February 23 – Daily Notes – Amanda

Is that a habit? Get it!?! Because she’s wearing a…oh never mind. Jesus had a habit that he was known for. This habit is mentioned frequently throughout the Gospels and it seemed to be a big part of who he was. Jesus went off by himself to pray. When things were getting rowdy or something major had just happened, Jesus didn’t panic, run away, or take charge, he went to pray. What’s your habit?

Leviticus 14:1-57:

  • 21 – Note that modifications were made for those who were poor, but everyone still had to offer something.
  • 34 – Why would God put leprous disease in an Israelites house if it is unclean? Remember, being unclean wasn’t necessarily because you had sinned and it wasn’t sinful to be unclean.
  • The priests must have been extremely busy with leprosy cases considering all the checks and double-checks they had to perform.

Mark 6:30-56:

  • 34 – “Sheep without a shepherd” – like any of us before we find Christ.
  • 44 – Five thousand men means there were at least as many women and children.
  • 46 – Jesus is frequently described as going off by himself to pray. This seems to be how he regroups and reconnects after strenuous teaching or healings.
  • 52 – Once again we see someone’s heart hardened. It does not mention who did the hardening this time. When our hearts are hardened we are unable to recognize God’s work.

Psalm 40:1-10:

  • This Psalm is helpful when we need restoration.
  • Encouragement to share the work God has done in your life, “I have not hidden your deliverance”, “I have spoken of your faithfulness.”

Proverbs 10:11-12:

  • The difference in result when our words are righteous and when they’re wicked.
