Bible Tuesday 4/4: Not by Might

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 120:1-7.  When has God rescued me from lies and deceit, either by others or by myself (verse 2)?

Zechariah 4:1-14. In what way am I relying right now on human might and power, when the Holy Spirit is available as a far better reliance (verse 6)?

Galatians 6:1-10. Whose burden can I help bear today, and so fulfill the law of Christ (verse 2)?

Matthew 22:41-46. In this daily study, how can I be more alive to Jesus' presence throughout the Old Testament, as he reminds us here by citing Psalm 110?
