Jonathan Bagster's Daily Light on the Daily Path (Daily)

Morning:

Our God hath not forsaken us.

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial
which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto
you.--If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with
sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if
ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are
ye bastards, and not sons.

The LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the
LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

The LORD will not forsake his people for his great name's
sake: because it hath pleased the LORD to make you his people.--
Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have
compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet
will I not forget thee.--Happy [is he] that [hath] the God of
Jacob for his help, whose hope [is] in the LORD his God.

Shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night
unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will
avenge them speedily.

Ps 146:5 Lu 18:7,8


Evening:

He that overcometh shall inherit all things.

If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all
men most miserable.--Now they desire a better [country], that
is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their
God: for he hath prepared for them a city.--An inheritance
incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved
in heaven for you.

All things are yours; . . . the world, or life, or death, or
things present, or things to come; all are yours.--Eye hath not
seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man,
the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But
God hath revealed [them] unto us by his Spirit.

Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we
have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.--Let us lay
aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset [us],
and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
