LIFe with God: October 27

Posted on October 27, 2011

Scripture

Exodus 12

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did the Israelites have to do to be sure the Lord would pass over them when carrying out His judgment of death on the firstborn? What did this requirement signify regarding the future?

Application

Do I trust wholly and exclusively in the blood of the Lamb for God’s wrath and final judgment to pass me by?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Father God, In the first Passover, it was the blood of the lamb on the doorposts that kept death from Your people. I thank you, Lord for the blood of THE Lamb–the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world–Jesus Christ! I thank You that by that one offering He took death and the wrath of God away from all who receive Him for 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:

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