Morning

The Lord will be the source of your confidence, and he will guard your foot from being caught in a trap. — Prov 3:26 NET

Certainly your angry judgment upon men will bring you praise; you reveal your anger in full measure.—The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord like channels of water; he turns it wherever he wants.—When a person’s ways are pleasing to the Lord, he even reconciles his enemies to himself.

I rely on the Lord, I rely on him with my whole being; I wait for his assuring word. I yearn for the Lord, more than watchmen do for the morning, yes, more than watchmen do for the morning.—I sought the Lord’s help and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.

“The everlasting God is a refuge, and underneath you are his eternal arms; he has driven out enemies before you, and has said, ’Destroy!’”—“My blessing is on those people who trust in me, who put their confidence in me.”

What then shall we say about these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Ps 76:10, Prov 21:1, Prov 16:7, Ps 130:5-6, Ps 34:4, Deut 33:27, Jer 17:7, Rom 8:31


Evening

Encouragement in Christ,… comfort provided by love,.. fellowship in the Spirit. — Phil 2:1 NET

“Man, born of woman, lives but a few days, and they are full of trouble. He grows up like a flower and then withers away; he flees like a shadow, and does not remain.”—My flesh and my heart may grow weak, but God always protects my heart and gives me stability.

“The Father,… will give you another Advocate to be with you forever… the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name.”—Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles so that we may be able to comfort those experiencing any trouble with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

If we believe that Jesus died and rose again, so also we believe that God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep…. And so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

Job 14:1-2, Ps 73:26, John 14:16, John 14:26, 2 Cor 1:3-4, 1 Thess 4:14, 1 Thess 4:17-18
