TDR: 28 February (Revelation 1:18)

‘I am the Living One’ (Revelation 1:18) Jesus once died in our place. He now lives at the right hand of God. He is the fountain of life. Because He lives, His people shall also live.

TDR: 27 February (1 Chronicles 29:14)

‘All things come from You’ (1 Chronicles 29:14) Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above; creatures apart from God are empty cisterns, dry wells, deceitful brooks. All good dwells in your God, and flows from Him to you. Every crumb is from Christ. What He gives freely cost Him groans, sweat,...

TDR: 26 February (John 8:49)

Jesus said: ‘I honour my Father, and you dishonour me’ (John 8:49) This is a complaint brought against us by our Lord Jesus Christ. Let us listen to it. He has assured us of His love, that He seeks our good, that He will not be angry with us. We dishonour Him, therefore, by...

TDR: 25 February (Colossians 3:11)

‘Christ is all’ (Colossians 3:11) YES – this is God’s purpose, which cannot be frustrated, that Christ shall be all.

‘I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me’ (Galatians 2:20) Jesus is our substitute. He lived, suffered, and died in our place. Our sins were imputed to Him, punished in Him, and removed by Him. God had cursed us, but Jesus gave Himself to bear...

TDR: 23 February (Galatians 2:20)

‘I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me’ (Galatians 2:20) What was Paul? A blasphemer, a persecutor, one who injured the Church of God. And did Jesus love Paul? Yes – He is the one ‘who loved me’.  Then the love of Jesus is free,...

TDR: 22 February (Micah 7:18)

‘He delights to show mercy’ (Micah 7:18) The proper object of mercy is misery; sin has rendered us miserable, and God has revealed Himself as merciful. He delights in mercy; it is a pleasure to Him to have mercy upon us; He delights to pardon our sins, relieve our necessities, and save our souls....

TDR: 21 February (Psalm 11:5)

‘The LORD examines the righteous’ (Psalm 11:5) Where the Lord gives grace, He always tests it; therefore His own people must expect to pass through the fire. He will try our faith to find out what sort it is; our love, to see what strength it is. He will also try our patience and...

TDR: 20 February (Numbers 11:23)

‘Is the Lord’s arm too short?’ (Numbers 11:23) No – what He has done, He can do; and all He has promised or His people need, He will do. He has all power. He knows no difficulty. Why then are we cast down? Because we do not believe His word, we do not depend...

‘Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you’ (1 Peter 5:7) The Lord knows all His people, their situations, wants and trials. God thinks upon them to benefit, deliver, and supply them. God keeps His eye upon them in all places, at all times, and under all circumstances. He has them...

TDR: 18 February (James 5:8)

‘You too, be patient and stand firm’ (James 5:8) Our God is a God of patience. The Lord Jesus is the great example of patience. The Holy Spirit is the agent producing patience.

TDR: 17 February (2 Corinthians 6:2)

‘Now is the day of salvation’ (2 Corinthians 6:2) What an unspeakable mercy to live at such a time as this. We are poor, lost, ruined sinners; but this is the day when salvation is freely bestowed, without money and without price. The Lord saves from the love, power, and consequences of sin; gives...

‘I will be their God, and they will be my people’ (Hebrews 8:10) That is, to all His people – the object of their adoration and trust, the subject of their meditation, and the source of all their happiness. To be our God, is more than being our friend, or helper or benefactor. He...

TDR: 15 February (Ephesians 4:30)

‘Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God’ (Ephesians 4:30) We are absolutely dependent upon the Holy Spirit for life, light, teaching, and sanctification. Without His presence, power and operations we are dead, dark, ignorant and carnal. We should therefore be very careful not to grieve or dishonour Him. We do so when we...

TDR: 13 February (Psalm 139:23)

‘Search me, O God, and know my heart’ (Psalm 139:23) None can search the heart but God; none are willing for the heart to be searched except real Christians. A believer desires to know the worst. They dread deception. Grace has made them honest, and so they pray, “Lord, search me!” If another person...
