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 107:1-43. Verse 9 KJV, what does my soul long for or hunger for? For God to satisfy that in me today, what specific form do I pray it would take?
II Chronicles 35:1-27. Verses 20-24, Josiah dies in a battle God warned him to avoid. How can I stay attuned to divine guidance from unlikely sources, as here from a pagan Egyptian? Prayer point?
Revelation 4:1-11. Does this imagery help me know God better? If yes, how is it relevant to me here and now? If not, why not? Does that matter? What shall I do about it, if anything?
Luke 18:35-43. Verse 39, why does the world want to silence the name of Jesus, more than that of God or Spirit? How does this operate on me? Action point for today?
