September 7 Bible reading

7 09 2018

Each day of the year I’ll post verses to read, with the purpose of reading through the whole Bible within a year.

Reading the Bible is helpful in taking next steps to follow Jesus. It may not be easy and yet it can be rewarding. Digging into Scripture alongside people you know is a life-giving way to pursue answers together. We discover the love that God has for us, expressed through Jesus.

Please read the verses below, prayerfully consider them, and then my comments may be helpful after those moments.

September 7  Psalm 106:1-15  2 Corinthians 9:6-15  Isaiah 14; 15; 16

Based on today’s reading, what is one thing God is saying to you?

Today let us thank God for the way that He has faithfully loved us. We find strength and joy when we remember the specifics of how God has provided for us. Giving thanks to God for being faithful to us, even after we failed Him, brings us peace, perspective, and fulfillment.

When we choose to give money to those in need, out of a cheerful heart, God is pleased. God is our provider. We cannot give more than He has already given to us. Let us give out of a thankful heart.

Through the prophet Isaiah, God predicts a restoration that the Israelites could hope for upon their return to Him. We see that God does not enjoy bringing punishment on the Moabites. God is yearning for restoration. God loves people who do not yet love Him.
