Questions for Reflection for Study of Genesis 13-16
After the flood, God made a promise to Noah that He would never flood the
earth again and the symbol of this promise is the rainbow. Today, God can
provide music for our ears, laughter for our soul, and a rainbow after every
storm because of His love demonstrated to us through His son Jesus. His Word
provides food for the mind and His Son creates light for understanding so our
acceptance of Jesus as the Son of God truly washes sins away.
The Bible is not about great people doing things for God; it is just
regular people doing extraordinary things because of an amazing God. He knows
each of us by name and has a place for each of us in this world. That is why it
is important to take the initiative in being prepared for each day. Being the
best “you” everyday so God can do His work.
In life, we all have doubts but those who can step ahead even while
having doubts are the people God can use to do great things. It takes humility
and it takes the willingness to learn from each other. Associating with others
of integrity is important along with trust and when our trust is in God’s way,
we are assured of getting to our destination.
As the journey continues through God’s Word for the weeks to come. The
mission of this blog is to bring out ways to apply His Word in our life at
work, at home, and within our neighborhoods. The questions for reflection for
the study of Genesis 13-16 below will help bring out some thoughts and ideas
over the next two weeks.
What is Abraham and Lot’s problem? How does Abraham resolve the problem?
How does the way you settle differences and arguments reveal your trust (or
lack of trust) in God? What does Lot’s choice reveal about his character?
How did Sarah and Abraham try to “push” God? What is their basic problem?
In what ways do your actions affect future generations?
The above reading
plan will be used as I share over the next few posts. It’s important to have a
plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Him as
Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day with Him amazing! At
this link: God’s Plan for Us,
is a post about accepting God’s plan or reaffirming our “YES” for Christ.
Feel free to respond with a short
note or a comment about any of the questions above. Also, I welcome any other
thoughts or ideas, favorite inspirational videos, photos, or favorite Bible
verses. Just add them to the comments or to a Facebook page I’ve set up at this
Day With God.
