Bible Saturday 9/10: Absolute Authority

Psalm 55:1-23. What burden that I am trying to shoulder on my own does the Lord invite me to entrust with him today (verse 22, see also Mt. 11:28-30)?

Job 17:1-16. What friend of mine sits even now in discouragement and despair, whom I can console with God's vindication of suffering Job (and then, supremely, of Jesus)?

Ephesians 4:7-16. Where am I specially in need of Christ's truth and love to resist the gusty winds of lies and deceit (verses 14-15)?

Luke 7:1-10. Hour by hour today, how can I give over my anxiety and concern for loved ones to the absolute authority of our Lord Jesus?

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