Congratulations!! You have made it half way through the study! This can be the time where we get down or have fallen behind and are tempted to give up. Please stick with it!! It is worth it. Hang in there, you will be glad you did. I am praying God gives each of you strength to carry on and blessings for your perseverance.
Let’s move on…
Step 1 – Prayer: As always, let us begin before the throne:
Abba, thank you for the incredible gift of your abiding presence in each of us. You gave us Your Holy Spirit as our Counselor, through whom we receieve guidance for this life and the wondrous treasure of intimacy with You. Thank you for revealing yourself to us through the study of your Living Word. Thank you for never giving up on us, even when we want to give up. Please give us strength to continue on this journey, and open our hearts and minds to what You would have for us. We praise You, Lord. In the saving name of Jesus, amen.
Step 3 – Discussion Comments:
Then, answer one or both of these questions either here or on the facebook group page.
- Question 1 – Our Rock: This week we studied how God wants to take away our heart of stone (Ezek 36.26), and He wants to be our Rock (Eph 2.20). What do you think about those two doctrines put together – God removes stone to give us stone? What does that mean to you – have you applied it in your life?
- Question 2 – What do you think?: What stood out to you or touched your heart most deeply during this week of study?
Step 4: Homework for this week: Do week 4 (pages 84-107) in your DoD book by next Tuesday.
Siestas, thank you for praying for each other. In Matthew 14.19, Jesus did not feed the people by himself, he enlisted the disciples to help. We need God first and foremost, we also need each other.
I am so thankful to be seeking God with you.
