One Year Bible reading today:
“Thus says the LORD: stand . . . speak . . . do not diminish a word” (Jeremiah 26:2). That takes courage.
“Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you” (2 Thessalonians 3:1). I think often of this prayerful plea by Paul.
“Restore us, O God of our salvation . . . Will you not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You?” (Psalm 85:4,6). A revival of joy in God. In God alone.
