DAILY READINGS: Ezra 1:1-2; Daniel 4:1-37; 3 John

He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Hebrews 13:5

I like to ask the Lord to wake me each day with a verse from His Word. This morning the verse was the one above. What a promise! As I meditated, my heart focused on the words “He” and “never.” He has committed Himself to keeping me. He is the One to whom all power has been given. If He says it, that is enough for me. Never! There will never be a single moment when He fails in His work. He will never
leave or forsake me. If He says never, it cannot be changed and I can fully rest in Him and His promise. —C. Watson

Till then, ’tis the path Thou hast trod,
My delight and my comfort shall be,
I’m content with Thy staff and Thy rod,
Till with Thee all Thy glory I see. —J. N. D.
