Jonathan Bagster's Daily Light on the Daily Path (Daily)


The LORD delighteth in thee.

Thus saith the LORD that created thee, . . . Fear not: for I
have redeemed thee, I have called [thee] by thy name; thou [art]
mine.--Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not
have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget,
yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the
palms of [my] hands; thy walls [are] continually before me.

The steps of a [good] man are ordered by the LORD: and he
delighteth in his way.--My delights [were] with the sons of men.
--The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that
hope in his mercy.--They shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts,
in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as
a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

You, that were sometime alienated and enemies in [your] mind
by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled in the body of his
flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and
unreproveable in his sight.

Isa 62:4 43:1 49:15,16 Ps 37:23 Pr 8:31 Ps 147:11 Mal 3:17
Col 1:21,22


The sorrow of the world worketh death.

When Ahithophel saw that his counsel was not followed, he
saddled [his] ass, and arose, and gat him home to his house, to
his city, and put his household in order, and hanged himself,
and died.--A wounded spirit who can bear?

[Is there] no balm in Gilead; [is there] no physician there?
why then is not the health of the daughter of my people
recovered?--The LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings
unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
. . . to comfort all that mourn; to appoint unto them that mourn
in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for
mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.--
Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I
will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for
I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your
souls. For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.

Philip . . . preached unto him Jesus.--He healeth the broken
in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
