  • 2. Hear this word, Israel, this lament I take up concerning you:  2 “Fallen is Virgin Israel,    never to rise again, deserted in her own land,    with no one to lift her up.”  3 This is what the Sovereign LORD says to Israel:    “Your city that marches out a thousand strong    will have only a hundred left; your town that marches out a hundred strong    will have only ten left.”Sunday 7 August 2011
  • 3.  4 This is what the LORD says to Israel:    “Seek me and live;  5 do not seek Bethel, do not go to Gilgal,    do not journey to Beersheba. For Gilgal will surely go into exile,    and Bethel will be reduced to nothing.” 6 Seek the LORD and live,    or he will sweep through the tribes of Joseph like a fire; it will devour them,    and Bethel will have no one to quench it.Sunday 7 August 2011

  • 21. “One day George Mueller began praying for five of his friends. After many months, one of them came to the Lord. Ten years later, two others were converted. It took 25 years before the fourth man was saved. Mueller persevered in prayer until his death for the fifth friend, and throughout those 52 years he never gave up hoping that he would accept Christ! His faith was rewarded, for soon after Mueller’s funeral the last one was saved.”Sunday 7 August 2011
  • 22. Faced with a pile of problems, we may say with our lips that only prayer can solve them, yet we talk more than pray, worry more than pray, and scheme more than pray. In sum, we put everything before prayer; Watchman NeeSunday 7 August 2011
  • 23. The Reward GodSunday 7 August 2011
  • 24. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.Sunday 7 August 2011

  • 27. Seeking the Lord means seeking his presence. “Presence” is a common translation of the Hebrew word “face.” Literally, we are to seek his “face.” But this is the Hebraic way of having access to God. To be before his face is to be in his presence. John PiperSunday 7 August 2011
  • 28. "Dont seek Gods hand; seek his face. Dont seek Gods face; seek Gods heart." God’s hand = God at work God’s face = God loving me. God as he is. God’s heart =Gods heart for Others, what he values, loves, hates, etc.Sunday 7 August 2011
  • 29. Faced with a pile of problems, we may say with our lips that only prayer can solve them, yet we talk more than pray, worry more than pray, and scheme more than pray. In sum, we put everything before prayer; other things are placed in prominent positions while prayer is relegated to last place; it is the only thing which is not so important. Watchman NeeSunday 7 August 2011
