June 18 evening
Faith as a grain of mustard seed.
Barak said unto [Deborah], if thou wilt go with me, then I will go: but if thou wilt not go with me, then I will not go. God subdued on that day Jabin the king of Canaan. – Gideon … feared his father’s household, and the men of the city, that he could not do it by day, … did it by night. And Gideon said unto God, If thou wilt save Israel by mine hand as thou hast said, … let me prove, I pray thee. And God did so.
Thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. – Who hath despised the day of small things?
We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly. – Lord, increase our faith. – I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, cast forth his roots as Lebanon. His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.
