DAILY READINGS: Exodus 36:1-38; Psalm 89:1-18; Acts 21:17-40

For I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow. Jeremiah 31:13

Although initially spoken to Israel, the threefold promise in the above verse offers hope to the grieving saint of God today. Are you passing through a season of sorrow and grief? God can turn your mourning into joy, comfort you, and make you rejoice from your sorrow. Jesus also was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief (Isa. 53:3), and is even now interceding for you (Heb. 7:25). —E. V.

Our great high Priest is sitting,
At God’s right hand above,
For us His hands uplifting,
In sympathy and love. —A. P. Cecil
