|Go Forward | James R. Miller, 1908||Exhortation|
There is always danger that we become contented with our routine, and indisposed to go beyond it.... But, besides this monotonous round... there should always be something larger going on. "You have gone around this mountain long enough: turn northward."

|Hear God’s Voice and Follow Him | Fred Pruitt, 2012||Exhortation|
Brothers and sisters in Christ, let us keep in our hearts a love for the truth and the crucified way, lest we be led astray by any of the deceivers around us.... Those who get grounded and settled in the truth will not be blown about by different winds of doctrine.

|Over-Waiting for God | James R. Miller, 1896||Exhortation|
There are times when closet prayer is not the duty of the hour.... We may think we are honoring God by waiting... but really we are dishonoring Him by lack of present faith and ready obedience. Blessing... cannot be given to us until we go forth to get it.

|Take Time | George D. Watson, 1898||Exhortation|
To rush forward in our thinking, speaking, and doing, demonstrates a lack of faith in God, and how little we perceive His presence and dominion over all things. It is true in a thousand different things that "he that believeth shall not make haste."

|The Salvation of All | Andrew Murray, 1900||Exhortation|
If we only knew God and His love, how we would look upon every person we see as one... for whom [He] longs. We would begin to wonder at the mystery of grace that has taken the Church... as a partner in the great work of making that love known.

|The Voice of One Crying in the Wilderness | Mark P. Spinks, 2010||Exhortation|
To be the voice of one crying in the wilderness in this way... is to abandon all human planning and direction.... It is to forsake that peculiar fleshly confidence that comes from human reasoning and second-guessing God.

|Walk in Love | George D. Watson, 1894||Exhortation|
To walk in love—to speak, to act, to purpose, with the love of God pervading our every movement—is the best and sublimest form of existence. To do this there must be a thorough abandonment of self-will, self-opinion, and self-desire.

|Yield Not to Discouragement | Fred Pruitt||Exhortation|
When you yield to discouragement, by that act you are saying that you do not believe God's Word, and you have listened to Satan's lying vanities and put yourself out of the reach of God's mercy until you confess and repent from the heart.
