TAKE TIME: October 28-November 2 Reading Schedule

Introduction: This week we will read of David's successes that showcase his use of the sword to triumph over his enemies. Then we will read of the sin that showcases the sword hanging over his family for the rest of his life. It might not seem like it, but in both of these times David was a man living by grace. It is as simple as that.

  • Monday - II Samuel chapter 8
  • Tuesday - II Samuel chapter 9
  • Wednesday - II Samuel chapter 10
  • Thursday - II Samuel chapter 11
  • Friday - II Samuel chapter 12
  • Saturday - Psalm 51

Memory Verse

Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from sin. Psalm 51:1-2

Prayer Journal (ACTS)
  • Adoration - This week take time each day to praise God for His mercy!
  • Confession - Ask God to reveal hidden sin in your life and then confess it.
  • Thanksgiving - Thank God for any answers to your prayers.
  • Supplication - What are your prayer requests this week? List them for future reference so that you can see how God answers.

Search the Scriptures

Look for references for each of the following:
  • Promises that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?
  • References that either refer to or infer something about future events.
  • What does this passage teach about Jesus?
  • Commandments that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?

Putting the Word into Action

Our reading this week documents the triumphs and defeats of David's physical and spiritual life. Trick or treaters will soon be knocking on the door! Why not give them the treat of a gospel witness along with plenty of goodies (and that does not necessarily mean just candy)?
