September 11 Bible reading

10 09 2019

September 11  Psalm 106:40-48  2 Corinthians 12:1-10  Isaiah 27; 28

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?

September 11  Psalm 106:40-48  2 Corinthians 12:1-10  Isaiah 27; 28

Psalm 106:40-48

The spiritual idolatry of the Israelites brought an angry response from God and consequences. When they cried out to God, He remembered His covenant agreement with them and, by His unfailing love, He pulled back the punishment. Our God is a God of mercy and justice. It’s a personal relationship.

2 Corinthians 12:1-10

Paul refers to an indescribable vision that he had, of heaven. Hearing from God revelation of truth was not something Paul would brag about. Instead, He pointed to the power of God seen in the fact that anything good could come despite his human weakness. By God’s Word, Paul learned to see spiritual strength in natural weakness. He was happy to see difficulty in this life as leading him to strength. That’s eternal perspective.

Isaiah 27; 28

Isaiah describes an apocalyptic scene of God’s final judgment and a restoration of His people in to worship. Drunkenness obscures their ability to hear from God. They are called to listen and to watch for the coming Messiah, a “precious cornerstone”. If they will believe, they will not need to be shaken. God’s Son would bring a peace that is supernatural.
