Scripture

Judges 21

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What was the result of the horrible circumstances from the previous two chapters? How does the last verse of this chapter sum up this situation as well as the entire book of Judges?

Application

Has there been a time in my life where I have had to endure the painful consequences of doing “whatever I wanted?” Did I learn my lesson, or do I go on making the same mistakes?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in heaven, Thank You for the book of Judges, which shows how You faithfully provide for Your people and give grace, even when they are unfaithful to You. Help me live my life based on what You want, not what I want 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)
