Nehemiah 4:1-23; Haggai 1:1-15; Revelation 9:1-21

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me. Psalm 138:7
Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness. Psalm 112:4

No matter how dark the situation, the Lord provides the resources needed to sustain us. The promises of His Word, the help of the Holy Spirit, the fellowship of like-minded believers—all these and more provide the balm to revive our hearts and renew our spirits as we make our way toward heaven. Don’t linger under the juniper tree (1 Kgs. 19). Help is on the way! —Mark Kolchin

His oath, His covenant, His blood support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way, He then is all my hope and stay.
On Christ the solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand. —E. Mote
