Posted on March 2, 2012

Scripture

Genesis 26

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What sin of his father Abraham’s did Isaac repeat? How did God show Isaac He was with him?

Application

Do I learn from the mistakes of others, or do I stubbornly have to make them myself? Do I trust God to bless and provide even when people let me down?

Prayer

Dear Father, Help me not to repeat the sins of my ancestors, but to learn from them instead. Thank You that my life and blessing and provision is not dependent on other people but comes from You! 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.

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

Ministry:

  • Boise Rescue Mission

CLF:

  • That we will be people who are devoted to giving to the Lord’s work and to anyone who has a need.

Community: Pray for outreaches & service projects

  • Creative strategies
  • Volunteers
  • Anointing of the Holy Spirit
  • Believers working together in unity
  • Provision of necessary resources
  • Salvation for people reached

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Not that I have already reached the goal or am already fully mature, but I make every effort to take hold of it because I also have been taken hold of by Christ Jesus. – Philippians 3:12 (HCSB)
