Life Applications from the Bible – Vol. 31
I am loving rereading Genesis! It is so amazing to read stories again and again, yet the Lord makes them new every time. Eventually, I would love to pull out my notes from the other times I have read Genesis and make a comparison. He seems to give us the life applications we need at the exact time we need them!
Life Applications in Genesis
- Gen. 13:11-13
- Lot chose the best land for monetary gain. Money isn’t everything. We will see later in Genesis that his choices caused him lots of problems.
- It is important to watch who we associate with and the places we go. When you hang around sin, you may receive some of the consequences as well.
- We can become desensitized to sin when we are around it all the time. After a while, we don’t even notice it.
- Gen. 14:12 – We tend to think of Abram/Abraham as a meek Nomad or shepherd. He was a mighty warrior! When the Lord calls us to action, we all have a warrior spirit within us.
- Genesis 15:11 – Things of this world will try to take your sacrifices to the Lord – your time, talent, attention, money, affection, etc. Be diligent in driving the “birds of prey” away. Protect your sacrifices to the Lord at all costs!
- Genesis 19:4-5 – When perversion becomes accepted in society, no one is even ashamed of their actions or tries to hide them.
Life Application Resources
In case you missed this resource last week, I wanted to share it one more time. If you struggle with reading the Word and applying it to your life, I highly recommend reading the post, “Applying God’s Word.” It is based on the following scripture:
“But be doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”
If you have joined me recently, these weekly life applications from the Bible are examples of some of the comments I write in the Bibles I am giving to my grandchildren when they graduate. Click here to see the post where I explain this eternal gift idea.
I pray these weekly life applications help you in some way. Until next week, stay in the Word and listen to what He is sharing with you.
Have a Grace & Joy-filled day!
