LIFe with God: July 21-22

Posted on July 21, 2012

Scripture

Nehemiah 7

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Along with his brother Hanani, why did Nehemiah entrust Jerusalem to Hananiah (2)? Why did Nehemiah record the genealogy of the people (5)?

Application

Would others describe me as a faithful person who fears God more than most? Why or why not? What has God put on my mind that I need to do?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in heaven, Make I live my life as a person who is faithful and fears You. When You put a task on my mind or in my heart, may I be faithful to carry it out. In Jesus’ name I ask this, 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)
