Bible Saturday 11/3: Complacency

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 55:1-23. Verse 17, what is my daily pattern of prayer, if any? Action point?

Isaiah 8:1-22. Verse 13, what tends to divide me from God, or to set up in rivalry with him in my way of life? Action point?

James 4:7-17. Verses 13-15, related question, where am I susceptible to complacency, a taking of things for granted, a sense of self-reliance crowding out God-reliance?

Luke 11:14-23. Verses 20-22, how can I be sure Jesus is stronger than Satan? Do I take Satan seriously enough? Is my church clear on this?
