Daily Light for March 7

Recommended Posts

Morning

“For your Maker is your husband, the LORD of hosts is his name.”

This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.—You shall no more be termed Forsaken . . . but you shall be called My Delight Is in Her . . . for the LORD delights in you . . . and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you.—He has sent me . . . to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion—to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit.

I will greatly rejoice in the LORD; my soul shall exult in my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation; . . . as a bridegroom decks himself like a priest with a beautiful headdress, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

“And I will betroth you to me forever. I will betroth you to me in righteousness and in justice, in steadfast love and in mercy.”

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

Isa. 54:5; Eph. 5:32; Isa. 62:4, 5; Isa. 61:1-3; Isa. 61:10; Hos. 2:19; Rom. 8:35 (Read full verses...)

Evening

My times are in your hand.

“All his holy ones were in his hand.”—And the word of the LORD came to [Elijah], “Depart from here and turn eastward and hide yourself by the brook Cherith, which is east of the Jordan. You shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.” . . . Then the word of the LORD came to him, “Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there. Behold, I have commanded a widow there to feed you.”

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. . . . Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.”

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.—Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

Ps. 31:15; Deut. 33:3; 1 Kings 17:2-4, 8, 9; Matt. 6:25, 32; Prov. 3:5, 6; 1 Pet. 5:7 (Read full verses...)
