Hard times may well be the plight of the righteous— they may often seem overwhelmed— but the Eternal rescues the righteous from what oppresses them.
Father, fulfill Your desire in us.
1 John 2:17
The world and everything that people want in it are passing away, but the person who does what God wants lives forever.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
The righteous run to it and are safe.
Mark 5:26, 28-29
She had suffered a great deal from many doctors, and over the years she had spent everything she had to pay them, but she had gotten no better. In fact, she had gotten worse. For she thought to herself, “If I can just touch His robe, I will be healed.” Immediately the bleeding stopped, and she could feel in her body that she had been healed of her terrible condition.
Give thanks to the Lord, because He is good. His faithful love continues forever.
So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your strength comes from God’s grace, not from rules about food, which don’t help those who follow them.
