Sow the Real Seed

If you sow vows, resolutions, aspirations, emotions, you will reap nothing but exhaustion: ‘And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it’ (Lev. 26:16); but sow the Word of God, and as sure as God is God, it will bring forth fruit…

The Rights of the Land

When God ordained ‘a sabbath of solemn rest for the land’, it was a reiteration of the instructions given to Adam in the Garden of Eden – ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it’ (Genesis 1:28).

Know What You Should Do – Mark 5:28

Today’s reading (57) is Leviticus 21:1-22:33, Psalm 27:11-14, Proverbs 10:13-16, Mark 5:21-43.

The focus of the devotional is Mark 5:28 and here is an excerpt from the devotional from Oswald Chambers’ book, “Our Brilliant Heritage”:

When the Spirit of God has opened your mind by His incoming and you are determining to know more, you will find that external circumstances and internal knowledge go together, and by obedience you begin to fulfill your spiritual destiny. It is a great deal better to fulfill the purpose of God in your life by discerning His will than it is to perform great acts of self-sacrifice.

Today’s Devotional – What We Should Hate

Leviticus 19:1-20:27, Psalm 27:4-10, Proverbs 10:10-12, Mark 5:1-20.  The devotion is focused on Leviticus 19:17 and an excerpt from Oswald Chambers’ quote from “Biblical Psychology” is this,

“The carnal mind is enmity against God”; what we should hate is this principle that lusts against the Spirit of God and is determined to have our bodies and minds and rule them away from God.
