The communion of the Holy Ghost be with you all.

I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. -- He shall not speak of himself. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

He that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. -- Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

Grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. -- The Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we would pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

2 Cor 13:14; John 14:16,17; John 16:13,14; Rom 5:5; 1 Cor 6:17; 1 Cor 6:19; Eph 4:30; Rom 8:26

My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the Lord.

As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. -- For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD?

My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand. -- One pearl of great price. -- The prince of the kings of the earth.

His head is as the most fine gold, his locks are bushy, and black as a raven. -- The head over all things. -- He is the head of the body, the church.

His cheeks are as a bed of spices, as sweet flowers. -- He could not be hid.

His lips like lilies, dropping sweet smelling myrrh. -- Never man spake like this man.

His countenance is as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars. -- Make thy face to shine upon thy servant. -- LORD, lift thou up the light thy countenance upon us.

Friday 22-September, 2023
O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

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.

I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. -- He ... became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. -- In the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered.

Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? -- Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Matt 26:39; John 12:27; John 6:38; Phl 2:8; Heb 5:7,8; Matt 26:53; Luke 24:46,47

Friday 22-September, 2023
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.

Saturday 23-September, 2023
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.

Rev 21:7; 1 Cor 15:19; Heb 11:16; 1 Pet 1:4; 1 Cor 3:21,22; 1 Cor 2:9,10; 2 John 8; Heb 12:1

Saturday 23-September, 2023
It is good for me to draw near to God.

LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth. -- A day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a door keeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. -- Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.

The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. -- Therefore will the LORD wait that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.

Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us: ... let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience.

Psa 73:28; Psa 26:8; Psa 84:10; Psa 65:4; Lam 3:25; Isa 30:18; Heb 10:19,20,22

Sunday 24-September, 2023
Ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. -- Thou are fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips. -- All bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth.

Ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. -- He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself. -- We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen.

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. -- I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.

He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. -- Unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. -- As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

2 Cor 8:9; John 1:14; Psa 45:2; Luke 4:22; 1 Pet 2:3; 1 John 5:10; John 3:11; Psa 34:8; Song 2:3; 2 Cor 12:9; Eph 4:7; 1 Pet 4:10

Sunday 24-September, 2023
Let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

Now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ. -- We glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope.

It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. -- Ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance. Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. -- Our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts.

James 1:4; 1 Pet 1:6,7; Rom 5:3-4; Lam 3:26; Heb 10: 34-36; 2Th 2:16-17

Monday 25-September, 2023
God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ.

Judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God. -- The Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: -- because he is the Son of man. -- The Son of God, -- hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire.

They say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?--These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes. -- There is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.

Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee. -- Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

Rom 2:16; 1Cor 4:5; Joh 5:22,27; Rev 2:18; Ps 73:11; Ps 50:21; Lu 12:2; Ps 38:9; Ps 26:2

Monday 25-September, 2023
A God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

Him that judgeth righteously. -- We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. -- Every one of us shall give account of himself to God. -- The soul that sinneth it shall die.

Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd. -- The LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. -- Mercy and truth are met together: righteousness and peace have kissed each other. -- Mercy rejoiceth against judgment. -- The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

A just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. -- Just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. -- Justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.

Deut 32:4; 1 Pet 2:23; 2 Cor 5:10; Rom 14:12; Ezek 18:4; Zech 13:7; Isa 53:6; Psa 85:10; Isa 2:13; Rom 6:23; Isa 45:21; Rom 3:26; Rom 3:24

Tuesday 26-September, 2023
Death is swallowed up in victory.

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

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.

If we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

In all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

1 Cor 15:54; 1 Cor 15:57; Heb 2:14,15; Rom 6:8-10; Rom 6:11; Rom 8:37

Tuesday 26-September, 2023
Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.

Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.

