Praying and waiting


Praying and waiting

‘And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, 
if we ask anything according to his will, 
he heareth us: and if we know that he hear us, 
whatsoever we ask, 
we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.’ 
1 John 5:14–15

Suggested Further Reading: 
Psalm 22:1–24

I saw the other day a greyhound coursing a hare.
 The moment the hare ran through the hedge out of the greyhound’s sight, the race was over, for he could not follow where he could not see. 

The true hound hunts by scent, but the greyhound only by sight. Now there are some Christians too much like the greyhound; they only follow the Lord as far as they can see his manifest mercy; but the true child of God hunts by faith, and when he cannot see the mercy, he scents it and still pursues it, till at last he lays hold upon it.

 Why, man, you say you have had no answers! How know you? God may have answered you, though you have not seen the answer. 

This is a riddle, but it is a fact. 
God has not promised to give you the particular mercy in kind, but he will give it you somehow or other. 

If I pay my debts in gold, no man can blame me because I do not pay them in silver; and if God gives you spiritual mercies in abundance, instead of temporal ones, he has heard your prayer. 

You may pray, like Paul, thrice, that the thorn in the flesh may be taken away from you: God’s answer is given, and it is, ‘My grace is sufficient for thee.’ 

Christ prayed that God might hear him; he was heard in that he feared, but he had not the cup taken from him. 
No, but he had an angel to comfort and strengthen him; and this was in truth an answer, though not such as the prayer seemed to require.

 You have had an answer, and if God has heard you but once, pluck up courage and go again.

For meditation:

 It is one thing to ask God for an answer (Job 31:35; 
Jeremiah 42:1–6), but quite another to recognise it. 
We either humbly accept God’s answer and draw near to him (Job 42:5–6) 
or proudly reject it and withdraw from him because it doesn’t suit us (Jeremiah 43:1–4).

Pray for Jesus


Pray for Jesus

‘Prayer also shall be made for him continually.’ 
Psalm 72:15

Suggested Further Reading:
 Matthew 6:9–13

‘Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world,’ 
is the blessed assurance that Jesus is our Captain in the great fight of faith, and is still present in the battle field. 

His great cause is here, 
his enterprise and business are here below. 
The work which he undertook to accomplish is not yet accomplished in the person of every one of his elect. 

His blood has been fully shed and his atonement has been perfected, but those for whom the atonement was made are not yet all ingathered. 

Many sheep he has which are not yet of his fold. 
We are therefore to pray for him, that the good work which he has undertaken may be prospered, and that one by one those whom his Father gave him may be brought to reconciliation and to eternal life.

 Brethren, the Lord Jesus Christ describes himself as being still persecuted and still suffering. He said to Saul, ‘Saul, Saul, 
why persecutest thou me?’
 He calls his people himself; they are his mystical body; 
and in praying for the church we pray for Christ. 

He is the head of the body, and you cannot pray for the body except you pray for the head. We must put them all into one prayer. 

He is still struggling with the hosts of darkness in his church, still striving for the victory over sin in his people, 
and his people are waiting and longing for his second advent, which shall fulfil their brightest hopes. 

We must still pray for him, not personally, but relatively; 
for his cause, for his kingdom, for his gospel, 
for his people, for his blood-bought ones who as yet are in the ruins of the fall, for his second coming, and glorious reign. 

In this sense, I take it, the text is meant that 
‘prayer also shall be made for him continually.’

For meditation: 

In the first half of the Lord’s Prayer, 
the Lord teaches us to pray for the Lord 
(thy name, thy kingdom, thy will—Matthew 6:9–10);
 after that we pray for ourselves. 
Do you pray for him? If you are one of his people, 
don’t forget that he is continually interceding for you
 (Hebrews 7:25).

Self-delusion


Self-delusion

‘Many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, 
and shall not be able.’ 
Luke 13:24

Suggested Further Reading: 
Luke 12:15–21

I marvel not that so many are deceived, when I see the careless way in which you deal with religion. 
When men have to do with their estates, they are very careful; they fee a lawyer to go back over the title-deeds perhaps for two or three hundred years. 

In trade they will hurry hither and thither to attend to their commercial engagements; they would not launch into speculations, nor would they run great risks; but the soul, 
the poor soul, how men play with it as a toy, and despise it as if it were worthless earth. 

Two or three minutes in the morning when they first roll out of bed, two or three odd minutes in the evening, when they are nearly asleep—the fag-ends of the day given to their souls,
 and all the best part given to the body! And then, the Sabbath! How carelessly spent by most people! With what indifference do you lend your ears too often to the preaching of the Word! 
It is an old song; you have heard it so many times; heaven has become a trifle to you, hell is almost a jest, eternity a notion, and death but a bugbear. 

Alas! it is a marvel that there are not more deceived.

 The wonder is that any find the gate, that any discover eternal life, when we are so, so mad, so foolish, so insane, as to trifle where we ought to be awfully in earnest, and to play and toy, where the whole heart is all too little to be given to a work of such dread, such everlasting importance. 

God help us, since it is so easy to be deceived, to search, and watch, and look, and test, and try, that we be not found castaways at the last!

For meditation: 

Satan does not need to deceive us, when we are doing his dirty work by deceiving ourselves. 
Beware of delusions of wisdom (1 Corinthians 3:18), 
self-satisfaction (Galatians 6:3), hearing God’s Word without applying it (James 1:22), a loose tongue (James 1:26) 
and claims to sinless perfection (1 John 1:8). 
These are all paths to self-deceit.
