LIFe with God: October 5-6, 2013

Posted on October 5, 2013

Scripture

Daniel 1

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What was Daniel’s request, and why was it granted? What was the result?

Application

Am I willing to risk doing what is right, even when it means denying myself “something better” in the world’s eyes? Do I trust God to bless that and leave the results up to Him?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear God, Thank You for the example of Daniel and his three friends, who were not willing to violate Your commands to them, even when it meant missing out on the royal feasts. While I am not under the same restrictions they were, thanks to Jesus, help me to apply the principle of making obeying and serving You the highest priority in my life. 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)
