Daily Light on the Daily Path - April 14


April 14 

My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: when I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches. 

How precious ... are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.  — How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! — Thy love is better than wine.

Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. — Thou art fairer than the children of men.

As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love. — His countenance is as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars. His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend.

PSA. 63:5,6.  Psa. 139:17,18. -Psa. 119:103. ‑Song 1:2.  Psa. 73:25. ‑Psa. 45:2. Song 2:3,4. ‑Song 5:15,16.


Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation.

I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners.

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. — Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the Lord our God. — I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases. — He restoreth my soul. — O Lord, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.

Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe.

I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.

PSA. 51:12.  Isa. 57:18. Isa. 1:18. ‑Jer. 3:22. ‑Psa. 85:8. Psa. 103:2,3. ‑Psa. 23:3. ‑Isa. 12:1. Psa. 119:117. Isa. 43:25.
