LIFe with God: May 19-20

Posted on May 19, 2012

Scripture

Judges 3

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What terrible mistake did the Israelites make (5-7)? How did God punish them? How and why did He deliver them? Then what happened?

Application

Do I give in to the lure of the world around me and “practice evil in full view of the LORD”? Do I repent and cry out to God? Do I keep repeating the pattern?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in heaven, I admit that I fall sway to the enticement of this sinful world and my own desires, and I commit evil before You. I thank You that You hear when I call and You have delivered me many times. I ask that You would empower me to break the pattern of falling back in to sin time and time again, and that I would follow You faithfully. In Jesus’ name 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)
