May 6 Psalm 57:1-6 John 4:43-54; 5:1-15 Judges 4; 5

Please read the suggested passages, prayerfully consider them, and the questions below. My comments here may be helpful after those moments. The suggested daily reading is for 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 has been expressed through Jesus.
• What’s the plain simple truth of the verses you read?
• Based on today’s reading, what is one thing God is saying to you?
• What should you do about that truth?

May 6 Psalm 57:1-6 John 4:43-54; 5:1-15 Judges 4; 5
Psalm 57:1-6 David sings his belief that God will not fail him. We can learn from this practice of meditation, singing, praying. David learned from his life experiences. He truly approached life as a personal relationship with God, learning as he went.
John 4:43-54; 5:1-15 Jesus heals a boy who had been near death. While doing this miracle, Jesus asks the people in Galilee if they might believe in Him without the miracles. Jesus heals a man who could not walk and instructs the man to stop sinning. Jesus cared about the man’s natural and spiritual health. The religious leaders were more concerned with this man following their added rules, to the point of legalism. Each of these stories reveals more about Jesus. What is Jesus like?
Judges 4; 5 A prophet named Deborah directs Barak to deliver the Israelites from a ruling Canaanite king. She gives him the promise that God would provide the victory. Barak insists that Deborah go with him. As a result, Deborah becomes the spiritual and natural leader of Israel. Barak and Deborah sang a duet of praise to God for their freedom. Then the Israelites enjoyed 40 years of peace.
