Life Applications from the Bible – Vol. 32

Life Applications from the Bible – Vol. 32

I have found so many great life applications in Genesis this week! In fact, chapter 24 was so amazing that I think I am going to do a Saturday Morning Devotional on it alone. I hope you are enjoying Genesis as much as I am.


Here are some of the life applications I found this week:

Life Applications in Genesis

  • Gen. 21:19 – Many times the answers we are looking for are right in front of us. When we go through hard or uncertain times, we need to ask the Lord to open our eyes. He will show us His provision, answers, and blessings. (See an earlier post on this scripture about Hagar.)

  • Gen. 22: 3,13 – Abraham paid attention to and followed all of the details of the Lord’s instructions for him. I wonder what would have happened if he would have decided that he knew a better place to do the sacrifice – would the ram have been stuck in a thicket there too? I am sure the Lord would have still provided, but still – partial obedience isn’t really obedience.

  • Genesis 25:31-32 – Don’t trade something valuable for temporary pleasures. Afterward you will feel regret and end up despising it all.

Life Application Resources


This resource from ESV.org is specifically about steps you can take to help you understand how to apply God’s Word to your life. Take a look at this great resource – “How to Apply the Bible in Daily Life.”


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, listen to what He is telling you, and please share them with us all.

  1. Yes to all of this, Susan! Obedience can definitely be tough especially when the answer is not something we want to hear or feel is unfair. It’s so important to remember He provision, answers, and blessings because most of the time we just want the blessings. Love these posts sweet friend and can’t wait to see more from Genesis, CoCo
