Bible Saturday 2/2: Seismic

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 43:1-5. Verses 3 and 4, God’s hill, his tabernacle, his altar. How can I live into each of these images today?

Genesis 33:1-20. Verse 10, when has God helped me reconcile with someone? Present application?

Haggai 2:1-9. Verse 7, God shaking the nations and fulfilling their desire. How is he doing both in world events right now? Role of my church? My role?

Luke 2:22-40. Verse 34, applying to my own encounter with Jesus. What in me needs to fall? What in me needs to rise?
