Day 16: Lord, I love Your Word, especially when I read it and remember that the suffering of Jesus taught Him obedience.

Day 28: Abba, when the enemy would trick me into thinking that I am not Your choice possession, firmly plant in my heart Your words from scripture that You will never leave me nor forsake me, that You love me with an everlasting love.
