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 120:1-7. Verse 2 KJV, what lies are told about me, or told to me? What lies am I tempted to tell, or even now telling? Why does lying displease God?
Isaiah 32:1-20. Verse 2, spiritually interpreted, what storm, what drought, what deadly heat do God’s people face right now? In what practical way does the man Jesus counteract those?
Revelation 3:7-13. How Jesus deals with me. Offers me a open door, what’s that involve? Crowns me, what’s that involve? Makes me a pillar in God’s temple, what’s that involve?
Luke 18:35-43. Verse 41, related question, when Jesus inquires what I want, is my request small and tentative or big and bold with faith?
