Every Day with Jesus
Daily Devotions for January 13-19, 2014
Quotes from Christians past, week 2

Once again this week, spend some prayerful moments with short, concise biblical insights written by Christians who have gone before us.

Monday, Jan 13
God has no pleasure in afflicting us, but He will not keep back even the most painful chastisement if He can but thereby guide His beloved child to come home and abide in the beloved Son.   – Andrew Murray

Lord, I ask you now to do what you have to do to keep my loved ones - and me - close to you. Amen.

Tuesday, Jan 14
We must meet the uncertainties of this world with the certainty of the world to come. – AW Tozer

Lord Jesus, so much of this world is uncertain. But the world to come is not. And you are not. Empower me to rest in you. Amen.

Wednesday, Jan 15
"The Lord is my shepherd," is on Sunday, is on Monday, and is through every day of the week; is in January, is in December, and every month of the year; is at home, and is in China; is in peace, and, is in war; in abundance, and in penury. – Hudson Taylor

Lord, you are my Good Shepherd. Always. Forgive me for the many times I forget this. Fill me with the peace of knowing that you never leave my side. Amen.

Thursday, Jan 16
The Christian is the most contented man in the world, but he is the least contented with the world. He is like a traveler in an inn, perfectly satisfied with the inn and its accommodation, considering it as an inn, but putting quite out of all consideration the idea of making it his home. – Charles Spurgeon

Dear Jesus, in you I stand forgiven. Heaven is my home. Give me contentment with this temporary hotel. But don’t let me forget about the perfect home that awaits. Amen.

Friday, Jan 17
When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don't throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer. – Corrie Ten Boom, Holocaust survivor

Heavenly Father, when my life enters a dark tunnel, remind me you are in control. You have made me your own through faith in your Son. Move me to trust your guiding hand. Amen.

Saturday, Jan 18
God uses broken things. It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength. It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume. It is Peter, weeping bitterly, who returns to greater power than ever. – Vance Havner

Lord Jesus, break me as you need to break me. Then heal me in your Gospel. Then use me as you will. I am yours. Amen.

Sunday, Jan 19
God, you have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless till they find their rest in you. – Augustine

Lord, be my rest for my restless heart. Amen.

2 Year Reading Plan for the Bible (NIV)

Please join us in our goal to read the entire Bible over a 2 year span of time.

2 Year Reading Plan of the Bible (NIV 1984)

The Today's Light Bible helps individuals and groups read and study the entire NIV Bible in just two years, breaking the readings down into manageable daily portions that can be completed in just 15 minutes or less. Brief devotions based on the text help readers understand and apply that day's Scripture selection to their lives.
