Bible Friday 3/9: Suit Up

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 92:1-15. Verse 2, how can I strengthen my morning and evening rhythm of prayer, praise, listening to God and seeking his face? Action point?

Jeremiah 37:1-21. Verse 17, even with his life at stake, Jeremiah refuses to tell the king what he wants to hear. How does this temptation get at me and other Christians today?

Romans 13:8-14. Verses 12 and 14 KJV, in preparing for my day, what's involved in putting on the armor of light, putting on Jesus? It means doing precisely what?

Matthew 17:14-23. Not having moved any mountains lately, my faith must be, alas, tinier than a mustard seed. How can I grow it? Is Jesus disappointed in me? What should I be fasting from?
