Leviticus 4:27-5:13; Psalm 104:1-35; Acts 27:1-26

When thou art in tribulation…if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice…he will not forsake thee… nor forget the covenant. Deuteronomy 4:30-31

In the player’s entrance at Centre Court at Wimbledon are inscribed two lines from a poem by Rudyard Kipling entitled “If”. The words for players and all to read are “If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster, and treat those two imposters just the same”. It is easy to live with Triumph in our lives, but it takes trust and belief in the Lord to give us the victory in Disaster, when things are not going the way we would wish. May you know His strength and gain the victory today. —Brian Powlesland

Though dark my path, and sad my lot, let me be still and murmur not,
Or breathe the prayer divinely taught, “Thy will be done.”—C. Elliott
