1 Samuel 18:6-19:7; Isaiah 59:1-21; Romans 4:23-5:11
Now after the death of Joshua it came to pass, that the children
of Israel asked the Lord, saying, Who shall go up for us against
the Canaanites first, to fight against them? Judges 1:1
It is not uncommon for us to experience a dry time in our spiritual
life shortly after times of victory and blessing. One reason is a
tendency to think that our previous victory has come because of
our strength. The truth is that His strength has been made perfect
in our weakness. Continued leaning on Him will bring us back to
a place of joy. —G. C. G.
I need Thee, precious Saviour! For I am very blind,
A weak and foolish wanderer, with dark and evil mind.
I need Thy light, Lord Jesus! To tread the thorny road,
To guide me safe to glory, where I shall see my God.
