1/12/18: What is God Saying to You?

As you read through this week’s devotions, you’ll notice that God is doing a lot of talking to people: guiding them, promising things to them, challenging them. Note what God says and how He says it. Note the reactions of the people who encounter Him. Then think about hearing God saying some of these things to you. Would you have responded differently? What will you do when you hear God speak to you through these devotions this week?

If you have more time than your devotional reading allows, read the context of each devotion’s focus verse. That means for you to at least read the entire chapter in which the verse is contained. Then ask yourself these three questions for each chapter:

  • What is this chapter saying?
  • What does this chapter mean?
  • What does this chapter mean for me?

Here are the focus verses and the extended chapters to read:

  • January 8 – Genesis 12:1-3, Proverbs 1:33
  • January 9 – Genesis 15:1, 16:3-4
  • January 10 – Genesis 16
  • January 11 – Genesis 18:14
  • January 12 – Genesis 18:25
  • January 13 – Genesis 21:1
  • January 14 – Genesis 21:14-19 (Sharon’s birthday!)

Each day, bask in the knowledge that we are walking more closely with God, deepening our relationship with Him, and giving Him glory for who He is.
