Coram Deo: (Latin Phrase) Living Before the Face of God-Are You Ready to Meet Him?

March 26


"Today is All You Have"


“But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called ‘today,' that none of your may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin”

Hebrews 3: 13.

Daily bring your heart and the Word of God together that thy heart may be levelled by it and filled with it. The want of performing this sincerely is a great cause of that unfaithfulness that is in us to God. Bring then, your heart to the Word daily to try how you believe the Word today, to try how it agrees with the Word today. This is the way to make clean work daily, to keep your soul warm and living daily. “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way?” said David. “By taking heed thereto according to thy Word” (Psalm 119: 9). And again, “Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips, I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer” (Psalm 17: 4). And again, “Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee” (Psalm 119: 11). He who delights ‘”in the law of the Lord, and in his law does meditate day and night, he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper” (Psalm 1: 2-3).


[Make it] . . . a continual remembrance that to every day you do the work allotted you and that sufficient for that day are the evils that attend thee (Matthew 6:34). This remembrance set Paul upon his watch daily; made him die to himself and this world daily. And [it] provoked him also daily to wind up the spirit of his mind, transforming himself by the power of the Word. From that proneness that was in his flesh to carnal things (1 Corinthians 15: 30-33). This will make you keep the knife at my throat in all places, and business, and company (Proverbs 23: 2).
