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 93:1-5. What oceanic forces and troubles confront me right now (verse 4)? In what specific way do I need God to buoy me up and shelter me?
Proverbs 28:1-28. What areas of disobedience in my life right now may cause my prayer to sound hollow in God's ear (verse 9)?
Ecclesiastes 2:1-11. What are the godly influences of music, and its ungodly influences, upon me as a Christian (verse 8)? What evidence have we that music is one of the languages of heaven?
Matthew 18:1-5. How can I be more spiritually childlike throughout this day?
