September 22 – Daily Notes – Amanda

potato-salad

This is not my recipe, but I get compliments every time I make it. You should try it. It’s great for barbecues, potlucks, and the like. I’d suggest the addition of a little bit of salt. You see, when we find things that are good, whether it’s a movie, recipe, or thought, we tend to share it. This is what the psalmist is calling us to do today. When God does something great in your life, tell others. Make it known so they might experience Him too.

Isaiah 39:1-41:16:

  • 1-8 – Hezekiah started out faithful, but like several other kings, made some poor choices in his later years. He shows off his wealth to his Babylonian visitor. It seems that the sin in this is trying to befriend Babylon in an effort to have an ally against Assyria. God wants Judah to seek him as their only ally.
  • 1-31 – God offers comfort to his people and assurance that he will care for them. There are several beautiful passages within the chapter that can speak comfort to us today.
  • 3 – This verse is quoted regarding John the Baptist who was called to prepare the way for Christ.
  • 8-10 – God continues to comfort the Israelites of Judah assuring them that he will hold them up and keep them safe.

Ephesians 1:1-23:

  • 3-10 – Paul praises God for allowing he and his fellow believers to know God and his grace. He thanks God for his plan of salvation.
  • 15-23 – This is Paul’s prayer for the church that the Ephesians would understand God’s great works and the gifts he had given them.

Psalm 66:1-20:

  • 5-7 – We see another reference to God’s great act of parting the Red Sea. The psalmist, who has great faith, knows that God’s acts are incredible and invites other simply to come and see what the Lord has done.
  • 16-17 – Not only does the psalmist want the reader to see God’s good works, the psalmist also wants to tell personally of the great things God has done.

Proverbs 23:25-28:

  • Here the proverb tries to warn of the temptations and consequences of lust.
