Some Additional Bible Studies Are Happening!

Would you like some additional guidance as you study your Bible? We won’t start a new live online study until July. (I’m still praying about what chapter to study!) But we do have some other studies happening! For the rest of the month of April, I’m experimenting with a short mini-study of Psalm 1 on Instagram. This is a much more abbreviated sort of study, especially since it is only […]

Thirty (One) Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 31: Move Into His Shelter

I’m always a bit sad when we reach the last day of our study. It’s such a blessing to study with you all (but it will be nice to sleep at night again :-)). Today we’re going to ask the Lord to sink this psalm deep into our hearts where it will change the way we think, the way we respond to troubles, the way we turn away from our worries […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 30: Paraphrase

  We’ve done a bunch of observing, and quite a bit of looking at word meanings and at commentaries and cross-references. Does Psalm 91 mean more to you now than it did four weeks ago (or however long you decide to take finishing up the study )? We’re ready to do some reviewing, some praying, and some applying what we’ve learned to our lives. Assignment: Pray. Ask the Lord to help […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 29: God Speaks

Today we’re going to wrap up our study of the text, and then we’ll spend a couple more days reviewing and thinking about how to apply what we’ve been learning. (Our 30-day study is going to sneak a day or two past thirty days. ) Let’s take a closer look at two more words and a whole lot of promises as the psalmist brings his song to a close. Assignment: […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 28: From the Trenches

I want to share someone else’s words with you today, because they so beautifully picture what Psalm 91 is all about. Amy, after waiting in suspense for over two months for a diagnosis, now knows that she has stage 2 Hodgkins Lymphoma. She went in for her first chemo treatment this past week. Amy and her husband have been a source of love and encouragement to me and my family […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 25: Treading on the Serpent

The devil wants us to think God isn’t keeping His promises when He allows us to suffer. But God called His own Son to suffer — for us — and His Son trusted Him all the way to the cross. He knew that the Father’s plan was good. Thinking of Psalm 91:11-12 and of Satan’s misuse of it when Jesus was tempted in the wilderness, the old gospel song, He […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 24: Satan and Psalm 91

When we’re dwelling in the shelter of the Most High, we trust Him, knowing that no real evil can befall us, because God is always using whatever He allows in our lives for our good and His glory. As we saw yesterday in the additional comments in Treasury of David, God even uses dangers in order to protect us. He uses lesser evils to protect us from greater ones. Spending a few nights […]
