February 13 – Near The Goal

In a race it is not the start that hurts, not even the pace of the long stretch. It is when the goal is in sight that heart and nerves and courage and muscles are strained almost beyond human endurance, almost to the breaking point.

So with you now the goal is in sight, you need your final cry to Me. Can you not see by the nerve and heart rack of the past few days that your race is nearly run? Courage, courage. Heed My voice of encouragement. Remember that I am by your side, spurring you on to victory.

In the annals of heaven, the saddest records are those that tell of the many who ran well, with brave stout hearts, until in sight of the goal, of victory, and then their courage failed. The whole host of heaven longed to cry out how near the end was, to implore the last spurt, but they fell out, never to know until the last day of revealing, how near they were to victory.

Would that they had listened to Me in the silence as you two meet with Me. They would have known. There must be the listening ear, as well as the still small voice.

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due 
season we shall reap, if we faint not.  Galatians 6:9

February 12 – See Me Everywhere Still

See Me in all your daily life.

See Me in the little happenings.  Recognize me as the source of every act of kindness and Love.

Feel My Power with you when you face any task or danger.  Know My consoling tenderness in every sorrow and disappointment.

I, the Master-Painter, can work into the ordinary colors of beauty until you see the befitting background for the joy and ecstasy of the radiance I give.

February 12 – Meet Me Everywhere

Life is really consciousness of Me.

Have no fear. A very beautiful future lies before you. Let it be a new life, a new existence, in which in every single happening, event, plan, you are conscious of Me.

“And this is Life Eternal, that we might know Thee, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent.”

Get this ever-consciousness and you have Eternal Life — the Life of the Ages. Be in all things led by the Spirit of God and trust Me in all. And the consciousness of Me must bring Joy. Give Me not only trust, but gladness.

For as many as our led by the Spirit of God, 
they are the Sons of God.  Romans 8:14

February 11 – No Remorse

I seek to save you not only from falling into sin, but from the overwhelming remorse that follows the realization of sin.

I know that for frail man this is too great a burden.  So when you let it overwhelm you, you nullify My saving Power.

I seek to save you from oppression and depression too.  I bid you leave all to follow Me.  That is, leave the sins and the failures of the past.

Out of the shadow into the sunlight of My Love and Salvation you must go.

February 11 – The Difficult Path

Your path is difficult, difficult for you both. There is no work in life so hard as waiting, and yet I say wait. Wait until I show you My Will. Proof it is of My Love and of My certainty of your true discipleship, that I give you both hard tasks.

Again, I say wait. All motion is more easy than calm waiting. So many of My followers have marred their work and hindered the progress of My Kingdom by activity.

Wait. I will not overtry your spiritual strength. You are both like two persons, helpless on a raft in mid-ocean. But, lo! there cometh towards you One walking on the waters, like unto the Son of Man. When He comes and you receive Him, it will be with you, as it was with My Disciples when I was on earth, that straightway you will be at the place where you would be.

All your toil in rowing and all your activity could not have accomplished the journey so soon. Oh, wait and trust. Wait, and be not afraid.

Wait on the Lord,
and keep his way.
Psalm 37:34

February 10 – Your Power

In your hands I have placed a wonderful force against evil.  You cannot realize as yet the mighty weapon you wield.

Make known the Power of Prayer.  A force so wonderful, so miracle-working, that when it is united with a will that seeks only My Will and with a Friendship with Me that calms, enobles and enriches, then nothing can withstand its Power.

February 10 – The Life-Line

I am your Savior, your Savior from sins’ thralls, your Savior from all the cares and troubles of life, your Savior from disease.

I speak in all to you both. Look to Me for salvation. Trust in Me for help. Did not My servant of old say, “All Thy waves and Thy billows are gone over me?” But not all the waters of affliction could drown him. For of him was it true, “He came from above, He took me, He drew me out of many waters.”

The life-line, the line of rescue, is the line from the soul to God, faith, and power. It is a strong line, and no soul can be overwhelmed who is linked to Me by it. Trust, trust, trust. Never be afraid.

Think of My trees stripped of their beauty, pruned, cut, disfigured, bare, but through the dark seemingly dead branches flows silently, secretly, the spirit-life-sap, till, lo! with the sun of Spring comes new life, leaves, bud, blossom, fruit, but oh! fruit a thousand times better for the pruning.

Remember that you are in the hands of the Master-Gardener. He makes no mistakes about His pruning. Rejoice. Joy is the Spirit’s reaching out to say its thanks to Me. It is the new life-sap of the tree, reaching out to Me to find such beautiful expression later. So never cease to joy. Rejoice.

From the end of the earth will I cry onto thee, when my heart is 
overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.  Psalm 61:2

February 9 – All Will Be Well

In humble anticipation — wait.

Wait as a servant anticipating orders.  Wait as a lover eager to note a need, and to supply it.

Wait for My Commands; wait for My Guidance; wait for My Supply.  All will come.

In such a life you may well be of good cheer.  Can a life be dull when always there is that watchful expectancy, anticipation of glad surprise, that wonder of fulfillment, that Joy of full supply?

God At Eventide – February 8

February 8 – Future All Unknown

Probe not into the future.  Prophecies are not for you.  Be a humble follower in the crowd.  Live with Me.  Ponder My Words, My Teaching, My Actions.

Soon you will find that more and more opportunities of speaking of Me will present themselves.  Do not make them.  They will proceed from the pressure of inward growth, and not from outward stress.
