to Be

Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.
Exodus 16:4

Upon reading this today I realized how much we need to step out into situations that only God can handle, that only He is our provider. We are so caught up in meeting our own needs that we never come close to this blessed place, the place where God can prove us.

If we won't even dare take the test, can we dare to declare that we have passed the test? Our preoccupation with meeting our own needs continually tempers our obedience to what the Lord is calling us to do. This should not be.

Prove us, Lord!

A Psalm

Number 1

In Thee, Father, I have all things.
I truly have need of nothing.
In Your presence daily, with my heart set on Thee,
I have need of nothing more.

You are greater than my greatest earthly need.
I need not for ministry or life, but only Thee.
You are my sustenance, my daily food and drink.
You are my health, You are my healer.
You are my source.
If anything be added unto me
it is secondary, extra, above and beyond my only
need which is Thee.
I truly have no need.
I am able to be with You, in Your presence,
continually, and my need thus is met.

Father, my need is Thee. My need is Thee.
Your Door is always open, and You always bid me come.

Our speaking and doing, if truly in the Holy Ghost, will convict the world of sin. Jesus says that if He had not spoken and done what He did, the world would have no sin. Amazing! Jesus said that their excuse was taken away (John 15:22). Does my life allow excuses? Can people hear and see me and continue on their course unchallenged, without the least hint of apprehension?

“Let your light so shine before men . . .”

If the world isn't convicted in my presence, I am not living right, not walking right—not keeping in step with the Holy Spirit.

Our lives are a continual conviction either to the world or to ourselves; either to them of their sin, or to us of our lukewarmness.


The time is coming, and soon, when the world will simply no longer listen to the gospel at all. They hardly listen now; most do not. Their ears, eyes, and minds are simply stuffed full to the brim with everything the Devil and this world can offer them. It's high time that someone was able and willing to shake this completely dead generation. Their minds must be arrested with the tragedy so ready to befall them. God's demands must be thrown at them with all the force a holy love can muster.

This may be the worst generation of scoffers to date. Their damnation has been thoroughly earned. I do still hope that some can be saved from the fire!
