LIFe with God: June 20, 2013

Posted on June 20, 2013

Scripture

1 Samuel 22

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did the prophet Gad tell David, and what did David do? What does Saul’s speech in verses 7-8 reveal about his character? What did Doeg tell Saul, and what horrible act did Saul command as a result? How did God preserve the priesthood, and what does David’s response reveal about his character?

Application

Am I more like Saul or David?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
My Father and my God, Keep me from a heart like Saul–narcissistic, proud, with a victim mentality and prone to rage and violence. Instead, give me a heart like David–compassionate, obedient to you, taking responsibility for the consequences of his actions, and a defender of the oppressed. 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)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries:

  • Fred & Shirley Leonard
  • Tris & Chris Miller
  • Mark & Michelle Morgan (Cody, Kyle)
  • Michael & Jenn Morgan

Ministry:

  • Genesis World Mission

CLF:

  • That we will devote ourselves to prayer, individually, in small groups, and as a church.

Community: Pray for Star and Eagle

  • That city leaders would submit to God

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Remain alert. Keep standing firm in your faith. Keep on being courageous and strong. Everything you do should be done in love. – 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 (ISV)
