Scripture

Judges 2

Observation

What did the Angel of the LORD (a pre-incarnate appearance of Christ Himself) tell the Israelites, and why (1-3)? What was Joshua’s legacy (7)? What about the next generation (10-19)

Application

Am I more like the people during or following Joshua’s life? What kind of legacy will I leave for God?

Prayer

Dear Father, I ask that You would help me to be like the people during Joshua’s lifetime; worshiping You and praising You for Your great works. Keep me from becoming like the following generation, who forgot about You and Your mighty works, and doing what was evil in Your sight. Help me to live so that I have a legacy like Joshua! 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.

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