LIFe with God: March 13, 2019

Posted on March 13, 2019

Scripture

Exodus 19

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What promise did God make to the Israelites? What stipulation did He include with his promise?

Application

Revelation 1:6 and 5:10 state that those who are in Christ are a kingdom of priests, just as God had promised Israel here in Exodus. Do I live like a citizen in God’s kingdom of priests? Do I listen to God and live according to His word?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Father God, Thank You for what You did to the Egyptians and how You carried Israel on eagles’ wings and brought them to Yourself. Thank You that all who are in Christ are spiritually grafted into Israel, as adopted children into a family, by His shed blood. Help me to listen to You and keep Your covenant, and live like a member of Your family and a citizen of Your kingdom of priests, as Your own possession. I pray this 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:

  • Deborah Halkola
  • David & MaryBeth Hollander (Cole, Marcus, Jack, Emma, Lucy)
  • Pat & Hannah Kelley
  • Andy Lanning

Ministry:

  • Chrysalis Women’s Transitional Housing

  • Pray that we would be a church that is dedicated to the breaking of bread, both in the sense of being devoted to observing the Lord’s Supper, and in meeting together for meals to fellowship, to deepen bonds, to heal offenses, and to end disputes.

Community: Pray for our national leaders

  • God’s anointing on them and a desire in them to follow Him
  • For Jesus to once again be Lord and King over our nation
  • For the president and cabinet to seek after God
  • For judges to rule justly and righteously
  • For senators & representatives to pass godly legislation and block sinful bills
  • That our government would protect its citizens and punish evildoers
