LIFe with God: March 3-4

Posted on March 3, 2012

Scripture

Genesis 27

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did Jacob and Rebekah do to deceive Isaac? What were the consequences?

Application

Do I take it upon myself to manipulate circumstances to “help God” bless me? Is deception, lying, and taking what is not rightfully mine likely to bring me closer to God?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in heaven, Thank You that You can use anything to bring about You plan and purpose, but may I never try to make it happen via my fleshly desires and decisions. Help me to trust You to honor my obedience and leave it in Your hands. 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)
