DAILY READINGS: Exodus 39:1-43; Psalms 92:1-93:5; Acts 23:12-35

He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no one to intercede; then his own arm brought him salvation. Isaiah 59:16

In Israel’s day the prophet described God looking upon earth and seeing no man who loved truth, righteousness and judgment. Thus no one had the desire or the capacity to intercede. So God did it Himself. It reminds us of our lost, sinful condition. There was no man who could save us from hell until the Lord Jesus Christ interceded. God stretched out His own arms on the cross and paid the price for our sins. He is our salvation. He is our hope. There is no other. Friend, trust Him today. —George Ferrier

O boundless salvation! Deep ocean of love,
O fullness of mercy, Christ brought from above. —W. Booth
