ESV — Daily Light on the Daily Path: Day 338
338
Morning
Job 5:8; Genesis 18:14; Psalm 37:5; Philippians 4:6; 1 Peter 5:7; Isaiah 37:14; Isaiah 37:15; Isaiah 65:24; James 5:16; Psalm 116:1; Psalm 116:2

“I would seek God, and to God would I commit my cause.”

“Is anything too hard for the Lord?”—Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.—Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.—Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it; and Hezekiah went up to the house of the Lord, and spread it before the Lord. And Hezekiah prayed to the Lord.

“Before they call I will answer; while they are yet speaking I will hear.”—The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.

Evening
Hebrews 10:22; Exodus 30:18-21; 1 Corinthians 6:19; 1 Corinthians 3:17; Job 19:26; Job 19:27; Revelation 21:27; Habakkuk 1:13; Romans 12:1

Our bodies washed with pure water.

“You shall… make a basin of bronze…. You shall put it between the tent of meeting and the altar, and you shall put water in it, with which Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet. When they go into the tent of meeting,… they shall wash with water, so that they may not die. They shall wash their hands and their feet, so that they may not die.”—Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you.—If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and you are that temple.

“In my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another.”—But nothing unclean will ever enter it.—You who are of purer eyes than to see evil and cannot look at wrong.—I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.

“As for me, I would seek God,

and to God would I commit my cause,


14 aIs anything too hard1 for the Lord? bAt the appointed time I will return to you, about this time next year, and Sarah shall have a son.”

It shall dbe a statute forever to them, even to him and to his offspring throughout their generations.”

and cremain silent when the wicked swallows up

the man more righteous than he?
