Day 37 - Jeremiah 17:7-8 "But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit." (NKJV) The LORD promises strength to the weary sinner, but that strength comes through the living waters of His Word. We dare not neglect it!
Day 36 - Proverbs 18:10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe. (NKJV) This verse tells us that the NAME of the LORD carries weight and is the place where we have refuge, and is the place for us to run to in trouble!
Day 34 - Eph. 2:7 "so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus." (ESV) The world often confuses "kindness" with being polite or nice. God isn't "nice" but He is kind and good. He is just and He displays His kindness in grace toward us in the actions of Jesus Christ.
Day 33 - Psalm 126:5-6 Those who sow in tears Shall reap in joy. He who continually goes forth weeping, Bearing seed for sowing, Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, Bringing his sheaves with him. (NKJV) The LORD reminds of the rich rewards that He gives us in this life as we use our gifts and abilities now in His service and as we look joyfully to the end of our sorrows in this world of sin.
Day 32 - Galatians 3:26-27 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. (NKJV) How often do we look to our Baptism for hope? We should. Paul tells us that through God's working in Baptism we have put on Christ and been received in God's family.
Day 31 - 1 Thessalonians 4:13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. (ESV) The believer has a hope that the unbeliever does not: That death is not something to fear. Because of Jesus, death is nothing more than a sleep from which our God will awaken us!
