Psalms 120, 121, 122, and 123. How can I deepen the habit of constantly lifting my mental gaze toward God's high throne, even to God's face, on these busy days (verses 121:1 and 123:1, 2)?
Isaiah 27:1-13. How has modern materialism dulled me to the reality of spiritual conflict between the serpent or dragon of active evil and the strong sword of God (verse 1)?
Revelation 3:1-6. Relating verses 2-3 here to both readings above, what are the qualities and practices of that watchfulness Jesus is asking of me?
Luke 21:34-38. Yet another command for us to be watchful. With what specific distractions might my "heart be overcharged" (verse 34), leading to a lapse in vigilance?