O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. Be not wroth very sore, O LORD, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see we beseech thee, we are all thy people. -- Thou hast chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke: turn thou me, and I shall be turned; for thou art the LORD my God. Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I was instructed, I smote upon my thigh: I was ashamed, yea, even confounded, because I did bear the reproach of my youth. -- It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.

Affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground; yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.

1 Pet 5:6; Prov 16:5; Isa 64:8,9; Jer 31:18,19; Lam 3:27; Job 5:6,7,

Wednesday 27-September, 2023
Yea, hath God said?

When the tempter came to Jesus, he said, If thou be the Son of God. -- Jesus said unto him, It is written, ... it is written, ... it is written. -- Then the devil leaveth him.

I may not return with thee. For it was said to me by the word of the LORD, Thou shalt eat no bread nor drink water there. He said unto him, I am a prophet also as thou art; and an angel spake unto me by the word of the LORD, saying, Bring him back with thee into thine house, that he may eat bread and drink water. But he lied unto him. So he went back with him. The man of God ... was disobedient unto the word of the LORD: therefore the LORD hath delivered him unto the lion, which hath torn him, and slain him, according to the word of the LORD. -- Though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. -- Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

Gen 3:1; Matt 4:3; Matt 4:4,7,10; Matt 4:11; 1 Kgs 13:16-19,26; Gal 1:8; Psa 119:11

Wednesday 27-September, 2023
They shall put my name upon the childen of Isael; and I will bless them.

O LORD our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us: but by thee only will we make mention of thy name. -- We are thine: thou never barest rule over them; they were not called by thy name.

All people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee. -- The LORD will not forsake his people for his great name's sake: because it hath pleased the LORD to make you his people.

O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name. -- Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name's sake. Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is their God? -- The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

Num 6:27; Isa 26:13; Isa 63:19; Deut 28:10; 1 Sam 12:22; Dan 9:19; Psa 79:9,10; Prov 18:10

Thursday 28-September, 2023
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

The invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead. -- He left not himself without witness. -- Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; what is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. -- They that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Psa 19:1; Rom 1:20; Acts 14:17; Psa 19:2,3; Psa 8:3,4; 1 Cor 15:41,42; Dan 12:3

Thursday 28-September, 2023
Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us.

The love of Christ, which passeth knowledge. -- Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. -- Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. -- Be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you. -- Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. -- For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. -- Christ ... suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps.

Ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. -- We ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

1 John 3:16; Eph 3:19; John 15:13; 2 Cor 8:9; 1 John 4:11; Eph 4:32; Col 3:13; Mark 10:4,5; 1 Pet 2:21; John 13:14,15; 1 John 3:16

Friday 29-September, 2023
What things soever the Father doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

The LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. -- I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart. -- My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.

Them that are sanctified by God the Father. -- He that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren.

Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD. -- The fulness of him that filleth all in all.

I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. -- This is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.

Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.

John 5:19; Prov 2:6; Luke 21:15; Psa 27:14; 2 Cor 12:9; Jude 1; Heb 2:11; Jer 23:24; Eph 1:23; Isa 43:11; John 4:42; Tit 1:4

Friday 29-September, 2023
He knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.

He knoweth our frame. -- He doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.

The foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.

He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness. -- I ... will refine them as silver is refined, ... they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, the LORD is my God.

Job 23:10; Psa 103:14; Lam 3:33; 2 Tim 2:19-21; Mal 3:3; Zech 13:9

Saturday 30-September, 2023
Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths.

Moses said unto the LORD, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee. And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest. -- He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.

The meek will he guide in judgment; and the meek will he teach his way. What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. -- 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.

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. -- I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. -- The path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

Psa 25:4; Exo 33:12-14; Psa 103:7; Psa 25:9,12; Prov 3:5,6; Psa 16:11; Psa 32:8; Prov 4:18

Saturday 30-September, 2023
The fruit of the Spirit is temperance.

Every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: but I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess: but be filled with the Spirit.

If any man will come after me let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Let us not sleep, as do others: but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober. -- Denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world: looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.
