I don’t know when I’ll get a chance to do my regular devotions today, but I thought today’s entry in the FOOD FOR THOUGHT was especially good.  Here is an excerpt from “Staying with God”:

“God never forsakes us; we forsake Him.

…It is through the Power greater than ourselves that we are led into order, sanity, and recovery. To stay with this Power is our salvation.”


Also, I enjoyed Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening entry for this morning.  In response to one of my favorite abstinence passages, John 4:14, which reads, “Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst,” Mr. Spurgeon wrote:

“He who is a believer in Jesus finds enough in his Lord to satisfy him now, and to content him for evermore.

… Put him in a dungeon and he will find good company; place him in a barren wilderness, he will eat the bread of heaven; drive him away from friendship, he will meet the ‘friend that sticketh closer than a brother.’ Blast all his gourds, and he will find shadow beneath the Rock of Ages; sap the foundation of his earthly hopes, but his heart will still be fixed, trusting in the Lord. The heart is as insatiable as the grave till Jesus enters it, and then it is a cup full to overflowing.”
