LIFe with God: October 20

Posted on October 20, 2011

Scripture

Exodus 3:1-4:17

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why did God speak to Moses (3:7-10)? How did God respond when Moses was reluctant even after God had repeatedly encouraged him and promised to be with him (4:14a)?

Application

Am I available to God for whatever mission He chooses for me? Do I trust Him and take Him at His word, or am I reluctant to the point of causing Him to be exasperated?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Father God, Thank You for observing the plight of Your people and hearing their cries. You have chosen to work through people to carry out Your will; make me a person who is sensitive to Your leading and who will respond with faith and obedience. Thank You that You never give someone a mission without equipping them and accompanying them! 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:

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

Ministries:

  • Provenance
  • Genesis World Mission

CLF:

  • That we will devote ourselves to prayer, individually, in small groups, and as a church.

Community: Pray for Caldwell

  • 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:
Let us hold on to the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. – Hebrews 10:23 (HCSB)
