DAILY?READINGS: Gen. 43:1-34; Psalms 20:1-21:13; Matt. 25:1-30

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee. Isaiah 26:3

We may be tempted to accept these words in our heads, as truth, but fail to be convinced in our soul; particularly so if we are enduring affliction. Underlying these words is God’s desire to strengthen, stabilise and teach His beloved children—to see His actions as His permissive will and not punishment. —Drew Craig

A mighty fortress is our God, A bulwark never failing,
Our helper He, amid the flood, Of mortal ills prevailing. —Martin Luther
