Psalm 119:114 
You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope. (NLT)

You’re my place of quiet retreat;
I wait for your Word to renew me.
(The Message)

There is a place of quiet rest,
Near to the heart of God;
A place where sin cannot molest,
Near to the heart of God.

O Jesus, blest Redeemer,
Sent from the heart of God;
Hold us, who wait before Thee,
Near to the heart of God.

(The Broadman Hymnal, Broadman Press: Nashville Tennessee, 1940)

Psalm 23:3 says, “He restores my soul” (English Standard Version); “He renews my life” (Christian Standard Bible); “he refreshes my soul” (New International Version); “He renews my strength” (New Living Translation).

Soul restoration is God’s work. He is our refuge. He is our protector and defender. He is the source of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17). 

Those who know God in an ever-deeper abiding relationship discover the source of hope in God’s words of truth and life. 

Spaced repetition embeds these truths, this life, into our hearts and minds. Daily reading and pondering nourishes us. Selected verses committed to memory accompany us wherever we go and strengthen us in whatever we face. 

Hope is far more enduring than a momentary wish. It is a settled disposition, a confident expectation of God’s promises and purpose.

I will commit God’s words of truth and life to memory and lean on them for hope whenever I need it.

Our Father, thank you that you are our refuge and shield. Thank you that you are our source of hope. Protect us, defend us, hide us, and give us confidence in you today and every day. Amen.

Psalm 101:2 ”I will pay attention to the way of integrity.
When will you come to me?
I will live with a heart of integrity in my house.“

Daily D – Psalm 100:3

Psalm 100:3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—
his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Daily D – 1 Kings 19:3-9

1 Kings 19:3-9 Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, “I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.

Suddenly, an angel touched him. The angel told him, “Get up and eat.” Then he looked, and there at his head was a loaf of bread baked over hot stones, and a jug of water. So he ate and drank and lay down again. Then the angel of the Lord returned for a second time and touched him. He said, “Get up and eat, or the journey will be too much for you.” So he got up, ate, and drank. Then on the strength from that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. He entered a cave there and spent the night. Suddenly, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Daily D – 1 Kings 14:12-13

1 Kings 14:12, 13 “As for you, get up and go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the boy will die. All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He alone out of Jeroboam’s house will be given a proper burial because out of the house of Jeroboam something favorable to the Lord God of Israel was found in him.“

Daily D – 1 Kings 12:6-7

1 Kings 12:6, 7 Then King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon when he was alive, asking, “How do you advise me to respond to this people?” They replied, “Today if you will be a servant to this people and serve them, and if you respond to them by speaking kind words to them, they will be your servants forever.”
