Bible Thursday 11/16: Listen

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 85:1-13. Verse 8, how can I hear from God today, tune him in and tune out all competing messages?  What other voices, external and internal, must I silence to hear him speak peace?

II Chronicles 27:1-9. Verse 6 KJV, realistically how can I use the rest of my life so posterity would say "he became mighty"? What godly ways must I pursue, starting now, to get there?

Revelation 1:9-20. Verse 20, have I as much of a heart for the churches, all of them, as the Apostle John did? What's the greatest need of churches that I can pray for today?

Luke 17:20-37.  Verses 31-32, referring to the disobedience of Lot's wife in Genesis 19, what's the practical lesson here for me as a Christian? What does this require of me today?
