Monday, May 22nd: 1 Chronicles 16-18; John 7:28-53 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is 1 Chronicles 16-18; John 7:28-53

I loved David's song of thanks in 1 Chronicles 16.

The entire song is focused on God - remembering His faithfulness, and giving Him glory and praise for who He is and what He has done and continues to do for His people.

We need to adopt that same attitude of thanks.  We, too, need to be purposeful about remembering God's faithfulness to us - and we should be specific in our remembering, the way David was, recounting His provision and His work in our lives.  We need to glorify Him for this faithfulness, and praise Him for who He is.  And then we need to live our lives in light of our thankfulness for His faithfulness to us.

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage:  1 Chronicles 19-21; John 8:1-27

John 7:30
Then the leaders tried to arrest him; but no one laid a hand on him, because his time[a] had not yet come.

John 7:44
Some even wanted him arrested, but no one laid a hand on him.

Its obvious that God is in control, many people wanted to harm Jesus but didn't or couldn't, His time had not yet come. What an awesome sign of God's power.

He is in control, even when it looks to us like things around us are out of control.
