What is your favorite (or least hated) exercise?
Invite the Holy Spirit to speak to all those present tonight.
Ephesians 3:20 NLT: “Now all glory to God, who is able, through the mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”
Read Ephesians 3:6. Your strength is found in your identity as a child of God. As a child of God, you are chosen, loved, and on equal footing with other children of God. There is no pecking order among God’s children; pastors and leaders are not more precious to God than those sitting in the pews.
Why does it make you stronger when you see your identity as a child of God? (Read Ephesians 3:12.)
Read Ephesians 3:16. Your strength is found in the Spirit. You should rely on the Spirit, fellowship with Him, and pray in Him. Having a relationship with the Spirit allows Him to speak through you when you share the gospel and encourage others. Praying in the Spirit allows Him to pray through you when you don’t know what or how to pray.
Share a recent example from your life when you knew the Spirit was talking through or praying through you.
Read Ephesians 3:17–19. Your strength is found in your roots, and your roots will be where your thoughts are. Make sure that you put your roots in God’s love, His Word, His presence, and His people. When your thoughts (and thus your roots) are focused on God and the things of God, you will find rest and peace.
Share an example of when you faced a storm in your life and discovered that your roots in God gave you the strength to withstand it.
This week, during your daily devotional time, allow the Spirit to guide your prayers and pray through you. Make it a point to listen to His gentle voice.
Grow stronger this week by putting your roots in God’s Word. Read your Bible and then think about what you read. Think about it throughout the day. This week, while driving to work, meditate on the different aspects of God’s character: His love, grace, creativity, majesty, mercy, holiness, etc.
