Among American Gods: Living in the Shadow of Glory


For Meditation

Find as quiet a space as possible. Read over these passages of Scripture twice. Take your time. Allow for 30 seconds of silence between passages in order to process and sit in the text for a few reflective moments. Then ask yourself the following questions:

+ What word or sentence most resonated or stood out to you as you read?
What word or sentence most confused or challenged you as you read?

Take some time to invite the Lord to speak to you, by His Spirit, about the passages you are reading. Invite Him to teach you about who He is and about you He is calling you to be as his child, through these words and phrases. Then take a few minutes to do the examen:

When did I cling to and confide in God the most?
+ When did I cling to or confide in God the least?

18 When the people saw the thunder and lightning and heard the trumpet and saw the mountain in smoke, they trembled with fear. They stayed at a distance 19 and said to Moses, “Speak to us yourself and we will listen. But do not have God speak to us or we will die.”

20 Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning.”

Titus 2:11-12

11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age,
