2 Chronicles 1:1-2:18; Ezekiel 27:1-36; John 10:1-18

Lead me in thy truth, and teach me…on thee do I wait all the day. Psalm 25:5

Late in 2017, the bell tower of the clock at Westminster in London, Big Ben, was silenced to allow a prolonged period of refurbishment. The clock has five bells—four of them sound the quarter hours to a chime to accord with the lyrics of Handel’s Messiah— “All through this hour, Lord, be my guide; And by Thy power, no foot shall slide”. It is a reminder to seek the Lord’s help and guidance for every moment of every hour of the day and to be receptive to His leading and His teaching. —Brian Powlesland

God will take care of you through all the day,
Shielding your footsteps, directing your way;
He is your Shepherd, Protector and Guide,
Leading His children where still waters glide. —Fanny J. Crosby
