First Chapter

January 1

"We will be glad and rejoice in thee" (Song of Solomon 1:4). We will be glad and rejoice in God. We will not open the gates and begin the new year on a note of sadness. Rather, we will sing to the sweet strains of the harp of joy and the high sounding cymbals of gladness. "0 come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise unto the rock of our salvation" (Psalm 95:1). We, the called and faithful and chosen, we will drive away our griefs and set up our banners of confidence in the name of God. Let others lament over their troubles. We who have the sweetening tree to cast into Marah's bitter pool will magnify the Lord with joy. Eternal Spirit, our perfect Comforter, we will never cease from adoring and blessing the name of Jesus. Jesus must have the crown of our heart's delight. We will not dishonor our Bridegroom by mourning in His presence. We are ordained to be the minstrels of the skies. Let us rehearse our everlasting song before we sing it in the halls of the New Jerusalem. We will be glad and rejoice-two words with one meaning-double joy, blessing upon blessing. Should there be any limit to our rejoicing in the Lord even now? What riches are laid up in Jesus! What rivers of infinite bliss have their source and every drop of their fullness in Him! Sweet Lord Jesus, You are the present inheritance of Your people. Favor us this year with such a sense of Your preciousness that from its first to its last day, we may be glad and rejoice in You. Let January open with joy in the Lord and December close with gladness in Jesus.

November 26 "They shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel " (Zechariah 4: 10). Small things marked the beginning of the work in the hand of Zerubbabel. But no one could despise the small beginnings, for the Lord raised up one who would persevere until the headstone was ready to be brought forth with a shout of victory. Here is comfort for every believer in the Lord Jesus. The work of grace may be ever so small in its beginnings, but the plummet is in good bands. A Master Builder greater than Solomon has undertaken the raising of the heavenly temple, and He will not fail or be discouraged until the highest pinnacle is complete. If the plummet was in the hand of any human being, we could worry about the building. But the desire of the Lord will be accomplished by Jesus' hand. Had the walls been hurriedly built without proper planning and supervision, they might have deviated from the straight line. But the plummet was used by the chosen overseer. Jesus is always watching the construction of His spiritual temple, that it may be built securely and well. We like instant results, but Jesus prefers to use careful judgment. He will use the plummet, and that which is out of line must come down. This is what causes the failure of many flattering works and the overthrow of many a glittering testimony. It is not our responsibility to judge the Lord's Church since Jesus has a steady hand and a true eye and can use the plummet well. Rejoice that judgment is left to Him. The plummet was in active use-it was in the builder's hand. This gave a sure indication that he meant to push on the work to completion. 0 Lord Jesus, how glad we would be if we could see You at Your great work!

July 19 "A bruised reed shall be not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench" (Matthew 12:20). What is weaker than the bruised reed or the smoking flax? A reed that grows in the marsh snaps as soon as the wild duck touches it. If the foot of a man brushes against it, it is bruised and broken. Every wind that flits across the river moves it to and fro. Nothing is more frail or brittle, with an existence that is more in jeopardy, than a bruised reed. Look at the smoking flax. It has a spark within it, but it is almost smothered. An infant's breath might blow it out; nothing has a more precarious existence than its flame. Weak things are described here, yet Jesus says of them, "The smoking flax I will not quench; the bruised reed I will not break." Some of God's children are made strong to do mighty works for Him. But the majority of His people are a timid, trembling race. They are like starlings, frightened at every passer-by - a fearful little flock. If temptation comes, they are caught like birds in a snare. If trial threatens, they are ready to faint. Tossed by every turbulent breeze, they drift along like a sea bird on the crest of the billows-weak things, without strength, without wisdom, without foresight. Yet, because they are so weak, they have this promise made especially to them. How this shows us the compassion of Jesus-so gentle, tender, and considerate! We need never shrink back from His touch. We need never fear a harsh word from Him. Though He will chide us for our weakness, He does not rebuke. Bruised reeds will have no blows from Him, and the smoking flax will receive no dampening frowns.
