Lord, for the many people who are suffering today, I humbly request You meet them where they are, that You will shine Your truth into whatever darkness they may be struggling with. Lord, thank You that we can rest in You and Your truth. For what can man do to those whose soul is safe with You? I praise You, Lord Jesus! Amen.

Dear Lord Jesus, Thank You for Your Word! I love this story. You prepared Bezalel before hand to do the work You had for him.

Lord, You know the needs of each of us. You understand what You have called each one to. Your way is perfect. Your truth is enough. Please help me to rest in the knowledge that You will and You have supplied so many needs. Your Word and Your Holy Spirit will continue to guide and direct. Thank You for all You are doing.

For You are their comfort and strength, a very present help in times of trouble. What can man do to those whose soul is safe with You? Lord, thank You for Your mercy. Thank You for Your love.
