Scripture

2 Samuel 8

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why was David victorious over his enemies (6, 14)? How did David respond (15)?

Application

Do I live in the victory won for me by Christ (Romans 8:31-39)? Do I seek, as far as it is possible with me, justice and righteousness for others?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Heavenly Father, Help me to live in the victory that Christ has already won, rather than in the defeat of my own sinful fleshly efforts. Though i am not the king of a nation, as far as it is possible with me, help me to seek and provide justice and righteousness for others. 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:

  • Mike Daniels
  • Theresa Daniels
  • Travis Davidson (Andrew, Maddy)
  • Pat Dumandan
  • Ken & Twilla Eden (Mattea, Joseph, Joshua, Sophia, Jonathan)
  • Gary Friend

Missionaries:

  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania

CLF:

  • That Christian Life Fellowship would be a church that is devoted to the Word of God, and that we would be doers of it and not just hearers; that we would study the Word and so always be prepared to give everyone an answer–in season and out of season–and be approved workers who do not need to be ashamed, able to accurately understand and explain it.

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

Operation Christmas Child:

  • Pray that the boxes will open doors for children to hear the Good News in parts of the world that are typically closed to proclaiming the Gospel.

Catechism

PART 1: GOD, CREATION AND FALL, LAW

Question 2: What is God?

Children’s Answer: God is the creator and sustainer of everyone and everything.

Adult’s Answer: God is the creator and sustainer of everyone and everything. He is eternal, infinite, and unchangeable in His power and perfection, goodness and glory, wisdom, justice, and truth. Nothing happens except through Him and by His will.

Memory Verse

Psalm 86:8-10,15 (HCSB)

Lord, there is no one like You among the gods, and there are no works like Yours. All the nations You have made will come and bow down before You, Lord, and will honor Your name. For You are great and perform wonders; You alone are God. But You, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger and rich in faithful love and truth.
