DAILY READINGS: 2 Chronicles 18:1-19:34; Ezekiel 38:1-23; John 15:17-16:15

But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel. Philippians 1:12

Paul is again in prison—this time in Rome—chained between two soldiers, yet the verses following this one tell us that as a result, all the palace soldiers were hearing the gospel; many timid believers were becoming bold witnesses for Christ and even those who were jealous of Paul began to preach the gospel. As believers living in an increasingly godless society, if we are called upon to suffer for proclaiming God’s truth we can be sure that He will use it in some way to further His work and encourage our souls. —David Croudace

Cast thou thy care upon the Lord, the care that loads thy heart;
Take Him this moment at His word and let Him do His part. —H. Moule
