2 Chronicles 36:1-23; Daniel 3:1-30; 2 John 1:1-13

As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever. Psalm 125:2

Elisha’s servant was fearful when he realized the city of Dothan was surrounded by the Syrian army. Elisha prayed that the Lord would open the servant’s eyes to see that they were compassed about by God’s hosts (2 Kgs. 6:8-23). We, too, are surrounded by the enemies’ forces, but we must remember “The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them” (Ps. 34:7). —Wm. H. Gustafson

Safe in Christ! Safe in Christ!
He’s their glory ever;
None can pluck them from His hand,
They shall perish never. —H. D’Arcy Champney
