Bible Wednesday 11/16: On Watch

Psalm 109:1-31. How can this prayer of David for God to punish his adversaries be reconciled with Jesus' command to love our enemies (Matthew 5:44)? Toward whom do I entertain such thoughts?

Isaiah 21:1-17. In what way is God setting me as a watchman (verses 6, 12)? Who needs to hear my report? Am I alert, vigilant, and active at my post?

Revelation 1:1-8. How would others notice if I began living up to Jesus’ appointment as one of his “kings and priests unto God” (verse 6, KJV)?

Luke 20:41-47. If Jesus saw his Messiahship foretold in the Psalms (here, Psalm 110 in particular), can I learn to read and pray them in the same depth he did?

These are some of the questions I asked myself in studying this morning's four readings from the St. James Daily Devotional Guide. Click and see what you think.  Where is your self-examination leading today?
