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. Verse 15 KJV, what is the “sound” of God’s goodness specifically being communicated into my life today? What does my relationship with him NOT sound like, what sounds are silenced.
Ecclesiastes 7:1-29. Verse 10, how have I let “the good old days” distract me from God’s constancy in a fallen world right now? Verse 29, in what ways does the Fall impact me this day—and what is Jesus’ remedy?
Galatians 6:11-18. Verse 13, what are some ways in which Jesus has made me a whole new person? By what marks would this be evident to my family or longtime friends?
Matthew 22:23-33. Verse 29, what area of my life or personality is the least permeated by Scripture? What changes should I look for (or brace for) upon submitting that area more full to the power of God?
