It pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief.

Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour. Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. -- Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: never-theless not my will, but thine, be done. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

Being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. -- Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. -- For I came down from heaven, not to do mine will, but the will of him that sent me. -- The cup which my father hath given me, shall I not drink it?

The Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. -- My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, -- Mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth.

Ye that are the Lord's remembrancers, keep not silence.

Thou ... hast made us unto our God kings and priests. -- The sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow with the trumpets; and they shall be to you for an ordinance for ever throughout your generations. And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the Lord your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.

I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain. -- Their voice was heard, and their prayer came up to his holy dwelling place, even unto heaven. -- The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. -- Pray one for another: the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Come, Lord Jesus. -- Make no tarrying, O my God. -- Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God.

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

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. -- After that ye believed ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession.

Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed; blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. -- Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

We walk by faith, not by sight. -- Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.

It is I; be not afraid.

When I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. -- I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.

Woe is me! for I am undone; ... mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: and he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. -- I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.

If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.

John 6:20; Rev 1:17,18; Isa 43:25; Isa 6:5‑7; Isa 44:22; 1 John 2:1

For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. -- Forasmuch ... as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death. that is, the devil. -- And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them. -- I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

We spend our years as a tale that is told. The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. -- Here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come. -- I am the Lord, I change not. -- Our conversation (citizenship) is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ; who shall change our vile body that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself. -- The creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope.

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. -- Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

Awake to righteousness, and sin not.

Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

It is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. -- Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. -- Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed: and make you a new heart and a new spirit. -- Lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. -- Little children, abide in him that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

My sheep hear my voice.

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: If any man hear my voice, and open the door, 1 will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled. I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.

Speak; for thy servant heareth. -- When Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house. And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully. -- I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.

John 10:27; Rev 3:20; Song 5:2,6; 1 Sam 3:10; Luke 19:5,6; Psa 85:8

Wednesday 11-May, 2022
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost, which is given unto us. -- Ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God. -- He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself.

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. -- In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace. -- That in the ages to come he might shew the ex-ceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

Reproach hath broken my heart.

Is not this the carpenter's son? -- Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? -- Say we not well that thou are a Samaritan, and hast a devil? -- He casteth out devils through the prince of the devils. -- We know that this man is a sinner. -- He deceiveth the people. -- This man blasphemeth. -- Behold a man gluttonous and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners.

It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. -- This is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that we should follow his steps. Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: who when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously. -- If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye.

Thursday 12-May, 2022
Pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

The true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. -- Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. -- When ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any.

Without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. -- Let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea, driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord.

If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me. -- My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: and he is the propitiation for our sins.

1 Tim 2:8; John 4:23,24; Isa 58:9; Mark 11:25; Heb 11:6; Jas 1:6,7; Psa 66:18; 1 John 2:1,2

Friday 13-May, 2022
My heart panteth, my strength faileth me.

Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For when I am weak, then am I strong.

When (Peter) saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? -- If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small. -- He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. -- The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. -- Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power.

Friday 13-May, 2022
The fellowship of His sufferings.

It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord.

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. -- In the world ye shall have tribulation. -- Because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

I looked for some to take pity, but there was none. -- At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me.

The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. -- Here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.

Let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Phl 3:10; Matt 10:25; Isa 53:3; John 16:33; John 15:19; Psa 69:20; 2 Tim 4:16; Matt 8:20; Heb 13:14; Heb 12:1,2

They overcame ... by the blood of the Lamb.

Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died. -- It is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. -- I am the LORD. The blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you.

There is ... no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.

What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Rev 12:11; Rom 8:33,34; Lev 17:11; Exo 12:12,13; Rom 8:1; Rev 7:13,14; Rev 1:5,6

Saturday 14-May, 2022
God shall wipe away all tears: ... there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, ... for the former things are passed away.

He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it. -- Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended. -- The inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity. -- The voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. -- Sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction. -- The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. Then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

The things which are not seen are eternal.

Rev 21:4; Isa 25:8; Isa 60:20; Isa 33:24; Isa 65:19; Isa 35:10; Hos 13:14; 1 Cor 15:26,54; 2 Cor 4:18

Sunday 15-May, 2022
Raised up together in Christ Jesus.

Fear not; ... I am he that liveth. -- Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am.

We are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. -- He is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead. -- Ye are complete in him, which is the head.

Forasmuch ... as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil: and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

This corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

Eph 2:6; Rev 1:17,18; John 17:24; Eph 5:30; Col 1:18; Col 2:10; Heb 2:14,15; 1 Cor 15:53,54

Sunday 15-May, 2022
A servant of Jesus Christ.

Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. -- If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour. -- Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

What things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. -- Being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. -- Thou art no more a servant, but a son.

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh.

Rom 1:1; John 13:13; John 12:26; Matt 11:29,30; Phl 3:7; Rom 6:22; John 15:15; Gal 4:7; Gal 5:1,13

Monday 16-May, 2022
I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel.

His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor. -- Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding, I have strength. -- Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. -- 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.

O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps. -- 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. -- Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established. -- He knoweth the way that I take. -- Man's goings are of the Lord: how can a man then understand his own way?

Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. -- This God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.

Monday 16-May, 2022
I am the Lord your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them.

As he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of con-versation. -- He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him. -- Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God. -- Whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything, as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God. -- Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes.

Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. -- The God of peace, ... make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ.

Ezek 20:19; 1 Pet 1:15; 1 John 2:6,29; 1 Cor 7:19; Jas 2:10; 2 Cor 3:5; Psa 119:33; Phl 2:12,13; Heb 13:20,21

Tuesday 17-May, 2022
I have exalted one chosen out of the people.

Verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. In all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren. -- Upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it. -- The Son of man ... which is in heaven. -- Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

He made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow. -- Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.
