Psalms 44:1-26. Verse 3, for which of my achievements, circumstances, and possessions do I tend give myself too much credit and not enough to God? Application for today?
Proverbs 17:1-28. Verse 17, when has a friend or sibling met a great need for me? How was God involved?
Romans 15:1-6. What am I impatient and anxious about today, for which by God’s Word (verse 4) and God’s Son (verse 5) I can gain patience, comfort, and hope to press on?
Matthew 16:13-20. Uncertain times for Jesus’ church. Right now, how does it seem the rock is sand, the keys are lost, and hell is gaining? What is MY church doing about it? What’s my role?
