Bible Friday 2/15: Bind the Strong Man

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 88:1-18. Verses 13-15, when has it seemed God was remote, ignoring my prayers, hiding his face? How did it turn out?

Genesis 46:1-34. Verses 3 and 4, when has God strengthened me to face the unknown, to walk by faith and not by sight? Present application?

Romans 3:9-20. Verse 19 KJV, all the world guilty before God. How can this be true of me, my family, my friends, my church? If it’s not true, then what? If it’s true, then what?

Matthew 12:22-30. How real is Satan to me? What are some ways I may have to choose between him and Jesus this very day?
