Bible Wednesday 10/18: He's Able

Studying this morning's four readings from the St. James Daily Devotional Guide (click to subscribe), I examined myself with these questions. Where is your self-examination leading today?

Psalm 119:1-24. Verse 19, as a Christian in today's world, what's my keenest sense of not fitting in? How does God sustain me through that? How does he use it?

I Chronicles 27:1-34. Verses 23-24, why did the census displease God? What similar temptation may ensnare me or my church? What's the antidote?

Ephesians 3:14 - 4:6. Verse 20, where might I be selling God short, expecting too little of him when I pray about something in my life right now? What am I excluding from possibility?

Luke 11:29-36. What did Jesus bring from God that exceeded Solomon's wisdom and Jonah's preaching? How can I live into that better today than yesterday? How can I pass it along?
