We trust that, by the Father’s grace, and the Spirit’s ministry, the None But the Hungry Heart devotionals have enabled you to rest in the Son. Number 12 completes the first series, and is being followed by the None But the Hungry Heart-Advanced.

What a wonderful day of emancipation when you come to the end of your own deadly doings and find yourself shut up to the Lord Jesus and His rest in glory!

Whereas you had cried from your heart, “Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would fly away, and be at rest,” you now find your rest is near at hand, nearer than breathing, closer than hands and feet.

You find your all in the Lord Jesus Christ, and there you are. The boat of your life which, with all your toiling and rowing, had been brought no nearer its haven of rest, has immediately arrived at the land. In His glorious presence with its fulness of joy there is no absence, no distance, no departure, no separation.” -L.E.M.

“For this cause also thank we God without ceasing because, when ye received the Word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it, not as the word of men but as it is in truth, the Word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe” (1 Thess. 2:13).
