LIFe with God: November 16

Posted on November 16, 2011

Scripture

Exodus 32

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did the people and Aaron do when Moses didn’t come back right away? What was God’s reaction? How did Moses respond to God? How did Aaron respond when confronted by Moses?

Application

Am I fickle in my faith? Do I intercede on behalf of brothers and sisters who have fallen into sin? When confronted with my sin, do I own up to it and repent, or do I make the excuse that “it just happened”?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in Heaven, While at first it may seem inconceivable that a people for whom You had done so much would turn from You so quickly, I must confess that I see myself in this passage. You have done many great things for me, and yet I allow myself to doubt You, and try to solve my problems on my own or look for solutions apart from you–which is idolatry every bit as much as making a golden calf. Keep me from such sin, Lord, and remind me to intercede for fellow Christians who give in to temptation. May I be accountable and take responsibility when I sin, and confess it and repent of it. I pray these things 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 & 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.

Community: Pray for Mountain Home…

  • That city leaders would submit to God
  • That people can find and keep gainful employment
  • For sound financial management by city officials
  • Salvation for unbelievers
  • For the mayor, city council members, and public works officials
  • For the air base: safety for military and their families (especially those who are deployed), sound military strategies by commanders, impact for Christ in areas where deployed

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Finally then, brothers, we ask and encourage you in the Lord Jesus, that as you have received from us how you must walk and please God—as you are doing—do so even more. – 1 Thessalonians 4:1 (HCSB)
