Tuesday, February 8 — Psalm 21
Genesis 37; Matthew 13:24–35
Do not fear the reproach of others, and do not be dismayed when they revile you. Isaiah 51:7
Fight the good fight of the faith; take hold of the eternal life, to which you were called and for which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:12
Our heavenly Father, surround us today with a renewed sense of your presence. In those times of distress and discouragement, fill us with your sustaining strength that we may continue the good fight of the faith, knowing that you are Emmanuel—God with us! May you be glorified this day, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
