Todays reading is from Philippians 4:4-5 (NIV)
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
Rejoice! Rest in the assurance that God is near today. Just because God the Father and God the Son are seated in the heavenly realm does not mean that God is far from you. He has made His home with you and come to be with you in the person of the Holy Spirit. His grasp on you is firm…believe it and rejoice!
