LIFe with God: February 4-5

Posted on February 4, 2012

Scripture

Genesis 3

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did Adam and Eve do after realizing they were naked? What did each say when confronted by God? How did God respond?

Application

Do I try to hide from God when I’m ashamed? Do I try to place the blame on someone else? Am I grateful for the grace of God?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in heaven, May I never hide from you when I sin, for there is nowhere to hide that You cannot see. Instead of trying to cover up, shift blame, or justify, may I take responsibility, confess, repent, and move on in Your grace and forgiveness. In the name of Christ Jesus I pray, 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)
