Devotional: December 5th


It is good for me that I have been afflicted;

that I might learn thy statutes.

Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things

which he suffered. We suffer with him, that we may be also

glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this

present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory

which shall be revealed in us.

He knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I

shall come forth as gold. My foot hath held his steps, his way

have I kept, and not declined.

Thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led

thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and

to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou

wouldest keep his commandments, or no. Thou shalt also consider

in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the LORD

thy God chasteneth thee. Therefore thou shalt keep the

commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to

fear him.

Psalms 119:71 Hebrews 5:8 Romans 8:17-18 Job 23:10-11 Deuteronomy 8:2 Deuteronomy 8:5-6


By strength shall no man prevail.

Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a

sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee

in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of

Israel, whom thou hast defied. And David put his hand in his

bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the

Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his

forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth. So David

prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone.

There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty

man is not delivered by much strength. . . . Behold, the eye of

the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in

his mercy. Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou

reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and

in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto


I . . . glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may

rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in

reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for

Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

1 Samuel 2:9 1 Samuel 17:45 1 Samuel 17:49-50 Psalms 33:16 Psalms 33:18 1 Chronicles 29:12 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
