  • Ecclesiastes 10:7 - Morning Devotional for May. 19th

    "I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth."—Ecclesiastes 10:7Morning ThoughtUpstarts frequently usurp the highest places, while the truly great pine in obscurity. This is a riddle in providence whose solution will one day gladden the hearts of the upright; but it is so common a fact, that none of us should murmur if it should fall to our own lot. When our Lord was upon earth, although he is the Prince of the kings of the earth, yet he walked the footpath of weariness and service as the Servant of servants: what wonder is it if his followers, who are princes of the blood, should also be looked down upon as inferior and contemptible persons? The world is upside down, and therefore, the first are last and the last first. See how the servile sons of Satan lord it in the earth! What a high horse they ride! How they lift up their horn on high! Haman is in the court, while Mordecai sits in the gate; David wanders on the mountains, while Saul reigns in state; Elijah is complaining in the cave while Jezebel is boasting in the palace; yet who would wish to take the places of the proud rebels? and who, on the other hand, might not envy the despised saints? When the wheel turns, those who are lowest rise, and the highest sink. Patience, then, believer, eternity will right the wrongs of time. Let us not fall into the error of letting our passions and carnal appetites ride in triumph, while our nobler powers walk in the dust. Grace must reign as a prince, and make the members of the body instruments of righteousness. The Holy Spirit loves order, and he therefore sets our powers and faculties in due rank and place, giving the highest room to those spiritual faculties which link us with the great King; let us not disturb the divine arrangement, but ask for grace that we may keep under our body and bring it into subjection. We were not new created to allow our passions to rule over us, but that we, as kings, may reign in Christ Jesus over the triple kingdom of spirit, soul, and body, to the glory of God the Father.

  • 1 Kings 19:4 - Evening Devotional for May. 19th

    "And he requested for himself that he might die."—1 Kings 19:4Evening ThoughtIt was a remarkable thing that the man who was never to die, for whom God had ordained an infinitely better lot, the man who should be carried to heaven in a chariot of fire, and be translated, that he should not see death-should thus pray, "Let me die, I am no better than my fathers." We have here a memorable proof that God does not always answer prayer in kind, though he always does in effect. He gave Elias something better than that which he asked for, and thus really heard and answered him. Strange was it that the lion-hearted Elijah should be so depressed by Jezebel's threat as to ask to die, and blessedly kind was it on the part of our heavenly Father that he did not take his desponding servant at his word. There is a limit to the doctrine of the prayer of faith. We are not to expect that God will give us everything we choose to ask for. We know that we sometimes ask, and do not receive, because we ask amiss. If we ask for that which is not promised-if we run counter to the spirit which the Lord would have us cultivate-if we ask contrary to his will, or to the decrees of his providence-if we ask merely for the gratification of our own ease, and without an eye to his glory, we must not expect that we shall receive. Yet, when we ask in faith, nothing doubting, if we receive not the precise thing asked for, we shall receive an equivalent, and more than an equivalent, for it. As one remarks, "If the Lord does not pay in silver, he will in gold; and if he does not pay in gold, he will in diamonds." If he does not give you precisely what you ask for, he will give you that which is tantamount to it, and that which you will greatly rejoice to receive in lieu thereof. Be then, dear reader, much in prayer, and make this evening a season of earnest intercession, but take heed what you ask. Ⓒ 1996-2022 Heartlight, Inc.

God's Holy Fire from Heartlight God's Holy Fire is a daily devotional about the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

  • Witnesses

    [Peter and the apostles before the Sanhedrin:] "The God of our ancestors raised Jesus from the dead after you killed him by hanging him on a cross. Then God put him in the place of honor at his right hand as Prince and Savior. He did this so the people of Israel would repent of their sins and be forgiven. We are witnesses of these things and so is the Holy Spirit, who is given by God to those who obey him."—Acts 5:30-32 NLTKey ThoughtAn incredible amount of truth is compacted into these few verses. In "God's Holy Fire" today, we want to recognize the role of the Holy Spirit in this truth: The Holy Spirit is the witness to God's work in Jesus, our Prince and Savior, crucified, raised from the dead, and put in the place of honor. Not only is the Holy Spirit the heavenly witness to these truths, but also the Spirit has been given to all who obey God. The witness lives inside us as a witness to us. John also describes the Holy Spirit as the anointing we have received that remains in us, and Jesus says that the Spirit teaches us and guides us into all truth (1 John 2:18-27; John 16:12-15). What incredible gifts and promises to those of us who obey God!Today's PrayerO Father, it surely feels like I live in a time when belief in the truth of the good news of Jesus is under constant attack. I thank you for your holy presence, the Holy Spirit, whom you have given me and who lives within me. I thank you for the Spirit's witness to the truth about Jesus that is found in the Scriptures and that resides within me through the Spirit's presence. I offer my thanks for this great gift in the name of Jesus, my Prince and Savior. Amen.Ⓒ 1996-2022 Heartlight, Inc.
