DAILY?READINGS: Gen. 46:1-47:27; Psalm 25:1-22; Matt. 26:31-56
And Jonathan Saul’s son arose, and went to David into the wood, and strengthened his hand in God. 1 Samuel 23:16
The bond that existed between Jonathan and David was very special. It was based on their devotion to God and their commitment to carry out His purposes. Jonathan was a sensitive man who felt the injustice that David was experiencing in the wilderness. He found him and strengthened his hand in God. Do you know anybody in the “woods”? Sometimes you have to look for them, but many of the Lord’s people are discouraged and would benefit from having their hand strengthened in God. —Sid Halsband
Fear not, He is with thee; oh, be not dismayed!
He—He is thy God, and will still give thee aid. —Richard Keene
