Connect 20

ESTHER 8:9-17

Each day we want you to CONNECT with God through worship, prayer, and His Word.

CALL

As you begin your time in His Word today, take a moment to call out to Him in prayer. Ask Him to "open your eyes" as you read through today's passage.

OBSERVE

As you observe the scripture today, we encourage you to take notes. Notice the emotions, reasons, context. Make sure to note what God wants you to know or do after reading the scripture. What are the takeaways for you?

What notes & takeaways do I have?

EXPLORE & COMMIT

Now that you've identified the takeaways, it's time to explore & examine the areas of your life that God needs to come under the truth. Take a moment to commit & surrender these areas in prayer.

Try this today

Think about what God allows us to be freed from. We are no longer slaves to fear, shame, inadequacy, etc. Rather, God in His infinite love and grace has given us freedom from all of those things! He has gifted us with what we could never achieve otherwise; salvation! Pray with a grateful heart KNOWING that God has saved you from sin! 

TELL

Now it's time to tell and share with others what God is teaching you! Try this:

*Share your encouraging takeaways with others on your social media! Facebook / Instagram

Share your story with us!
We want to celebrate your growth in Christ with you!
