August 2  Psalm 90:1-10  Romans 15:14-33  1 Chronicles 12:23-40; 13; 14

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 the 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?

August 2  Psalm 90:1-10  Romans 15:14-33  1 Chronicles 12:23-40; 13; 14

Psalm 90:1-10

For generations, people have sung Psalm 90 a prayer from Moses. This song recognizes God as the Creator. The One True Living God is above and beyond things that we are unable to control. This God is available for a personal relationship. This God is aware of our secret sin. This God is our Creator and available Redeemer. We can now pray direct informed prayers, such as “God of Creation, I confess my sin to You and look to You as my Redeemer.” Our reasonable response is to live out of wholehearted devotion to God. We can love God with the best of our energy and enjoy each day.

Romans 15:14-33

Paul explains that his letter to the Roman believers is meant to be a reminder of important truths. They know this stuff well enough to teach it, and yet they need a reminder. He expresses gratitude for the increasing number of people coming to faith in Jesus and his role in this mission from God. His mission is focused on reaching people who have not yet heard about Jesus the Messiah because this is part of the expressed will of God. Paul worked to discover God’s plans and desires. He then responded to this discovery by devoting his life to it. We can now follow in Paul’s example of just how to follow Jesus in life and mission.

1 Chronicles 12:23-40; 13; 14

It is important to note that David (and his leaders) searched out the will of God before making big decisions. They felt it necessary to come to agreement on whether a plan was in alignment with God’s will or not, before taking action. Sadly David did not follow this in his marriage decisions. We can learn from David’s decisions good and bad. Some of David’s team were people who understood the days that they lived in. They also understood the best course for Israel to take.
