Mo. 10/20/14: Joel 2:17b – 19 Why do people question God?
Why should they say among the peoples,
‘Where is their God?’”
Then the Lord will be zealous for His land,
And pity His people.
The Lord will answer and say to His people,
“Behold, I will send you grain and new wine and oil,
And you will be satisfied by them;
I will no longer make you a reproach among the nations.
Why do people question God? God’s people have forgotten Him.
Tu. 10/21/14: Micah 4:9 Why do His people cry aloud?
Now why do you cry aloud?
Is there no king in your midst?
Has your counselor perished?
For pangs have seized you like a woman in labor.
Why do His people cry aloud? His people want a king.
We. 10/22/14: Habakkuk 1:3 – 4 Why do His people cause trouble?
Why do You show me iniquity,
And cause me to see trouble?
For plundering and violence are before me;
There is strife, and contention arises.
Therefore the law is powerless,
And justice never goes forth.
Why do His people cause trouble? His people have iniquity.
Th. 10/23/14: Habakkuk 1:14 – 16 Why do His people oppress men?
Why do You make men like fish of the sea,
Like creeping things that have no ruler over them?
They take up all of them with a hook,
They catch them in their net,
And gather them in their dragnet…
Therefore they sacrifice to their net,
And burn incense to their dragnet;
Why do His people oppress men? They oppress men by bowing to idols.
Fr. 10/24/14: Romans 9:19 – 21 Why do His people find fault?
You will say to me then, “Why does He still find fault? For who has resisted His will?” But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed say to him who formed it, “Why have you made me like this?” Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor?
Why do His people find fault? They have forgotten the Potter and clay.
