Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What rebuke did Joshua give to seven tribes of Israel?

Application

Is there an area in my life right now where I am not trusting God’s promises and holding myself back from receiving His best for me? Am I allowing fear to keep me from following and obeying God?

Prayer

Dear Lord, Even though Israel had seen You work mighty miracles on their behalf, more than half of the tribes were still hesitant and procrastinating rather than stepping out in faith and following Your direction. Keep me from following their example. Help me to believe You and obey you without fear or hesitation. 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.

  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luke)
  • Keith Rast
  • Andrea Rodriguez (Willie, Yulieta)

But when the completion of the time came, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. – Galatians 4:4-5 (HCSB)
