As you can tell, its been just over two weeks since I’ve written about my daily bible reading. I’m pleased to say that its only the writing that’s been by the wayside; I’ve continued to read each and every day.
However, while I have continued my daily reading, the writing has been more difficult. It seems that most days for the last couple weeks I just didn’t have the time or energy to do the writing. I’ve thought a bit about going back and doing “catch-up,” but instead decided to do this one post with a verse for each of the days that I highlighted while reading, and focus on the writing going forward. So, without further ado….
April 14: The verses that stood out to me was 1 Samuel 17:41-47. This is where David defeat’s Goliath because of God’s faithfulness.
April 15: 1 Samuel 20:32-33. I just thought the NLT translation of this passage was funny…I read verse 33 in a dead-pan type tone. “So at last Jonathan realized that his father was really determined to kill David.” Duh.
April 16: Psalm 142
April 17: 1 Samuel 24:16-17. This is what we should do: repay evil with good.
April 18: Psalm 56
April 19: 2 Samuel 1: 14-16. David has the man killed who killed Saul.
April 20: 2 Samuel 2:4. David becomes King of Judah.
April 21: 2 Samuel 4:9-12.
April 22: 2 Samuel 5:1-3. David becomes King of all Israel.
April 23: 1 Chronicles 16:23. This verse is one in a song that David wrote of thanksgiving to the Lord.
April 24: 2 Samuel 7:12. A foreshadowing of Jesus.
April 25: 2 Samuel 8:15
April 26: This contains the passage of David’s adultery with Bathsheba. 2 Samuel 12:11-12 tells of the consequences of David’s actions. Even though God forgives us our sins, that does not remove the consequences in our lives, and in the lives of others. This is a difficult lesson to learn and understand, but is true nonetheless. Psalm 51 records David’s anguish and repentance.
April 27: 2 Samuel 14:13-14
April 28: 2 Samuel 15:24-26
April 29: 2 Samuel 18:8. An interesting verse that I need to research a bit.
April 30: Psalm 7
