Genesis 50:1-26; Psalm 30:1-12; Matthew 27:27-44

They soon forgot His works; They did not wait for His counsel. Psalm 106:13, NKJV

Humans are forgetful, especially when times are difficult. Our Lord God has been good to us in the past. Why would He forsake us now in our hour of deepest need? Let’s remember His good works toward us and wait upon Him for guidance. His loving counsel will see us through whatever we are facing. —Annette Baal

Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest. —Frances Ridley Havergal

DAILY READINGS: Gen. 50; Psalm 30:1-12; Matt. 27:27-44

But his citizens…sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us. Luke 19:14 , KJV
For he must reign. 1 Corinthians 15:25, KJV

It is easy to follow the godless crowd and say, “I will not have this man to reign over me.” Easy, but foolish, for God has said He must reign; He shall reign, and every knee shall bow before Him (Romans 14:11; Philippians 2:10). Friend you must face Christ one day. Depending on your choice you will face Him either as Judge or Saviour. Why not turn from your sin and rebellion today and trust the One who died for you on the cross? —David Croudace

Jesus shall reign wher e’er the sun,
Does his successive journeys run;
His kingdom spread from shore to shore,
Til moons shall wax and wane no more. —Isaac Watts
