God Is Able to Keep You

Many people admit that it is a sacred duty and a blessed
privilege to abide in Christ but shrink back continually before the
question: Is a life of unbroken fellowship with the Savior truly
possible?

Eminent Christians, to whom special opportunities of
cultivating this grace have been granted, may attain to it; but for the
large majority of disciples, whose lives, by divine appointment, are so
fully occupied with the affairs of this life, it can scarce be expected.

When You Pray, Believe

When You Pray, Believe

When Jesus was on Earth, He made an incredible promise to His disciples regarding prayer that is recorded in Mark 11:24: “‘Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them’” (NKJV). This promise of answer to prayer is one of the most wonderful in all Scripture. But in how many hearts has it raised the question: However can I attain the faith that knows it receives all it asks?

It is this question our Lord would answer today. Before He gave that wonderful promise to His disciples, He spoke another word, in which He points out where the faith in the answer to prayer originates and ever finds its strength:

“‘Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever…does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says’” (v. 23). “Have faith in God.” This word precedes the other, “Have faith in the promise of an answer to prayer.”

The power to believe a promise depends entirely on faith in the promiser. Trust in the person begets trust in his word.

The Posture That Pleases God

What a solemn thought, that our love for God will be measured by our
everyday contact with men and the love it displays; and that our love
for God will be found to be a delusion except as its truth is proved in
standing the test of daily life with our fellow men!

It is even so with our humility. It is easy to think we
humble ourselves before God, but humility toward men will be the only
sufficient proof that our humility before God is real—that humility has
taken up residence in us and become our very nature—that we actually,
like Christ, have made ourselves of no reputation. When in the presence
of God lowliness of heart has become not a posture in which we pray to
Him but the very spirit of our life, it will manifest itself in all our
bearing toward others.
