Connect 20

ESTHER 8:1-8

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?

*Click Add Notes below to take notes and email them to yourself.

NOTICE & NOTE

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

God gives each of us influence in some capacity. We all have situations that we can speak into with some authority. We also all have people who trust us and value our opinions. As Christ-followers, we are called to use that influence for His Kingdom and His glory! Where do you have influence? Are you using it for the advancement of His Kingdom or for yourself? 

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

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
