Songs in the Night   “But none saith, Where is God my Maker, who giveth songs in the night?” — Job xxxv. 10.   ELIHU was a wise man, exceedingly wise, though not as wise as the all-wise Jehovah, who sees light in the clouds, and finds order in confusion; hence Elihu, being much puzzled at beholding Job so …

October 26, 1884

The Enemies of the Cross of Christ   “For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.” — Philippians iii. …

Take Heed, Brethren   “Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.” — Hebrews iii. 12.   THIS message is not addressed to strangers far away, but to “brethren.” Paul wrote it to the Hebrews, who were his brethren according to the flesh; it was kind …


God’s Knowledge of Sin

October 19, 1884

God’s Knowledge of Sin   “O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.” — Psalm lxix. 5.   IT seems, thou, that the best of men have a measure of foolishness in them, and that, sometimes, that foolishness shows itself. How gentle and tender ought we to be with others who are foolish …

Small Things Not to be Despised

September 16, 1883

Small Things Not to be Despised   “For who hath despised the day of small things?” — Zachariah iv. 10.   IT is a very great folly to despise “the day of small things,” for it is usually God’s way to begin his great works with small things. We see it every day, for the first dawn of light …


A Strange yet Gracious Choice

September 6, 1883

A Strange yet Gracious Choice   “For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.” — Psalm cxxxv. 4.   THIS is a Psalm of praise all through.

A Visit from the Lord

August 30, 1883

A Visit from the Lord   “O visit me with thy salvation.” — Psalm cvi. 4.   THIS is the prayer of a man who understood the art of praise. He begins this Psalm with a Hallelujah. “Praise ye the Lord. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good.” Now, mark, there is no prayer that is …
