Jesus and Praying

This week I finished the book of Numbers and started the book of Deuteronomy along with continuing in Luke and Proverbs. The following are some of my thoughts:
  • In Luke 4 the demons acknowledged Jesus as the Son of God
  • What boundaries has God established in your life and ministry? (Numbers 34)
  • Jesus often withdrew to lonely places to pray (Luke 5:16) How often do we?
  • God said to Israel, you have stayed here long enough, break camp and advance (Deuteronomy 1:6)
  • A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will be refreshed (Proverbs 11:25)
  • In Deuteronomy 2 God guided Israel under Moses to move, to fight, to pay others for food and water
  • Jesus spent the entire night praying before selecting his twelve disciples the following day (Luke 6)
Well, today marks the completion of my 45th year of life. Highlights of the weekend include dinner with the family and my parents Friday evening, brunch with family Saturday morning, Saturday evening gathering at Apex Community and a small birthday bash with ice cream cake afterwards. Sunday should be a full day of rest and contemplation.
