LIFe with God: March 15

Posted on March 15, 2012

Scripture

Genesis 37

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How did Jacob do a disservice to all of his sons (including Joseph)? What did Joseph dream, and what did it mean? How did his brothers respond?

Application

Do I cause strife by showing favoritism? Am I resentful of others who have nice things? Do I get jealous when God chooses to bless someone else with a special gift that I don’t have?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear God, Help me not to show favoritism, but rather may I extend Your love to everyone within my sphere of influence. keep me from a heart of envy and jealousy. Instead, help me to rejoice with others when You bless them with an ability or a possession. 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:

  • Pat & Hannah Kelley
  • Joe & Sheala Lehosit
  • Fred & Shirley Leonard
  • Mark & Michelle Morgan (Cody, Kyle)
