From today’s Old Testament reading, from Zephaniah: ‘I will be to her a wall of fire round about, says the Lord, and I will be the glory within her’. These words are spoken about Jerusalem, but they can also be read as referring to the individual soul, another ‘Jerusalem’ where the Lord dwells. He dwells in the innermost part of the soul, and there we can meet Him in all seasons – He can never be taken from us.

May we trust Him, and look to Him for all our needs, and may He bless us this day.
