Scripture reading for January 17th: Genesis 30-31, Mark 12, Psalm 11
Key Scriptures: Mark 12:26-27 “”And as for the dead being raised, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the passage about the bush, how God spoke to him, saying, ‘I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not God of the dead, but of the living. You are quite wrong.””
Genesis 31:11-13 “Then the angel of God said to me in the dream, ‘Jacob’, and I said, “Here I am!’ And he said, ‘Lift up your eyes and see, all the goats that mate with the flock are striped, spotted, and mottled, for I have seen all that Laban is doing to you. I am the God of Bethel, where you anointed a pillar and made a vow to Me. Now arise, go out from this land and return to the land of your kindred.'”
The carnal mind, even religious mind, has an impossible dilemma in believing the truths of Scripture. The Bible declares that God is, He was, and He is to come. He is ever alive and present with His people and able to speak to them when they are humble enough to listen. The Sadducees were a religious sect of Israel that would not believe in the supernatural. They denied a future life and only embraced the books of Moses. Jesus rebuked them from the book they claimed to believe!
Faith Confession and prayer: Lord, thank You for speaking to Your people and giving rebuke to those who hold false beliefs. Help me to walk with You today and speak to me from Your Word. I long to see Your face!
Psalm 11:7 “For the Lord is righteous; He loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold His face.”
Scripture reading for January 11th: Genesis 29-31, Matthew 9
Key Scriptures: Matthew 9:20-22 “And Jesus rose and followed him, with His disciples. And behold, a woman who had suffered from a discharge of blood for twelve years came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His garment, for she said to herself, “If I only touch His garment, I will be made well.” Jesus turned and seeing her He said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And instantly the woman was made well.”
Jesus was responding to a ruler whose child had died and had asked Jesus to come to his house. On the way, a woman reached out and touched Jesus’ robe. Jesus felt the touch and responded to her with an encouraging declaration. “Your faith has made you well.” Faith starts in the heart and comes from hearing God’s Word. Faith moves the possessor to believe, act and receive.
Genesis 31:11-13 “Then the angel of God said to me in the dream, ‘Jacob,’ and I said, ‘Here I am!’ And he said, ‘Lift up you eyes and see, all the goats that mate with the flock are striped, spotted, and mottled, for I have seen all that Laban is doing to you. I am the God of Bethel, where you anointed a pillar and made a vow to Me.”
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I believe in You and Your Word. Teach me to walk in faith and keep my heart trusting in You. May I touch You each day as I pray for my needs and others who need You! In Jesus’ Name! Amen!
