Text covered:1 Samuel 28:20, 1 Kings, 2 Kings 25:30
Memory verse: 2 Samuel 22:2-4: ‘The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in who I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior-from violent men you save me. I call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies.’

Unfortunately I was unable to keep up with my readings this week :( But I am not giving up!
I did want to share a portion of David's Song of Praise (2 Samuel 22) You really should read it in it's entirety but here is a part that really spoke to me:
31 "As for God, his way is perfect;
the word of the Lord is flawless.
He is a shield
for all who take refuge in him.
32 For who is God besides the Lord?
And who is the Rock except our God?
33 It is God who arms me with strength
and makes my way perfect.
34 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
he enables me to stnad on the heights.
35 He trains my hands for battle;
my arms can ben a bow of bronze.
36 You give my your shield of victory;
you stoop down to make me great.
37 You broaden the path beneath me,
so that my ancles do not turn.'
It is so easy to say that 'God's way is perfect and so much harder to know that 'God's way is perfect'. We have to recognize that His way is perfect, believe it is perfect, and trust it is perfect. It is my prayer for you that in whatever situation you may be faced with right now that you recognize, believe and trust in Him and that His way is indeed PERFECT!!!
