Instead of our normal daily devotion today, I thought I would share with you a sample from Daily Light, the devotional book we are sending to those who make a donation to Harvest Ministries during the month of January. Daily Light groups verses with common themes together for short morning and evening readings. This book has been a real blessing to Cathe and me over the years. Here is today's morning reading.
I am the LORD . . . they shall not be ashamed who wait for me. ♦ Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord. ♦ You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Trust in the LORD forever, for in YAH, the LORD, is everlasting strength. ♦ My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved. ♦ I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed.
God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us. This hope we have as an anchor for the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus.
