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 78:1-72. Verse 19, what concern or need in my life right now, am I tempted to doubt God's readiness to take care of? Prayer point?
I Chronicles 5:1-26. Related, verses 1-2, what difficult matter confronting me, am I fatalistic about because it appears humanly stacked toward an adverse outcome? Prayer point?
II Corinthians 3:1-18. Verse 14, when has God given me a new, clear reading of something in Scripture to replace an earlier, blinded one? Encouragement for today?
Luke 7:18-35. John the Baptist, who in Luke 3 seemed certain Jesus was the Messiah, now isn't sure. When has spiritual doubt beset me? How did it turn out? Lesson for the present?
