Reading God’s Word: 1 Samuel 30-31; Proverbs 19

Memorizing God’s Word: Proverbs 18:21 The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

Meditating on God’s Word: 1 Samuel 30:6 David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the LORD his God.

Praying God’s Word “Lord, like David, I find myself greatly distressed sometimes, either because of decisions I have made or because of the impact of decisions others have made that affect me. When I feel stress, remind me to turn to you. Teach me how to “find strength in” you. Teach me how to “strengthen myself in you” (ESV). “You are my strength.” (Ps 22:19). Amen.”
