Week Sixteen

Welcome!  We pray that you have all had a precious time worshipping the Lord this morning!  Below you will find some thought provoking questions that will provide you a starting point to your journal writing to complete this week.  We hope that you will find this time soul satisfying!

Our reading this week was Ezra 1 - Nehemiah 13:31
...


1. Sometimes we limit God in our minds, assuming that He can’t or won’t answer a specific prayer. What big requests would you like to present to the LORD? Pray big prayers and have faith that God can do what to the human mind seems positively impossible.

“In the first year of King Cyrus of Persia, the LORD fulfilled Jeremiah’s prophecy by stirring the heart of Cyrus to put his proclamation into writing and to send it throughout his kingdom.” (Ezra 1:1)

2. What causes you to delay in confessing your sins? What sins have been piling up and now block the way to wholehearted worship. Lay them all before the LORD - remove anything that stands between you and the Savior.

“I prayed, ‘O my God, I am utterly ashamed; I blush to lift up my face to you. For our sins are piled higher than our heads, and our guilt has reached the heavens.’” (Ezra 9:6)

3. Write down these three headings: participation, holiness and joy. Consider how you have experienced each in your worship - whether personally or corporately. Jot down ways you can incorporate these elements into your worship habit.


“Here is the list of the priests and Levites who had returned with Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel and Jeshua the high priests: Seraiah, Jeremiah, Ezra…” (Nehemiah 12:1)

Welcome to Scripture Saturday!

This coming week's memory verses are Job 19: 25, 26...

But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and that He will stand upon the earth at last. And after my body has decayed, yet in  my body, I will see God! I will see Him for myself. Yes, I will see Him with my own eyes.  (NLT)

Have a blessed and precious day and week everyone!
