LIFe with God: July 25

Posted on July 25, 2011

Scripture

Psalms 19-21

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What does Psalm 19 tell us about God’s work and God’s Word and how we should respond to it? According to Psalm 20, in what alone are we to trust? To what does David attribute Israel’s victories and success in Psalm 21?

Application

Do I give God glory for His handiwork in nature? Do I revere His Word as David does in Psalm 19, and respond to it by having speech and attitudes that please Him? Do I trust in Him alone and give Him all the glory and credit for all good things?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, I praise You as the Creator and Maker of all things. Everywhere I look in nature I see Your great glory proclaimed and the knowledge that You are God and God alone. Your instruction is perfect, reviving the soul; Your testimony is trustworthy, making the inexperienced wise. Your precepts are right, making the heart glad; Your commandment is radiant, making the eyes light up. The fear of You is pure, enduring forever; Your ordinances are reliable and altogether righteous. They are more desirable than gold–than an abundance of pure gold; and sweeter than honey–than honey dripping from the comb. Thank You for warning me by them; there is great reward in keeping them. I ask that You would cleanse me from my hidden faults and unintentional sins, and keep me from willful sins; do not let them rule over me. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to You, Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.

I thank You that You answer prayer, and I ask that Your people would turn to You in earnest prayer and that You would hear their cry and answer them. Then may we shout for joy and give You all the credit and glory. May I always only take pride in You, Yahweh my God. Be exalted, Lord, in Your strength; I will sing and praise your might. I pray this 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:

  • Mike Daniels
  • Theresa Daniels
  • Travis & Hali Davidson (Andrew)
  • Brian & Eileen Davis

Missionaries:

  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania

CLF:

  • That Christian Life Fellowship would be a church that is devoted to the Word of God, and that we would be doers of it and not just hearers; that we would study the Word and so always be prepared to give everyone an answer–in season and out of season–and be approved workers who do not need to be ashamed, able to accurately understand and explain it.

Community: Pray for Public Service Professionals (Firefighters, law enforcement, and medical personnel)…

  • Strength to serve well
  • Safety/health
  • Salvation for lost & ministry opportunities for saved
  • Strong family/marriage relationships
  • Strong, God-honoring friendships

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
For in the gospel God’s righteousness is being revealed from faith to faith, as it is written, “The righteous will live by faith.” – Romans 1:17 (ISV)
