God’s High Places

God’s High Places

by Charles Haddon Spurgeon

I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. (Psalm 91:14)

Does the Lord say this to me? Yes, if I have known His name. Blessed be the Lord, I am no stranger to Him. I have tried Him, proved Him, and known Him, and therefore do I trust Him. I know His name as a sin-hating God, for by His Spirit’s convincing power I have been taught that He will never wink at evil. But I also know Him as the sin-pardoning God in Christ Jesus, for He has forgiven me all trespasses. His name is faithfulness, and I know it, for He has never forsaken me though my troubles have multiplied upon me.

This knowledge is a gift of grace, and the Lord makes it to be the reason why He grants another grace-gift, namely, setting on high. This is grace upon grace. Observe that if we climb on high, the position may be dangerous; but if the Lord sets us there it is safe. He may raise us to great usefulness, to eminent experience, to success in service, to leadership among workers, to a father’s place among the little ones. If He does not do this, He may set us on high by near fellowship, clear insight, holy triumph, and gracious anticipation of eternal glory. When God sets us on high, Satan himself cannot pull us down. Oh, that this may be our case all through this day!

Lady at Arms

LADY AT ARMS: A “clean read” rewrite of the bestselling WARRIOR BRIDE, published by Bantam Books, 1994

HE WAS THE VILEST OF MEN
Lizanne Balmaine has spent years honing her skills at arms, determined she will never again be at the mercy of any man. When she comes face to face with the one who stole her future, she seizes the opportunity to exact revenge. Soon he is her prisoner, at her mercy. But something is different about him, something that makes her question her purpose. Is it possible a man can be so changed? More, can she right the wrong that could lay ruin to her family?

SHE WAS A QUESTION NEVER BEFORE ASKED OF HIM
Ranulf Wardieu does not seek a bride, nor a settling of scores when his mission for the king places him in the path of a beguiling, raven-haired maiden. But fascination turns to fury when she imprisons him. Accused of wrongdoing, the nature of which she refuses to reveal, he discovers the lady is as skilled at wielding a sword as she is at verbal sparring. When he bests her at her game and his jailer becomes his captive, he is determined to learn what wrong he has done her. However, as they engage in a battle of wits and wills and he glimpses her woman’s heart, he discovers Lizanne is a question never before asked of him—one his own jaded heart refuses to answer.

Dread Champion

by Brandilyn Collins

Dread Champion

 

Chelsea Adams has visions sent from God.

But they have no place in a courtroom.

As a juror for a murder trial, Chelsea must rely only on the evidence. And this circumstantial evidence is strong—Darren Welk killed his wife.

Or did he?

The trial is a nightmare for Chelsea. The other jurors belittle her Christian faith. As testimony unfolds, truth and secrets blur. Chelsea’s visiting niece stumbles into peril surrounding the case, and Chelsea cannot protect her. God sends visions—frightening, vivid. But what do they mean? Even as Chelsea finds out, what can she do? She is helpless, and danger is closing in…

Masterfully crafted, Dread Champion is a novel in which appearances can deceive and the unknown can transform the meaning of known facts. One man’s guilt or innocence is just a single link in a chain of hidden evil…and God uses the unlikeliest of people to accomplish His purposes.

You Have a Choice This or Nothing

You Have a Choice This or Nothing

by Rebekah Beene

When my kids were little supper was always at the table but it wasn’t always what each child wanted. So I would always say “you have a choice this or nothing.”  They generally chose supper as it was.

Oh beloved, this day God does not restrict our prayers as only one or nothing. We have the Word of God in written  form but we have the Word of God – Jesus – who became flesh and dwelt among us. When we are faced with two choices we always choose to be obedient to the Lord as children who love God our Father.

But we don’t have to labor at the banquet table of what ifs, how to’s or anything. Jesus taught His disciples to pray Your Kingdom come on earth… He tells us in the realm of prayer to pray expecting to receive. He says ask, seek, knock and keep on asking seeking and knocking. The prayer of apathy, resignation or self provoking is mentioned nowhere.

God loves you and He’s for you. So beloved believer pray for the Kingdom to come on earth in your situation. Ask for big scary prayer answers that have no hope for an answer without intervention from the Lord. Don’t worry about anything but pray and believe you receive.  Your King loves to answer, your Savior intercedes 24/7 and Holy Spirit is your Guide. When you release unprecedented prayer you receive a banquet of blessing! Don’t fear missing God’s will for it is His good pleasure to restore, heal and deliver. Rejoice that your prayers can have real answers that show His power and glory as you walk by faith and not by sight!

James 5:13-15 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

1 Peter 2:24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness-by whose stripes you were healed.

3 John 1:2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.

Acts 3:6 But Peter said, “I do not possess silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you: In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene– walk!”

Clean, Contemporary Christian Romance

by Debra Ullrick

Remember to Forget

Her brother tricked her!

When Shianne Sumner’s brother asks her to help an elderly man, she can’t refuse. When she arrives at his house, she is not only shocked to discover that the man isn’t old but that the help he needs is delivering packages to a children’s hospital. Unable to let him or the children down, she puts her fears aside and takes him. Once there, her worst fears are realized. Fearing for Jude Bradford’s safety, she is relieved when he hires her to help him. The more time she spends with him, the more her feelings for him grow. Having been abandoned once before because of her hideous scars, Shianne refuses to give in to the demands of her heart for fear that Jude will flee, too, once he sees her face.

After an accident, Jude Bradford is sightless. When his best friend, Owen, who has been staying with him, is called out of town, Owen sends his sister, Shianne to help him. Since it’s the holidays and help is hard to find, Jude talks Shianne into working for him. The more time he spends around her, the more he is drawn to her. Can he convince her he’s not like the others? That a scarred face or a missing limb doesn’t matter to him? Or will her fears of him fleeing once he sees her face keep her from returning his love?
