LIFe with God: December 3

Posted on December 3, 2010

Scripture

Luke 2

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How did the shepherds react to meeting Jesus? How is Jesus “the consolation of Israel”?

Application

Do I rejoice and spread the news that King Jesus came to earth? Do I seek in Him the consolation for my sorrows, pains, and difficulties?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Lord God, I am once again awestruck by these extraordinary, supernatural events, when You personally intervened on our behalf in the world. Like the shepherds, may I rush to see what You tell me, and then rejoice in it and spread the word, glorifying and praising You. Like Simeon, may I be overwhelmed by the realization of the fulfillment of Your promises in the person of Jesus and give You glory for it. Like Anna, may I give thanks and worship and share the good news! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!
One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries.

  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luke)
  • Andrea Rodriguez (Willie, Yulieta)

Ministry:

  • Boise Rescue Mission

CLF:

  • That we will be people who are devoted to giving to the Lord’s work and to anyone who has a need.

Community: Pray for the salvation of the lost & for seekers to find Jesus

  • Readiness to repent
  • Hearts prepared to hear God’s voice
  • A Deep dissatisfaction and unrest with life without Him
  • Godly influences

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. – James 1:22
