• “But the misfortune is that people wish to direct God instead of resigning themselves to be directed by Him. We wish to take the lead, and to follow in a way of their own selection instead of submissively and passively following where God sees fit to conduct them. And hence it is, that many souls who are called to the enjoyment of God himself and mot merely to the gifts of God, spend all their lives in pursuing and in feeding on little consolations.” – Madame Guyon

Brokenness, Forgiveness, and Victory – Part 2 by Magdalene Klinksiek Jenkins

And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD Psalm 40:3

God had yet much more in mind for me when in under the ministry of the Sutera Twins with the Canadian Revival Fellowship, a crusade took place. The Holy Spirit touched my heart again. By God’s grace He let me see the uselessness of my effort and that the only place where I would find rest was at the cross. There I must leave everything.

After I came home that night, the Holy Spirit continued His gentle work in me while I prayed, Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting Psalm 139: 23-24.

He let me see the bitterness I still harbored deep in my heart against those who drove my parents and grandparents out of our home in Danzig-Langfuhr during World War II. I confessed sin, and He forgave me. He allowed my bitterness to grow into forgiveness for those who had taken over our home, lived in our rooms and used our possessions – especially my grand piano.

I no longer asked Him to help me, but to have me. I realized that the old self did not need any help, but needed to die. I asked Him to fill me with His Holy Spirit, and by the end of the week He became the Lord of my entire life – especially my schedules and my overcrowded day. He became the manager of all my talents and music. I gave Him full control so He could use me anywhere, anytime and in any way He chose. Finally a joy of total peace flooded my heart.

  • “In case any are puzzled by the different translations from which I draw strength and help and delight, it is like this: In studying any object with the microscope we use different lenses and turn the mirror in various ways; each change brings out some new wonder and beauty. So it is for those who are not Greek or Hebrew scholars, and who use the work of scholars to open the meaning of the exhaustible Word–the Bible is richer than any single version can fully show.” – Amy Carmichael

Verse of the Day

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. — Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NKJV)
