Topic: The Genesis Story: Part 146- It’s time for A Sacrifice!
Bible Reading: Genesis 46
Memory Verse: Genesis 46: 1b
He offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac.
Good morning ladies and gentlemen! How are you doing? Hope you had a wonderful morning! Though safety measures are toughened up all over the world; I pray that you do not loose faith in God. Continue to trust in Him. Continue to spend time with Him! Continue to follow the guidelines provided by the WHO and the health organisations of your respective countries.
Today, Sammie’s Daily Dose is back with Part 146 of the Genesis Story. We would be looking at the act of sacrifices. Today, the Holy Spirit wants to encourage us to offer sacrifices unto God; during this uneasy period! Are you ready for the message? Well, let us get right into the message!
A lot of people assume that there is no need to offer sacrifices to God! Well! These people are correct to an extent. We do not offer sacrifices unto like in the Old Testament- slaughtering and burning animals to the heavens. However, we still offer sacrifices unto God. There are several by which we do so! There is no correct formula or guide to this!
Offering sacrifices could be done through financial commitments, time-sacrifices, jobs, etc. The sacrifices offered to God, differ from person to person. The Holy Spirit has to direct you into what kind of sacrifice to offer. A sacrifice can be a peace offering to God or an intercessory symbol. This is the time we all need to offer sacrifices on to God. Some sacrifices are used to call upon God attention; just like in Jacob’s situation.
In Genesis 46, we see that Jacob travelled with (all) his belongings to meet his son, Joseph. Once he offered a sacrifice to God; God spoke to Him. God’s words were reassuring. God’s words provided direction and comfort. During these times, we need to ask God to comfort us and give us direction. Just like He did for Jacob. We need to rise up and offer sacrifices unto God. He would answer you!
Today’s message is a very short one! I pray that it speaks to you and drives you to spend more time with God or support a missions group financially! Let the Holy Spirit guard your hearts and help you to offer the right sacrifice. God bless you! Continue to stay safe!
The prayer below is for anyone who does not know God or maybe has been apart from God for a while. God is here to pour His favor over your life. All you have to do is call out to Him. Make that decision today!
I come to you today as a sinner. I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus is your Son and He came on to this earth to die for my sins. Dear Lord, let your Son come and fill me. Lord, I ask that He cleanses me off my sins. I am ready to stand for you and profess your Name. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
If you repeated this prayer with all the sincerity of your heart, congratulations!! You are now a part of God’s family. Welcome to the greatest family ever. Heaven is jubilating on your arrival. Your fellow brothers and sisters are also excited to have you on board.
Being a child of God is a wonderful thing. The road might not always be easy, but God is with you each and every step of the way. Guiding you, helping you and encouraging up. You will never regret this decision; I can assure you of that. Two things I would recommend for you to do are;
Get yourself a Bible (in a version you understand) and meditate on it day and night. In Joshua 1:8, we are told that when you meditate on the Word day and night, you will be prosperous and successful.
Find a Bible- believing church to attend and fellowship with other Christians. This would help you grow spiritually.
I am excited that you made this decision. Welcome! If you would like some help or more understanding into anything, you can leave a message (adding your email address) and I would be willing and happy to help you out
