Bible Monday 1/28: Wake Up, Lord

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 44:1-26. Verses 22-24, what is the toughest test God is putting mr through right now? Is it somehow supposed to bless me? What is he asking of me?

Genesis 29:1-35. Verse 20, what was the shortest, sweetest seven years of my life? Why? Where was God?

Hebrews 3:12-19. In what way am I at risk of being hardened by sin?

Matthew 8:23-34. Verse 25 (and compare Psalms 44:23), how do I go about “waking” Jesus when he seems unaware of my urgent need?
