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?
Psalms 119:25-48. Verse 32, in what area of my life have I been going at a walk or standing still, but God wants me to run, pick up the pace? Where am I below my spiritual potential?
Nehemiah 11:1-36. Verse 1, casting lots for who is to live in Jerusalem. When have I seen God use an apparently random circumstance to fulfill his purpose? Application for today?
Galatians 6:11-18. Verse 17, echoes Acts 4:13 where Peter and John are ID’d as having “been with Jesus.” By what signs or marks could someone who just met me see that I’m with Jesus?
Luke 9:43-50. In what way am I too concerned with being great and not concerned enough with being childlike?
