Psalm 91 (CSB)

Psalm 91


The one who lives under the protection of the Most High 

dwells in the shadow of the Almighty. 

I will say concerning the Lord, who is my refuge and my fortress, 

my God in whom I trust: 

He himself will rescue you from the bird trap, 

from the destructive plague. 

He will cover you with his feathers; 

you will take refuge under his wings. 

His faithfulness will be a protective shield. 

You will not fear the terror of the night, 

the arrow that flies by day, 

the plague that stalks in darkness, 

or the pestilence that ravages at noon. 

Though a thousand fall at your side 

and ten thousand at your right hand, 

the pestilence will not reach you. 

You will only see it with your eyes 

and witness the punishment of the wicked. 

Because you have made the Lord—my refuge, 

the Most High—your dwelling place, 

10 no harm will come to you; 

no plague will come near your tent. 

11 For he will give his angels orders concerning you, 

to protect you in all your ways. 

12 They will support you with their hands 

so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. 

13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra; 

you will trample the young lion and the serpent. 

14 Because he has his heart set on me, 

I will deliver him; 

I will protect him because he knows my name. 

15 When he calls out to me, I will answer him; 

I will be with him in trouble. 

I will rescue him and give him honor. 

16 I will satisfy him with a long life 

and show him my salvation.

Proverbs 17:1–3 (CSB)

Better a dry crust with peace 

than a house full of feasting with strife. 

A prudent servant will rule over a disgraceful son 

and share an inheritance among brothers. 

A crucible for silver, and a smelter for gold, 

and the Lord is the tester of hearts.

John 3:22–36 (CSB)


22 After this, Jesus and his disciples went to the Judean countryside, where he spent time with them and baptized. 

23 John also was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was plenty of water there. People were coming and being baptized, 24 since John had not yet been thrown into prison. 

25 Then a dispute arose between John’s disciples and a Jew about purification. 26 So they came to John and told him, “Rabbi, the one you testified about, and who was with you across the Jordan, is baptizing—and everyone is going to him.” 

27 John responded, “No one can receive anything unless it has been given to him from heaven. 28 You yourselves can testify that I said, ‘I am not the Messiah, but I’ve been sent ahead of him.’ 29 He who has the bride is the groom. But the groom’s friend, who stands by and listens for him, rejoices greatly at the groom’s voice. So this joy of mine is complete. 30 He must increase, but I must decrease.” 


31 The one who comes from above is above all. The one who is from the earth is earthly and speaks in earthly terms. The one who comes from heaven is above all. 32 He testifies to what he has seen and heard, and yet no one accepts his testimony33 The one who has accepted his testimony has affirmed that God is true. 34 For the one whom God sent speaks God’s words, since he gives the Spirit without measure. 35 The Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hands. 36 The one who believes in the Son has eternal life, but the one who rejects the Son will not see life; instead, the wrath of God remains on him.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His faithful love endures forever. A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father, but one who consorts with prostitutes destroys his wealth. Since we have heard that some without our authorization went out from us and troubled you with their words and unsettled your hearts, we have unanimously decided to select men and send them to you along with our dearly loved Barnabas and Paul, who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The churches were strengthened in the faith and grew daily in numbers.

The LORD God Created (January 5, 2021)

When God began to create the heavens and the earth—the earth was without shape or form, it was dark over the deep sea, and God’s wind swept over the waters—God said, “Let there be light.” And so light appeared. God saw how good the light was. God separated the light from the darkness. God named the light Day and the darkness Night.

His Blood Cries Out (January 6, 2020)

What did you do? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground. You are now cursed from the ground that opened its mouth to take your brother’s blood from your hand. When you farm the fertile land, it will no longer grow anything for you, and you will become a roving nomad on the earth. I get no pleasure from the blood. Though you offer many prayers, I will not listen, for your hands are covered with the blood of innocent victims.
