DAILY READINGS: Exodus 20:1-26; Psalms 60:1-61:8; Acts 11:1-18

Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Proverbs 30:5

It is our faith in God and His Word that provides our protection. We are securely guarded by the sure Word of God. We can trust it not to break or crack. Let us use it, keeping God’s Word before us at all times to keep our minds and souls. —D. Pickup

His banner over us is love, our sword the Word of God
We tread the road the saints above with shouts of triumph trod.
By faith they, like a whirlwind’s breath, swept on o’er ev’ry field;
The faith by which they conquered death is still our shining shield.
Faith is the victory! Faith is the victory!
Oh, glorious victory, that overcomes the world. —John H. Yates
