The abundance of God’s names in His Word showcases the many aspects of His identity that reflect the ways He meets the daily situations of our lives.

A canvas of His names vividly displays the majesty of His inexhaustible character to one hungry to know Him. Gazing into the face of I AM through His names captivates the seeking heart to drink in the thirst-quenching beauty of our awesome God.

Men of the Bible

Men of the Bible takes a close-up look at fifty-two men in Scripture—complex flesh-and-blood characters whose strengths and weaknesses often seem strangely similar to our own. Heroes and villains, sinners and prophets, commoners and kings . . . their dramatic life stories provide us with fresh perspective on the unfolding story of redemption.Though our culture differs vastly from theirs, the fundamental issues we face in relation to God and the world remain the same. We still reach for great dreams and selfish ambitions. We wrestle with fear and indecision, struggle with sexual temptation, and experience the ache of loneliness and the devastation of betrayal. And, like many of these men, we long to walk more closely with the God who calls us into an intimate relationship with himself and who enables us to fulfill his purpose for our lives. Men of the Bible offers men and women today a unique devotional experience that combines five elements. Each week becomes a personal retreat focused on the life of a particular man:Monday: His Story—a narrative retelling of the biblical storyTuesday: A Look at the Man—focusing on the heart of the man and how his story connects with your own lifeWednesday: His Legacy in Scripture—a Bible study on principles revealed through the life of the manThursday: His Legacy of Promise—Bible promises that apply to his life and yoursFriday: His Legacy of Prayer—praying in light of his storyDesigned for personal prayer and study or for use in small groups, Men of the Bible will help you make Bible reading a daily habit. Whether you dip into portions or read every page, this book will help you grow in character, wisdom, and obedience as a person after God’s own heart.

Devotional Classics of C. H. Spurgeon

Author: Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Publisher: Sovereign Grace Publishers,

ISBN: 1589601661

Category: Religion

Page: 744

View: 6155

This volume contains not one year, but two years of morning and evening devotions. For 366 additional pages of devotions have been selected from Spurgeon's writings, most of them from his Treasury of David. We have entitled this extra year of devotions, Morning and Evening II. Also the devotions of many other noted authors appear. In Spurgeon's preface to Treasury of David we find the following: ''The delightful study of the Psalms has yielded me boundless profit and ever-growing pleasure. Common gratitude constrains me to communicate to others a portion of the benefit, with the prayer that it may induce them to search further for themselves.'' These comments bare the heart of Charles Haddon Spurgeon, a preacher of righteousness, and a man after God's own heart. Anyone with only a brief acquaintance with the fruits of his pen must see that this famed but humble soul lived and breathed the Word of God. The reader of these daily devotions will quickly discover that Mr. Spurgeon did not ''keep back from declaring to you all the counsel of God'' (Acts. 20:27). In his heart he magnified the Lord; his heart panted after Him ''as the heart pants after the waterbrooks.'' Therefore, in his devotions he did not forget the teachings of Holy Scripture. These devotions which he has written for the saints of God reflect his own personal devotions. Any sincere lover of God and of His Word should cherish the many gleams of heavenly light which leap from every page of this volume. And if he biblically bears down on the doctrines of grace which have been hidden from view in this ungodly age, it will soon prove to be a blessing of the highest degree to those who ''seek to know the Lord, '' an to ''grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ'' (2 Peter 3:18) As you read these devotions day by day, may you find yourselves fervently saying, ''To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity'' (2 Peter 3:18).

THE DWELLING PRAYER DEVOTIONAL allows readers to connect intimately with God...i wrote this book to enable everyone to have a divine connection with our father God on a daily basis, its very important to pray because Prayer is communication with God, it's essentially the time we spend consciously in the presence of God, desiring to know and love Him more. Prayer is a duet between you and God. It is a petition, or adoration, or contrition, or thanksgiving. Prayer is also the opening of one's heart and soul in a conversation with God. Pray continually (See 1 Thessalonians 5:17) From the beginning of time the devil has tried and is still fighting the body of Christ to drift them away from Gods presence through his lies and deceptive ways. That's why as children of God we need to be alert to the ways of God and abide daily with him and he will hide us under the shadow of his wings and protect us from the hidden tactics of the enemy. As a body of Christ we are living in a season and a time when the church and the nations are being attacked on every side. That's why Psalms 91 is very vital in a life of every believer. Come hell or high water we as believers are to dwell in the secret place of the most high and be still under the shadow of the almighty for he is our refuge and strength. Be Blessed!

When I was a little girl, no one told me about God. No one told me that God loved me. No one told me anything of the Lord, faith or belief. Looking back now I realize how much I wish they had. This is my story, the story of my personal journey with God. I came to a point in my life that I just could not go on with things the way they were. Perhaps you have wanted to know God more closely. I hope that in some small way, a poem, story, thought or prayer of mine blesses you. I pray that some part of my journey ministers to your soul.
