Leviticus 17:1-18:30; Psalm 119:145-176; Mark 6:30-56

As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. Psalm 18:30

When circumstances are beyond our control, we are to remember that God’s ways are always perfect. We are not told that we will understand what is happening, but we are told that we are to trust and He will be our shield and preserve us. We see a young widow stand by her husband’s grave, or a busy wife engrossed in the Lord’s work and taken, and we wonder why. But, God’s way is perfect, beyond our comprehension. —G. Frear

Your way is perfect, Your Word is tried,
In You our Rock, we always hide;
You keep us from the forces ’round,
Your peace encircles and surrounds. —G. F.

DAILY READINGS: Leviticus 17:1-18:30; Psalm 119:145-176; Mark 6:30-56

I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved. John 10:9a, NKJV

“Lord, Lord, open for us,” and He will answer and say to you, “I do not know you, where you are from,” Luke 13:25, NKJV

There were two doors in the clinic. One was open and the doctor was welcoming new patients. The other door was closed—no more room. Today the door to heaven is open to anyone who will come by faith to God—trusting in the Lord Jesus as their Saviour. Jesus said, “No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6, NKJV). Tomorrow the door could be closed. How solemn the words, “I do not know you.” Will you not come while the door is open? —Dave Spearing

I am the Door, the Saviour said, the Life-gate of the soul:
All those who enter in, are made complete and whole. —N. Johnson
