JANUARY 19TH DEVOTION
Saturday, January 19, 2013
LET ALL WHO TAKE REFUGE IN YOU REJOICE; LET THEM EVER SING FOR JOY. SPREAD YOUR PROTECTION OVER THEM, SO THAT THOSE WHO LOVE YOUR NAME MAY EXULT IN YOU. PSALM 5:11
ABIDE IN ME--FAST FALLS THE EVENTIDE;
THE DARKNESS DEEPENS--LORD, WITH ME ABIDE!
WHEN OTHER HELPERS FAIL AND COMFORTS FLEE,
HELP OF THE HELPLESS, OH, ABIDE WITH ME.
Henry F. Lyte "Abide with Me"
IF I BELIEVER THERE WERE NO GOD, THE DEPTH OF MY LONELINESS AND
DESPAIR WOULD BE INCONSOLABLE. BUT I KNOW GOD IS REAL, FOR HE HAS
ALWAYS CONSOLED ME WHEN I HAVE FELT LONELINESS OR DESPAIR. TODAY
ALLOW GOD TO COMFORT AND CONSOLE THE MOST VULNERABLE, HURTING
PLACES IN YOUR HEART. TELL HIM ALL ABOUT IT. HE'S THERE FOR YOU.
For my friends, let God abide in you and console your hearts and let Him heal
your bodies. He is our only God and is able to perform miracles still today.
