April 15 Morning Devotional

“My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?” Psalm 22:1 We here behold the Saviour in the depth of His sorrows. No other place so well shows the griefs of Christ as Calvary, and no other moment at Calvary is so full of agony as that in which His cry rends the air–“My God,…

“Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him.” Isaiah 3:10 It is well with the righteous ALWAYS. If it had said, “Say ye to the righteous, that it is well with him in his prosperity,” we must have been thankful for so great a boon, for prosperity is an hour of…

“All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head.” Psalm 22:7 Mockery was a great ingredient in our Lord’s woe. Judas mocked Him in the garden; the chief priests and scribes laughed Him to scorn; Herod set Him at nought; the servants and the soldiers jeered…

“The king’s garden.” Nehemiah 3:15 Mention of the king’s garden by Nehemiah brings to mind the paradise which the King of kings prepared for Adam.

“Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.” Psalm 25:18 It is well for us when prayers about our sorrows are linked with pleas concerning our sins–when, being under God’s hand, we are not wholly taken up with our pain, but remember our offences against God. It is well, also, to…

Evening Devotional “For there stood by me this night the angel of God.” Acts 27:23 Tempest and long darkness, coupled with imminent risk of shipwreck, had brought the crew of the vessel into a sad case; one man alone among them remained perfectly calm, and by his word the rest were reassured. Paul was the…

“The place which is called Calvary.” Luke 23:33 The hill of comfort is the hill of Calvary; the house of consolation is built with the wood of the cross; the temple of heavenly blessing is founded upon the riven rock–riven by the spear which pierced His side. No scene in sacred history ever gladdens the…
