TAKE TIME: August 26-21, 2013

Introduction: It was a vicious cycle that lasted several hundred years: the Israelites sinned against God, He sent other nations to enslave them as punishment, the Israelites repented, and God sent judges to deliver them. We will read several of these cycles this week.

Reading Assignment:
  • Monday - Judges chapter 3
  • Tuesday - Judges 4:1-5:31
  • Wednesday - Judges chapter 6
  • Thursday - Judges chapter 7
  • Friday - Judges 8:1-9:6
  • Saturday - Judges 9:7-57

Memory Verse

Review verses from previous weeks.

Prayer Journal (ACTS)
  • Adoration - This week take time each day to praise God for being patient.
  • Confession - Ask God to reveal hidden sin in your life and then confess it.
  • Thanksgiving - Thank God for times when He has delivered you from sinful circumstances.
  • Supplication - What are your prayer requests this week? List them for future reference so that you can see how God answers.

Search the Scriptures

Look for references for each of the following:
  • Promises that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?
  • References that either refer to or infer something about future events.
  • What does this passage teach about Jesus?
  • Commandments that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?

Putting the Word into Action

One of the things we will read this week is a song of thanksgiving because of God's deliverance. It is now the time of year when students go back to school and the creative juices must flow once more. Pretend to be a school child again and write a creative composition (poetry or prose) to thank God for a time when He delivered you. (This is one of the few weeks - so far - when the action has been a private assignment to be kept between you and God.
