One Year Bible: Days 243-272

Day 243 Micah 5:1-7:20 ;  2 Corinthians 5:1-10 ;  Proverbs 21:17-26 God wipes out the shadow of our past - He “pardons sin” ( Micah 7:18 ). He shines in the light of His future - “We will be “clothed with our heavenly dwelling” ( 2 Corinthians 5:4 ).

If the blessing is to be maintained and increased, we must honour the Lord. We must cry to Him for blessing: “Hear my prayer, O God, listen to the words of my mouth.” We must call upon Him with faith: “Surely God is my help; the Lord is the One who sustains me” ( Psalm 54:2 , 4 ). Day 122 Joshua 21:20-22:34 ; John 3:1-21 ; Psalm 55:1-11 In all the social details of the division of the land, we must not lose sight of its spiritual basis ( Joshua 21:43-45 ). The important thing is that God, and not man, receives the glory: “Do not rebel against the Lord or against us by building an altar for yourselves, other than the altar of the Lord your God” ( Joshua 22:19 )
