Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

“And the Lord appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the Lord Who appeared unto him. And he removed from thence unto a mountain” (Gen 12:7,8).

Wherever the Lord appeared to him, there Abraham built an altar. Every visitation of God, every promise from God, should take us to a new consecration (altar), and lead us to a mountain-top experience.

Wherever the Lord sent Abraham, he built an altar to the Lord – signifying that he was willing to serve Him wherever He placed him. The altar was a witness of his service to his God. Wherever we go, we should leave behind a spiritual fragrance of our service for the Lord. Lot, Abraham’s nephew, never built an altar; no wonder he had no testimony where he lived (Gen 19:9 & 14).

“It is right that you should begin again every day. There is no better way to finish the spiritual life than to be ever beginning it over again,” said Francis De Sales.

Child of God, it’s important that we keep offering ourselves afresh to the Lord every now and then – every morning, every night, why, at every juncture in our life. Then we will have fresh grace, renewed strength and new joys as we go on in our journey. There will be no room for weariness, faint-heartedness or dreariness. We can enjoy every bit of our journey – be it across hill or vale, through fire or water, in rain or in shine. Nothing can deter us. It will be ‘faster, higher, stronger’ all the way.
