DAILY?READINGS: Gen. 8:20 to 9:29; Job 11-12; Matt. 6:1-18

And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? 1 Peter 3:13

Here is a special reminder of protection from the Lord. Does it guarantee that we will never be harmed for righteousness sake? Not at all, since many believers have suffered at the hands of persecutors through the centuries. However, being armed with this promise and knowing that He goes before us, we will have holy boldness to advance in His name. Whatever the Lord may be calling you to do, don’t hold back but move ahead. Remember, we are more than conquerors through Him and He will keep us safe until our life work is complete.
—Mark Kolchin

On every hand the foe we find, drawn up in dread array.
Let tents of ease be left behind and onward to the fray. —John Yates
