Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of Wisdom: Week 3, Day 4: Proverbs 28 and 29

Summary of Proverbs 28

Righteous are bold as a lion. Those who seek God understand what is right. Blessed are those who tremble before God. A faithful person will be richly blessed. Those who trust in the Lord will prosper. Those who give to the poor will lack nothing.

Summary of Proverbs 29

Discipline your children, and they will give you peace. They will bring you the delights you desire. The lowly in spirit gain honor. Whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe. The righteous care about justice.

Questions for Proverbs 28 and 29

9) Leaders maintain order, support the poor, and righteous rulers cause their people to rejoice. Unsure. I don’t think I lead at all in my community.

10) Work hard and give to the poor. Be discerning. A faithful person will be richly blessed. Unsure what will change. Hopefully, God’s will be done.

11) When the righteous triumph, there is great elation; but when the wicked rise to power, people go into hiding. I think people know when good people are in charge and bad people are. Our lives are better when our leaders look out for our best interests.

Conclusions to Wordgo Study of Wisdom Proverbs 28 and 29

Lots of words on authority and power. Only fearing the Lord leads to wisdom.

Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of Wisdom: Week 2, Day 4: Psalms 7, 10 & 13

Summary of Psalm 7

David prays fo God to deliver him from those who pursue him. He finds refuge in God and prays that if he has done evil to be killed. He asks God to judge the people and bring justice and end the wicked. His shield is God, and those who are evil will bring violence on their own heads. He gives thanks to God for his righteousness and praises Him.

Summary of Psalm 10

David asks God why he stands far off at times. Those who do evil believe God won’t notice them. David asks God to not forget the helpless. He asks God to hold those accountable for their wickedness.

Summary of Psalm 13

David again asks God why he is forgotten and why God hides his face from him. He asks for answers. Yet, David trusts in God’s unfailing love, and he praises Him.

Questions for Psalms 7, 10 & 13

9) Savior, Deliverer, just, Ruler, Shield, righteous Judge, Father, King, encourager, compassionate, Most High. Savior and encourager matter the most to me right now.

10) Psalm 7 tells us how God grants justice and how He vindicates. Psalm 10 show us how God deals with those who do evil. God always sees the afflicted and defends the fatherless.

11) I think God sees me, but sometimes it feels as if He does not. I am currently waiting answers to a request. Since patience is not a virtue of mine, it’s a bit stressful. Verse 5: I trust in your unfailing love

Conclusions to Wordgo Study of Wisdom Psalms 7, 10 & 13

I love these verses where David bears his heart like we all do. How he asks God where He is. How he questions God, but he still has faith. That is my desire, too.

7 Summer Bible Studies You Should Know

Hey all!

If you are like me, you may be struggling with what to study this coming summer when BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) takes a break. It’s important to always be in the Word of God, but it can be challenging to do so.

Here are some suggested summer Bible studies you can try, or see if your local church is doing any to join.

  1. The Faithful by Priscilla Shirer, Kelly Minter, Beth Moore, and more
  2. The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer
  3. Seamless by Angie Smith (check out the teen girl’s version, too)
  4. Read throught the book of Proverbs
  5. Pursuing Holiness: Applications from the Book of James by Philip Nation
  6. Detours: The Unpredictable Path to Your Destiny by Tony Evans
  7. 30-Day Challenges by Nancy Leigh Demoss

I will be using WordGo’s Bible studies and posting my answers, similar to what I did last year. These will begin sometime in June and run through the middle of August. The great thing about these summer Bible studies is that they are short, so they aren’t a big time commitment.

It doesn’t matter which summer Bible study you choose; all that matters is that you pick one.

Have a great summer everyone!

Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of Hebrews: Week 4, Day 2: Hebrews 11:17-40

SUMMARY OF HEBREWS 11:17-40

Abraham had faith that God would raise Isaac from the dead if he sacrified him. By faith, Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau, and Jacob blessed each of Joseph’s sons. Joseph spoke of the Exodus from faith, and Moses’s parents hid him out of faith.

By faith, Moses chose to leave Egypt and be mistreated along with the people of God. His disgrace for Christ was of greater value than material rewards. He persevered and kept the Passover. The people of God crossed the Red Sea out of faith, and the walls of Jericho fell out of faith. Rahab was preserved out of faith.

By faith, countless others followed and conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained God’s promises. Some were tortured and flogged; others were stoned and killed. God has planned a way for them to be made perfect.

QUESTIONS FOR HEBREWS 11:17-40

4 ) They all do, really. I like Rahab because she was a Gentile who had faith. Abraham was about to kill his son so that’s incredible there, too.

5 ) Faith that all barriers will be removed in my walk in God’s will.

6 ) Keep doing the right thing and putting one foot in front of the other.

CONCLUSIONS TO WORDGO HEBREWS 11:17-40

The pillars of faith are listed here, from Abraham to the prophets and the countless others who suffered for Christ. Very inspiring. Very humbling. And very encouraging to keep doing God’s will in your life.

BSF Summer Bible Studies

For many of us, when BSF ends and takes a summer break, we are left scrambling for some way to stay in His word. Without an official study, this can be incredibly challenging for many, and sometimes, Bibles can go unopened all summer until Bible Study Fellowship begins again in the fall.

BSF is now offering summer bible studies for those who want to stay in His word over the summer. This is available via their app, WordGo. You simply go to your PlayStore and download this free app. Once downloaded, you’ll be able to pick a course that lasts anywhere from two weeks to six weeks. These are manageable time slots for many.

These BSF studies of the Bible include questions, so you can dig deeper in God’s Word. You can watch BSF’s explanation HERE

BSF encourages you to do these together. However, in today’s world, going it alone is okay, too. Plus, this may be easier for some who prefer to study their Bibles early in the morning or late at night.

I plan on picking one of these and posting my answers here. I am hoping some of you will at least follow along and maybe chime in the comments when prompted. Or, just read my summeries when you have a bit of time.

There’s a poll on the sidebar. I’d like your input for which study we start with. I plan on beginning this early to mid-June. I will announce that here on my blog.

Summer Devotional July 28th, 2017

2 Corinthians 1:4:  “[God of all comfort] who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.”

We all know someone who is suffering or worse off than ourselves.  Be the ear they desperately need and the prayer they won’t ask for.

Summer Devotional July 26th, 2017

Isaiah 35:4:  “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.”

Reminders we need to hear often as we often forget:

  1.  We have nothing to fear with God.
  2. God will come with vengeance.  Our job is to forgive.  God’s job is to punish those who do wrong against us.
  3. God will save us.  Now.  In the present moment when all is hopeless.  And in the future.  He is with us always.  We will be with Him always.

Summer Devotional June 23rd, 2017

Matthew 21:22:  “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”

Just a reminder God desires faith first.  Faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.  Faith in Him.  And faith in God’s will for your life.  Believe with all your heart in God.  Ask with all your heart for what He desires.  Ask for miracles.  Ask for big things.  Ask for little things.  Ask, ask, and keep asking.  God hears.  God answers.  He promises.  He never fails.
