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

Morning:

Who can say, I have made my heart clean?

The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to
see if there were any that did understand, [and] seek God. They
are all gone aside, they are [all] together become filthy:
[there is] none that doeth good, no, not one.--Then they that
are in the flesh cannot please God.

To will is present with me; but [how] to perform that which
is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the
evil which I would not, that I do.--We are all as an unclean
[thing], and all our righteousnesses [are] as filthy rags; and
we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind,
have taken us away.

The scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise
by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
--That God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, not
imputing their trespasses to them.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the
truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and
just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all
unrighteousness.

1Jo 1:8,9


Evening:

The floods lift their waves.

The LORD on high [is] mightier than the noise of many waters,
[yea, than] the mighty waves of the sea.--O LORD God of hosts,
who [is] a strong LORD like thee? or to thy faithfulness around
thee? Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when its waves arise,
thou stillest them.

Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my
presence, who have placed the sand [for] the bound of the sea by
a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it?

When thou passest through the waters, I [will be] with thee;
and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee.

Peter . . . walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he
saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink,
he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched
forth [his] hand, and caught him, and said to him, O thou of
little faith, why didst thou doubt?

When I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
