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 18:1-50. Verse 29, what am I facing right now that seems like a wall impossible to get over? What would it actually look like for God to help me surmount that obstacle starting today?
Numbers 4:1-49. Verses 3, 23, 30, why does the priests’ age matter to God? Verses 6-13, why do the blue, red, and purple cloths matter? What details in my life today may matter more to God than I ever dreamed of?
Acts 8:26-40. Verses 29-35, is there someone the Holy Spirit wants me to approach today or very soon, talk to them about the Bible and tell them about Jesus? First step?
Mark 6:1-13. Verses 7-9, related question, in doing more with evangelism, who should I team up with? To travel light as Jesus commanded, what baggage do I need to offload?
