Personal Spiritual Exercises
Just like physical exercises help strengthen and stretch our bodies for healthy living, these spiritual exercises are meant to move us spiritually in ways that may be new so we might experience inner growth. Since God longs for us to experience Him with our whole selves—mind, body, spirit—we invite you along each week to strengthen your souls with suggestions and prompts. Next week in Life Group, take a few moments to share how the Lord may have used this exercise in your life.
Scripture Focus: It’s so great to discuss the truth of who God is with our group, and yet we would never know any of it without the fullness of God’s Word to teach us about Him. This next week, take the scripture passages that correspond with the statements about God that captivated you the most, and find a few minutes each day to think through those verses. What could they mean for your life as a whole? What would it look like to live them out today?
Prayer Focus: In chapters 9 & 10 of Exodus, God’s power is on full display for all to see. How often do we stop and praise God for all of the power that He holds? Together, let’s recognize His absolute reign over the world He created.
No strength on this earth could compare
to your power and glory.
All of creation points to your greatness and divine authority.
Everything in heaven and on earth is yours,
and you uphold the universe by the word of your power.
Allow me to see your majesty,
and to praise you more every day.
