LIFe with God: March 1, 2013

Scripture

Malachi 3

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

After all the times Israel turned against God, why didn’t He turn against them (6-7)? What promise does God make regarding how the wicked are often better off in this life than the righteous (14-18)?

Application

Am I thankful to God that he remains faithful to me even when I am unfaithful to Him? Do I trust Him to set things right one day, rewarding the righteous and punishing the wicked?

Prayer

Dear Father, Thank You for Your faithful love that never changes and never ends! Thank You that You are and always will be in control–and You will reward those who are Yours and judge those who are wicked. 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.

  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz
  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luc)
  • Keith Rast

Ministry:

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:
Don’t you know that your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God in your body. – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (HCSB)
