  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror.

January 3, 2013 - Good New Year's Counsel

By Walter Fred Vaughn

"With my spirit within me I will seek thee early" (Isaiah 26:9, KJV).

Let me ever seek God. And let me seek Him early. Let me not first embark in an enterprise and then ask His blessing upon it. Let me not first make all my arrangements and then ask Him to guide me. Let me not first take counsel with myself and then ask Him to ratify that counsel.

This is a matter of unspeakable importance, and it is to be feared that there are very few who seek God when they should. It is but a mockery of God to enter a path of one's own election, and then ask His guardianship.

A man engages a woman to marry him, and then tells it to God and asks His blessing. A man takes his departure for another city or another land, and when his trunks are packed he looks to God for His preserving care.

Far be such a habit from the spirit that is within me. Let me seek God early. Let me not put Him down fourth or fifth in the list of friends whose counsel or whose aid in any concern I propose to seek, but in everything, great and small, let me give Him the pre-eminence; let Him be all to me.

— Adapted from This Is the Victory by Walter Fred Vaughn, originally published in the January 4, 1953, Pentecostal Evangel.
