February 8 – On Me Alone
I am your Lord, your Supply. You must rely on Me. Trust to the last uttermost limit. Trust and be not afraid. You must depend on Divine Power only. I have not forgotten you. Your help is coming. You shall know and realize My Power.
Endurance is faith tried almost to breaking point. You must wait, and trust, and hope, and joy in Me. You must not depend on man but on Me, on Me, your Strength, your Help, your Supply.
This is the great test. Am I your supply or not? Every great work for Me has had to have this great test-time.
Possess your souls in patience and rejoice. You must wait until I show the way. Heaven itself cannot contain more joy than that soul knows, when, after the waiting-test, I crown it Victor, but no disciple of Mine can be victor, who does not wait until I give the order to start. You cannot be anxious if you know that I am your supply.
But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be
perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James 1:4
February 7 – The Way Of Progress
Impress upon all that growth is one of the laws of My Kingdom.
However long your span of life on earth, it can never be too long for growth and progress.
Be ever seeking My Will for you. Not a new religion, nor the right religion, but — My Will. Then all will be well and growth will follow.
February 7 – Light Ahead
Trust and be not afraid. Life is full of wonder. Open child-trusting eyes to all I am doing for you. Fear not.
Only a few steps more and then My Power shall be seen and known. You are, yourselves, now walking in the tunnel-darkness. Soon, you yourselves shall be lights to guide feet that are afraid.
The cries of your sufferings have pierced even to the ears of God himself — My Father in Heaven, your Father in Heaven. To hear, with God, is to answer. For only a cry from the heart, a cry to Divine Power to help human weakness, a trusting cry, ever reaches the Ear Divine.
Remember, trembling heart, that with God, to hear is to answer. Your prayers, and they have been many, are answered.
Before they call, I will answer; and while they
are yet speaking, I will hear. Isaiah 65:24
February 6 – True Humility
If I, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet, you ought also to wash one another’s feet.
How My followers have misunderstood this. They interpret the required attitude to be one of service. In service there can be condescension, there can be a total lack of humility.
I sought to teach a lesson to those who would approach Me to partake of that wonderful Union with Me, vouchsafed to those who worthily eat of My Flesh and drink of My Blood.
I desired to teach them that they must come to Me in the Spirit of humility towards others. No sense of superiority, especially Spiritual superiority. True humility. Learn this lesson in daily Companionship with Me. “For I am meek and lowly of heart.”
February 6 – God’s Longing
To the listening ear I speak, to the waiting heart I come. Sometimes, I may not speak. I may ask you merely to wait in My Presence, to know that I am with you.
Think of the multitudes who thronged Me when I was on earth all eager for something. Eager to be healed, or taught, or fed.
Think as I supplied their many wants, and granted their manifold requests, what it meant to Me, to find amid the crowd, some one or two, who followed Me just to be near Me, just to dwell in My Presence. How some longing of the Eternal Heart was satisfied thereby.
Comfort Me, a while, by letting Me know that you would seek Me just to dwell in My Presence, to be near Me, not even for teaching, not for material gain, not even for a message — but for Me. The longing of the human heart to be loved for itself is something caught from the Great Divine Heart.
I bless you. Bow your heads.
I wait for the Lord, my soul does wait, and
in his word do I hope. Psalm 130:5
February 5 – The Aching Spirit
Just as I said that those who hungered and thirsted after righteousness would be filled, so I say to you — none ever longed to know Me better and remained unsatisfied. Even with your imperfect knowledge, you are daily realizing how true this is.
Man dwells so much on material things that he fails to grasp the Spiritual laws that never fail.
For all spirit-longing there is fulfillment. I soothe the aching Spirit.
You think I answer your prayer. Yes, but the answer was there, awaiting the prayer.
You will see these simple Truths more and more as you live with Me; truths hidden from the wise but revealed to the little ones of the Kingdom
February 5 – You Shall Know
Walk with Me. I will teach you. Listen to Me and I will speak. Continue to meet Me, in spite of all opposition and every obstacle, in spite of the days when you may hear no voice, and there may come no intimate heart-to-heart telling.
As you persist in this, and make a life-habit of it, in many marvelous ways I will reveal My will to you. You shall have more sure knowing of both the present and the future. But that will be only the reward of the regular coming to meet Me.
Life is a school. There are many teachers. Not to everyone do I come personally. Believe literally that the problems and difficulties of your lives can be explained by Me more clearly and effectually than by any other.
If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine,
whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. John 7:17
February 4 – Wise Rest
Rest should play a large part in the lives of My followers, for tiredness and physical strain can cause man to lose his consciousness of My Presence.
Then the Light that banishes evil seems to be withdrawn — never by deliberate act of Mine, but as the result of man’s attitude towards Me. Ponder on this.
February 4 – Drop Your Crutch
Just go step by step. My will shall be revealed as you go. You will never cease to be thankful for this time when you felt at peace and trustful, and yet had no human security.
That is the time of the True learning of trust in Me. “When thy Father and Mother forsake thee, then the Lord will take thee up.” This is a literal dependence on Me.
When human support or material help of any kind is removed, then My power can become operative. I cannot teach a man to walk who is trusting to a crutch. Away with your crutch, and My power shall so invigorate you that you shall indeed walk on to victory. Never limit My power. It is limitless.
God has spoken once; twice have I heard this;
that power belongeth unto God. Psalm 62:11
February 3 – Ambassadors All
If you love Me and long to serve others by showing them what I am like, you will assuredly do so.
Because self will disappear, be cast out.
When self has gone then those who see you will not see the self in you; only the ambassador of your King.
You have here in this seemingly narrow life of yours countless opportunities of overcoming self. Let this be your great task.
