Realizing the presence, promise, and power of the Kingdom of God.
Voices Together

Psalm 107:15-16

Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men. For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.

How much time do we spend in down right, out and out praise? I’m afraid that the honest answer is “Very little.” Oh, we preach the gospel on the street corners, but we spend all our time convicting our audience of their sin and very little introducing them to adoration of the LORD, God, the Almighty. We disciple our congregations on the need for obedience as a witness to the transforming power of the blood of Jesus Christ, but very little effort is put into teaching the need for adoration of the Triune God.

Do we, those individuals given the beautiful mission of shepherding the flock, spend much time leading them beside still waters and into green fields? Or is our focus more on getting the plate filled when it is passed?

Morning Psalm 132, Noon Psalm 119:41-48, Psalm 27

An alternate Reading Plan is based on 7 chapters/day from 7 sections of the Scriptures. My groupings are: Genesis-Joshua, Judges to Esther, Job to Song of Solomon, Psalms breaking 119 into convenient sets, Isaiah to Malachi, Matthew to Acts, Romans to Revelation.

Or set your own reading schedule up in convenient groupings as fits your study habits. But a daily time in the Word of the LORD is an absolute.
