Wednesday, February 21 — Psalm 28
Genesis 49; Matthew 17:14–27

The Lord will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard. Isaiah 52:12

Therefore we must pay greater attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it. Hebrews 2:1

Great Protector, with you by our side we shall have nothing to fear. Because of this, we can more freely focus on keeping your words close to our hearts. Weigh upon our minds what you desire us to hear. Amen.
