Bible Saturday 12/30: He Hears

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 20:1-9. Verse 1 KJV, what specific "day of trouble" can I anticipate in the year ahead? Can I start trusting even today, ahead of any such trouble, that God will hear and answer my prayers?

Deuteronomy 2:1-37. Verse 14, when has God made me wait a long time while my preparation for his purpose was being accomplished? What did I learn? Present application?

Revelation 22:1-11. Verse 2, toward the healing of the nations here and now, what gifts from God's tree of life can Christians pray for and apply?

John 1:29-34. Verse 33, John is in active relationship, "on a first name basis," with all three Persons of the Trinity. Am I? How is today different for me as a result?
