Daily Scripture Readings
Week of June 29, 2020
Monday: Philippians 4:1-13. Work to memorize verse 13 today. Practice saying it to yourself whenever you feel like you can’t go on.
Tuesday: Romans 8:31-39. Think of the biggest obstacle you’re facing right now, and then hear these words from verse 31: “If God is for us, then who can be against us?”
Wednesday: Psalm 27. Read this out loud as a prayer, praising God for being your light and your salvation – and your reason not to be afraid of any evildoer.
Thursday: James 1:2-8. How could our trials be considered nothing but “joy”? What difference does our faith in how we view our challenges?
Friday: 1 Corinthians 1:18-31. God calls us not because we’re powerful and smart and capable – in fact, God calls us because we’re inadequate but God can work through us. How might this realization give you courage to face a challenge today?
Saturday: 1 John 4:7-21. What are you afraid of? How can Christ provide you with a “perfect love” that replaces that fear with peace and faith?
