LIFe with God: March 7

Posted on March 7, 2012

Scripture

Genesis 30

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What does all the conflict in the first part of this chapter reveal about Jacob’s spiritual leadership in his family? How is Laban repaid for the way he deceived Jacob?

Application

Does my presence increase tranquility or does it increase conflict? Do I use underhanded methods to get ahead, even when I know God has promised to supply all my needs?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Help me to be a peacemaker and an example of godliness to my family and others in my sphere of influence. If someone deceives me and takes advantage of me, help me not to respond in kind, but to trust You to take care of me. 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 orphans and children in foster care…

  • that they would come to know the adoptive Father-heart of God
  • that they would be positively influenced by Christian workers
  • that God would bring Christian friends alongside them
  • that they would come to salvation
  • that they would be adopted by godly parents

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. All of you, take up My yoke and learn from Me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for yourselves. – Matthew 11:28-29 (HCSB)
