Psalm 20:1-9. "In the name of our God will we set up our banners" (verse 5, KJV). Do others see that the flag of Christ flies above all others in my life, including the American flag? In a winsome way, not off-putting?
Isaiah 38:1-22. As Hezekiah here composes a song or psalm to God about his healing (verses 9-20), could I be doing more to distill and record the spiritual turning points in my own life?
Revelation 9:13-21. Hard to frame questions about this horrific scene. (A) Why would God direct or allow such a death-orgy? Because the wages of sin is death. (B) Confronting what is described here, and its counterparts in our world today, who could possibly believe in secular or religious utopianism?
Luke 22:54-62. What did Peter read in Jesus' gaze after the third denial (verse 61)? What have I done in my life -- or am I doing even now -- that may deserve such a gaze from the Lord?
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?
