LIFe with God: January 22, 2014

Scripture

Psalms 5-7

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What affirmation of God’s provision does David make at the end of Psalm 5? In 6:9? How does he display his faith in God, even before God has acted on his behalf (7:17)?

Application

Do I trust in God’s provision and protection? Do I truly believe He hears and answers prayer? Do I thank Him and praise Him even before I see Him answer and act?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Help me not to have anxiety or lose sleep over the affairs of this life, but rather build my faith in You to provide and protect. I believe that You hear my prayers, that You see every shed tear and hear every heartbreak. And like David I thank You and praise You in advance for putting everything right, whether You choose to do it in this life or wait until eternity! I pray this 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 & Jamie Haberkorn (Hannah, Sean)
  • Deborah Halkola
  • David & MaryBeth Hollander (Cole, Marcus, Jack)
  • Bob & Peggy Hoover

Ministry:

  • Chrysalis Women’s Transitional Housing

CLF:

  • Pray that we would be a church that is dedicated to the breaking of bread, both in the sense of being devoted to observing the Lord’s Supper, and in meeting together for meals to fellowship, to deepen bonds, to heal offenses, and to end disputes.

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
But thanks be to God, who always puts us on display in Christ and through us spreads the aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. For to God we are the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. – 2 Corinthians 2:14-15 (HCSB)
