LIFe with God: May 24

Posted on May 24, 2012

Scripture

Judges 7

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why did God want to pare down Israel’s army? What did God promise Gideon (7)? What happened when Gideon followed God’s instructions (19-21)?

Application

Do I trust in things I can see more than in God? Do I believe God keeps His promises? Do I believe it enough to be obedient even when the odds are overwhelmingly against me from an earthly perspective?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear God, Thank You for the way You used Gideon! That 300 men with just trumpets, pitchers and torches could defeat such a huge host is impossible without Your intervention. Thank you for promising victory and for delivering it. help me to walk in obedience and faith! 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

  • Mark & Michelle Morgan (Cody, Kyle)
