1 Chronicles 12:16-18

And some of the men of Benjamin and Judah came to the stronghold to David. David went out to meet them and said to them, “If you have come to me in friendship to help me, my heart will be joined to you; but if to betray me to my adversaries, although there is no wrong in my hands, then may the God of our fathers see and rebuke you.”Then the Spirit clothed Amasai, chief of the thirty, and he said, “We are yours, O David, and with you, O son of Jesse! Peace, peace to you, and peace to your helpers! For your God helps you.” Then David received them and made them officers of his troops.

An interesting usage, that the Spirit clothed Amasai. But on the other hand, not strange at all. My grandson, Jack, is a career member of the United States Army. When another member of the US Army, or any other army for that matter, sees Jack in full uniform, they know immediately his rank, his responsibility, his training, and much about his past experiences. He is clothed by the US Army.

I’m quite sure that the Holy Spirit clothed Amasai and troops for the same purpose. They took over command and control of the Army of King David and were directed to lead his forces. They were clothed for the purpose.

Reading

Morning Psalm 114, Noon Psalm 119:75-82, Evening Psalm 45, If you follow this regimen, you will pray through the Psalms every 47 days or just under 8 times per year.

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. This plan, over a several year period will result in an average reading of the entire Bible in slightly over twice per year. I've been following this plan since 1989 and still find the mixture of Scriptures presented each day to be a delightful way to end my day. The NLB app has a scheduling tool that assists greatly in keeping track of the reading list.

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.

Suggested Supplementary Reading

The Christian’s Creed: Embracing the Apostolic Faith by Dr. Stanley D. Gale. There is also a workbook available.
