God's Promise
I will not let you be tested beyond what you can endure.

There may be circumstances in our life that rage against this promise, but hold onto the promise that God's grace is sufficient in every trial.

Bible Verse
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. -1 Corinthians 10:13

For thou wilt light my candle. (Psalm 18:28)

It may be that my soul sits in darkness; and if this be of a spiritual kind, no human power can bring me light. Blessed be God! He can enlighten my darkness and at once light my candle. Even though I may be surrounded by a "darkness which might be felt," yet He can break the gloom and immediately make it bright around me.

The mercy is that if He lights the candle none can blow it out, neither will it go out for lack of substance, nor burn out of itself through the lapse of hours. The lights which the Lord kindled in the beginning are shining still. The Lord's lamps may need trimming, but He does not put them out.

Let me, then, like the nightingale sing in the dark. Expectation shall furnish me with music, and hope shall pitch the tune. Soon I shall rejoice in a candle of God's lighting. I am dull and dreary just now. Perhaps it is the weather, or bodily weakness, or the surprise of a sudden trouble; but whatever has made the darkness, it is God alone who will bring the light. My eyes are unto Him alone. I shall soon have the candles of the Lord shining about me; and, further on in His own good time, I shall be where they need no candle, neither light of the sun. Hallelujah!

-C.H. Spurgeon

Romans 12:13 - Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.

What about astrology and the various prophecies of populations like that of the Maya? What about all the various forms of divination?

Astrology is a divinatory art, which teaches that the relative position of the stars, the moon and the planets have an influence on individuals and over the course of things of men. Astrology is a form of divination. Divination is the act of predicting future events, or revealing secret things by means of signs, omens or other manifestations. God forbids the practice of divination: "You are not to practice divination or sorcery." (Leviticus 19:26)
The Bible implicitly tells us that the position of the stars and planets do not influence future events as many think: "This is what the LORD says: Do not learn the way of the nations or be terrified by signs in the heavens, although the nations are terrified by them" (Jeremiah 10:2)
The celestial bodies were also created to be signs for the seasons, for the days and for the years; and they were created to illuminate: "God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them be signs to indicate seasons and days and years, and let them serve as lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth.” It was so. (Genesis 1:14-15)
It is necessary to consider that some prophecies speak of signs in the sky, such as those concerning the time just before the coming of Christ (Luke 21:25), but this has to do with prophecies of the word of God, which is the only source that we must take into consideration. All the various prophecies that have not a biblical foundation, like those of the Maya, are to be considered false.
All forms of divination are forbidden by God. It seems that those who delight in the these things are severely punished by God.
When the Israelites were about to enter the promised land, God warned them not to practice any form of divination: “When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, do not imitate the detestable customs of those nations. No one among you is to make his son or daughter pass through the fire, practice divination, tell fortunes, interpret omens, practice sorcery, cast spells, consult a medium or a familiar spirit, or inquire of the dead." (Deuteronomy 18:9-11)

CHILDREN'S DEVOTIONAL

Read: 1 Corinthians 13: 1-8

God's love is so different from our love. We often don't feel love or express love. God always feels love toward us – for He is love. His love is unconditional, which means, He will always love despite what we do or say. God can never stop loving us. It's in His very nature to love. Even when we say and do wrong things, He still keeps on loving us. We need to build God's love into our lives, so we may love as He does. Let God fill you with His love. Ask Him to help you love people and see them through His eyes. As we continue to walk with Jesus, and choose to respond with love, the more God's love grows in us. So choose today to love God's way.

We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. - 1 John 4: 16 (NLT)

Lord, I pray you'll grow in me
The love that belongs to you,
So I can show the whole wide world
That your love is for them too.

He was the last of the kings of Babylon (Daniel 5:1). He was the son of Nabonidus by Nitocris, who was the daughter of Nebuchadnezzar and the widow of Nergal-sharezer. When still young he made a great feast to a thousand of his lords, and when heated with wine sent for the sacred vessels his "father" (Daniel 5:2), or grandfather, Nebuchadnezzar had carried away from the temple in Jerusalem, and he and his princes drank out of them. In the midst of their mad revelry a hand was seen by the king tracing on the wall the announcement of God's judgment, which that night fell upon him. At the instance of the queen (i.e., his mother) Daniel was brought in, and he interpreted the writing. That night the kingdom of the Chaldeans came to an end, and the king was slain (Daniel 5:30).
