LIFe with God: October 5

Scripture

Proverbs 30

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How can we show that we esteem God’s Word (verses 5-6)? How should you respond at the realization that you have been speaking foolishly, boasting, and scheming (32)?

Application

Do I ponder on and appreciate the purity of God’s Word and its protection for me? Do I add or take away from His words to suit my opinions or to justify myself? Do I need to act more quickly to put my hand over my mouth?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in Heaven, Again today I thank You for the great gift of Your Word. Thank You for revealing Your will and Your way in it. It is perfectly pure, and it is a shield for Your people. help me to come to it as the psalmist did when he said, “Open my eyes that i might see wonderful things in Your Word,” and “I have treasured Your word in my heart so that I may not sin against You.” Help me to study it and apply it and assimilate it. May Your Spirit teach me through it and prevent me from speaking foolishly, boastfully, or in a scheming way. If I do sin by speaking in this manner, remind me to quickly clamp my hand over my mouth, and then confess and renounce my sin. I ask these things in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, 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 & Jamie Haberkorn (Hannah, Sean)
  • David & MaryBeth Hollander (Cole, Marcus)
  • Bob & Peggy Hoover

Ministry:

  • Chrysalis Women’s Transitional Housing

CLF:

  • Pray that we would be a church that is dedicated to the breaking of bread, both in the sense of being devoted to observing the Lord’s Supper, and in meeting together for meals to fellowship, to deepen bonds, to heal offenses, and to end disputes.
