Listen To This Week's Recommended Teaching
Each week we select a popular teaching from Jon's archives. This week's teaching from Deuteronomy is "Characteristics Of Cults."

Greetings and Grace to all this day!

What a tremendous gift our Lord has given us in allowing us to hear His heart on any given day as we open up His Book and hear what His Spirit would say to each of us in a most personal way.

I have found that for me it is a real key to ask for His Holy Spirit to soften my heart and open my ears before I begin to read or to study the passage before me.

Indeed, Jesus told us that "the Spirit of Truth will guide you into all truth" (John 16:13).

So, the next time you open up your Bible, or take in a SearchLight broadcast, pause for a moment or two and whisper an articulated prayer asking for His Spirit to tutor you personally...

...and I think you'll discover it truly can make a dynamic difference in taking in the teaching or applying the section you are reading. Praise Jesus for His Spirit being given to each and every one of us - Hallelujah and Amen!

Rejoicing in Jesus,

Jon Courson


Daily Devotional
November 23
 
Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? Prudent, and he shall know them? For the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.
Hosea 14:9
 
The transgressors will stumble indefinitely, but those who are wise will hear.

C. H. Spurgeon visited one of his parishioners and saw a weather vane on the man’s barn inscribed with the words “God is love.”

“Are you trying to say that God’s love changes?”

“Oh, no,” the farmer said. “I’m saying that no matter which way the wind is blowing, God is still love.”

That is the message of Hosea. God’s people would break His heart. And yet, just as Hosea was not to give up on his rebellious wife Gomer, God would not give up on His people. His love remained consistent toward them - just as it does for you.

Hear the heart of your Father. Come back to Him. Let Him love you.
