Australia Ministry Trip (Sept 26-November 10, 2017)

Australia Ministry Trip (Sept 26-November 10, 2017)
From September 26 to November 10, 2017, my husband, daughter and I will be on a ministry trip in Australia and New Zealand. The places we will be visiting are shown on the map above - along with the dates in which we'll be in these places (and what we'll be doing while there). Please keep this ministry trip and all of us in your prayers! Blogs will appear daily throughout this time, as I have written them and scheduled them in advance. I welcome your comments - and enjoy them! Just know I will not have Internet access for much of this time. So, I will look forward to reading your responses upon my return. Thank you for your understanding! And please keep reading to complete the "Reading the Bible in a Year" challenge and blessing! I am very grateful to Claire for her faithful blog comments (please everyone - join her in sharing each day as a discussion blesses everyone so much more!) And I am thankful that Claire has graciously agreed to add a bit more into her daily comments during my time of absence. Please direct special comments or questions which require immediate responses to her (on this blog). Blessings as you continue your journey through God's Word this year!

Daily Bible Reading - January 4, 2017

Today's Reading:

Luke 7:1-17

Genesis 8-10

Psalm 4

Listen to Bible





Thoughts and Commentary on today's reading:

Psalm 4 is the most powerful intercessory prayer in the Bible. Since this incredible prayer formula is in today's reading selection, I absolutely must address it and point out the powerful elements it contains. There is so much in this vital chapter that I will share it in parts, which I have already presented in the following blogs:

Part 1: Introduction: How God Introduced Me to the Psalm 4 Prayer

Part 2: Step 1 - What it Means to Stand in Awe 

Part 3: Step 2 - What it Means to Sin Not

Part 4: Steps 3-4 - How to Commune with God and Be Still

Part 5: Step 5 - How to Offer the Sacrifices of Righteousness on Another's Behalf

Be sure to add a COMMENT on this blog, sharing with us anything you found meaningful in your reading of today's Scripture passages. We will all love to hear from you (please keep the Comment relevant to today's reading - Thx!)
