Wednesday, December 9 — Psalm 140:6–13
Amos 8,9; Revelation 10
My eyes are fixed on you, O Sovereign Lord; in you I take refuge—do not give me over to death. Psalm 141:8 (NIV)
Jesus was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and the disciples woke him up and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” Mark 4:38
There is no refuge for us, O Ruler of the Elements, when we seek protection from fear and death by our own devices. Only when we rely on you can we weather the trials of life. In this Advent season we focus on Jesus, whose power calms all our storms. Amen.
