LIFe with God: January 21, 2021

Scripture

Hosea 10

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

From the Life Application Study Bible: Israel prospered under Jeroboam II, gaining military and economic strength. But the more prosperous the nation became, the more love it lavished on idols. The Israelites were taken in by the lie that military power could keep them safe. Because Israel had put its confidence in military might rather than in God, it would be destroyed by military power. Israel’s king, who had led the people into idol worship, would be the first to fall. Divine judgment is sometimes swift, but it is always sure.

Application

Do I place my trust for my safety and provision in anything other than God?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
My Father and my God, Keep me from the sin of trusting in and seeking out anything more than You. In Jesus’ Name I pray, 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:

  • Corey & Sheryl Morasch
  • Cody Morgan
  • Kyle Morgan
  • Mark & Michelle Morgan
  • Michael & Jenn Morgan (Eleanor)

Ministry:

  • Christian Pro-Life Ministries in Idaho (Idaho Chooses Life, Stanton Health Care, etc)
