Let your loins be girded
about, and your lights burning; Luke 1
Then shall we know,
if we follow on to
know the LORD: his
going forth is prepared
as the morning; and he
shall come unto us as
the rain, as the latter
and former rain unto
the earth. Hosea 6:3

The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart:
the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet,
and a light unto my path.
New Years Message:
from Focus On The Bible
by Pastor George Deeley
Let your conversation be without covetousness;
and be content with such things as ye have:
for he hath said, I will never leave thee,
nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say,
The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear
what man shall do unto me.

1. How firm a foundation, ye Saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in his excellent word!
What more can he say than to you he hath said,
Who unto the Savior, who unto the Savior,
Who unto the Savior for refuge have fled?
2. In ev’ry condition—in sickness, in health,
In poverty’s vale or abounding in wealth,
At home or abroad, on the land or the sea—
As thy days may demand, as thy days may demand,
As thy days may demand, so thy succor shall be.
3. Fear not, I am with thee; oh, be not dismayed,
For I am thy God and will still give thee aid.
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by my righteous, upheld by my righteous,
Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.
4. When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
The rivers of sorrow shall not thee o’erflow,
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
And sanctify to thee, and sanctify to thee,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.
5. When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply.
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume, thy dross to consume,
Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine.
6. E’en down to old age, all my people shall prove
My sov’reign, eternal, unchangeable love;
And then, when gray hair shall their temples adorn,
Like lambs shall they still, like lambs shall they still,
Like lambs shall they still in my bosom be borne.
7. The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose
I will not, I cannot, desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no never, I’ll never, no never,
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake!

¶ Seek ye the LORD while he may be found,
call ye upon him while he is near: Let the
wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous
man his thoughts: and let him return unto
the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him;
and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way
which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
For every one that asketh receiveth;
and he that seeketh findeth; and to
him that knocketh it shall be opened.

appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who hath abolished death, and hath
brought life and immortality to light
through the gospel. 2Timothy 1:10
... for I know whom I have believed,
and am persuaded that he is able
to keep that which I have committed
unto him against that day.

of me, in faith and love
which is in Christ Jesus.

Trust in the LORD
with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own
understanding. In all
thy ways acknowledge
him, and he shall direct
