Days of Heaven Upon Earth

Devotional For

December 4



      "From me is thy fruit found" (Hos. xiv. 8).
      
      Nothing keeps us from advancement more than ruts and drifts, and wheel-tracks into which our chariots roll and then move on in the narrow line with unchanging monotony, currents in life's stream on which we are borne in the old direction until the law of habit almost makes advance impossible.
      
      The true remedy for this is to commence at nothing; taking Christ afresh to be the Alpha and Omega for a deeper, higher, Divine experience, waiting even for His conception of thought, desire, prayer, and afraid lest our highest thought should be below His great plan of wisdom and love.
      
      O Comforter gentle and tender,
          O holy and heavenly Dove,
      We're yielding our heart in surrender,
          We're waiting Thy fulness to prove.
      
      O come as the heart-searching fire,
          O come as the sin-cleansing flood;
      Consume us with holy desire,
          And fill with the fulness of God.
      
      Anoint us with gladness and healing;
          Baptize us with power from on high;
      O come with filling and sealing
          While low at the Thy footstool we lie.
