Reflection Day!

Here are the passages the devotional uses to illustrate anthropomorphism (describing an attribute of God in human terms):

Isaiah 51:9 “Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD.”

2 Chronicles 16:9 “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him.”

1 Samuel 15:22 “And Samuel said, ‘Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of rams.'”

Joshua 4:24 “so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of the LORD is mighty, that you may fear the LORD your God forever.”

Ezra 7:6 “this Ezra went up from Babylonia. He was a scribe skilled in the Law of Moses that the LORD, the God of Israel, had given, and the king granted him all that he asked, for the hand of the LORD his God was on him.”

Do you feel God’s guidance and care? Have you known His strength and support? Do you listen to Him?

You may have wondered why the devotional has 9 chapters one day and only 2 another! It seems that anytime it goes over material that is similar to what we’ve read before, or lists a lot of names, it assumes that we will be skimming the material. I sometimes listen to sections like that on a device where I can adjust the reading speed. The smaller sections allow us to dig into the story a little more, and give us time to think about the meaning. I like to read through those sections a little more slowly or more frequently. The amazing thing about the Bible is that you see new things every time you go through an old passage!
