LIFe with God: February 20, 2014

Scripture

Psalm 44

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What key principle did the sons of Korah (authors of this psalm) understand (3-7)? Even though it seemed to them that God had forgotten them, to what did they cling (26)?

Application

Do I understand that I can only have victory through God? When I feel overwhelmed and discouraged and alone, do I call on God, trusting in His faithful love?

Prayer

Dear Father, Help me to maintain an eternal perspective, remembering that I am nothing without You, and that You are always there, faithfully loving me, regardless of the circumstances. 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:

  • Pat & Hannah Kelley
  • Fred & Shirley Leonard
  • Mark & Michelle Morgan (Cody, Kyle)
  • Michael & Jenn Morgan

Ministry:

  • Christian Pro-Life Ministries in Idaho (Idaho Chooses Life, Stanton Health Care, etc)

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
  • That people can find and keep gainful employment
  • For sound financial management by city officials
  • Salvation for unbelievers
  • For the mayor, city council members, and public works officials

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
For we walk by faith, not by sight, and we are confident and satisfied to be out of the body and at home with the Lord. Therefore, whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to be pleasing to Him. – 2 Corinthians 5:7-9 (HCSB)
