Saturday, September 16 — Psalm 107:10–16
Jeremiah 48:26–49:16; Hebrews 3:1–15
You have taken up my cause, O Lord, you have redeemed my life. Lamentations 3:58
Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you should follow in his steps. When he was abused, he did not return abuse; when he suffered, he did not threaten; but he entrusted himself to the one who judges justly. 1 Peter 2:21,23
God, you are all-powerful, and you love us. You always come to help us. You champion our cause, and when we suffer, you hold us safely in your embrace. May we embody Jesus’ example of entrusting himself to you in the difficult times. Amen.
