LIFe with God: October 2, 2012

Posted on October 2, 2012

Scripture

Psalm 78

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why is each generation to teach God’s Word to following generations (6-8)? Why did God become furious with Israel (17-18,21-22)? How did God show His compassion?

Application

Do I contribute to training younger generations in righteousness? Do I disbelieve God and deliberately test Him? Do I thank Him and praise Him for His compassion and faithful love?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Father God, May I be a positive example rather than a negative one to younger generations, and impact them for You by Your Word and my lifestyle. Keep me from a disbelieving heart and from deliberately testing You. Thank You that You remain faithful even when I am unfaithful, and for extending Your faithful love and compassion to me. In the name of Jesus I offer You thanks and praise. 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:

  • Brandon & Lindsey Dockins
  • Ken & Twilla Eden (Mattea, Joseph, Joshua, Jonathan, Sophia)
  • Gil & Lois Estes
  • Gary Friend
  • Scott & Kristi Guinn (Josiah)

Missionaries:

  • J & G Simon, missionaries to Austria

CLF:

  • Ask that we would be a church that is devoted to true fellowship: Pray that we would be encouraged from being united with Christ, comforted by His love, bonded with His Spirit, tender and compassionate with one another. Pray that we would be like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Ask that we would do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider one another better than ourselves, looking not only to our own interests, but also to the interests of each other. Pray that we would all have the same attitude as that of Christ Jesus.

Community: Pray for outreaches & service projects

  • Creative strategies
  • Volunteers
  • Anointing of the Holy Spirit
  • Believers working together in unity
  • Provision of necessary resources
  • Salvation for people reached

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)
