LIFe with God: December 18-19

Posted on December 18, 2010

Scripture

Luke 15

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What do the parables of the lost sheep, coin, and son teach about the heart of God?

Application

Do I withdraw from God because I’m not good enough for Him, or do I rest in His love, knowing that His Father-heart wants me to come to Him?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, I thank You that You are a God who seeks the lost and is not willing that any should perish but all should come to repentance. I thank You that Jesus came to seek and save the lost, and that You long for the prodigal to come home to You. Help me to walk, live, and rest in that. I ask 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)
