October 5


Call upon Me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me. 

Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God. § Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will prepare their heart; You will cause Your ear to hear. § For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.

Jacob said to his household … “Let us arise and go up to Bethel; and I will make an altar there to God, who answered me in the day of my distress and has been with me in the way which I have gone.” § Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.

I love the Lord, because He has heard my voice and my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live. The pains of death surrounded me, and the pangs of Sheol laid hold of me; I found trouble and sorrow. Then I called upon the name of the Lord.

Ps. 50:15; 42:11; 10:17; 86:5; Gen. 35:2–3; Ps. 103:2; 116:1–4


Yet a little while, and He who is coming
will come and will not tarry. 

Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. § You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, long- suffering and abundant in mercy and truth. § Oh, that You would rend the heavens! That You would come down! … For since the beginning of the world men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen any God besides You, who acts for the one who waits for Him.

Heb. 10:37; Hab. 2:2–3; 2 Peter 3:8–9; Ps. 86:15; Isa. 64:1, 4
