What is left in the basket?

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.

Receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your soul. But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

Colossians 3:16; James 1:21.22.

What is left in the basket?
Some people have an excellent memory. It is said that Cyrus, the king of Persia, remembered the names of all the soldiers in his enormous army. Whatever the capacity of our own memory is, it is mostly selective. We store and ruminate over frustration and deception experienced in daily life but soon forget our own faults and the lessons we ought to have learned. Jesus once reproached His disciples: “Is your heart still hardened? Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear? And do you not remember?” (Mark 8:18). He insisted: “Let these words sink down into your ears” (Luke 9:44). They should be kept in a safe place, just as we lock up valuable possessions where they canot be stolen.

The Word of God should penetrate our hearts like seed in well ploughed ground, where it can take root. But this demands reading, understanding and retaining so that it produces fruit in our heart and in our life.

Someone may say, “I read it, but I can‘t remember it.” It is like a basket submerged in a river and full of water. Take it out: it is empty. Well, continue reading quietly, remembering that the basket, even if it comes out empty, is thoroughly clean. The Word of God has a power of its own: it is effective in all who believe (cf. 1 Thessalonians 2:13).

Today’s reading: Ecclesiastes 3:1-22 · Mark 5:15-20

Discouragement is a great tool in the hands of the enemy. Proverbs 13:12 says,

�Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. �

The devil usually does not apply discouragement when you are in high spirits or when you are happy,...More

It is one thing to receive the anointing and another to keep growing on it. There are people who had the anointing, but today, everything has virtually ebbed out. It is possible to connect with the Holy Spirit and to continue to flow in the power of the anointing even at increasing levels. If this is your desire,...More

One thing that robs many people of peace is the uncertainty of the future. If you are living in right standing with God, your future is guaranteed not by man or by the economy of your nation, but by God. Hence, Isaiah 3:10 says:
“Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat...More
