Scripture

Psalm 77

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How does the psalmist contrast what he feels and what is true in spite of what he feels?

Application

Do I trust and praise God and hold fast to His faithfulness, even when my emotions and experience make me feel like He doesn’t care and won’t keep His promises?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father, Sometimes I don’t feel like You care about me. Sometimes I can’t see or understand how You are being faithful, and I doubt that You will fulfill Your promises. In times like that, lead me to recall Your faithful love to me and to Your people throughout history. Help me to reject my emotions and experience and reason when they are in contradiction of Your word, and strengthen me to hold on to my faith in You! 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 Daniels
  • Theresa Daniels
  • Brian & Eileen Davis
  • Patti Doty

Missionaries:

  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania

CLF:

  • That Christian Life Fellowship would be a church that is devoted to the Word of God, and that we would be doers of it and not just hearers; that we would study the Word and so always be prepared to give everyone an answer–in season and out of season–and be approved workers who do not need to be ashamed, able to accurately understand and explain it.

Community: Pray for Unity in the Body of Christ…

  • that we would be united in our love for Jesus and each other
  • that we would encourage and support each other
  • that we would focus on Biblical principles in every arena of our lives
  • that we would have a spirit of cooperation in outreach
  • that Satan’s divisive strategies would be confounded

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
No one undergoing a trial should say, “I am being tempted by God.” For God is not tempted by evil, and He Himself doesn’t tempt anyone. But each person is tempted when he is drawn away and enticed by his own evil desires. Then after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin, and when sin is fully grown, it gives birth to death. – James 1:13-15 (HCSB)
