I would like take this time to thank you for reading and liking the posts. This blog started from a small group several years ago with just a few followers and now has grown to over 2,020 followers. I’ve found it to be a great tool in my journey through the Bible and you, my readers are holding me accountable to daily Bible reading and study.
We live in a busy world with busy schedules and being able to share some thoughts about this journey with others across this world through the Internet is truly a blessing. Questions for Reflection will stimulate thought and offer ideas for applying biblical principles at work, at home, and in all we do.
Here is a link to all the devotionals done so far.
If you are visiting and would like to get notified with each new post, I invite you to click on the follow button on the far top right of this page to join me on this journey.
Also, the concepts presented in God’s Perfect Timing offer ideas for using our time wisely and the lessons of God’s Plan for Us gives a method towards making an impact in the world in which we live.
The reading plan below will be used to hold me accountable to sharing about God’s word. As I share about my study of the book of Deuteronomy over the next few weeks, it’s important to have a plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Christ as Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day amazing!
Questions for Reflection
Deuteronomy 1-2 – What is the history as Israel stands on the threshold of a new land and new life? Who will have authority after Moses dies (1:9-18, 38)? How would the information in chapter 2 give renewed confidence to the Israelites? How does God use experiences to build your confidence?
Deuteronomy 3 – What can you learn about prayer from Moses’ prayer? What do you think are Moses’ feelings as he sees the Promised Land? What are Moses’ final duties?
Deuteronomy 4 – What important principles and themes are affirmed here? What is the covenant? What are the consequences of Israel’s obedience and disobedience to this covenant?
Deuteronomy 5 – In what ways do the Ten Commandments (see Ex. 20) place all of life under God’s claim (Relate v. 6 and the commandments)? Why is there added meaning to the commandment about the Sabbath? What is Moses’s role in Israel’s life?
Deuteronomy 6 – What do you learn about the character of God from this passage? How can you follow the commands of verses 4-9 today? What significance does Israel’s redemption from Egypt have in this chapter? What can you do to remember God is with you always?
Deuteronomy 7 – What is the relationship like between God and the Israelites? What will God do for the Israelites? What is God’s response to those who love Him?
Feel free to respond with a short note or a comment about any of the questions above. Also, I welcome any other thoughts or ideas, favorite inspirational videos, photos, or favorite Bible verses. Just add them to the comments or to a Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God.
