One Year Bible: Days 219-221 – 1 Chronicles 24-29; 1 Corinthians 3-5; Psalms 92-93; Proverbs 19:13-22

Day 219

1 Chronicles 24:1-26:19; 1 Corinthians 3:1-23; Psalm 92:1-15

Every believer has a part in the work of God. This comes through in the lists of names in 1 Chronicles 24-26. This is also taught in 1 Corinthians 3:6 which goes on to emphasize that the real work is not done by men but by the Lord. Man is not to be exalted – only the Lord: “You, O Lord, are exalted for ever” (Psalm 92:8).

Day 220

1 Chronicles 26:20-27:34; 1 Corinthians 4:1-21; Proverbs 19:13-22

The people of Israel had to do battle against their enemies. We also must wage war for God. Paul describes the hardships involved in true discipleship (1 Corinthians 4:9-12). In all of this, our intention must be to do the will of the Lord – “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails” (Proverbs 19:21).

Day 221

1 Chronicles 28:1-29:30; 1 Corinthians 5:1-13; Psalm 93:1-5

Our “boasting is not good” (1 Corinthians 5:6). It is better for us to boast in the Lord – “Praise be to You, O Lord …. Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power … Now, our God, we give You thanks, and praise Your glorious Name … Everything comes from You, and we have given You only what comes from Your hand …. O Lord our God, as for all this abundance that we have provided for building You a Temple for your Holy Name, it comes from Your hand, and all of it belongs to You” (1 Chronicles 29:10-16). “The Lord reigns, He is robed in majesty; the Lord is robes in majesty and is armed with strength …. the Lord on high is mighty” (Psalm 93:1,4). 1
