Bible Wednesday 8/7: Hide in Him

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 119:97-120. Verse 114, how do I go about hiding in God? What do I need to hide from today? Is this a solution or just escapism?

Numbers 31:1-54. Israel’s revenge for Midian’s moral subversion (Chapter 25). How would I reply to a teenager asking how anyone could follow such a bloodthirsty God

II Peter 2:1-11. Verse 1 KJV, what heresies most endanger the Christian faith these days? What is my church doing about it? My role?

Mark 9:9-29. Verse 24, making up a balance sheet of my biblical belief and unbelief, what specifically falls in each column? Looking to Jesus for help, what shall I ask him to do? First step today?
