Delivered On: February 19, 2023


Memorize and Reflect

1 John 3:1
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

Prayer Direction

Ask God to give you a growing awareness of His lavish love and provision in your life. Ask God to reveal to you the many blessings in your life. Thank him for each one as they come to mind.

“Live It!” Challenge

Spend 15 minutes each day this week, praying and reflecting on the blessings in your life. Write down EVERY blessing God brings to mind. If you feel led, continue beyond this week, maybe even the next year.
