Jonathan Bagster's Daily Light on the Daily Path (Daily)


I am cast out of thy sight;
yet I will look again toward thy holy temple.

Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath
forgotten me. 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.

I forgat prosperity. And I said, My strength and my hope is
perished from the LORD.--Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord?
arise, cast [us] not off for ever.--Why sayest thou, O Jacob,
and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my
judgment is passed over from my God?--In a little wrath I hid my
face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will
I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer.

Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou
disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him,
[who is] the health of my countenance, and my God.--[We are]
troubled on every side, yet not distressed; [we are] perplexed,
but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but
not destroyed.

Jon 2:4 Isa 49:14,15 La 3:17,18 Ps 44:23 Isa 40:27 54:8
Ps 43:5 2Co 4:8,9


[When] the poor and needy seek water,
and [there is] none, [and] their tongue faileth for thirst,
I the LORD will hear them.

[There be] many that say, Who will shew us [any] good?--What
hath man of all his labour, and of the vexation of his heart,
wherein he hath laboured under the sun? For all his days [are]
sorrows, and his travail grief; yea, his heart taketh not rest
in the night.--All [is] vanity and vexation of spirit.--They
have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, [and] hewed them
out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.

Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.--I will
pour water upon him that is thirsty.--Blessed [are] they which
do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be

O God, thou [art] my God; early will I seek thee: my soul
thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and
thirsty land, where no water is.

Isa 41:17 Ps 4:6 Ec 2:22,23,17 Jer 2:13 Joh 6:37 Isa 44:3
Mt 5:6 Ps 63:1
