ESV — Daily Light on the Daily Path: Day 90
90
Morning
Gen. 24:63; Ps. 19:14; Ps. 8:3, 4; Ps. 111:2; Ps. 1:1, 2; Josh. 1:8; Ps. 63:5, 6

And Isaac went out to meditate in the field toward evening.

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?—Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them.

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.—“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night.”—My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips, when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night.

Evening
Ps. 13:1; Jas. 1:17; Isa. 49:14, 15; Isa. 44:21, 22; John 11:5, 6; Matt. 15:22, 23; 1 Pet. 1:7

How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.—But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me; my Lord has forgotten me.” “Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you.”

O Israel, you will not be forgotten by me. I have blotted out your transgressions like a cloud and your sins like mist.

Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So, when he heard that Lazarus was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was.—A… woman… was crying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David…” But he did not answer her a word.

The tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes.

63 And Isaac went out ito meditate in the field toward evening. And he lifted up his eyes and saw, and behold, there were camels coming.


14  Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
