LIFe with God: November 9

Posted on November 9, 2011

Scripture

Exodus 25

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

From whom did God instruct Moses to receive an offering (2)? What was the significance of the fact that the ark was portable?

Application

Am I in tune with the Holy Spirit so that my heart will stir me to give? When my heart does stir me to give, do I obey? Do I set my heart on following God and dwelling in His presence wherever I go?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in Heaven, Stir my heart to give when and what You would have me give, and may I be obedient to that stirring. Help me to focus my heart on Your presence, and may I ever dwell there and follow You wherever You lead me. 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 marriages in our community…

  • that Christ-like love would be exhibited
  • for good communication between spouses
  • for unity in finances
  • salvation for non-believing spouses
  • that they would balance work and home life
  • that Godly friends and mentors would come alongside them.

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Instead, just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please men, but rather God, who examines our hearts. – 1 Thessalonians 2:4 (HCSB)
