DAILY READINGS: Joshua 20:1-21:45; Isaiah 14:1-32; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-28

Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity. Hebrews 5:2

Have you ever wondered why Aaron was the high priest and not Moses. Without doubt, Moses was the chief person of Israel’s history. Yet God chose Aaron. While Moses was sheltered in Pharaoh’s palace Aaron was with the people feeling the sting of the taskmaster’s whip. The difficulties Aaron experienced uniquely qualified him for the work of high priest. Dear believer remember the difficulties you have been called to go through have a great purpose. The Lord can use your pain to encourage and refresh God’s people. —Sid Halsband

Morning by morning new mercies I see.
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me! —T. O. Chisholm
