Get the most out of Hungry Bible


OT

62:5-8 Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. Selah

63:3-8 Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you. On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night. Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.

64:10 Let the righteous rejoice in the LORD and take refuge in him; let all the upright in heart praise him!

66:20 Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!

NT

5:19 Do not entertain an accusation against an elder unless it is brought by two or three witnesses.

6:6-12 But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.


OT Flash Points

Praise God who did not ignore my prayer and did not withdraw his unfailing love from me

NT Flash Points

Christian children repay their parents by taking care of them when they are old
True religion with contentment is great gain
Seeking wealth is foolish and harmful


Perspective

Completeness – rest
Don’t allow dis-peace
Turn to Him and ask for His peace
Self-pity is satanic
Complete life – the life of a child
Wherever Jesus comes He establishes rest
