I've been personally going through the Psalms for a couple years, we're going through Hebrews on the podcast and our church has been going through Luke recently.
I've just been repeatedly surprised lately at how God has caused these long established/scheduled studies to line up with events in my life, line up with each other(as a passage from one book may be quoted in support of the idea in another passage in a completely separate study) or things central to my thoughts, as well as things happening in this community.
Well, add one more to the list. Last night at the college group I serve in, the college pastor taught from Psalm 146, which I just arrived at late last week in my study through the Psalms. His choice of the Psalm was intentionally timed to the election season, but mine wasn't. And after turning off another depressing presidential debate last night, worried about the state and future of our country, I was confronted with verse 3-5 of Psalm 146 just an hour later:
Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish. Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God,(ESV)
The Holy Spirit has not made a habit of doing this kind of thing with me, until recently. And it may just last for a season. But I wanted to put it out there again for you guys to see with me, and invite us all to perk up our ears. God seems to be doing something unusual with me in my interaction with his word recently and I don't want to miss out on what he's drawing my attention to. And it may be that he will do the same thing for you as you make yourself available to his word.
May Yahweh bless all of us with an increasing hunger for time in his word, and a willingness to let it both encourage and pierce our hearts.
