the daughter and the joy
"..and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty" (2 Cor 6:18)

"Though you have not seen him, you love him. And even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy."
(1 Peter 1:8)

Day 18

Fri 13/7

M. Fellowship over lunch. Grateful to know her although it’s only been 6 months, we could share to each other openly. I thank God for every fellowship, every chance to share about Him and to witness His works. By His grace alone that He sustains my faith until today. It’s been adventurous!

CG takeaway. Dear Moses, somehow I know how you felt when you said “If the Israelites will not listen to me, why would Pharaoh listen to me, since I speak with faltering lips?”. But yes, He trusts me, even though I don’t believe I can do it.

Devo. 1 Samuel 12:19-24
The people all said to Samuel, “Pray to the Lord your God for your servants so that we will not die, for we have added to all our other sins the evil of asking for a king.”

“Do not be afraid,” Samuel replied. “You have done all this evil;yet do not turn away from the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart. Do not turn away after useless idols. They can do you no good, nor can they rescue you, because they are useless. For the sake of his great name the Lord will not reject his people, because the Lord was pleased to make you his own. As for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by failing to pray for you. And I will teach you the way that is good and right. But be sure to fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you.
