of life to delay action until you get My Guidance …
So many lives lack poise. For in the momentous decisions and the big things of life, they ask My help but into the small things they rush alone.
By what you do in the small things those around you are most often antagonized or attracted.
They soon forget his works;
they waited not for his counsel.
June 25 – God’s Friendship
I am your Friend. The Companion of the dreary ways of life.
I rob those ways of their grayness and horror. I transform them. Even in earthly friendships the common way, the weary way, the steep way, may seem a way to Heaven if the presence of some loved human friend transforms them.
Let the Sabbath calm enwrap your minds and hearts. Let it be a rest from the worry and fret of life, a halt by the busy highway when you seek some rest and shade.
Have you ever realized the wonder of the friendship you can have with Me? Have you ever thought what it means to be able to summon at will the God of the World?
Even with a privileged visitor to an earthly king there is the palace antechamber, and the time must be at the pleasure of the king.
But to My subjects I have given the right to enter My Presence when they will, nay more they can summon Me to bedside, to workshop – and I am there.
Could Divine Love do more? Your nearest earthly friend cannot be with you on the instant. Your Lord, your Master, your Divine Friend — Yes
When men seek to worship Me they think of the worlds I rule over, of creation, of mighty law and order – and then they feel the awe that precedes worship.
To you I say feel awe, feel the desire to worship Me in wondering amazement. But think too of the mighty, tender, humble condescension of My Friendship. Think of Me in the little things of everyday life.
For who hath despised the day of small things?
June 24 – When Guidance Tarries
As I prompt you – act. When you have no clear guidance, then go forward quietly along the path of duty I have set before you.
No fear, no panic, quietly doing your daily duty.
This attitude of faith will receive its reward, as surely as the acting upon My direct Guidance.
Rejoice in the sense of security that is yours.
Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and
afterward receive me to glory. Psalm 73:24
June 23 – Cling To Me
Cling to Me until the life from Me – the Divine Life, by that very contact, flows into your being and revives your fainting spirit.
Become recharged. When weary do as I did on earth – Sit by the well. Rest.
Rest and gain power and strength and the work too will come to you as it came to Me.
Rest till every care-thought has gone, and then let the Tide of Love and Joy flow in.
And he said unto them, Come ye
yourselves apart into a
desert place, and rest a while.
June 22 – Your Red Sea
Go forward fearlessly.
Do not think about the Red Sea that lies ahead.
Be very sure that when you come to it the waters will part and you will pass over to your promised land of freedom.
The wicked flee when no man pursueth;
but the righteous are bold as a lion.
June 21 – See As I See
O Lord, we praise Thee. Bless us, we beseech Thee.
I bless you. I promise you release. Joy in Me. You shall be shielded from the storm.
Wonders have unfolded. Just to come before Me and stay for a while in My Presence – this must strengthen and help you.
Learn of Me. The only way for so many in My poor world to keep calm, sane, is to have the mind which is in Jesus Christ. The mind which is in Me.
That mind you can never obtain by reasoning, or by reading, but only by living with Me and sharing My Life.
Think much of Me. Speak much of Me. See others as I see them. Let nothing less satisfy you.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy,
and my burden is light.
