Proverbs 15: 11: Hell and destruction are before the LORD: how much more then the hearts of the children of men?



O, Father, what sweet comfort to know “my times are in thy hand.”  Every detail in my life right now, you ordained from eternity and brought to pass especially for my good and the glory of Christ my All!




There is a song in our hymn book that says, Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blessed - finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.” Oh, how true that is!

When our hearts are sincerely, fervently looking to Christ, we see a God who TRULY IS GOD. We see a purpose that is ordered and sure. We see a salvation that is forever settled in heaven. And we see an eternal home that is so much better than the pilgrimage were passing through now. We see a Husband who loves us and gave Himself for us. We see a Friend that will stick closer to us than a brother. We see a Shepherd who will watch over our every move, keeping His all-seeing eye on everything concerning us. We see safety. We see mercy. We see grace. We see help in our time of need. Every time we look to Christ, we see lasting joy. We see contentment. We see perfect peace and rest.

     The great blessing that Gods people have on this earth is the God given ability to look to Christ. That will forever be our blessing. The more we can look to Him, the more joy we will have, the more contentment we will have, the more peace we will have, and the more rest we will have.

     Lord, keep our eyes and our hearts on you.            Gabe Stalnaker


As I have thought of some of my dear brothers and sisters that I have seen die very sweetly, and I have remembered that they were, in life, lowly and self-distrustful, I have compared them to persons who, when they drink their tea, forget to stir the sugar at the bottom of the cup. How doubly sweet the drink becomes as they near the bottom: they have more sweetness than they can well bear. Would it not be wise to stir the tea at once and enjoy the sweetness from the brim to the bottom? In the midst of affliction, God through the gospel “Stirs up your pure minds to faith” This is the benefit of faith as to the future, for it flavors the present with delight.                                                                        Charles Spurgeon




Moses and the people were in the desert, but what was he going to do with them? They had to be fed.  And feeding 2 or 3 million people requires a lot of food. According to the Quartermaster General in the Army, it is reported that Moses would have to have had 1500 tons of food each day. Do you know that to bring that much food each day, two freight trains, each a mile long, would be required! 

    Besides, you must remember, they were out in the desert, so they would have to have wood to use in cooking the food. This would take 4000 tons of wood and a few more freight trains, each a mile long, just for one day. And just think, they were forty years in transit.

   And, oh yes! They would have to have water. If they only had enough to drink and wash a few dishes, it would take 11,000,000 gallons each day, and a freight train with tank cars, 1800 miles long, just to bring water!

   And then another thing! They had to get across the Red Sea at night. (They did?) Now, if they went on a narrow path, double file, the line would be 800 miles long and would require 35 days and nights to get through. So, there had to be a space in the Red Sea 3 miles wide so that they could walk 5000 abreast to get over in one night.

   But then, there is another problem. Each time they camped at the end of the day, a campground two-thirds the size of the state of Rhode Island was required, or a total of 750 square miles long...think of it! This space just for nightly camping.

     Do you think Moses figured all this out before he left Egypt? I think not! You see, Moses believed God. God took care of these things for him. Now do you think God has any problem taking care of all your needs?                               Copied from brother Milton Howard’s bulletin



When I am weak and feel some measure of strength from being so then I am not weak. When I am so weak that Christ, outside and apart from me, is the only hope I have then I am strong.





Genesis 45: 26: And told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt. And Jacob’s heart fainted, for he believed them not. 27: And they told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said unto them: and when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived: 28: And Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I will go and see him before I die.


Jacob’s heart fainted because he believed not.  But they continued to tell him all the words of Joseph.  Then when Jacob saw wagons sent by Joseph to carry him his spirit came alive.  His name was changed, “Israel said, ‘It is Enough!’’  He believed the word that the son was yet alive and determined to go and see him before he died.


     When we first hear the gospel preached our heart faints because we believe not.  But after hearing the gospel the Spirit makes us behold the wagons of full provision Christ has provided to carry us the whole way to glory.  Then our hearts are revived.  A new man is created in the name of Christ (Is 49: 3; Gen 32: 28).  In Christ’s name, in the Prince of peace, we have Power with God and have prevailed. The heart cries, “It is enough, Christ my Lord is alive!  I will go and see him before I die.”  May God work this in our hearts today!



Sinners so ashamed of their sins that they dare not confide in the humblest in religion for fear of judgment and scorn find the Lord Jesus so meek and lowly that they can confess their most shameful transgressions and not only never be turned away but find the comforting embrace of immutable love and mercy.
