Morning

“I will be with you to rescue you.” — Jer 15:20 NET

“Can spoils be taken from a warrior, or captives be rescued from a conqueror? Indeed,” says the Lord, “captives will be taken from a warrior; spoils will be rescued from a conqueror. I will oppose your adversary and I will rescue your children…. Then all humankind will recognize that I am the Lord, your deliverer, your protector, the powerful ruler of Jacob.”—“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you! Don’t be frightened, for I am your God! I strengthen you – yes, I help you – yes, I uphold you with my saving right hand!”

We do not have a high priest incapable of sympathizing with our weaknesses, but one who has been tempted in every way just as we are, yet without sin.—Since he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted.—The Lord grants success to the one whose behavior he finds commendable. Even if he trips, he will not fall headlong, for the Lord holds his hand.

Isa 49:24-26, Isa 41:10, Heb 4:15, Heb 2:18, Ps 37:23-24


Evening

He has satisfied those who thirst, and those who hunger he has filled with food. — Ps 107:9 NET

You have experienced the Lord’s kindness.

O God, you are my God! I long for you! My soul thirsts for you, my flesh yearns for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water. Yes, in the sanctuary I have seen you, and witnessed your power and splendor.—I desperately want to be in the courts of the Lord’s temple. My heart and my entire being shout for joy to the living God.—I have a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far.

When I awake you will reveal yourself to me.—“They will never go hungry or be thirsty again, and the sun will not beat down on them, nor any burning heat, because the Lamb in the middle of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to springs of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”—They are filled with food from your house, and you allow them to drink from the river of your delicacies.—“My people will be filled to the full with the good things I provide.”

1 Pet 2:3, Ps 63:1-2, Ps 84:2, Phil 1:23, Ps 17:15, Rev 7:16-17, Ps 36:8, Jer 31:14
