God in my Everything - The Three Foundations
Series: God in my Everything
September 22, 2019
Spirituals Disciplines, habits and routines of life, can help us grow in our relationship with God. But when it comes to Spiritual Disciplines, one size does not fit all. We need to find rhythms that work well for our particular shape, for the unique person that God made us. However all Christian models always contain three basic foundations: Scripture, Prayer, and Sabbath. Sabbath is the one that most of us are most tempted to cut the corners on. Could there be some deep and crucial reasons why God makes such a big deal about how important it is for us to experience truth Sabbath. Find out in our podcast this week! See Notes for more details.
The trellis (my “Rule of Life”) that will help me grow is built upon three anchors:
“Observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy, as the LORD your God has commanded you. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work…” Deuteronomy 5:12-14
When will your Sabbath be and how will it be different?
“Be still, and know that I am God;” – Psalm 46:10
One structure for praying holistically:
When, Where, and How will you do your daily prayers?
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path… I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” – Psalm 119:105, 11
This month, what scripture will you read and when will you do it?
(One idea: A Psalm and a chapter from the Gospel of John each day)
A possible scripture to meditate on through
the day this week: Psalm 37:1-2:
“Do not fret… Trust in the Lord and do good.”
