The Upward Call

These are among the most beloved chapters in the Bible. Verse upon verse needs to be present before your eyes throughout this day; you will find it hard to select your favorite one.

Yesterday you learned from David how to let the Lord lift you from the pit of darkness and despair. Today Paul is your leader. Remember, Paul penned these words from the pits of a Roman prison. Everything goes out from the dark, downward space as he responds to the “upward call” of Christ upon his life.

Though Paul likely received mere morsels of stale bread, Paul offers you a banquet of God’s Word, upon which he also feasts. Nothing can restrain his joy.

Abanquet of delicious food from the Lord is spread before you today. Take, eat, and pass the nourishment on to others.
