Bible Tuesday 7/31: Hesitation

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 68:1-35. Verses 5 and 6, what more could my church be doing for families, singles, women or children in difficulty? What more could I be doing?

I Kings 18:1-46. Verses 21 and 39, in what way do I tend to hesitate between God and not-God? What proofs have I experienced, if less dramatic than this one, that God is the I AM?

Acts 26:24-32. Verses 24 and 28, two men of power react oppositely to Paul's preaching of Christ -- why? Back to previous question, does something in me say "almost" like Agrippa?

Mark 8:11-12. Again as just seen in Kings & Acts, proud mortals doubt God. When have I asked him for more certainty? Did it bring a deep sigh from Jesus as seen here?
