Reading God’s Word: Joshua 11-12; Psalm 126

Memorizing God’s Word: Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

Meditating on God’s Word: Psalm 126:5 (LSB)Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy.

Praying God’s Word: “Father, in our meditation today we are reminded that You are a God of restoration. All of us have faced, or will face, those times in our lives when in a sense we go out with sorrow and sow with tears. But that is not the end of the matter. You are a God who takes our tears and our pain and turns that into a time of rejoicing. May we be reminded of that in our “dark night of the soul” days as you have promised that a new dawn is coming, and we will be restored. Amen.”
