Living In The Overflow - Week 2

Read these passages each day to prepare for worship this next Sunday.

Monday, February 8 - Psalm 23:1-6

A Psalm of David.

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures. 
He leads me beside still waters. 
3 He restores my soul. 
He leads me in paths of righteousness 
for his name’s sake. 
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, 
I will fear no evil, 
for you are with me; 
your rod and your staff, 
they comfort me. 
5 You prepare a table before me 
in the presence of my enemies; 
you anoint my head with oil; 
my cup overflows. 
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me 
all the days of my life, 
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord 

Tuesday, February 9 - Matthew 6:25-34

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? 28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Wednesday, February 10 - Psalm 6

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith. A Psalm of David.

1 O Lord, rebuke me not in your anger,
nor discipline me in your wrath. 
2 Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am languishing; 
heal me, O Lord, for my bones are troubled. 
3 My soul also is greatly troubled. 
But you, O Lord—how long? 
4 Turn, O Lord, deliver my life; 
save me for the sake of your steadfast love. 
5 For in death there is no remembrance of you; 
in Sheol who will give you praise? 
6 I am weary with my moaning; 
every night I flood my bed with tears; 
I drench my couch with my weeping. 
7 My eye wastes away because of grief; 
it grows weak because of all my foes. 
8 Depart from me, all you workers of evil, 
for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping. 
9 The Lord has heard my plea; 
the Lord accepts my prayer. 
10 All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; 
they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment. 

Thursday, February 11 - James 1:2-18

2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
9 Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation, 10 and the rich in his humiliation, because like a flower of the grass he will pass away. 11 For the sun rises with its scorching heat and withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beauty perishes. So also will the rich man fade away in the midst of his pursuits.

12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. 13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. 14 But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. 15 Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.
16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. 18 Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. 

Friday, February 12 - Psalm 103:1-22

Of David.

1 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me, 
bless his holy name! 
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, 
and forget not all his benefits, 
3 who forgives all your iniquity, 
who heals all your diseases, 
4 who redeems your life from the pit, 
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, 
5 who satisfies you with good 
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. 
6 The Lord works righteousness 
and justice for all who are oppressed. 
7 He made known his ways to Moses, 
his acts to the people of Israel. 
8 The Lord is merciful and gracious, 
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. 
9 He will not always chide, 
nor will he keep his anger forever. 
10 He does not deal with us according to our sins, 
nor repay us according to our iniquities. 
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, 
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; 
12 as far as the east is from the west, 
so far does he remove our transgressions from us. 
13 As a father shows compassion to his children, 
so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him. 
14 For he knows our frame; 
he remembers that we are dust. 
15 As for man, his days are like grass; 
he flourishes like a flower of the field; 
16 for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, 
and its place knows it no more. 
17 But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, 
and his righteousness to children’s children, 
18 to those who keep his covenant 
and remember to do his commandments. 
19 The Lord has established his throne in the heavens, 
and his kingdom rules over all. 
20 Bless the Lord, O you his angels, 
you mighty ones who do his word, 
obeying the voice of his word! 
21 Bless the Lord, all his hosts, 
his ministers, who do his will! 
22 Bless the Lord, all his works, 
in all places of his dominion. 
Bless the Lord, O my soul!
