Coffee Break Devotionals: From 1 Kings to Song of Songs of the Old Testament

372 pages9 hours


This book is part of Pastor Scott's Coffee Break Devotionals series. This portion of our journey through the Bible begins with the accounts of the kings of Judah and Israel. Some names are quite familiar to those who love the Bible. There’s Solomon and Jehoshaphat and Hezekiah. Many of the kings are pitiful failures who find plenty of opposition from prophets like Elijah and Jeremiah and Isaiah. With accounts of the Lord dealing with so much humanity we find ourselves in rich devotional material.

Then we move to the Wisdom Literature of the Bible. We’ll spend time with righteous Job and his friends as they deal with major issues related to his ordeal. After that we find ourselves spending time in the Bible’s hymnbook. We’ll conclude our time in this portion of the Bible with more music – the opera that is Solomon’s Song of Songs.

In the history and wisdom of the Scriptures we learn much about our own humanity. Beyond that, though, we see God at work in this world and in people’s lives.
I wrote these devotionals at a leisurely pace. Every morning I would get a cup of coffee and settle down in my favorite chair to read and prayerfully seek out a devotional thought for the day. These devotionals were written just one day at a time and I suggest that you read them as they were written: in a comfortable place with a cup of coffee (or tea if you prefer), and one day at a time. It’s my experience that when I make room for the Lord in my life that he is faithful to fill that space with his presence.
