’13 READ the BIBLE in a YEAR / Today’s Readings: Isaiah 41,42 / Psalms 66, 110
It’s been about 10 days since I’ve blogged, [written and reflected] on my daily Bible readings. Some of those days I’ve read the Scriptures and just chose not to write. Other days I spent reading other books, articles and watching or listening to podcasts. I try to fill my days with spiritual resources and whether I’m reading the Bible and meditating on the writings or listening to a pastor on the internet – each day I’m challenged to recognize God’s love and to share it.
In today’s readings I ran across these verses: Psalm 66:8,9 [NLT] Let the whole world bless our God and loudly sing his praises. 9 Our lives are in his hands, and he keeps our feet from stumbling.
What does “stumbling” look like in your daily life?
I stumble when I become “bigger” than my God. I stumble when I live to hear my praises sung, and when I expect “blessings”. I stumble when I “think” my life is in my hands.
Today, I choose to bless our God, I choose to let him keep me from stumbling.
Late last night I was studying the 1st chapter of James and one of the words that kept repeating in the chapter was “let” – and Psalm 66: 8 begins with the same word.
Let = choice
Today I choose to praise Him!
