LIFe with God: January 13, 2019

Scripture

Genesis 13

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What does Abram do for Lot that reveals his godly character? And what does Lot do that shows his character is lacking?

Application

Do I humble myself and place others before myself? Do I choose to live among and be influenced by the worldly, ungodly crowd, or do I dedicate myself to God even as I have to live in this ungodly world?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear God my Father, I want to be like Abram and not like Lot. Give me a heart that is humble and chooses to generously serve others instead of claiming my own rights. Give me a desire to follow You and make Your ways my priority instead of desiring what the world offers. 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)
