DAILY READINGS: 1 Kings:15:33-16:34; Jeremiah 27-28; Col:4:2-18
...why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent. Psalm:22:1-2
Most Christians have felt the sorrow of what we mistakenly feel to be unanswered prayer. Bound by short-term thinking and false expectations, we can begin to harbour doubt and despair. Our Lord Jesus was tempted in all points like as we (yet without sin), and this part of our experience is no exception. How reassuring it is to know that there is a great High Priest that we can go to with our deepest and most personal hurts. —Rick Morse
Be still my soul, the waves and winds still know;
His voice who ruled them, while He dwelt below. —Katharina von Schlegel
