Deserted by God: New Direction

The Shepherd’s grace is real, and free. Yet, as David goes on to stress, it does not leave us the way it finds us. Restoration leads to new direction: ‘He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake’ (Psalm 23, verse 3); it is restoration to following the Shepherd as Guide!

Deserted by God: God is with Us

When John Wesley lay dying, many of his friends came to visit him. Strong Christians as they were, they were anxious to encourage him with the promises of God. At one point, however, Wesley raised himself in the bed and with special energy said to them: ‘Yes, all these promises are true. But best of all, God is with us.'

For the Sake of the Gospel: The Rest of the Story (Part 15 of 15)

After traveling through the book of Acts with Paul on his three missionary journeys, we aren’t told what happened to Paul after his house arrest in Rome. In the last two verses of Acts, Luke tells us that Paul stayed in Rome for two years and that the Gospel was proclaimed. There is speculation about why the time span of two years was mentioned and what exactly happened to Paul after that.

Rome was the capital of the Roman Empire, which extended about three million square miles around the Mediterranean and encompassed Spain, France, Israel, and parts of northern Africa.

Preface to July's Resource: "Deserted by God?"

The theme of this book is capable of daunting the boldest spirit for more than one reason. The subject—the sense that God has, perhaps, deserted me—is deep and in many respects mysterious. It belongs to the darker side of spiritual experience. For that reason to read about it, and indeed to write of it, can be itself a discouraging experience, laying low the spirits...
