Bible Monday 10/2: King David

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 89:1-52. Verses 34-37, do I believe that God's covenant, his word, his oath, is as solid a reality as the sun and moon? Thus believing, what shall I ask of him in faith today?

I Chronicles 11:1-47. David's greatness, as sketched here and in Psalm 89, didn't endure politically or historically. Why then does it matter to me that Jesus is called son of David?

II Corinthians 7:1-16. Verse 10, when have I experienced godly sorrow? What did I learn? Application for this day?

Luke 8:26-39. What form does demonic activity take nowadays, in my immediate experience or in the wider world?  How can I better equip myself for defense and offense in spiritual warfare?
