Bible Monday 10/1: God Answers Job

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 89:1-52. Verses 20, 35, 49, what is there in David’s experience with God that I can draw strength from today? What in David’s example should be a warning to me?

Job 38:1-41. When have I felt God bringing me to my knees with the absoluteness of his sovereignty and the puniness of my pride, as he does here with Job? Application for today?

I John 2:28 - 3:9. Verse 8, what works of the devil, threatened or now occurring, do I need the Son of God to destroy in me, my family, my friends, my church, our country, our world?

Luke 5:33-39. Verse 35, what fasting does Jesus expect of me? Verse 39, what putting off of old ways does he expect of me? Action point?
