LIFe with God: March 8

Posted on March 8, 2012

Scripture

Genesis 31

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What was the source of the conflict between Jacob and Laban? How did God protect Jacob? How did God use the situation to further His plan?

Application

Do I remember to seek God (and listen for Him) when I am in a conflict with someone? Do I trust Him to take care of me and to fulfill His promises? Do I remember that He is in control and His plans are always good?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear God, Thank You that even in the midst of conflict, You are there and in control and faithful. Help me to trust You to always work things out for the good and for Your glory. 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
  • Joe & Sheala Lehosit
  • 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 single adults…

  • To embrace Christ as their best friend and lover of their souls
  • To more fully grasp the family heart of God
  • That God will bring them Godly friends to care for and support them
  • That God will give them a peace and drive away lonliness
  • That God will provide them with meaningful work & ministry in which to use their gifts

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. All of you, take up My yoke and learn from Me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for yourselves. – Matthew 11:28-29 (HCSB)
