    How To Delight in the Lord

  8. Reread Isaiah 55:2-3 and read Isaiah 58:11-14. How does scripture direct us to delight in the Lord? What changes do you feel like the Lord is leading you to make in order to live out what it means to delight in Him?
  9. God designed us with a longing that can’t be satiated in our time on earth because we were created for eternity. Scripture says that Jesus is our great reward. How do these truths impact the way we seek satisfaction, gratification and pleasure in this life?
  10. During the ministry time Pastor Erin gave a challenge to go on a 3 day fast sometime this week. She asked each of us to identify what has become an idol in our lives and to commit to a fast to help break that stronghold off. What type of fast did you commit to and what’s the specific stronghold you are coming against?
