LIFe with God: February 18-19

Posted on February 18, 2012

Scripture

Genesis 15

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What promise did God make to Abram in verse 1? How can this be said to be the foundation of every promise that follows? In ancient times, a covenant was sealed by dividing animals in two after which both parties would walk down the middle. What is the significance of God going between the pieces (in the form of the fire pot and torch) while Abram slept?

Application

Do I believe God fully and rest on His promise to keep me and never leave or forsake me? Do I believe God initiates and keeps His covenants without any need of help from me?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in heaven, Thank You for Your grace! For You made Your covenant with Abram while he slept–You took the initiative and he could do nothing to help. You promised to keep Your word to him. Thank You that You do the same for me in Jesus! In His 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)
