Daily Light on the Daily Path
by Jonathan Bagster
Sunday, March 3rd
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Trust in him at all times; [ye] people, pour out your heart before him: God [is] a refuge for us.
I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. Be ye not as the horse, [or] as the mule, [which] have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee. Many sorrows [shall be] to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.--Thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This [is] the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
And he said unto him, If thy presence go not [with me], carry us not up hence. For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? [is it] not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that [are] upon the face of the earth.
The prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Thou shalt have treasure in heaven: . . . come [and] follow me.--I [am] . . . thy exceeding great reward.
Well done, [thou] good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.--They shall reign for ever and ever.
Ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.-- The crown of life.--A crown of righteousness.-- An incorruptible [crown].
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me.--So shall we ever be with the Lord.
I reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
