“Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible”

God gives me Victor over my circumstances when I choose not to be a Victim to them.

               

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10

            

Soak and Share

Here are some practical ways you can apply today’s message and share them with others.

MEMORY VERSES: Zephaniah 3:17

“The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”

PRAYER:

Lord, thank you for bringing me to where I am today. Even though there are circumstances in my life out of my control, help me to remember who I am and to stand firm in my convictions. Thank you that my life is part of a bigger picture and that you are always with me. Amen.

ASK & REFLECT:

  • What are the challenges in my life that are overwhelming me? What can I do to stay focused on what is important?

  • How can I put on the brakes when everyone around me is trying to change who I am?

NEXT STEPS:

  • Continue considering ways you can get involved with LifeSpring. See a volunteer or call the church office for more details.

  • READ & Reflect: Daniel 1

  • Invite someone next week as we continue our new message series, OVERWHELMED
