LIFe with God: January 8-9

Posted on January 8, 2011

Scripture

Hebrews 6:13-7:10

Read or listen to today’s passage at Bible Gateway:

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hebrews%206:13-7:10&version=HCSB

Observation

How did God show Abraham he was serious about His promise? How are we able to “enter the inner sanctuary”?

Application

Am I willing to wait patiently like Abraham for God’s promises to be fulfilled? Do I let little, temporary issues distract me from the faith that comes from remembering that Jesus made the way for me to enter the inner sanctuary of God’s spiritual temple?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father, I confess that I am too impatient and have too little faith. I show my selfishness and ingratitude when I get distraught about life’s difficulties instead of patiently waiting, trusting You to fulfill Your promise. Give me more faith to trust You! Thank You that Jesus is my Lord, my Savior, and my high priest, who remains my priest forever! 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)
