"Whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he" Proverbs 16:20 How precious is the grace of faith! It is the gift of God. Faith unites us to Christ. "Other graces make us like Christ; faith makes us members of Christ" [Thomas Watson]. It is a saving grace. "Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace" Luke [...]
The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

These are all divinely provided vessels for the Holy Spirit to fill, and if you but rightly understood their meaning, they would become opportunities for receiving new blessings and deliverances [...]
The great battle had been fought. The great victory had been won. The children of Israel had no part in that battle. They had a part, however, in the celebration of the victory. They stood still. They saw the salvation of God. The Lord did fight for them, and they did hold their [...]

The Free Presbyterian Church of North America started in Toronto on July 4, 1976. As other congregations were formed they joined to make the North American presbytery. Then in the mid-eighties, a bi-annual Ministers’ Week of Prayer was initiated. Ministers and elders would meet in May and October in one of the churches [...]
"There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job." Job 1:1 The contents of the book of Job portray in vivid and at times poetic language the fierce conflict between the Lord and Satan concerning the faith and integrity of His servant Job. The devil was permitted to wreak havoc in [...]
It is a good thing to set aside a day to honour our parents, but not just one day – it should be every day! Today is Mothers’ Day, and it has been celebrated in North America since 1914 under President Woodrow Wilson. The fifth commandment reads, “Honour thy father and thy mother: [...]
"Give us this day our daily bread." Matthew 6:11 If you want daily bread and would pray for it aright, you must ask as a child; and you must put first, before your own satisfaction, the Hallowing of God's Name and the doing of His Will. Implicitly you suggest that if He gives you [...]
