Bible Monday 9/17: He Hears

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 65:1-13. Verse 2 KJV, how certain am I that God hears my prayers? What proof do I have? How can I pray as Jesus taught us to do, more today than yesterday?

Job 24:1-25. Verse 1, are there things in God’s timing that are hard for me to understand or accept right now? What experiences remind me that he knows better than I do?

II Corinthians 7:1-16. When have I experienced godly sorrow as Paul describes here? What did I learn? Application for today?

Mark 15:21-32. Thinking about Simon of Cyrene, what’s the hardest thing I ever had to do for Jesus? How did I feel about it at the time? How did it bless me? Application?
